At the reception of the Hotel is still the original wheel on which the ropes were twisted.In 1968 Troopeird opened as a restaurant and quickly became one of the most famous and acclaimed eateries in Kortrijk.However, the guests of the hotel, which opened in 1978, require a different type of restoration and the kitchen tends to focus more on healthy and some simpler meals.The hotel was built according to the most modern standards of safety and comfort, but with respect for tradition.The atmosphere suggests that this building is an old farmhouse and suggests the Flemish character throughout the premises.
