Lovely setting, very quiet and out of town. The hotel has a large garden that has a gate to the river, which has an extensive walk....it doesn't have a restaurant, but there is a very good Chinese restaurant within a five minute walk. Other restaurants are available, but involve a short drive. The Hotel is a little dated, but is clean and very quaint! Didn't have breakfast, but the dining room had a lovely view of the garden, and would guess it was good.

Wow, what a historical hotel. A great building on the bank off the river. We were in the area for fishing and this suited us very well. Very friendly team running the hotel and a great breakfast. The whole package and building has a history and it shows but not in any way that would undermine a stay. No restaurant for an evening meal but enough options within walking distance. All in all, we are happy to have stayed there. Thanks

This was a stop within easy reach of the ferry home to Newcastle. We had just done 1500 miles on our motorbikes to Italy and back visiting Wiesbaden, Villingen Schwinningen, Bergamo and Colmar and had just travelled through some pretty horrendous rain. The villa sits off the road and accessed by a steep downhill gravely drive -not what we needed at this point. It sits in its own large landscaped grounds and has smashing views of the river and beyond. However, the welcome was good and the owners 11 yr old grandson insisted on helping with our luggage which was great. The huge house is built over 5 floors all serviced by a lift. Rooms are on floors 1 and 2 with floor 5 being the owners and the basement being. at one time and according to the buttons in the lift, the smoking area it seems. Although there was no sign of smokers anywhere the slight smell of smoke was everywhere but it did not spoil our stay. Our rooms were huge, clean and very comfortable. We were at the back of the house and had a very peaceful night. Outside our window ran a wide ledge covered in tin acting as a rain gutter. The rain drummed on it a bit. but we were too tired to let it bother us.The bathroom was big with twin hand basins and the toiletries were good. We had the best towels of our trip so far. The breakfast was also the best, with plenty to eat both hot and cold and freshly made. There are three local restaurants within 5 -10 minutes walk. One was a Chinese food restaurant which we were advised strongly not to go to. Another, the furthest away, was a gourmet restaurant and was too pricey for us. The nearest was across the road and was excellent. It has a limited menu and wine was on the high side but it was perfect. We had a really nice time there with excellent food and lovely staff. Going anywhere else from the villa would need a car. There are no taxis in the village and calling a taxi from Namur was going to cost 50 euros. We passed through Namur on the way to Amsterdam and it looked very nice and interesting

Yes it is an old villa and yes we had a large room with a large bathroom and a large balcony, but the interior is definitely not 4 stars in 2013, and in turn the price/performance ratio is just not quite right. Also owner(?) smokes, so apart from the guest rooms the whole house smells of smoke, which was one of the reasons we decided to opt out of breakfast - again, probably acceptable 20 years ago but not these days. Could be a really nice place - gorgeous view over Meuse river and grand architecture, but needs a refurbishment.

My friends and I spent four nights just outside Namur, Belgium, in this old-world charm, glorious villa; and EVERYTHING about it was perfect. The Villa has only 8 rooms, four on each floor, making it feel more like a bed & breakfast than a hotel. My friends had a room (Chambre 4) about the size of a small New York City apartment! It had a king bed; crystal chandelier hanging from the middle of the ceiling and wall sconces; sitting area with chairs, round table, and coffee table; and large French doors leading to a very large balcony facing the Meuse River. My room (Chambre 1), bathroom, and balcony were smaller but equally charming and comfortable, and it was wonderful each night to sleep with my window and French doors swung open. The first floor, or "zero" level in Europe, contained a spacious foyer with angled wooden stairs, an "office" marked by gorgeous woodworking, a bar/lounge area containing a bay window, period-type furniture, and many plants & flowers, a small toilette & phone room that had an intricately designed, exquisite tile floor; and the breakfast room was all windows, thus making it bright and cheery. Each table had a vase with two roses, and the linens and delicate dishes used all added to the pleasure of our breakfast. Each morning there were two baskets of homemade croissants, pain au chocolate, a pastry with pineapple & currants and plain, wheat, & baguette rolls. On the table was also a plate of 4 or 5 kinds of sliced fresh fruit, a tray of yogurt, cream cheese, marmelade, honey, and various wrapped cheeses, a pitcher of orange juice and a bottomless pot of coffee and/or tea. In addition, we could have cereal, omelettes or any other type of egg, ham, and slices of cheese. On top of our delight with the accommodations and breakfast, our proprietress, Gisele, and her staff could not have been more helpful, friendly, or gracious. This is definitely the place to call your home away from home!

Room Tip: There is a lift so all rooms are handicap accessible.
