What a superb B & B, excellent location, friendly and helpful hosts and quality service. Simon says is set apart by the attention to detail, the room was spotlessly clean and everything provided that you need. Huge comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom, large opening windows all in a lovingly restored Belgian house. Simon gave us free tickets to the river boat...

Cannot recommend enough. Lovely rooms, 'boutique' style, clean and spacious. The service was great, Simon, Chris and staff cannot do enough to make your stay memorable. The breakfast was superb, fresh and delicious and plenty for all. Wonderful coffee. Great location with plenty of restaurants nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a great 2-night stay at this small B&B. Run by Simon & Chrisopher, two amazingly friendly guys. And excellent breakfast. We also enjoyed Vache, an enourmous house-cast (currently on a diet :-)). Coming from a quite place in the country we did hear streetsounds all (Friday- and Saturday-)night (we didn't find the provided earplugs untill we left). But...

Very friendly B&B/cafe bistro run by Simon and Christopher with very helpful staff. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and well presented. Breakfast in the cafe/bistro is excellent and the staff can not do enough to help you. Two buts. The rooms are up a stiff flight of stairs (40 steps) but the guys are only to eager to help with luggage...

We stayed at Simon Says for 4 nights in September 2010 for the second part of our anniversary and loved it. The old building has been really well renovated so that you have all the bonuses of a new hotel, eg brand new bathroom, bar in the room, nice contemporary finishes but you can still see the character in the...

I had a great 2 night stay here with my partner. We really loved the design of the room and breakfast in the bustling cafe was great (a reserved table every morning). Staff there were really helpful and friendly. Because it is above a cafe when the cafe is closed there are no staff around to help. Also worth noting...

At a friend's recommendation, we stayed at Simon Says for 3 nights. The locations was excellent; we were able to walk to a plethora of restaurants, pubs, and tourist destinations. Simon and Chris were gracious hosts, providing us with maps, recommendations, and even offering to make dinner reservations for us (if you arrive on a weekend, this is very helpful!)....

As "wrinklies" we were very pleased with the service we received from the enthusiastic staff - we were even helped by Simon to book in online.

We stayed here in April when we went to the Floralies Exhibition as a birthday treat for my wife. We had a wonderful reception from Simon and all his staff, and were made thoroughly at home for our visit. The B&B is handily located close to restaurants and bars (great recommendations from Simon), and close to the old centre. The...

“Our room was the smaller of the two and plenty big!”

“there are only two rooms --- I think #2 is what we stayed in (the larger of the two). Be sure and ask which rooms are open on your date and pick the larger if available.”

“The steps are steep and narrow by USA standards but my mom (84 years) was able to master them. There is some street noise but not too bad.”

“We slept in the smaller, slightly cheaper room, and it was a great size with a gorgeous big window overlooking the square. We didn't see the other room but loved ours!”

“Simon Says offers only two rooms since its a small B&B so booking ahead is recommendable. Both rooms are great.”
