“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I had heard of this hotel many years ago. Even KIng Albert is said to have been a regular of the restaurant when driving around on his motorbike. The location and the building is still fantastic, but the service is not at the level of a 4 star hotel. In a 4 star hotel I don't expect the shower head to leak on all sides, I expect a soap holder in the shower, I expect a shower mat, I expect Wifi (because the hotel is in the middle of nowhere and there is virtually no mobile coverage), etc... We had booked dinner in the hotel and whilst we were getting ready the restaurant rang several times in our room to ask when we were going to be downstairs. WE had not booked a specific time nor been asked to, so it seems unnecessary to ring 2-3 times before 20.30. When we showed up at 20.30 the owner was heard to utter "enfin....". At the table I ordered a bottle of 2006 Dauzac Grand Cru but when the bottle arrived it had already been opened and it was a (lower quality) 1997. No comment was made. I had a turbot as a main course and it was the most forgettable turbot ever. The foie gras though was delicious. Management was polite but there was no warmth. King Albert most probably doesn't ride motorcycles anymore today. I strongly doubt he visits this restaurant anymore either.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We had a written confirmation for a Junior Suite (located in the first floor of the main building). Once we arrived, we were not told anything just given a key. The key number was not one of the two Junior Suites (#1 or #3); when mentioning this, the reply was aggressive: “we have priorities for other guests who stay 12 days”. We were given instead “chambre de Luxe” on the ground floor of the nearby residence (another building).
First, the hotel should have respected their written conformation.
Second, the hotel could have contacted us before our arrival to mention that our confirmed Junior Suite is no longer available.
Third, the receptionist should have mentioned it before giving the keys. If we would not have noticed the key number, she would have continued to ignore it.
Fourth, the reaction was aggressive and unpleasant.
Fifth, the hotel could have made a little gesture (e.g. offering a glass) for not respecting the written conformation. None of such gestures happened.
We are unable to recommend this hotel.

Very nice, cosy hotel, only 10 rooms, nice infrastructure. We had a gastronimic arrangement. Diner was fabulous, but 5 courses in 1.30h is too fast... They have an extensive choice of good French wines. Service was nice, but not exceptional, I think it was the waiter's first job. The location is marvellous, they have a nice garden and a fine terrace. They offer golf, but it's not worthwhile to go to this hotel to golf. It was a good hotel, but I would praise it more as a good 3 star hotel instead of a 4 star hotel.
The area is magnificent, you can make nice hikes, visit Bouillon, the abbay of Orval, or just have a drink in Florenville.
