“Unique, Cosy, Homely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

As somebody who’s trotted around the globe a little bit, I’ve come to appreciate one thing more than anything else when staying at Inns, Hotels and B&B’s: Owners who really care about their establishment and the service they provide to their guests…Auberge de Bouvignes has such an owner.

My Fiance and I stayed here for two nights over the Easter weekend. From start to finish Vincent, the owner, went out of his way to see to our every need and make us feel at home. Aside from a spotlessly clean, newly refurbished room at a very reasonable price, other things that stood out were...

1) being driven to and from Dinant by Vincent
2) freshly squeezed Orange Juice for breakfast – a couple of glasses every morning!
3) being told of the history of the area and the Hotel by Vincent
4) welcome drinks…on both days we were there
5) a complimentary aperitif and snack before dinner
6) as much bottled water as we wanted for our room

If we ever find ourselves in the area again, we will not need to think twice about where to stay. Five stars out of five in every respect.

We stayed for four week nights. The rooms were large, impeccably clean and well presented. The bed was comfortable and it had proper cotton linen. All beautiful. Vincent has clearly spent years restoring this wonderful old building authentically and tastefully. The breakfast was wonderful. High quality coffee, ham and cheese and fresh baked breads and pastries. This is an exceptional inn and is made more exceptional by the incredible service that is provided. The hosts provide lifts to and from the station and to and from dinner. Four languages are spoken and nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. Vincent and Elena run this inn in a welcoming, warm and unique way. You will not do better

We were looking for a place to spend the night on a drive from Brugge to Bastogne and then onto Germany. We found this place on TripAdvisor. It was a very nice surprise. Vincent and his wife were very helpful and great hosts. The room was big and clean and a nice breakfast was served. Vincent even drove us to dinner in town so we could have a few drinks and picked us up when we were done. Great service!

My wife and I took a driving trip around Belgium and were taken by the beautiful pictures we saw of the river valley near Dinant and the descriptions of L' Auberge de Bouvignes. We had a wonderful time, in no small part due to the incredible hospitality we were shown by Vincent and his wife. A highlight of our trip to Belgium was the long scenic bike ride we took along the valley and then up the excellent bike path up to the Maredous Abbey where we had a delightful lunch along with a wonderful Abbey ale. Vincent provided the bikes and the directions of course! That night, he wanted to make sure we could have a drink with dinner and not worry about driving the 10 minutes back from Dinant so he drove us to town and gave us his cell number to call when we were ready to be picked up. There was nothing that we asked about that was too much to ask. Our room had been recently restored and the windows faced directly into the side of the mountain/hill - not much on the scenery but extremely private! The hotel is right along the main road with a low wall on the other side - you walk to that low wall, down a few steps and you are right on the river side and right where the bike path is - could not be more convenient if you like to walk or ride. (and according to Vincent, this path is where Rommel used when he stayed at the inn in the early days of WWII). Dinant is worth seeing for its fortress on the hill and its lovely church but for us the attraction was really the lovely countryside and the spectacular hospitality.
On a practical note - great free WiFi and a really reasonable room rate were icing on the cake. Really an exceptional place to stay.

Stayed for 3 nights in October 2011. Superb hospitality and the room was excellent, large clean and very well kept and upto date. Free Wi-Fi was available throughout.

We were made to feel extremely welcome by Vincent and Elena with a welcome drink waiting for us. Breakfasts are very good and unlike some hotels you can take them whenever you wish in the morning.

We stayed during the week when the restaurant is not open. This proved to be no problem at all as Vincent will take you to a local restaurant of your choice and collect you, so no drinking and driving problems.

They spend the time to be friendly and as it was our first visit spent time telling us where to go in the locality whether it be for walks or cycling or to visit a local town or Abbeye. They have maps and guides available to help you plan your day. Vincent also speaks 4 languages which helps no end.

All in all a great experience.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter although all are well soundproofed.

We chose this inn for the last few nights of a two week trip ( where we stayed in some lovely 5 star hotels) and it is definitely the one we will remember most for years to come! The hospitality of the owners was outstanding from the greeting as we arrived, to the maps and advice for day trips, to the enjoyable discussions in the evening and during the fabulous breakfast to our fond farewells. We loved our room in the back... Spacious, quiet, charming with stone walls. Do not be put off by the road in front or the train tracks... You cannot hear either and you do feel you are off the beaten path a bit. As mentioned in other reviews, the hosts are the "secret ingredient" that makes this inn a great choice.

Stayed for two nights in September 2011, all I can say is the hosts are fantastic the room no 4 we had was huge and very clean. Restaurant was very good, overall lovely experience. Normally we stay at the best rated large hotel around, but due to some events happening in the area we booked into Auberge de Bouvignes, all I can say is lucky us!
