This is not a hotel but two rooms at a livery stables. This means you are treated like a friend of the family,sharing a wonderful dinner, and having an enjoyable time talking before retiring to your room. Breakfast was good with a wide variety on offer. Although we were assured that the website made it plain that this was not a hotel we were not aware of this and therefore weren't sure how to get into the place. A bigger sign would have been helpful when arriving at dusk. We have no problem with the fact that it wasn't a hotel, just that we were execting something different and thought perhaps the hotel part was at the back!
This is a Chambre d'hotes, not a hotel - but that in no way detracts from the delight of it. The room was spacious, comfortable, with an excellent shower and the furnishings are definately not from a "chain" - they're much more welcoming! Catherine, the owner, is lovely, She & her family make you feel very much at home. Breakfast is served in front of a roaring log fire in the country kitchen/dining room, home made jams & plentiful supplies of Earl Grey....what more can you ask for? Sitting chatting at the breakfast table with Catherine & her other guest was a delightful & charming start to the day. The sort of place that (especially if you travel at lot) you think has all but disappeared. Thankfully - it hasn't. Truly a delight to visit!! This is nothing specifically to do with the hotel, just something to note. Catherine is still waiting for her official Chambre d'hotes sign to be delivered from the relvant agency, so spotting the place can be difficult - especially if you're driving on your own. So - to help you find it: If you drive through Forville & the Pharmacie is on your immediate right - the hotel is the third house on your left (large brick house, set back slightly from the road, with a small horse menage at the front). If you drive through Forville & the Pharmacie is on your immediate left - you've just past the entrance to the hotel by less than 100 yards.
Very good food, friendly owner and interesting building No signage - hard to find without it
perfect natural surrounding the restaurant is closed on Monday, and we didn't know it in advande, couldn't find a restaurant if one has no car.
Location, interior and exterior decoration, scenery. The park needed maintenance, time between courses at the restaurant long, breakfast "refill" could be quicker and sharing a table with others in the morning was a little akward.
Quiet and peaceful. Luxurious without being formal and stiff. We will stay there again.
The hotel is in a beautiful location. The reception when we arrived was good. The rooms are well appointed and the grounds are extensive. Bin hadn't been emptied in the bathroom. Not enough hot water in the morning. Times given to us for breakfast were wrong. Absolutely no signage or information to or in the hotel (including menus/breakfast times etc). No information on the surroundings or tourist information available. Service was slow in the bar. Hotel would be impossible to find without a gps.
Fabulous location, beautiful building well furnished. Staff very friendly excellent facilities and grounds that you can explore. Would not recommend the restaurant which is very expensive and yet feels like a cafe. Over 114 euros for a 2 course meal for 2 with wine and yet you only get a paper serviette!! It would appear the chef tries to produce gourmet food beyond his/her abilities. Avoid the lamb which was tasteless served on undercooked beans.
The location and the castle. Nice lounge and bar. Nice facilities for kids. The bathroom was not clean and water was not hot for taking a bath. The service in the restaurant was poor and the breakfast is definitely low standard
Environment and hotel are nice and quiet. Staff is friendly. Food is rather expensive.
I liked the senary and the location very much. The people on reception were very friendly, however the people serving were not flexable at all. It was not possible to get anything to eat after 10 o'clock because we missed breakfast, and the only thing we could eat was lunch after 12 wich was a bbq. No sandwiches or what so ever. The waiters where i think a bit snobbish... see above...if you realy want to be an international hotel and not only a restaurant for the few from your neighborhood, you should instruct your servicestaff behind the bar and restaurant better. The only"normal"one was i think the manager there...
Nice location Reservation issues. Check in issues. Poor understanding of parents with children
Not very much at all. See below. We feel the hotel and staff missed many opportunities. From the start we were not made to feel at all welcome as we were unable to drive the car to the door. Luggage had to be dragged over stones and the wheels were then broken. The reception desk was hidden and no-one available to welcome us. There was a dead tree at the base of the stairs where a welcoming reception desk could have been. Why the dead tree was covered in silly bits of paper which no-one would read was a mystery!! The room was fine, clean and comfortable. Dinner was served cold ( scallops) and with much delay, even though there were very few guests actually dining. The barman preferred to take a phone call in the middle of taking our drinks order. We thought that the face to face customer was the most important one. We were wrong.
Clean, comfortable rooms. Excetionally helpful staff.
Problems with Sauna
Hotel comfortable. Spacious rooms. Location is quiet and by the river. Ideal for travel by car. Hotel 25 minutes away from city centre by bus. I was there on business so we were provided with transport every morning and evening. Last bus is at 9.22. If you miss this, You have to phone a taxi - walking from city to hotel is out of the question - too far away.
the indoor swimming pool not always very clean (especially the bed cover)
Close to the River with wonderful views yet close to town.Comfortable room. We would use again. We Thought that the Breakfast was overpriced for what was available.Next time we would opt out of the Breakfast.
