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.

My husband and friend were visiting Ghent for a long weekend and stayed at De Waterzooi. It was, by far, the best B&B experience we've had in Europe. The owners were kind, attentive (without being overbearing), helpful, and knowledgeable. The room was clean, beautifully decorated, and incredibly comfortable. Our room had 2 bedrooms, one with a memory foam mattress. The... More

My spouse and I stayed for 4 nights Oct. 7-10, 2015. The inn could not have been nicer and the owners were kind, sincere, helpful and personable. I highly recommend staying here when you are in Ghent. It is in a great location, it is spotless clean, breakfast for an additional 15 Euro is well worth it.

Just returned from a lovely few days in Ghent. What a lovely relaxing place it is and to stay at De Waterzooi was the icing on the cake. The owners were charming, so helpful and friendly. You have to admire how they have renovated the old church into what must be the number one place to stay in Ghent. I... More
