Good hotel,good restaurant,parking is okay the weather wasn't so good; no possibility to take a shower ( only a bath); payment for spa and not accessible for kids beyond 12 years
Friendliness of staff
The staff were extremely helpful. The rooms were light and bright and the location of the hotel was right in the middle of the town but at the same time was quiet.
Clean, comfortable conveniently located. Professional staff all necessary facilities. Room too hot (or too noisy if air-con used)
The food, facility, and staff were outstanding: breakfast through dinner! N/A Totally satisfied!
The restaurant was great, portions enormous! Location was perfect, great place to stop on a trip to Germany.
The town is right outside the door. Some staff were good at volunteering information which we wouldn't have thought to ask. Excellent signposting on all approaches. The town is right outside the door, the cobbles make for noisy awakenings... use the bathroom windows for ventilation instead. The questionnaire provided did not have an English version (we were unable to give positive feedback directly to the hotel).
Enjoyed the hotel because of it's setting and its hystoric background. Wish the room had a shower, not just a bath
The staff were very friendly, everything was in condition and clean. The heater did not seem to work very well especially in the bathroom.
Environment and hotel are nice and quiet. Staff is friendly. Food is rather expensive.
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.
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.
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.
Nice location Reservation issues. Check in issues. Poor understanding of parents with children
Quiet and peaceful. Luxurious without being formal and stiff. We will stay there again.
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.
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.
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...
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
the friendlyness and helpful attidue of all personel i did not stay long enough to comment here.
The countryside around Durbuy was beautiful with lots of walks. The Town is pretty and has lots of restaurants The restaurant staff did not reflect the welcoming attitude of the rest of the staff
Very clean and comfortable rooms. Nice atmosphere and good location. Our room had a nice view. Very good value for money. Friendly staff. They provide us with a bed for our 4 years old son for free. Free parking. We would stay there again. ...just the weather :-)
Dinner and breakfast was very good, good accomodation (news paper, seats ...)
Nice room, friendly staff & beautiful surroundings Not easy to shower in bath
very accommodating staff, well maintained facilities, great restaurant, felt like a large country cottage. would reccommend to anyone for a day or a week. would like to see shower curtains or divider added to the bath tub
bath-room; location with view to the castle
I liked the style of the hotel and the room. The location of the hotel is really convenient. The view from the window of the room (facing backyard) was not very plesant but anyway the curtens were nice.
Good swimming pool Upgraded to overpriced luxury room as room booked through site was so "unwelcoming". TV did not work, water failed at one point, found bed uncomfortable. Not value for money in any respect
room too small, no window, rather dark, very basic for 4*rating, bath i/o shiower, servicedesk often not manned, weird atmosphere
nice hotel with unusual setting stayed in one of the chalets near the japanese gardens and the walls between us and the adjoining chalet were a bit thin, hence: snoring noises at night
The Shower in our room filled the floor like a swimming pool. It was one of those ones that you should sit in a bath and spray yourself with water. But the nozzle was spraying water everywhere and the shower had 2 speeds - nothing and tsunami. But this was the only bad point in our experience there.
Its a modern and comfortable hotel just 3 km from Durbuy. Great if you have kids, as there is a nice indoors swimming pool, a tennis court, and playground. Breakfast for just 10 euros is good and you can ask for eggs and bacon.
Very quiet area, next to Durbuy, big parking space, nice garden, sauna and fitness room very good, hotel staff friendly and helpful Access to swimming pool very dangerous(I felt and hurt myself pretty bad, I was not the only one who felt) after 10:00pm doors closed but no lights outside to access hotel, need flashlight! In the room out of 3 lights 2 not working. Plugs damaged, very dangerous. In general too expensive for value, is classified as 4 star, should be 2-3 star
Nice and quite hotel, friendly staff, great value for money.
the dinners and leasure facilities in the hotel
very convenient parking facility - right next to the door very slow service in the restaurant - the dinner of 3 dishes takes 2 hours the shortest
The member of staff who greeted us on our early arrival at 7 am was extraordinarilly helpful, accomodating and friendly. The webpage did not indicate that the Hotel was situated on the cliff above Durbuy. This in no way spoilt our stay at the Hotel.
This is a nice hotel in the lovely village of Durbuy, it may be small but well woth a visit.
Excellent location and attentive and friendly staff
The Hotel was in an attractive, quiet, setting, yet within easy walking distance of many good restaurants. The welcome was very warm and the breakfast was excellent. The rooms were quiet, well appointed and comfortable. I would have expected tea/coffee making facilities in this category of hotel, but I realise that many French hotels prefer not to do so. There was a self-service bar in the hotel which provided coffee, not too practical when you're still in your nightclothes!
High quality and newly renovated. Very nice rooms and excellent breakfast. Situated close to the village center
Very friendly staff, excellent location: downtown Durbuy only 5 minutes away and yet a quiet location with own parking space. Comfortable room. No negatives while we were there.
Loved the place. Location, location, location. Everything felt new, very comfortable room, great bed and bathroom. Very good breakfast spread.
