Au Vieux Durbuy
Ranked #18 of 19 Hotels in Durbuy
Reviewed September 19, 2007

My partner and I had the best meal of our lives about ten years ago at Le Sanglier des Ardennes in Durbuy, a quaint, historic village in the Ardennes (Belgium). We finally returned to Durbuy last weekend and this time, we stayed at Au Vieux Durbuy, a sister hotel of Le Sanglier des Ardennes. Au Vieux Durbuy is a small, cosy and very charming auberge in the village centre (in fact, Durbuy has officially been a 'city' since medieval times and now claims to be the "Smallest City in the World" - I don't know if that's true but it certainly is small). We were given, probably, the largest room in the auberge: no. 6; the auberge has about ten rooms, I believe, most of which seemed quite small. The room has a warm, country feel and a beautiful and spacious bathroom. The only downside was that it overlooks the cobblestoned street below and it can get quite noisy in the daytime when the village is full of daytrippers.

We booked a gastronomic package for EUR 275 p.p. which included a two-night stay, breakfast, a three-course dinner on the first night, a five-course gastronomic dinner on the second night, and a champagne brunch the next morning. All the meals are served at Le Sanglier des Ardennes, a short stroll away. It's not cheap but it's definitely worth every penny! The food on the first evening was very good; the gastronomic dinner on the second night was exquisite and the service was impeccable; and the champagne brunch the next day was simply superb.

Durbuy is a lovely village in the hilly Ardennes region, with its own castle, and is surrounded by beautiful forests. It is definitely worth a visit, eg. for a romantic/relaxing weekend. I can definitely recommend Au Vieux Durbuy or its sister hotel Le Sanglier des Ardennes. If you do plan to book, opt for a package (ie. room + meals) as these offer great value for money.
