Best Belgian B&B: luxury suite in Ghent

Bed & breakfast Ghent

Bed & breakfast De Waterzooi in Ghent is the best B&B in Belgium.

B&B Waterzooi was voted best Belgian bed and breakfast of the year last Saturday. The award was presented during B&B Expo in Brussels. 

At B&B Waterzooi guests are staying in the medieval heart of Ghent, in a luxury suite in a beautifully restored eighteenth century building. From the suite they look out onto the castle ‘Gravensteen’ and the historic towers. It’s a unique experience, and that’s exactly what bed & breakfast is about! Personal contact, quality, authenticity and small scale, there is where a B&B makes the difference.

Other winners
There were four other winners. Numbers 2 to 5: Huis ’t Schaep in Bruges, B&B Le Manoir Ivoire in Namur, Chez Gaspart in Brussels and The King of Spain in Antwerp.

Cultural Heritage
“The five cottages are all examples of special places to stay, where you find a beautiful combination of the historic past of the building and modern comfort. All five innkeepers make much effort to protect their city’s cultural heritage”, Weekend Knack said Monday.

In the Netherlands, there are many B&Bs in historic heritage too. Just look at this list of adresses on
