“Make no mistake: this is a business machine...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I know the Auberge de la Ferme since the 80's. Then, it was a small, nice and authentic family run business. Loved to go there, good personal service, great food & wines, nice accomodation, well organised. There was only 1 hotel/restaurant then.

Fast forward to 2013. Apart from the original ferme, there are now guest houses, other restaurants, meeting facilities, shops selling their own produce, wild parks, farms, wine yards, touristic trains... you name it... it's like they entirely own what was once the nicest village with the most magnificent view in the Ardennes.

There is nothing wrong with that, and I have nothing against entrepreneurship, at the contrary, but this should not interfere with the essential values of the hospitality business.
The atmosphere from the early years is just ... gone. Countless employees are necessary to run the place, it's not the same family run business any more. The place is breathing business, business, business...

Having said that: the Auberge de la Ferme, Inc. certainly still is good value for money, and quality. For a corporate event, seminar, etc, this is the place to be in the Ardennes.

But the authentic rural spirit is no more and that's a pity...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

This is our 5th time back and each time seems better than the first. Each have been a great experience whether in winter or summer months. The staff are very friendly and make you welcomed. This time we had a room with a juccuzzi bath, it was very relaxing after a long drive. Food as always is excellent local produce and the wine list extensive and reasonably priced. We shall return.

If you want real quality with a true family run establishment, then you will not be disappointed! Cuisine is excellent, rooms delightful and location deep in the forest countryside, a true find!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2010

We've been going to Auberge de la Ferme on average once a year for the past 4 years. The main reason of course is the food which is second to none. On our last trip I was delighted to find they had renewed their rooms. We were a last minute booking and took the last room in the place. It was small, but so beautiful with a huge bed and great bathroom.

Dining is the event for the evening. Come down for a pre-dinner drink in front of the fire at about 7:00. Have a long leisurely dinner followed by coffee in front of their other fire and then crash into bed at 11:00pm - heaven. Next morning, up in time to make a big hole in the breakfast spread - where do we find the room - before donning walking boots for a long tramp across the hills.

Rochehaut sits on the hillside above a bend in the Semois River. It is a well known beauty spot and has some of the best walking in the Belgian Ardennes. The tourist office has maps and their are masses of trails to help you work up an appetite.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2010

An atmospheric auberge at the centre of a village with spectacular views across the valley of the River Semois. We stayed on the 3 night midweek break which was excellent value.The 5 course plat de jour was of high quality served by helpful and knowledgeable staff. In temperatures of 30c the option of dining on the terrace was welcomed. The room was well equipped with a balcony and views across the village, ideal for drinking the complimetary champagne. Despite arriving on a motorbike and speaking only rudimetary french we received faultless service and didn't meet another Brit !!
