“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

We spent three nights at this cozy hotel while going to F1 at SPA. It is a cozy place with only 6 room and a very personal service. The rooms where really good and the service and food excelled.
Johan (the inkeeper) was nice enough to make early breakfast for us, so we could go early and even took orders for sandwiches to bring on the day trip.
All in all a pleasant experience and if I am ever in the area again I'll stay here.

Room Tip: Write before going to ensure a double bed room or two single bed room

We stayed here for the Friday and the Saturday night over the Grand prix weekend, the hotel is based around 40 miles away from the famous Spa-Franchorchamps circuit with a fantastic drive there witnessing beautiful scenery and great driving roads (shame we had a Peugeot 208 diesel hire car). The hotels location is in the pretty village of Chardeneux, where all the houses are grey slate in design.
Jan Greeted us immediately upon our arrival and showed us to our spacious room, £75 a night which includes breakfast buffet is unbelievable price,we opted to dine in the small restaurant both nights and Jan as a professional chef delivered tasty dishes...
the whole place was perfect and i shall be returning next year

Fabulous. It exceeded my expectations. The room was nicely equipped with all the modern facilities and luxury bath amenities. The dining terrace overlooks the valley. The gracious owner showed great qualities. He made his best for us to feel comfortable. The service is professional but discrete leaving space for privacy. Chardenneux is a tiny village with a few old stoned houses and farms in the middle of the Belgian countryside. It was magic. Not to forget the welcoming blanc bleu belge calfes at the entrance of the village. Durbuy, the cobbled town is only at 11 kms. Mountainbikes can be rented at the property. The last but not the least. The cuisine of Mr. Vandersmissen is excellent. Monsieur, je vous tire mon chapeau! If you you want to indulge yourself of a quiet weekend break in a quiet and romantic setting this is the place. I strongly recommend it.

I and my partner recently stayed in this charming inn. We appreciated friendly welcome and calm setting. The rooms were tastefully and practically furnished. We only had breakfast which was served between 9 - 10 am. The choice was sufficient and consisted of fresh produce but we would have liked it to be served till later. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience which we would repeat.

The comfortable bedrooms are immaculate and tastefully (but simply) furnished. The host is charming and welcoming. His food is really very good. This is a delighful place in tranquil surroundings and I highly recommend. About 3-4 hours from Calais so easy enough even for a short weekend break from London.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2009

Modern rooms with flat screen tv, skype phone, ipod station and internet access. Pretty village but you'll need sat nav to find it. We were warmly greeted by the owner/chef and it was like having our own private hotel [ there was only one other couple staying]. We ate in and had a lovely meal, but, if you have any dislikes please tell them as we didn't have a choice the night we stayed. They usually only open during the week during school holidays but we managed to get a mid week booking by mistake! The owner was very helpful and provide us with a map of a suggested walk which is well worth doing.
Only slight niggle is that I was charged the same price as a single as my friends [a couple]. I had a room off theirs with a shower room and they had full [beautiful] bathroom and ,ofcourse, I only ate one breakfast! Good base for walking or cycling holidays.
