We stayed 3 nights at The Big Sleep in mid October. We were the only guests at the time. We had the big room at the back with TV and small fridge. Shower cubicle in corner with basin next to it. Room was quiet and clean except for a few cobwebs on the ceiling. Although up two flights of stairs we did not find this a problem. Having the toilets across the landing was OK as we had them to ourselves.
The parking was very convenient just across a canal and only 3 euros a day.
Tasty breakfasts of cereals, bread, rolls, cheese, ham and preserves were already laid out when we came down. Flasks of coffee and boiled water for tea were on the table.
We only saw Michaela Delbaere three times during our stay as she was busy with a job and her family. Our room was not made up, beds made or towels changed once during our three night stay. We queried this and she told us the custom in Belgium B&B's is to make up the rooms every 3 days but she usually does it every 2. We checked out this 3 days' room service at the local Tourist Info and they were not aware of it. However, Michaela apologised for not tending to the room on the second day owing to other commitments and gave us a bottle of wine.
The large room was quite cold as the two radiators only came on at the system's preset times. Furniture was very basic. Two well used chairs in the room. No mats just polished floorboards.
