Kindness of the owner and the breakfast
We liked everything about our stay at the De Peperbus. We only spent one day there on our way to Germany and one day on our way back. We wished we had been able to stay longer. The hosts were delightful and very helpful. There is a lovely garden with orchid and a patio where visitors can sit and enjoy the garden. The breakfasts were delicious with wonderful homemade jams. The nearby town of Lokeren has some good restaurants and a beautiful church. No!
Great breakfast. Nice garden. Very nice people who own/run the b&B. Perfect if you like staying in the countryside (nature, gardens, cows, fruit trees, chicken, etc.). Nice beds (long: 2,10 metres). Close to Gent. We had a water closet down the hall (our own, for the other two rooms had their own in their own room) but the owner is working on the paper work (regulations for b&b) to change that. There's not much 'happening' in such a small place (E.G. restaurants, etc.).
Modern detached purpose built bed -breakfast very comfortable, well decorated accomodation-good breakfast wery pleasant/ helpful owners When booked requested ground floor or lift walking difficulties :sadley two flights of stairs to attic room took the shine of lovely lovely appointed room
The quality of the accommodation, the welcome and care of the staff and the breakfast - all excellent. Highly recommended. The hotel - more a B&B really - is a little remote. This could be good of course. It is well positioned for Ghent and Bruges, but you need to drive for your evening meal.
Wonderful hospitality, very clean room, nice atmosphere and free internet in this Bed & Breakfast. Great for pleasure and for business.
decot lovely, owners very friendly and helpfull, room on second floor and no lift, steps are spiral and narrow, not good for elderly or difficulty with walking
I visited whilst cycling through Belguim and had a lovely, albeit, brief stay. De Pererbus is located in a quiet rural suburb of Lokeren. I was made to feel very welcome and it felt more like being a guest in the owners house than a hotel. The room was large and very clean. Great place to use as a base for cycling. My only comment was it was situated 4km from the town centre.
Location in a quiet country-side place. Very nice and helpful family owners.
Excellent welcome and five-star treatment. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Room, breakfast & free parking Internet was the worst I have ever used anywhere & not just in the room but through out the hotel. We were there for a couple of days & speeds were 0.8Mbs down & 0.02Mbs up with most pings dropped or latency above 3000ms! Terrible internet,unr
Good location for the city centre, shops, museums and restaurants. Very comfortable and clean. Excellent breakfasts.
The room was clean and the quality of the furniture was excellent with hospitality.
Good Hospitality and Comfortable Stay. -Far away fromt he central station about > 10 minutes walking and difficulty in finding the place (Bed & Breakfast) not a hotel.
The room gave us lots of ideas and inspiration´s! Great place to start a holiday, defitinely gave the scapeaway.
the shower and bed are great!
Excellent service. Superb breakfasts. Friendly and helpful hostess.
Location, design, details, lovely breakfast, space, light, kindness of the owner and lovely products too. Suggestions for improvement: shower curtain, long mirror, better isolation of windows, extra bin in the breakfast area, music hi-fi, hangers for shower towels, couple of bathrobes.
Very crean room with completely novel design furniture. Better services with warm and kind hospitality.
Great location and a beautiful room.
Home @ Feek had a very nice room, friendly staff, great breakfast and was located ideally.
nothing but good location
close to station wear and tear
price too old and poorly maintained
Location is good, and convenient for transportation. There is no toilet and shower in room.
Great location, good value for money (cheap!)
close to main station we had billiard on the first floor
Located in city of heart,once again i would like to visit in same hotel i could not find any thing wrong, during my short visit.
Very convenient location only metres from the Central Station. Massive TV in the room with a good selection of channels. Bathroom was a little small and a little worn.
it is very near the central station
good overnight stop no
Close to the airport for an early morning flight. Two issues: i) the hotel advertises a restaurant that is not open on a Friday evening; ii) directions to the hotel on their own website are useless as there are major roadworks in the area. As the roadworks have clearly been there for some time, directions on their own website should relect this.
