What a fantastic place this is. Welcoming hosts and a beautiful building with lovely attention to detail, great breakfast even including eggs from their own chickens! This is a B&B not a hotel, so be ready to go to a local restaurant for dinner (hosts provided great recommendations.). Worth having your own car when staying here. Next time in Geel... More

It was by far the best accommodation I had so far. Jan's and Marc's restored ranch is simply a corner of paradise. Unique rooms, incredible breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff (Jan and Marc), attention to details. If you are looking for a romantic getaway or a quiet location for your business trip, this is the place to go to!... More

We were greeted warmly by the owner with welcoming drink and details info about the area. The B&B is very well planned and decorated in high finishing standard.

I stayed here as a stop off on a long journey and what a find! Jan and Marc have lovingly restored this farm to be the most beautiful and incredibly stylish place to stay. With such warm and welcoming hosts whose attention to detail is meticulous and wonderfully clean and comfortable rooms, I couldn't help but have a wonderful stay... More

When I remember beautiful Belgium, it will always begin with my time at the magical de Grote Kievit B & B. The combination of the lush landscape, our warm hosts, perfectly prepared breakfasts, and a scrupulously clean house blended together in my most pleasant memories of Belgium. Thank you, guys!

I had the pleasure to stay at Jan and Marc's with my sister, brother-in-law and niece last August on the occasion of my daughter's wedding celebration in Meerhout.

I had the pleasure to stay with Jan and Marc on a regular basis due to a work assignment in the area. After staying in the usual hotels I discovered De Grot Kevit and never looked back as I discovered perhaps one of the best B&B's I've ever stayed at. The location is peaceful, away from the hustle of a... More

Me, my boyfriend and a friend of ours have recently been at De Grote Kievit to join Groezrock festival in Meerhout. The b&b was 20 minutes far from there, surrounded by an outstanding garden and a super relaxing atmosphere.

Prepare for a "hello" outside when you arrive. It sets the scene: very warm and supportive hosts will do their utmost to make your stay a good and relaxing one. It is a wonderful, peaceful, clean B&B with the luxury that Relais and Chateaux can match. Excellent breakfast with local products and an egg as wished. Cosy, warm people, and... More

Marc and Jan have a wonderful property here. We have been very well received and they stayed always available to give us all sort of information. The house and the garden, really huge garden, are beautiful. Marc and Jan have designed all themselves and did an exceptional job. The house and the rooms are spotlessly clean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bed and Breakfast De Grote Kievit. The Grote Kievit is an early 19th-century farm with a rich history (King Leopold I, Baron Coppens, the First World War…). The professional renovation by the present owners, Marc van den Boorn and Jan Goossens, interior designer and landscaper, gave the buildings and the B&B a very modern feeling respecting the old features. The lovely landscaped garden is very inviting. There are chickens and sheep. You enjoy a copious breakfast with homemade jams, fresh eggs etc....The Grote Kievit is situated in a protected agricultural Kempen area with fields, farms, woods, the Prinsenpark, bogs and wonderful biking and walking routes... Peace, quietness, nature and relaxing...Welcome! ... more   less
