“Lovely hotel in renovated brewery in the outskirts of Aalst”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

I was very impressed with this hotel . The rooms and bathrooms are very spacious. And with a great decor, making use if the original features of the original building but with modern twists. Breakfast selection was good too. It us a shame the restaurant is closed on Mondays.

I have stayed here several nights now and have been impressed with the service every time.
I would not be surprised to see this establishment gain a Michelin Star in the future its that good.
Monday is the Restaurant day off in the Biek as is required by law.Take a Taxi to nearby AAlst where you will be spoilt by choice.Do not let that stop you from visiting.

Nice enough room but the heating control did not work so it was quite cold. I needed to use the duvet from the spare bed to keep warm
Bathroom nice and spacious with a good shower.
Separate room for WC - a nice touch.
The rooms are in a separate building to the reception area. Not many lights around so it is quite dark at night
However, the restaurant does not open on a Monday and neither do any of the bars in the village. Your dining options are therefoe severely limited: pizza from a delivery service or the local Carrefour Extra.

The pleasant hotel & restaurant De Biek is located in a tastefully renovated 19th century brewery at the main square of Moorsel near Aalst in Flanders.

The village is quiet and unimpressive. At walking distance you find a large supermarket and a night shop (open till 02:00). Brussels is at a 29 km distance. We chose De Biek as at hrs.com it had a customer satisfaction rate of 9 on a scale of 10. We found that rating entirely correct.

The hotel annex gastronomic restaurant is comfortable and well maintained. A good place for a relaxing stay. You can discover the region by bicycle by taking one of the many bike routes.

We had a choice between an apartment at €125 and a standard room at € 100, both with breakfast included. The apartment has a living room with a well equipped small kitchen, a bedroom and a separate private bathroom. The standard room has a private bathroom with showers and separate toilet. We didn’t fancy cooking and choose the standard room.

The room was impeccably clean. Adequately furnished and decorated, the room has twin beds, a TV set, desk and wardrobe. No coffee & tea making facility in the room. Windows can be opened but have no mosquito screens. Breakfast is very good with eggs cooked to order. Free Wi-Fi Internet and free parking at the property.

Overall we had a nice time. We would recommend this countryside hotel to anyone who seeks great comfort in a quiet environment. The restaurant is excellent yet pricey. Lunch at the De Biek restaurant is high value for money.

We rented a studio at this hotel for three nights. The first night, they gave us one with a bedroom that only had two very small windows, so it got quite stuffy in there at night. Also, the shower and sink were right in the room. They must have just finished this studio, as the kitchen still had what seemed to be construction dust in the drawers and on almost all surfaces which surprised us, because the rest of the place was very clean. The living area had a bigger window, but you couldn't look outside, so it felt a bit claustrophobic in there. They were happy to switch us for our remaining stay though. They must have just finished renovating and they strive to create a stylish environment. Breakfast was okay, although the pickings were on the slim side for our standards, especially given the price of the room. There were some nice items, such as the croissants, but some were definitely lacking in quality, such as the milk and the cereals. Had the quality been better on the whole, we may have considered having dinner in their fine restaurant. A small piece of butter we had barely used appeared on our table the following day, which has never happened to us in any other place, and we do travel quite a bit. Although it seems that they are understaffed, all our request were promptly fulfilled. Service was friendly. Overall, this place is in a great and extremely quiet location if you are visiting Bruges, Antwerp and Ghent and don't want to stay in any of these cities. Had there been more attention to detail, such as removing spiders outside your door, replenishing coffee items in your room, etc., I would have given this hotel a perfect rating.

Room Tip: If renting a studio, try and get the one with the separate bathroom.

My sister and I were in Belgium for a chocolate workshop, this was my 4th time in the country. Last time I had stayed in an Ibis Hotel in Aalst. This time the school had booked us on the Ibis again but when we got there found out the internet was out and had no idea when it would be back - also they charge you loads for the internet. Anyway, speaking to a local we found out of this brand new hotel and restaurant on the nearby city of Moorsel - we paid the same value the Ibis was charging for a room and service 10 times better. Very spacious room with big bathroom, eletronic room temparature, great breakfast, perfect environment. If you are wondering around Belgium, here is an ideal place for you. Oh, broad band internet is free!!
