Special, historic property

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this lodge--from the 16th century! The registered property has been beautifully updated leaving the historic features--original walls, windows and floors--intact, while creating a modern kitchen, bathroom, etc. Kay and Christian obviously take great pride in their property, as Kay spent ample time "showing and telling" how the original features were maintained when the renovations were made. Beautiful view of the Gravensteen and adjacent square. The kitchen is wonderfully appointed with everything needed for a simple breakfast or complete dinner.

Yes, the floors are rough, there are low ceilings in places, and the stairs are uneven, but we would definitely return for a longer stay.

Two bedrooms with comfortable beds; we slept in the one away from the street/square/tram, but this property would be very nice for two couples or a family of four.

Great location to explore all of Ghent!

Excellent location & comfortable flat

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely recommend staying at this flat with its view of the castle and proximity to interesting bars & restaurants, plus being handily on the tram line from the station. We had a great time and found Kay very helpful when she showed us into the apartment. The only downside was my friends staying in the back bedroom were plagued and bitten by mosquitoes.

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the separate self-catering Lodge across the square opposite the castle entrance. A blend of old building (steepish steps but not as steep as they once were. Kay will explain!) and new equipment (Induction cooker. It helps if you know how these things work. Kay will explain!). Particularly comfortable beds. The weather was wet and cold so it was good to come in to a very warm house at the end of the day. Breakfast is available next door if you can't be bothered to boil an egg. Wonderful situation with immediate access to the town centre. Tram (Line 1) to/from station stops outside the door, but for three people it costs no more to take a taxi. We would like to come back in the summer. Many thanks to Kay for her warm and friendly welcome.

Beautiful home plus convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully renovated home (above a Gelato store) right next to the castle. Very convenient location to view historic sites and within very easy walking distance to lots of places to eat and shop. We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed having more space than a hotel room. It truly felt like a home away from home. The owners, Christian and Kay, were very friendly and helpful and we were able to park our rental car just a few blocks away in their allocated parking spots. All of the photos on the website accurately reflect the accommodations. Two lovely outside sitting areas, a well appointed kitchen (we didn't cook there but you certainly could if you wanted to), and a cozy living room. While we didn't stay in the B and B, it looked lovely as well. I highly recommend staying here.

Amazing experience -- with a twist

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. Every modern convenience with old world charm. But there was a twist in our plans which ended up revealing the real charm and hospitality of the owners -- Christian and Kay. I stepped off a step and rolled my ankle when on our way to dinner. Long story short , broken bone that required surgery. Christian and Kay treated us with extreme care and concern and thought of every detail to help us through this unexpected twist. Kay even went shopping for clothes that would fit over a cast -- no easy feat in this "skinny jeans" fashion trend. These are special people. We will never forget how they helped make a scary situation less scary. I only wish we could have enjoyed this gorgeous home and Ghent, but we will plan to return. The location is perfect and an easy tram ride from the train station The home is gorgeous with every amenity you could possibly need. The vision and design these owners put into this building is simply stunning. It's gorgeous. Don't hesitate on booking this beautiful Belgian abode.
