“Nice concept but not very well thought through”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

We stayed for a weekend in this B&B in Durbuy after seeing it on Belgian television.
The expectancies were high but maybe we set our expectations too high.
The concept is very cool and with children I would still advise it, but we went for a romantic weekend and it just wasn't good enough.
First set back was that when we arrived it had been snowing and at first it took us three tries to access the parking, I would suggest that when it snows they clear the pathway because when we left, it took us an hour and help from other guests to leave the parking.
The welcome is standard but from a real B&B you would expect something warmer. Room decoration is nice, we had "le desespoir du moine" as room, but the room was very small. At first this seems cozy but after a while you get a claustrophobic feeling, especially because the room was very dark.
We also had diner in the restaurant "La Gargouille" from the same owner. The food was good, but rather expensive for what it was. So were the rooms.
Like said earlier, maybe nice with young children, but for grown-ups you feel a little bit trapped.
