    I couldn’t find any dislikes!

    The location is breathtaking! In the midst of a beautiful green scenery you can discover an amazing hotel which combines the old authentic feeling with a pure minimalistic design. On the top you can take a long stroll in the green park that surrounds the property.

    4 stars hotels should serve nice coffee specialities for breakfast. But Cosy bed and friendly staff

    no nice coffee specialities during breakfast (only filtered coffee), marmelade in little plastic packages. when you in belgium, you also expect waffles on a buffet or hot chocolate to be served. I was not impressed by the breakfast. i expected more in a 4 star hotel. and the eggs you fry yourself. the first time i see this in a hotel. maybe its calles "experience". I dont know. But there were plenty of options what to eat and and nice bread i have to say. the sauna is called panorama sauna. you see a white wall and some grass. this is not a view.

    The bed was super cosy. staff is very friendly.

    • Stayed 1 night

    No room for toiletries in bathroom as sink takes up all counter. Breakfast buffet was good but for $25 euro could have had a bit nicer options e.g. eggs were tasteless and a bit soggy / wet, salmon had brown spots, self service coffee machine was old and provided average coffee at best (of course you could order espresso based drinks from wait staff)..

    Wonderful location for relaxing, hiking, cycling, running, etc. Rooms were spacious and well designed (I stayed in main Manor, not newer buildings). Nice big bathtub with a tv to watch while you soak. Staff is top notch.

    As I was sharing with a friend and not my partner it is inconvenient that we were given double beds and not twin which I requested at booking. More importantly we were given a room with a bathroom with a window between it and the bedroom so little privacy...really unsuitable.

    Hotel and grounds and the spa and treatments.

    Water from the shower was leaking outside around the water with no drainer there. Something unacceptable for the price we pay. Room was nice but size is limited considering the price. View was nothing impressive from room 83. Staff from the reception did not impress us, we have been asked to fill in some papers with our data, some of which available to the hotel or that could be taken from id ...

    As I don't speak flemish I felt, once more, to be a bit out of place in this hotel that I know since years. Despite I ask them to write in english for announcement, mail etc, they never do and seem to reduce their communication/offer to the ones using flemish language. It is surprising but I will not come back anymore to avoid bothering people.

    Of course, perfectly clean hotel; very good all the way up to excellent... food. Some staff very nice, (others ignoring you 100%). Front desk staff not noting you don't speak flemish...

    The room was poorly lit. Atmospheric lighting is all very well, but it is difficult to see to read and you lose things more easily.the shelf in the shower was useless as the small bottles kept falling over. Could do with more shelf space in bathroom. People travel with a lot of cosmetics and toiletries these days.

    Absolutely everything. From the Location to the hotel grounds, to the staff, to the food. The breakfast was the best we have ever had. It was sheer quality.