Bad information. Booked a "simple" room for me and my wife from France. Arriving - have to pay for a suite. 120 Euro instead of 75. The hotel management or Booking.com (?) refused the cancel the reservation. Mislead website information, really.
Relaxed sphere; probably because of season there was almost no staff, however, good self service was in place; walking distance of "city"center; quiet; private parking
Accueil charmant endroit calme et reposant plein de charme
Great room, great location. Serene atmosphere and the staff could not be more helpful. Very much enjoyed our stay there. Breakfast was expensive at 12 euro
Wireless connection not working quite properly
The lady in charge was very customer friendly
Good sized room, comfortable bed, pleasant staff Only had hand held shower
Beautiful place in a beautiful location. We only stayed for one night but would have loved to stay for more. We will go back!
Peace and quite, great restoration job.
we like the room,very big and comfortable,the breakfast,the place,the silence,gren colour of the grass. there is no elevator.
Very clean, friendly staff, excellent bathroom, lovely countryside around, quiet 12eur for breakfast is not cheap
Friendly staff, very nice quiet environment near a small village. Spacious room. Enjoyed a quiet sit and read outside in the provided lawn chairs with cushions. Showerhead could only be mounted in a low position for sitting, so it was inconvenient to have a shower while standing up.
Very friendly Dutch owners, made us feel welcome. Quiet countryside environment outside Durbuy with great views. Nice walk through the forest to Durbuy. Very new and clean rooms. In the summer it would be advisable to bring a flyswatter, as there are no fly screens in front of the windows
Nice brand new rooms, excellent very friendly host, lots to do in the area.
Friendly atmosphere Clean and new room Lovely surroundings
It may be a stretch to call it a hotel. It is more like a bed & breakfast.
erg gastvrije mensen, goede mix tussen huiselijk/persoonlike aandacht en professioneel
Friendliness and helpfulness of Gert and Anita. A beatufiul Villa with a beautiful garden. Fantastic homemade food, too! Highly recommended. Not at all. A wonderful, pleasant stay. I would hope to return with family.
Kindness of people and location in the natural environment.
Excellent breakfast. The room was very cold, with almost no heating. Lack of privacy.
The owners were very friendly and great hosts. The cleanliness of the hotel/room was excellent. Although the facilities in the rooms are basic they are newly furnished and there are also communal lounge and garden facilities.
Genuineness of the owners. The whole facility, especially the beds. They were the best. Comfort & in the city of Durbuy were our main interests & we fulfilled our desires to the max. No!
The room looked neglected, there was a small fly on the ham at breakfast, on checking out I was told that they did not take credit cards which for a hotel/restaurant of this size was ridicules.
We loved the village and the countryside. We'll be back! The hotel was welcoming and well placed.
I am 82 years of age, walking with a stick, and the hotel made me most comfortable by giving me a rorm on the ground floor. No problem with stairs. Well appointed rooms for each one of us with generous beds and handy light switches. No reason to comment.
Friendly staff, central location Room decor was a little tired. But all in pretty good value for money & ideal for what we wanted to do.
The hotel was fine for our one night stay. If we would have stayed several nights (3 or more) we would have preferred a more comfortable room. The room was good, but basic. Breakfast was allright, but they could have made more out of it.
very very good hotel
This was exactly what we were looking for. The room was quite basic, but comfortable and clean, with a good bathroom. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was as expected. There are plenty of options for eating and drinking around the hotel, Durbuy is a lovely small town, and it is in easy driving distance of many sights and places to walk. I think they can sort out a parking pass if required, although we were silly and did not ask, so we ended up parking a 10-15 minute walk away, in the free car park at the edge of town. We did have to wait a few minutes when we arrived before there was someone around to check us in, as we arrived fairly late (about 20.30 - 21.00), and there was no bell or anything to let them know we were there.
Good breakfast. Nice and clean rooms. Good value for money. Good location in centre of durbuy
value for money and the location
- Reasonable price - good location - spacy room - Some of our goods were removed from the room by the staff while we were out - it took a while before we understood that the poor-looking breakfast buffet was not that poor. You just just had to ask for everything. Juice, yoghurt, water(!) etc. were not on the table, but you got them if you asked. a little strange interpretation of a "buffet" breakfast. - toilet paper replenishment was not included in the daily room clean up, but you had to ask for that as well - our feeling was that either the staff was completely unprofessional by not noticing these basics, or the hotel was run by ultimate cost saving policy. If the guest is too shy to ask, the hotel saves money by not offering the services. The language barrier helps on this as (contrary to the advertisement) the only english speaking person was very seldom available.
The chamber ( junior suite),the staff, the menu (half board). The prakng.
The location The staff was, in general, not very helpful.
The atmoshere and decor were about all that we could say we liked. Very difficult to get internet connection. Phone did not work and when we asked bout it we were told some one would take care of it and no one did.
The room was large and lovely! The dinner was very good. No fridge in the room
Stylish and comfortable with helpful staff. Good parking and delighfully located by the river. Excellent food - worth a visit for this reason alone. Sensible wine list to fit a wide budget.
