A friend recommended the Moulin to us, and needing a quiet weekend away together, we booked (directly with the hotel) two nights at demi pension (breakfast and dinner included), at 185 euros per night per person - please note that includes a really special dinner! The room was nice and spacious, with excellent bathroom as noted by other reviewers.
We left Brussels a little before 6 pm after work on Friday, and by 7:30 were ensconced with aperitifs in the lounge at the Moulin, already extremely impressed by the quick, efficient, friendly yet unobtrusive service. Dinner was impeccable, and we chose the wine option whereby they pour a different wine with each course (which is 20 euros extra but really the best way, I think, if you are only two). Breakfast hours are highly civilized - you can wander down any time before 11. The next day we took the map our hostess provided us with and set off on a 16k walk along the Lesse river, coming back in the afternoon for a sauna and a sit-down out on the lawn next to the river with a well-earned beer. Then another gorgeous meal and a sound sleep, followed by the same thing the next day, except only 14k and then back into the car to go home when we got back to the hotel. As we set out that morning, our hostess said reassuringly, "Please feel free to come in and use the ladies' room when you get back from your walk"! They are lovely people and the staff are obviously devoted to keeping it well-run.
Another time we would take Friday afternoon off and fit in a walk and sauna before dinner. the countryside around Daverdisse is tranquil and lovely - hard to believe it's only 10 minutes form the E411 motorway!
The only vaguely negative thing I would say is that the drinks are expensive and can add up, if you have aperitifs, wine, digestifs... Also, and this is very minor and probably not a problem for a lot of people, but the toilets are just that bit too high for one's feet to touch the ground properly!