The staff were very helpful, the food was nice, the beds were comfy we can't really fault the hotel.
pleasant surprise. Desk clerk very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and tidy. Fantastic restaurant with chef. Would definitely stay here again. distance from airport. Was a 23.4 E taxi fare one way, but was cheapest hotel within 10 miles. We were just spending the night before catching flight out in the morning so didn't want to pay the 250E the Sheraton at the Brussels airport wanted for one night.
Quiet location Had some difficulty finding the motel
The food was fantastic and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.
distance to office, avoiding traffic, coveneient location rooms are like cellblocks, very basic and furniture was stained and dirty, no glasses, no tissues etc.
Location to my purpoase
location was good need a light blanket on the bed
Close to the airport. Free wi-fi internet. Not very easy to find, due to the works.
Traffic diversion for roadworks was unclear to non-Flemish visitor
Central location, cleanliness, huge rooms and bathrooms, well preserved old building, excellent breakfast This is not a hotel. It is a bed and breakfast. € 130 per night for a b&b in a provincial town is overpriced
Spacy bathroom, large bathtub, comfortable bed
Very nice place & people, very comfortable room and excellent atmosphere of the room.
This is a bed&breakfast but rooms are comparable with a 5* hotel, very very tastfull design, superb service. I travel a lot for work and rarely find a room which is such a gem. Lovely! I will stay here again. I honestly cannot find any downsides to this place.
The owners did a great job conserving the house in it's original style and combined it in a very tasteful way with modern elements. Very cosy place, spacious and very comfortable room with a huge bathroom. Good location in the city centre. If you have special dietary needs for breakfast even this is taken into account. So to summarize: a lovely place. A very minor thing is that it's a bit difficult to shower in the old bath tub.
The unique design and reuse of a beautiful cathedral.
Clean, tidy, well equipped room. The hotel was quiet at night allowing a good nights sleep in a sumptuous bed.
Excellent personal attention from the staff. Bed was super comfortable (it was my best night of sleep in 10 days on the road). Breakfast was very good and they make eggs to order. Rooms were a bit dark.
Rooms in the really old style, comfortable and beautifull. I would recommend this hotel to everybody. In the room there is a coffe machine - you have to pay 3 euros per coffee/tea. In 4 stars hotel....
the unique design and architecture of the room the hotel had very limited parking. We had to park away from the hotel which was inconvenient and expensive
Cozy atomosphere and comfortable bed linen.
It is a great hotel in a real church. They kept the original details, but added the comfort of a good hotel. The breakfast was very good with lots of variation. The bed was fine, Bathroom and toilet seperate. Bathrobes and free slippers. Walking distance to the center of town, shops, restaurants and cultural center. The airco was not able to keep the room cool, so on this hot day the room was about 28 degrees, too hot to sleep in. Everything else was just great!
Location of hotel near the historic center of Mechelen, Excellent breakfast.
brand new, very stylish and comfortable
We were treated to an upgrade which was a lovely surprise and much enjoyed Having to pay for tea and coffee, I understand paying for MiniBar drinks but for tea and coffee!
location and the small equiped kitchen the beds are moving on the floor and the matrass on the bed....!!!!
The room was clean and the Staff was friendly.Internet worked good but at slow rate.Kitchen was neat and clean.Overall worth staying as it is very near to Central Station and the zoo. Everything was good.Only the curtians were not that dark and anybody can see through it from opposite building.
We were "upgraded" to a "business apartement" because of overbooking. It was spacious but not the shiniest. Staff very was helpful. Few stops by tram to the centre or 15 min walk. 5 minutes from Antwerpen Central station. Although I had nothing against it, some might not like the neighbourhood.
the bathroom and the toilet was smelling bad
Location, 10 mins walking to train station. The cleanliness of the room/flat was under the standar.
Everything we need and wanted to have for a city apartment was there. we could making coffie, iron our clothes etc. parking garage was perfect. Food baskets for breakfast were too expansive in relation to what was in it.
This is an appartment. You feel like at home and there is a good parking for the car.
Spacey room, internet connection, quite neighborhood, very close to supermarket Room was bright all night due to translucent curtains and lack of window doors in the kitchen.
