Short stay, OK.

by Christine D on 14 Oct 2016 (Business Traveller)

Stayed here on a Monday night on the way back from a business trip, the fact it was in a brewery and had parking and an open restaurant were key factors. The room was ok, with one of the largest beds I have ever seen, but the bathroom was in dire need of refurbishment. Breakfast was very good. The walk into town was a surprise, through a UNESCO world heritage site, lovely. With a bit of investment and refurbishment this hotel would be superb.

Disappointing outdated room

by JenniferBrighton on 09 Oct 2016 (Couple Traveller)

The first room we checked in to was small and the tv didn't work. It was on the ground floor and noisy as cars going over cobbles. We were checked into a different room on the first floor. Very motel like and shabby. Shower curtain too long and water ended up all over floor, which had obviously happened on many occasions before as the base of the bathroom door was rotten. Not good value at €99 a night. On the plus side breakfast not too bad and bed comfortable. Also beer in hotel bar very goo...

Beer is the best but the rooms are not.

Have stayed here many times over the years and whilst the beer cannot be faulted the accommodation has slipped down the ratings.

The restaurant prices have also risen dramatically since 2015 when i last stayed but the food is much the same. I know the place is on the tourist trail and they have no problem filling the restaurant with tour groups but th...

Outdated rooms

by Johan D on 07 Aug 2016 (Friends Traveller)

The rooms are not meeting modern standards and needing renovation. Especially the bathroom is too small and needs a complete update. There is a private parking (5€/day) but space is limited. Breakfast is served in the restaurant outside the hotel where you find a great selection and completes all your needs. However sometimes your nice breakfast can get disturbed by a noicy vacuum cleaner. Overall price for the accomodation is too high for the quality you get. For that reason, only 2 stars!

Good Value accommodation, superb beer, good food.

by David F on 14 Jun 2016 (Friends Traveller)

The accommodation is simple, but very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the attached brewery tap and restaurant were superb. All in all an excellent stay and very much recommended especially if you like your Belgian beer.
