    Had to pay cash (I didn't check booking) but assumed cards would be accepted. Limited quantity/selection for breakfast although adequate.

    Excellent cleanliness and comfort, with good facilities e.g. Microwave, kitchenette, fridge, comfy arm chairs, spacious, lots of towels etc., easy parking. Very friendly & helpful host.

    The surrounding area is amazing with the deer farm. The room was quiet, clean. Breakfast was good, less meat at it. You can't ask for more than this property. The area is green, quiet and lovely. I loved the two outdoors table right in the sunshine. We will definitely go again.

    We were greeted by our host Renate who was utterly charming. She had already emailed ahead to confirm that she had obtained some gluten free bread and crackers for my wife’s breakfast. She was so attentive and on hand if required. The accommodation was excellent and the setting so peaceful. We would not hesitate in booking there again.

    unfriendly host and too commercial for farm house

    Felt commercial and the owner was not very friendly and welcoming. Room was very dusty and there was no staff apart from her. Breakfast was fresh but a very average buffet with most items missing and not regularly topped up. The room is certainly not suitable for 2 adults and a baby as there is only a medium double bed in the room. Kitchen did not have a hob and considering all the doors in the house was closed we felt really unwelcome and did not want to ask about the shared kitchen. She agreed prior to our visit with a late check out but was trying to change it on our arrival. In total i think the other accommodations in that area will be a nicer experience.

    Nice view from the room. Very quiet and relaxing.

    This area is off the Enlish tourist route so most written word is in Flemish. We put english books, maps etc onto the bookshelves for other english visitors use. Menus in eateries are also without Enlish translations but waiters are frindly and helpful, dont be afraid to ask.

    The facilities in our room were excellent, could not fault it. Breakfast was continental and the coffee was plentiful and very good. Our hostess was friendly and spoke english.

    The drinks making facility in the room could have been better with coffee and tea with milk but there were plenty of drinks in the fridge.

    The owner was very friendly and the rooms were immaculately kept. Good TV with plenty of English language stations including the BBC. Perfectly located for exploring the First World War battlefields. Plenty of parking space. There is a village close by with a cash machine. Wonderfully quiet.

    Very nice location in the country (better have a GPS). Hotel is quite new: rooms are large and very well furnished (a small kitchen is available). Bathroom is high level. Great breakfast in a very "warm" room. Parking is good and free: a bit far away from the room area but you can drive closer to the room just for dropping your luggage down.

    • Family with young children

    I have requested hotel for a baby crib and also informed that we will be checking in late. Upon arrival, we found a baby crib to be packed in the box and we had to assemble it ourselves in the middle of the night with a sleeping baby in the arms. The room had no heat and had horrible smell due to plumbing issues in the bathroom, so we had to sleep with an open window. We had an awful experience and would not recommend staying at this hotel.
