“We want our guests to feel the warmth of our family hotel”, explain Jennifer and Thorsten. A hotel that's chic, cosy and authentic all at the same time. That’s why the rooms are extremely comfortable, designed to be genuine havens of tranquillity. Warm colours and elegant materials promote a real sense of calmness and well-being. The strong ‘alpine’ style encapsulates this region of eastern Belgium, often delightfully snow-covered in winter, where generosity and hospitality fuel a particular way of life.
