- although we had the least expensive room in the house, it was still visually very striking, with a high level of design (particularly the lighting).
- it is very close to the core of Ghent's centre
- parking is a distinct advantage given this very central location (even if the garage is a few hundred metres from the front door)
- an impressive and high quality restoration of an old house
reasons for not giving 5 stars:
- it's a rather 'detached' operation compared to other (and superficially similar) boutique B&B's we stayed at on this trip. In particular there is no one around to let you in. You have to call a phone number on the front door. Dieter turned up within minutes and is helpful, but this is not an ideal way to start, especially when in a car.
- house rules: you have to take your shoes off before going up to your room. It's a B&B not a Hindu temple!
- room had cups/kettle/milk but no tea and coffee provided, plus one of the bedside lightbulbs was dead.
Breakfast was very nice and served in an impressive dining room, but somehow a little less homely than some places.
PPP is indisputably stylish, it's undoubtedly well located, but it's just lacking some warmth (in the emotional not temperature sense).
