At first I was impressed by the look of the hotel from the outside. It is not at all like a typical hotel, it has a picturesque garden, where one may take a walk. The vegetation was natural, with tall old trees, lawns and beautiful autumn leaves...
We did not have to pay for parking and it was very conviniently right in front of the entrance. The owner was very nice and welcomed us himself and gave us an insight into the history of the house and the plans for the future.
The house was very tidy. Everything inside looked antique, furniture, keys, paintings. The room had a big bed, a wardrobe, elegant decoration, an own bathroom, shower and a very romantic view form the window. We enjoyed a fantastic 5 course dinner cooked by the owner's wife in a cosy kitchen, outside of the house (it was paid separately, but it was inexpensive and very much worth it). In the morning we had home made croisants (included in the room price:)
The hotel is in the countryside, but very close to Gent, one can get to the city center in 20 minutes by tram.
The owners, the atmosphere of the house and the garden made that stay unforgetable.
I would highly recommend it to people who are not looking for a typical chain hotel, but want to feel at home and appreciate special atmosphere, fresh air, good food and tranquility.