The hotel has a nice feel, good for children, excelent location. Very price/ value. I booked the hotel because it has a swimming pool, we had 2 children with us. De pool water was simply ice cold. I complaint about it at the front desk and the manager but with no result , they said the water was always 28 ° I have a pool myself in LA but this temp. was way lower than 28. Everything else was nice, I go back to Dinant regulary but will be hasitating to believe the heathed pool story so I dont know if I will book this hotel.
It was comfortable, quiet and relaxing as a stopping iff point on the long journey from Italy. It was also excellent for an evening trip into the old town of Namur. As a disabled person, it was a long walk to the room.
The dinner we had for 11 persons was excellent
Dinner in the Hotel restaurant was well prepared and presented with an eye to detail and quality of ingredients. Very good.
Chateau itself Meal is good but rather expensive
The owner, cook, receptionist was very friendly, and always on hand to offer suggestions. Rate was good. Parking was a bit of a challenge; because although the hotel had parking available out back, it wasn't clear how to reach it. I parked in the public lot just over the street - which worked out fine.
Nice location No way near a 4 star hotel, too expensive, restaurant portions not enough to feed a small kid.
Enjoyed Breakfast, the ambience was better in the morning then evening. Didn't like the renovation, too much of the history had been wiped out..
Excellent location; excellent meals
Best thing about it is also the worst. Lovely and secluded but also hard to get to and as Namur is innundated with taxis getting back in the evening was difficult. Also good value as we got a deal for 60 Euros for the night, probably not worth it at over 100.
The location and the food The interior was not as traditional as we had imagined it would be
The Chateau is absolutely beautiful. The rooms were spaceous, clean and comfortable. Very nice bathrooms and decor in the room.
Very nice old building which surprises with very modern interior and rooms. Rooms are large and very nicely fitted. Can't beat this hotel for value for money. Restaurant is superb. We had a great set dinner for only 30~40 Euros and quality was top! Nothing negative to report
The breakfast was nice and it's a nice touch to have free water in the fridge in the room. The view over the river must be good if you're on the right side, which I wasn't. I didn't get the good view. The internet was slow and should be free.
Good location, good breakfast, parking easy enough, but compared to previous visits to Namur I thought the town was very dirty: too much litter, too many rats roaming freely by the Sambre, etc. The town council has some work to do to bring this historic town up to good condition. Not the hotels fault I know but perhaps some pressure is needed. The hotel stank of cigarette smoke. The charge of €9.90 for wifi is ridiculous: in this day and age that is similar to charging extra for the toilet rolls. Yes, I would recommend this hotel on grounds of location, but it has a way to go in terms of customer services.
clean quiet room reception desk and breakfast room and hotel rooms and that s all there is, very nice restruant in the casino, but if you had children you would have to find somewhere to eat to out. Ideal for an over night stay or business trips. Found parking difficult but can use casino car park for 5 euros.
I wouldn't suggest this hotel unless you like Casino games Smoke is permitted in shared rooms, The reception is empty because of the Casino
The breakfast buffet is ... uninspired. You can survive, but the choices of bread, coffee, croissants, etc., are not up to Belgien quality standards.
Spacious, comfortable room, great view
Spacious room - plenty of space for suitcases. Large, comfortable bed. Excellent bathroom facilities.
Central Location Lengthy procedure to gain access to the Casino
The building. The rooms were dated and the bathroom needed renovations. The complimentary breakfast was appaling, the coffee machine was not working the fruit juice was watered down. The rooms smelt of smoke even though we requested an non smiking room. The staff did not really speak english. The parking was operated but a random door man that insisted on cash, but free parking is available on the street.
The Location is great despite the main road. I didn't appreciate not being allowed into the Hotel Restaurant without a passport (It's in the Casino) so I ate elsewhere.
Location There is no Hot Spot in a room
simple, but clean and nice I got room for smokers, possibly, so it was not smell good
Breakfast for Euro 10 is rather expemsive.
excellent rate and convenient location
Friendly staff,, clean rooms, value for money and central location
Clean and spacious, nice view of the citadel. The first room I was assigned was a smoking room, but I was quickly moved to a non-smoking room when I presented the problem to the front desk staff. No t happy that I had to pay for the internet which every other hotel I've stayed in in Europe has offered it free (5 in the last month).
Helpful, pleasant staff. Very good location.
Air condition a little unefficient
Conviniently located. Got a big, comfortable room. A bit of inconvinience with the soap dispenser. The paid internet service stopped working the day i was to check-out! Good thing was the hotel guy did not charge me. Breakfast too expensive.
easy to find using ibis map. Good secure parking. Just a short walk fromtown centre. breakfast very expensive so didn't bother.
