The positive: The castle and the grounds are gorgeous. (55 hectares of land / woods!) Breakfast or drinks on the pretty terrace or winter garden are thoroughly enjoyable. The service is very friendly. I particularly appreciated the 24 hours reception service, as the 1st night we stayed there, mosquitoes made it impossible for me to sleep, until I called reception in the middle of the night in desperation and they gave me an anti-mosquito machine. Phew! Beds were good, room was spacious and pleasant, with lovely view on the gardens. Nice touch to make a ping-pong table + snooker available to guests. Some disappointing elements: the rooms are in serious need of renovations, as it seems the wall-to-wall carpet has been in place for the last 30 years... The bathroom was also in serious need of a makeover, since the furniture was bad quality and peeling. No air conditioning in the rooms, and it was VERY hot, which made it difficult to sleep. I understand it may be extra difficult to install modern amenities in an old castle, but how about providing guests with a fan, at least? There was a plastic protective sheet on the mattress which was so disagreeable (kept bunching up beneath the sheet, super hot / uncomfortable) that we took it off in the middle of the night. (Are they afraid their guests are incontinent??) Breakfast was rich and varied, but they insisted on cutting everything up beforehand, so that the bread was already stale / hard by the time we came down for breakfast. Also, they served Lipton instead of real tea, which for a place of that caliber / price I found extremely disappointing. (Granted, I'm a tea fanatic.) We were disappointed by the restaurant as well, since we'd heard wonders about it, but during the one evening we ate there at least, all our dishes were extremely bland. Maybe we were unlucky and it was the normal chef's day off? Finally, it's a pity the sauna / jacuzzi are extra (50 euros for 3 hours!). For the price of the room, they could have included a couple of hours for free.…
The outside part of the castle is gorgeous, as is the beautiful park it is on. Just like the picture. We were welcomed very friendly by Alexander and escorted to our room. The room was some kind of faded glory, not decorated with love. The bed was good but not matching with the rest of the interior. When we used the shower the whole bathroom got wet because it din't have screens, and when we pulled the plug from the dryer the socket came from the wall. That was the first time we thought hmmmm, EU 145 for this room might be overpriced. But then, since it was my husbands birthday we decided to make the best of it. After dinner we would come back and have some nice good whiskeys in the beautiful hotel bar. That was the plan. Didn't turn out that way. We had to be back before 23.30 because then the gate would close and after that we would not be able to get in, they explicitly warned for that. So to be on the safe side, we were back at 22:30, looking forward to the bar in the castle which would be open until midnight, as said on the website. However, when we asked for a drink Alexander told us that they had the snooker-room available for us, we could get our own drinks from the fridge and pay for it the next day. He then went to bed. So we were left in the snookerroom, couldn't play snooker because the white ball was missing, sat in there with our coats on because it was not heated, and had a few beers from the fridge, The next day we had breakfast, but the meat and cheese etc was very little to chose from, and you had to bake your own eggs. Then we got the bill. 145 for the room, we knew that. Then 40 euro for 2 breakfasts which is very overpriced considering the service (or better, the lack of it) but the topper was they charged us EU 32 for 4 beers! 8 Euro per beer that we had to take out of the fridge itself! There was no price list there. My husband is too polite to make remarks about it, but we really felt ripped off. It is not that we cannot afford it, we can but we still like value for money and the feeling of having been ripped of stayed with us the whole day. We had the feeling that we were served off as too unimportant and what should have been a great birthday evening turned into a very disappointing experience. So our conclusion is: a 5 star price for a 3 star hotel and a 1 star service. Never never again, there are far better and nicer hotels in this price range that we can recommend.…
On a recent trip to my homeland, my wife and I decided to experience the warmth and mystical discovery of a one overnight adventure in this beautiful castle. Located in the Ardennes, a favorite place of mine, le Chateau d'Hassonville is the place to visit. Tucked away from "civilization" on a remote road, you drive on a path thru the wood only to discover this magnificent castle appearing after the end of a curvy road in all of his splendor. Greeting us and directing us to the court yard temporary parking was Alexander our host. After a warm welcome and helping us out with the luggage, we were shown our quarter on the second floor overlooking the medieval court yard. Our room was pristine, well decorated, cozy and our bathroom upgraded with a very large bath tub. We stay in " le Chapau" bedroom, as all of the other bedroom are also named. As requested, I moved our rental vehicle to the over night parking area and my wife and I decided to walk the ground as the sun would set in a couple hours from now. Several trails of different km are available and did explore around. We found some of the trees near the lake being hit by beavers and some already toppled down with utmost precision to form a dam. We were followed by the owner most friendly's dog from beginning to the end as a layer of comfort. As we ended our wooded adventure with the discovery of the outside sauna and hot tub, the smell of wood smoke was present and Alexander invited the both of us for a "Peket de Houyeu" around an outside bon fire. As the November temperature night dropped, it was time to take refuge in our room and get ready for the aperitif set for 7.00 pm. Greeted by friendly staff, our gastronomical experience was set to start in an fairy tale setting. From the appetizer, the 3 meal course, the 3 glasses of wine and the exquisite dessert, we discovered what a creation, passion et savoir faire is in the world of gastronome. We never had the chance to meet our chef and that was the low point of our visit as we wanted to meet the creator of an incredible journey of taste and presentations...... The next morning, we meet Martine, our host for breakfast. Set in a veranda, buffet style, complimentary local meat and cheese was available among great coffee , juices, fresh fruits and homemade baked goods. As the old saying said, nothing last for ever and soon it was time to say goodbye. Becky and I just wanted to thanks all of the peoples involved in our stay and who made it a magical moment. The Vanderheijden's…
The outside of the castle is magnificent. Beautiful garden, beautiful setting in a harvest of peace and tranquility. The inside is a bit old (of course you may say as it's a castle) dating I would guess of the 80s. Probably you need to renovate it in order to keep it up to date still maintaining the antique atmosphere. Just to give an example : we stayed in the main castle in a room overlooking the garden. The bathtub had no curtain, no glass, just a plain bathtub. You could easily recreate a walk in shower or closed cabin for the shower. The furniture was an undefined mixture of styles and not too well getting along. All in all calm and charming outside, nice drinks in the evening but a bit disappointed by the rooms.
The chateau is located in lovely ground with a lake. The room was large and quiet. I was with a group which was catered for by the hotel. The food (and various allergies within the group) was great. A lovely peaceful get away!
