“Lovely food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We have just spent the week end at this lovely hotel celebrating a 65th with a group of friends. The bedrooms in the recently built annex were large & comfortable with super bathrooms. The sun deck on top with the spa and sauna was very inviting,clean and well equipped with towels. I think that the food surpassed all expectations - absolutely first class and Ruud couldn't have been more accommodating with any dietary requirements. The service was excellent - and the new young trainee waiter, who initially seemed quite daunted by such a demanding group of Brits, soon relaxed and was very hard working!
The parking was plentiful at the hotel and it is only a short walk into the little village of Stavelot with its numerous little bars, Abbey and Museum - well worth looking round. The hotel is only a few miles drive to Spa for the race track and motor museum and near Coo with its waterfalls and cable car. Altogether a really great hotel with no negative comments.

Room Tip: Rooms in the annex are quite near the road and some traffic noise could be heard - but not enough to...

This hotel combines the charme of an old mansion and the modern architecture of its residence annex. The rooms in the annex are tastefully equipped, stunning bathrooms, and on the top waits a spa area with a sauna and a steam bath and a terrace with a stunning view over Stavelot and its old abbey. The food we had that evening was clearly above even high expectations and star-level - never had a better ris de veaux in my life. Warm welcome, friendly staff and owners, and a generous breakfast which was complemented on Easter sunday with sparkling wine and decoration. Five minute walk from the center of Stavelot.

Ruud & Marion, the Dutch owners have turned this into a wonderful romantic comfortable country house hotel with marvellous food.
The facilities were excellent & it's worth dressing up for.
The food which Ruud had pre-agreed a change for my dietary restrictions was 1st class.
It was an excellent friendly up market experience as long as you can afford it.

This hotel has all of the necessary comfort. Big rainshower, soft beds, clean rooms, nice and friendly staff, a lot of parking available, good breakfast. Nothing negative to say.

The environment is not that impressive. Stavelot is a very small and calm town. If you like taking walks in nature then you are at the right spot. If you like to do some more, like some culture or meet people, this is not the place for you.

We stayed in Hotel Val d'Ambleve for the 3rd time in the last couple of years. This time we had our room in the Residence annex, only some 25 yards away from the main house: a modern architecture building with nice rooms, on its top floor there is a wellness section with sauna and steambath. Rooms are equipped with all required amenities (incl. free Wifi in the rooms), comfortable beds and good internal sound proofing. Most rooms are on the building's side facing the road, some early morning car sounds probably being the only disadvantage of staying here. On a previous stay we had a room in another annex, a house called Le Jardin des Princes, at least equally nice, some 300 meters away in a very quiet side street.
The restaurant is very good, we had a 4 course dinner the first evening and a 6 course gastronomy dinner the second. Breakfast is in buffet form, good choice but strangely enough without hot breakfast option (maybe there is, but we weren't asked if we were interested). Very friendly and helpful staff. Ruud and Marion, the Dutch owners, treat you as true "guests of the house", in a very personal style. Hotel Le Val d'Ambleve certainly has our recommendation for a few days stay in the Ardennes region, it serves as a warm and friendly home after a day hike through the beautiful surrounding hills.

Room Tip: Most rooms in the Residence Annex face the street, some early morning car disturbance. The Jardin...

We spent a weekend in October in this hotel, and it was perfect. Very clean, very comfortable room in the new part of the hotel. There is also a sauna which we could use for free.
We had a dinner in the hotel and it was delicious. Would really recommend it. Despite relatively high price, it is worth trying it. Delicious.
The place is excellent for a relaxing weekend.
