Due to a glowing recommendation from his sister - my husband decided to surprise me for my 50th Birthday by treating me to a two night stay at this truly beautiful hotel -surely one of the most photographed and picturesque sites in Belgium. The owners and the staff of both the hotel and it's restaurant - which was in a lovely building nearby, were extraordinary. Here's why: unknown to us the above mentioned sister in law had also booked in and travelled from the UK to surprise us with family in tow and the staff managed the impossible task of making certain our paths did not cross from our check in until we arrived at the restaurant that evening. The surprise of finding everyone there at our table was an incredibly surreal and emotional moment and there were tears of joy all round. This happy memory will stay with me forever!
I can't praise them enough for doing everything possible to make sure an "old woman's" Birthday was so special.
I love this hotel and I'm so glad my sister in law loved it too otherwise we would never have gone. From the moment you enter it's fragrant lobby [everywhere was scented with the delicious and subtle aroma of designer candles] you are transported to a magical place by way of the ultra elegant design and extremely clever use of space. Wether in the cosy and romantic little bar area or lingering over the many objets d'art and a fabulous canal view from the breakfast room or the accomodation itself, this atmospheric little gem is an interior designer's dream - quite literally, as this is my line of work I can speak with authority, these people have great taste and an eye for detail. I can't wait for my next visit.
I noticed some negative reviews so I can only say that in our case the service was professional and faultless throughout so am guessing they could be due to misunderstanding or language barriers.
