The owners have restored the building with great love these past ten yeas. It is not a 5-star hotel with spa, sauna, swimmingpool, a restaurant and a bar, 24-hours room-service, etc. etc..
For me it was much better than that! The owners have not "over-restored" the chateau, but just right. The antiques in the room are just superb and are perfectly selected for the right spot. It would not be possible for a normal hotel to decorate the rooms so beauifully. And the price is just ridiculously cheap, it will not stay so for long.
Our Suite was very large (almost 70 m2), and overlooking the beautifull lakes and hills surroundig the chateau. Breakfast was served in the room and you can imagine that we did not want to go out, with such a beautifull ambiance. But there is so much to do in the surrounding area. The location is perfect for he Ardennes, Spa, Verviers, Durbuy are all very near by car. Liege is a gem and with its new state of the art train-station, worth a visit of at least onde day. Maastricht is a only 50 km away and is also a beautifull city, don't miss it!
The direct surroundings are perfect for walking. Biking, if you are trained and in the winter, skiing. So if you like spacious, voluptuous, rooms, decorated with style, beuatifull views and a excellent breakfast, this is the place for you. In fact it is one of the best places in the Ardennes, and we have been visiting the Ardennes for at least 15 years!
Finally just a few things:
the batroom of our room was in the hallway, because of the enormous rooms, this was quite a distance;
the house is very quiet and you have all the privacy, maybe some people like to have more contact with other guests.
driving to the chateau can be difficult if there is lots of snow.
For us it all the above were no problem at all, just trying to give a good as possible idea. So do not hesitate, book it now, because in the season there will be no vacancies!
