We booked our stay at De Waterzooi based on two things - 1) its location across from the castle and 2) the positive reviews here on Tripadvisor. Thank you, fellow travelers and those who have taken the time to share your reviews on sites such as this - you didn't steer us wrong! My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary here in October, 2011 - and we are still in awe of how fortunate we were to have found this place!
Kay and Christian are lovely hosts who are happy to share their passion for restoration if you're inclined to ask. They've done a wonderful job updating de Waterzooi without losing any of its charm and character. You can still see the shape of the old church in the brick facade! The room furnishings are elegant and comfortable (I loved the controls that allowed us to play music in any room!) - but we couldn't take our eyes of the fabulous views! Castle Gravensteen - just steps away - on one side, and all 3 spires of the old town on the other (the clock tower and both cathedrals). The entire old-town of Ghent awaits your exploration, just outside the front doors. We can't endorse it enough. It made a special time for us that much more memorable.
