Hotel Heritage

The Hotel

Lovingly restored

Johan & Isabelle met in 1991 and dreamt of the same challenge: running their own business. Seeing the building, they immediately fell in love with this magnificent house. The feeling was right, this would be their future…lovingly restoring the building to its former glory and transforming it into a charming boutique hotel.




The earliest written mention of the house that was found, dates back to 1390. The building was designed in 1869 by Louis Delacenserie. The former owner ordered the construction of the new house in 1869. The property had a walled garden in the new Jacob van Ooststraat, fully fenced with two small entry gates. The decoration above the door was built on it in 1922 as ordered by Crédit Général Liégeois to enlarge their bank branch, established in the Niklaas Desparsstraat 11.