It worked well without hassle, I got my key on arrival Sunday evening and left it in the box Friday morning. That was all my interaction.
It was good value for money. Building was not very appealing.
See a band play
Location and speeed of check-in/out Price of breakfast, parking facilities
coffe and tea making facilities, large comfy bed, location pillows were too firm and small
convenient location; on-site parking poor lighting in bathroom; absence of magnifying make-up mirror
Decent size room, big comfortable bed, really comfortable armchair, clean, tidy, modern, convenient
Walking distance from the City. Parking on site excellent and then lift to hotel. Breakfast was not included in the price.
Good staff, nice relaxing atmosphere The road works, the messy on the street parking and the shower curtain leaks on the floor.
convenient location; on-site parking Lighting in the bathroom was inadequate; parking spaces are very tight and the up-ramp is steep; necessity to get out of the car to open garage door
clean spacious rooms, walking distance from the city center of mechelen too expensive (paid 140 for the double), reception area and elevator could be updated.
Not much Expensive;poor breakfast offer considering it was extra on the room rate.
very clean and efficient
Useful and comfortable room and easy parking. Rooms close to a main street and very loud over night.
Large comfortable modern style bedroom, calming atmosphere, excellent staff service at the restaurant, very helpful reception; very decent standard for a business overnight.
Very friendly, comfortable hotel, in good location for Antwerp & Ghent. Bar snacks reasonably priced. Restaurant meals expensive.
Friendly staff, very modern and clean hotel and an excellent restaurant!
Very convenient, comfortable, good parking and very pleasant.
good location. very pleasant room. staff friendly
Very clean and modern rooms with great shower. Very friendly staff.
Excellent room design
the warmth and welcome of the owner, relaxed comfortable and homely atmosphere, very central.
The location was fantastic, the surroundings charming and the host and hostess went out of their way to make our stay memorable.Nothing was too much trouble for them and we had a marvellous time in Antwerp.
The room is so romantic and quiet; you dont hear any noise of the city, while it is situated in the middle of antwerp /
A historic house, quiet location yet right in the centre of town, large room, large modernised bathroom with all facilities. Not everything was quite ready in the room when I arrived, but it was soon sorted out.
accomodation, friendlyness, close to shopping and historical centre of Antwerp NA
Location. Comfort. Historic building. No
good concept, very nice rooms, friendly staff
The facilities were brilliant and the staff (the manager, to be precise) was fantastic- extremely helpful, nothing was too difficult.
very nice service
The staff were very helpful and gave us really good information about the surrounding area. The concept of the pure b&b is very new and may take some visitors by surprise but in a good way.You have to go there to enjoy the whole experience. nothing
Nice clean modern hotel with very friendly and helpful proprietors. Good breakfast. In easy reach of Lier by car; not so easy if you don't have one. The hotel advertised itself as being within 5 minutes of the centre of Lier. This requires a car at high speed. There IS a bus service (550) but only once an hour (10-15 mins journey). There is also at the moment a disco adjacent which produces a little noise in rooms, but it didn;t worry me.
I received a greatly appreciated personal treatment. My aim was to get a break in between business appointments and that turned out to be the case. The sauna could not be used because they have to be booked in advance. The two spa's are private and can not be used by sevaral guests at the same time.
doesn't look exciting on the outside, but it is very good, rooms are great and all the staff make you feel very welcome, I had a lovely stay and would go to B&B Pure next time I am in Belgium.
The name of the hotel can not describe better the experience... Just Pure! The staff, the room the spa... real pleasure!
The room was very nice and clean, the bed was comfortable. Free wi-fi internet connection. Breakfast included in the hotel rate, though not very rich. Very poor room soundproofing: I could hear anybody doing anything in the whole hotel facility. Few international channels on TV. All saunas were already booked and not available when I stayed there. No open restaurant to have dinner around: I went approx. 5km away (in all directions) and the only open "restaurant" I found open was a Chinese take-away.
I was made feel at home at all times and thought that the staff were very well organised...even Geert!! Can't wait to get back and use the spa next time! If there is one downfall it is signage as you approach - but this is all.
