The rooms are not meeting modern standards and needing renovation. Especially the bathroom is too small and needs a complete update. There is a private parking (5€/day) but space is limited. Breakfast is served in the restaurant outside the hotel where you find a great selection and completes all your needs. However sometimes your nice breakfast can get disturbed by... More

The accommodation is simple, but very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the attached brewery tap and restaurant were superb. All in all an excellent stay and very much recommended especially if you like your Belgian beer.

Hotel is basic but clean and functional and the location is ideal. The onsite brewery and bar/restaurant are a great reason to stay here. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast included bacon and eggs which made a nice change from the usual continental fayre. Would definitely stay here again. There are ground floor rooms which might appeal to... More

The room was clean, a bit basic, good for a short stay. The hotel is easy reachable from the motorway Antwerp-Brussels. You can still hear the road through closed windows. The best thing is the brewery and it's restaurant. They brew traditional Belgian styles ales, and you can try 5 sorts for 9 euro. Also, the bottle from Het Anker... More

The restaurant serves excellent food. Some dishes are prepared with their beers. If you want to eat at the restaurant you should make a reservation because... More

We booked the Horen, zien, proeven and Mechelen arrangement. This felt a bit as a rip off. We had to ask for everything and for example the beers that were served with dinner, were only 0,15 liter. Better to book just the room and pay separately for food etc We reserved a parking space in advance, but when we arrived... More
