“Modern, stylish, comfortable, friendly B&B”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

When we booked this B&B, we thought it was close to Antwerpen, but ended up a long way out. Its located in a rural area outside Dendermonde, which lies sort of centrally to Antwerpen, Brussels, and Gent.

From the outside it didn't look anything special. But inside the design is very modern & stylish. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Downstairs there was a lovely sitting area and inside + outside breakfast eating room. There is a fridge with a great selection of Belgian beers at great prices and all you do is tick the sheet to show what you've used.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Only a 5 minute drive to the centre of Dendermonde itself, which has a lovely square with nice old buildings where we had a fantastic meal at the Den Ooievaar restaurant. Also recommend a visit to the St Alexius Begijnhof, which is off the Brusselse Straat.

Reviewed 23 July 2012

I have stayed here twice now - both for 3 nights on business in Zele. The whole place is very relaxing with plenty of space and privacy in stylish, quiet surroundings. The reception area has a wonderful fridge full of Belgian beers (very competitively priced) complete with matching glasses for each one, free tea and coffee making facilities, a comfy sofa area with large cable TV and computer access with free wi-fi. There is plenty of local tourist information and maps.
The breakfast tables lead out to a spacious patio with Koi Carp pond and an attractive little vineyard. The breakfast itself is, in my opinion, perfect. A small glass of exotic fruit salad, one of fruit yoghurt and a boiled egg, along with a mini pastry treat. There is also plenty of bread, ham and cheese along with other spreads and cereals to fill up on - all fresh and tasty.
Bedrooms 1,4 and 5 are the best with large windows and patio areas. I have not seen the other rooms. The decor is modern and stylish. The bathroom is beautiful with a wonderful deep bath, walk in shower and lovely Spa collection toiletries. There were house slippers and bath robes too and big soft towels. The Queen sized bed was soft but firm enough not to leave me with back ache. I slept very well. Plenty of lighting options - a big black out curtain and double glazed patio doors (essential if you don't want to be woken by the dawn chorus of cockerels). The air-con worked ok but the room was still a little warm so I slept with window open - thankfully there was a mosquito screen. There was also an i-Pod radio dock and the selection of cable TV channels was large enough for casual evening viewing in any language.
I could not find fault with the place even if I wanted to. It is immaculately clean and very well run by Inga who was friendly but unimposing. If you are in the area for business or pleasure, and have your own transportation, I would recommend this place highly.

Room Tip: 4&5 have private patios overlooking the garden and are spacious. 1 is similar but with sofa area...
