We stayed one night in one of the suites. First impression of the owners were fantastic! Polite, smiling, helpful and VERY service minded. The suite we had was absolutely gorgeous! The room can't be described. It needs to be experienced. You can't find more comfortable and luxurious place to stay so close to the city center.

Cannot find one fault at this place. Location is perfect, owners are amazing, decor and space is perfect. If you come to Ghent, this is the place to stay. View of the castle from our lounge and an amazing terrace. Coolest B & B I've ever stayed at, possibly best hotel I've ever stayed at. Coolest part of the trip... More

My glowing report of the B&B Waterzooi adds little to what has already been said in previous reviews. We stayed in the 2nd floor Felix Suite at B&B Waterzooi in May 2016 for five nights, and I am already dreaming of going back. Ghent is an historic and charming, yet sophisticated, city with a youthful energy. It’s got everything from... More

Found the bed and breakfast set in a square with many bars and restaurants, opposite the castle. Sat outside and dined in the square which was particularly pleasant. The room - or should I say rooms and balcony - superb! Spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. Lounge had a backdrop of the castle and the square ... big smile. The... More

What a fantastic place to visit (Ghent) and an equally fantastic place to stay (De Waterzooi). We visited the jazz festival and spent the weekend relaxing in Ghent. Christian and Key took exceptionally good care of us, the bed and breakfast is amazing, beautifully designed, location is perfect beside the castle. Breakfast was also delicious, great selection and the best... More

This was the "splurge" of my vacation, and it was worth every penny. I stayed in the Felix suite, which was just as huge and luxurious and comfortable as the pictures suggest, and the view of the castle right outside the window is another enormous plus. While the lounge area is right over a busy and historic square, which is... More

I stayed here in June of 2012 with my parents. We stayed on the top floor and my parents slept in the loft and I had a very nice queen size bed. Kay made us a delicious breakfast every morning and her and Christian were so friendly. We arrived very late, but they were so kind to wait for us.... More

Just returned from a three night stay and what an amazing place. Hosts Christian and Kay were wonderful. Always available but not intrusive. Location, spot on! Fantastic views of the castle and room to die for (Felix suite). It was really a home from home and the decor! Kay, I will be mirroring your great interior design. Make sure you... More

Everything about this place is faultless. It is in a fantastic location, right in the center, next to all of the landmarks but also surrounded by great bars,restaurants and the beautiful canals. We stayed in the Farouche suite which is beautiful, spacious and elegant. There is a large terrace to have a glass of wine on with loungers- we barely... More

This has got to be the best b&b I have ever stayed in. Our hosts Kay and Christian were so welcoming, it was a pleasure to share their accommodation. The breakfast was superb. Meat, cheeses, pastries, bread, fruit, cereal and a special surprise!! I would certainly stay here again if I was visiting Ghent.