Great breakfast - though price not included with room. We stayed with baby and accidentally forgot a soft toy. They kindly hand delivered it to Brussels! Very nice staff indeed.
Lovely villa in a beautiful riverfront location on the Meusse. We had a grand view room with a large balcony overlooking the river. We had brought wine and enjoyed it on the balcony. The villa has that "going back in time" feeling. The area is spectacular, beautiful scenery and lovely old towns and villages. The nearby town of Namur definitely worth visiting. We were warmly greeted and as we arrived very hungry, the owner immediately phoned and made a reservation for us at a little gourmet restaurant that we walked to, just a couple of blocks down the road. We did pay separately for the quite extensive breakfast the next morning, but we enjoyed it very much. It is served in a beautiful sunroom overlooking the garden to the river. The shower, (which is a handshower) was not working, but we just used the big bathtub instead, which was perfectly fine.
The management were very good. Unobtrusive and helpful.The setting and style of the hotel is very good, reminicisient of a much more graceful age
nice rooms and friendly staff, nice breakfast
Although we only stayed one night we found it to be absolutely delightful.
it is situated right opposite a beautifull golf course the old fashioned bathroom and a very dated tv-screen
We had breakfast in the room and it was excellent and fantastic value for money. The room was large and luxurious. The host was welcoming and very friendly. Very soft-spoken and unimposing. The switch between shower and bath taps was very stiff.
Breakfast was excellent. Location good but as it has no restaurant you need to drive to eat. The Italian restaurant recommended by the hotel was good but expensive with extremely slow service. The bedroom we stayed in could do with modernisation.
Very beautiful building and garden. Nice big rooms and very comfort beds. Nice bathroom. The breakfast is outstanding! Nothing.
Good location, reasonably utilated and sized room. Room smelled (somebody had been sick there, apparently, and the cleaning staff had done a poor job cleaning afterward). The hotel was full so I could not be moved, and there was no cleaning staff left to do additional cleaning. I had to invent ways to keep my clothes non-smelly till morning... Very poor English at the reception, as well.
nothing Very Old, no air conditionning, not really a 3 star hotel, less comfort than expected, decoration is hugly, if you plan to relax after a long journey, go elseware ...
The location of the hotel in the city centre, the friendliness of the staff, the quality of the accommodation and a great continental breakfast all make this a lovely hotel to stay in. I'll certainly go again!
Friendly staff. Spacious room. Good access to station and shops. Soft bed
Good location - near the station and the town centre and tourist attractions. Buffet breakfast better than expected. The hotel still allows smoking and the seats and ashtrays in the corridors mean that you have to walk through a very smoky atmosphere to get to the lift and also smoke permeates into all the rooms on the floor.
Excellent location. In summer it would be unbearably hot.
Location close to the station. The blanket was quite thin, and there wasn't a second one in the room.
The room was quiet, and the hotel very conveniently situated.
Very kind and helpful staff. Nice location. good breakfast. Bathroom as well as the room could have been cleaner. We found some rubbish under the bed as well as hair in the bath. We had to leave the water run for 10 minutes before it turned hot...
Very helpful staff. Large, comfortable room and bathroom. Location close to railway station, so I easily commuted to Brussels for business meetings. Close to city centre and shops. Breakfast room cosy.
hotel closes at 23.00 no nightshift, bar was closed because of meeting.
Hotel comfortable, good location Having to walk outside to get to bar / dining room
Friendly reception, good restaurant. Less than perfect shower. Sadly the chef was ill for some of my stay.
bathroom clean, otherwise nothing The hotel was very shabby, the staff were rude, ignoring us. The chef was ill, so no dinner, no help to find alternative. The coffee machine did not work at breakfast and they charged the bar bill to the room, after paying on the night. We have a Best Great western near to us (Centurian, Midsomer Norton, Bath) and we expexted similar.
The internet is not exactly free, to use it you need to already have an account with Swisscom.
Comfortable and quiet despite being on a regularly used road
Comfortable room for overnight stay.
nothig We booked the hotel specialy for grand prize of Namur (motocross world champion ship) , we are drivers. We could' t came frome the hotel in the morning (6 a.m) beacuse the door was close. we asked to open door we were refused, because this hotel is not night hotel. We have a good chance to loose the champinship start. We did not recieve any breakfast, because of we leave hotel early.
The lady owner is very kind and helpful. We had 3 dinners at the Cicero restaurant. We also had 7 breakfasts. Always very good. However, except for snails and beers, we could not get any local food (nearly everything is "imported" from the Flemish part of Belgium, from butter, to low-fat yogurt).
Closing time 23.00 is a little bit early
