Very clean hotel with an old charm to it. The owners are really nice and they welcome you in a very personal way. Breakfast is great! It's not in the city center, but not too far away. Big rooms, private parking and a sauna onsite.

We really enjoyed our visit. The location was convenient with easy access (2min) to trams and buses to take us to the main sites. Ghent is a very nice place to visit and Hancelot provides an opportunity to see what it was like 100 years ago with todays amenities.

Hotel is in a nice location. The owners are very friendly and always asking if they could do more to help. The room is spacious and the breakfast is good. The hotel is in a protected building, so there is no elevator. Might be a problem if you end up on the third floor!

Original features and furniture. Desk not manned in the evening, but easily worked-around, slightly off the beaten-track. Good breakfast. Very helpful staff, they sent some clothing back to the UK which we had accidentally left there. I would go back to this hotel if I were returning to Ghent.

I stayed for one night, on a business trip, and enjoyed this quaint little hotel. The hotel is in an old building, probably 200 years old. The rooms are very spacious (a bit too much, even), with wooden floors and old (yet well kept) furniture. The bathroom, though, was new, clean and very well kept. The two small things that... More

We booked a Deluxe Double Room in this very charming hotel for Valentine's Day. It is very central, being close to a tram stop (4 from the historic center of Ghent). Our reception by Jamila was very friendly and the B&B was every bit as good as described. Our room was beautiful and we were offered an upgrade for our... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on the evening of Thursday 11 December. We found the hotel quite easily (a tram journey of a few minutes from the historic centre of Ghent). The hotel is set within a large renovated house. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and checking in was simple and straightforward. It is not... More
