The management is Franco-Belgian, The kitchen, the beating heart of our operation, is open to all. You can assist the Belgian chef, watch him work his magic, or just see how nice the place is.

    Superb

    05 May 2018
    We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel, staff were friendly and very accommodating when our booking was mixed up by Hostelworld. Film night and pizza was great and would highly recommend. The window was broken in our room so it was a bit cold but apart from that I would definitely recommend the hotel to others.