Very nice place to stay in every detail. Additionally Lier is very charming town. My expectations regarding to breakfast were probably to high.... The traffic to the Brussels in the morning is dramatic.
Nice and spacious room. Internet access is free (as it should be) and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast is not exuberant but good. For the guests, the hotel has an arrangement with the (next door) fitness centre, so bring your sporting gear; it's worth a visit. Housekeeping might need to check the lights in the rooms every now and then. Also the doors are not isolating the noise from the hallway at all, so that generates some sleepless moments and an early wake up call.
Spacious clean room, flexible and friendly staff. Free parking space.
10 minute walk to centre of Lier. Very comfortable bed, nice bathroom, free parking and free internet. Breakfast plentiful and decent quality.
I always stay at this hotel when I'm in the neighbourhood. The breakfast has improved. I reccomend the hotel to everyone.
Large sized room with flat screen tv Hotel was avertised with a bar but we were ask to use a facility about 50mtrs away but were given a free drink voucher. The wireless internet was poor so the reception gave us netwrok cables on check in. Bed clothing was too thin and I was cold during the night - there was no extra blanket available.
Advantages: cosy, modern room with very comfortable bed. Coffe/tea making equipment. Free of charge internet and parking spaces. Helpful and very kind staff. Good localization - Lier center, near Antwerp. Ideal for business travel. Disadvantage: breakfast could include vegetables.
The rooms were very clean and modern. The breakfast was available when we went down at 11am on Sunday. It wasn't meant to be but they still let us eat which was much appreciated.
Friendly, helpful staff Not enough tea/coffee facilities in the room particularly milk.
room was very clean and free internet connection is very generous breakfast is a bit boring.
very close to the city center (walking distance)
Nice and local for city of mechelen. Parking within hotel carpark not available for minibus
Central location. On site parking. Rooms fair for price Difficultv location to drive to initially. Reception staff could be better.
Breakfast had a good selection of food and drinks. Some of the people on reception were not very friendly or keen to provide the sort of enthusiatic service I expect and recieve at other hotels I have stayed at in Mechelen.
The location of the hotel is excellent. Having read other reviews I had expected it to be noisy, however this was not our experience. Having stayed at other Holiday Inn Hotels we were slighty dissapointed with the breakfast as it was a cold buffet. However this was an express and was reflected in the price.
Definitely will use again if in the area. Friendly, helpful staff - Large clean room. Good parking. Amex payment was not yet available when at the hotel (they just opened). The staff was very accommodating and let me use booking.com for the payment.
The hotel has very modern decor The hotel could not supply one of the rooms I had booked through bookings.com. They simply did not have the room that we had booked.
Free mini bar included in price, which was very reasonable already, and the beer festival in the town was great. There was no hot food for breakfast after the weekend.
lack of air conditioning
Location No Airconditioning in Room
The bed was very comfortable. Mini-Bar included, and free internet.
Hotel staff was nice , efficient and breakfast was a delight. Rooms are very modern.
Very good business Hotel with every thing you need including coffee making facilities a luxury in Europe++++++ A little difficult to find even though it is in the town square
It was a very nice hotel. Maybe the best in design i have ever stayed at. A very good advantage is that it is located at the center of Geel near the pubs and that it offered a parking price included. Very good breakfast, and the man at the reception was very polite and very helpful. The only thing that dissapointed me, is that they did not clean the room the second day of our staying and that we found when we arrived, a bag with food, probably from the previous renters.
Excellent location, secure parking, very well designed rooms. Excellent breakfast, minibar & complimentary drinks was a nice touch as was the free WiFi facilities. Staff extremely friendly. A cool place to stay and I will be booking in future.
The atmosphere, the view from my room window, the helpful staff, the elegant bar/sitting area. nope!
The staff were absolutely superb. Nothing was too much. The hotel was superclean and friendly.
Good staff care, nice enviroment The breakfast is expensive and not really adeguate. The bathroom should be better: no descend bath mat, no tent in the tub, unacceptable in this level of hotel.
