We booked a stay at the Auberge De Klass after we had read the very favourable reviews, and we were not disappointed.
From the moment we were welcomed with a glass of wine and a slice of home-made apple tart to the moment we checked out everything was perfect. The rooms are spacious, light and airy and spotlessly clean (as is the whole place). Everywhere is so tastefully decorated. In spite of being just a stone’s throw from the town centre, the hotel is situated on a quiet road and there was hardly any traffic noise. Guests can make use of the beautifully tended garden at the rear of the hotel – ideal for us smokers!
We were looked after by the proprietor’s 84 year old mother (the proprietor was on holiday) and boy did she look after us. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were fabulous – freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly made fruit salad, a choice of cold meats and cheeses, eggs boiled to one’s liking, a choice of bread and pastries and home-made jam all washed down with as much filter coffee as we could drink. In short, the best continental breakfasts we have ever had.
There are just three bedrooms: Angele is the largest and very spacious, Cecile (the room we stayed in) is the middle-sized one and Isabelle in the smallest, although one would hardly call it “small”. All rooms have impressive en-suite facilities, a kettle plus free tea / coffee, and free wi-fi (pronounced ‘whiffy’ in Belgium). Each room has its own beautiful décor.
It’s not cheap, but it is excellent value for money. We will definitely be going back again - many times!
Just one word of caution: the hotel does not take credit cards, so please make sure you have plenty of euros with you!
