“Thoroughly Enjoyed the Van Hercke B&B”
Reviewed 12 September 2006

My husband, 3 yr old son and myself stayed here in May of 2003. I like to go back and read reviews of places we've stayed (on tripadvisor) and I noticed nothing has been posted on this place in 3 years (written in Sept/06).

We were on a quick 5-day trip to Belgium and I stumbled across this place on Belgium's tourist board site. It appeared to be outside of Ghent and we knew nothing of the area. It was a perfect central location for our quick tour of Brussels, Ghent and Brugge. It was a perfect place for our "family" situation, having our 3yr old with us.

We rented the cottage and we were quite comfortable. It is very peaceful here. Our son loved running around the gardens and watching the ducks walk around (there is a pond across the street) and watching all the horse farms, as we drove around the area.

The breakfasts were very good and got us prepared for a good start each day. As with all good B&B's, The Van Hercke family was very helpful, providing maps, directions and suggestions. All the comments in their guest book were wonderful.

One note, you need to have a car. This B&B is not walking distance from any train station. It is located in the village of Laarne, just outside of Ghent. We had a rental car, that we would just drive to the train station to go into Brussels. We chose to drive to Brugge, not a big deal.
