“stay at your peril”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2012

the location is absolutely thriving. you must ask yourself why there are so few reviews and why they are old - i'll leave that one with you....

this hotel, once upon a time may have offered a quality experience, as reflected in their advertising. we have found them to be intentionally misleading from the moment we booked to the day we got our money back. we arrived, and cancelled immediately. they deducted hundreds off our credit card, i have disputed and it has taken alot of time and energy to get my money back having finally to resort to visa reversing the charges.

stay at your peril - buyer beware - sadly the experience does not live up to the hype. it's on a dual carriage way road, on the outskirts of town, no evidence of family running this hotel, our bedroom looked like someone had died in it, and reception rooms were ghastly.

knokke-heist is a great location, affluent whilst being affordable, i sincerely reccommend the town but find another hotel, there are lots to choose from.

The low score of this hotel is probably undeserved: most of the reports are very old (perhaps because people who write reports have been avoiding it.)

Anyway, I happened to need a hotel in the area while passing through, and since this is visible from the road, I took a room.

The room was quite large, clean and comfortable, and there was free parking (although this was a very complicated affair!)

The road noise can be a problem with the windows open. It is 5 minutes walk from the beach with the restaurants etc.

People do smoke in the bar at night, though they do leave the doors open.

Overall, it's ok. Don't go out of your way to avoid it!

The ad says ''Behind the front of this elegant white villa there are more beautiful things: fourteen rooms, very fashionably decorated''

This is what a student in Marketing would call a milk Brand - do the utmost least possible and charge for it. The hotel's introdution may have been apropriate 20 years ago, but it is now 2010 and you cannot get away with such crappy goods and service.

This was the last venue of our tour - and the worst - its not like we were paying hostel prices either - we do have some standards... but unfortunately, the hotel lived up to none of them.

I expect that Paul used to have a nice hotel.