The location in town is very good. Our room was quite big and the bed very comfortable. We had a lovely view over the river. The terrace is big and next to the river. The restaurant serves very good food and is probably the best in town. The dinner (three course menu "gastronomie") was excellent! The service of the staff was OK and not more. The breakfast could be improved. When we arrived, a lot of things were already gone and not refilled. Moreover, we were really bothered by the many flies in the breakfast room. The equipment of the bath room was rather simple, e.g. no shower curtain, the hair dryer did not work so well. The isolation of the room was not so good (wooden floors!). Conclusion: If you want to have a great dinner, the "Sanglier" is really recommendable. As far as the hotel is concerned, we feel that the value for money is not so good.
The service in the the restaurant was the baddest I have ever experienced in my life. A young woman served for the guests, not bringing dishes, not opening the bottle of wine, while chatting with her colleague during the service. The training for the staff members, especially in the restaurant is indispensable for the hohel to survive in the future.
The location - The town was wonderful
central location lack of designated car parking
The food was good and the staff were all very pleasat and helpful. We had some problems adjusting to a sleeping on a water bed! If I'd known we would have one, I might have requested a conventional mattress....
Food was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful overall cleanliness and excellent value for money no
The staff Where Great, and its right in the middle of town.
The silence ...., at night you do hear nothing at all! The top-class restaurant with great food at very reasonable prices. The people who are running the hotel and de staff are very helpfull and friendly. In the room there was no safe, no hotel documentation, no users guide for the telephone ( wake-up call ; service numbers ; emmergency call numbers ; etc ) . Although this has had no negative impact on our stay.
The staff was very friendly and multilingual. The rooms were luxury (newly refurbished) especially considering it is a 3 star rated hotel. The food was very good and excellent value for money. Durbuy is only 5 km away. And the Ourthe flows right by the Hotel! Great also for families there is a playground with trampoline for children.
Good food, friendly and helpful staff. Location good for vistit to beutiful Durbuy.
we really liked everything- the room was very nice and clean,beautifully decorated. The restraunt is wonderful ! The mattress on the bed is too soft and sinking .
Great hotel, great staff, great food and beautiful location. A wonderful base to discover the Ardennes! The sound proofing of hotel should be sorted out. We stayed in Room 17 and could not sleep before 02.00 am
Very nice. Rooms were good size with nice well fitted bathroom. Breakfast very good.
Lovely location next to the river and excellent outside bar area. Rooms clean and comfortable with overhead power shower.
The vieux Durbuy hotel is not an hotel , it is just a sleeping place, no reception, no bar, no rstuarant, no services nothing... Everything is linked to the Sanglier des Ardennes hotel . I don't understand how you can still rate with 4* such an hotel and rate 3* the Sanglier....... which looks and probably is much better . Very disappointed with the Vieux Durbuy
Very friendly staff, fantastic restaurant. Typical old style with all modern comfort. Staff immediately switches to Dutch when they here you talk it with your family. Fab location.
The hotel is quiet, beautifully decorated and of a high standard with a lot of character, The location is superb. The hotel is linked to the larger Sangrier Hotel in Durbuy which is truly spectacular in its old world charm and quality of restuarant. Being an old property with lots of character, the down side is that the rooms are slightly cosy and the noise from guests on other floors can be heard clearly.
Liked the location in the town in a quiet street. We could sleep with the windows open. Vieux Durbuy is an annex of Sanglier des Ardennes. Guests in vieux durbuy have breakfast and dinner in Sanglier des Ardennes, which makes Vieux Durbuy not really feel like a hotel. Sanglier des Ardennes is an okay place, but a bit worn. It could use a makeover,
Good location, clean room, good service (i.e. tidied on return each evening), practical & clean bathroom and shower. No comments above about staff and facilities because neither existed as such, although the support from Le Sanglier was fine (e.g. they provided a place for us to keep our bicycles) Somewhat annoyng that the double bed actually comprised twin beds next to each other, which tend to separate during the night. As stated in reviews, price is a bit high considering no breakfast, although we knew this in advance.
very comfortable bed, lovely environment, friendly hosts squeaky door of the bathroom
Johann spoke fluent English and was most helpful, friendly and nice. The food he cooked was inventive and generally very good The single beds were narrow and the walls were thin
Warm hospitality by the owner & family, very good dinner, new & clean room, nice atmosphere in quiet Beligian coutryside etc etc... It was a perfect place for our short weekend break!
The ambience - a warm welcome , wonderful modern bedroom (very clean), amazing food in small restaurant (cooked by the proprietor), extremely relaxing, idyllic setting.
Very nice location, clean and comfortable rooms, superb staff and outstanding dinner!
Quiet countryside location; attractive modern stone building; extremely chic interior; well-appointed and comfortable; gourmet food and wine; excellent breakfast; free Wi-fi internet; owners (who also cook and run the place) very pleasant and helpful. You have to ask for water for your room; the dinner menu - perhaps understandably, since there were just 6 guests - has only one option (would be difficult for vegetarians).
Breakfast and dinner were excellent. Nice rooms. Quite environment with beautiful view on the village.
