Beware they get your reservation right & send a confirmation prior Aug 22, 2011
My husband and I wanted to have a relaxing, romantic weekend away. So I made a reservation and we rented a car for the weekend in question. I have never had such difficulties making a reservation anywhere.

The first time I called I made a reservation and gave my e-mail address in order to receive an e-mail confirmation. A few days later, not having received one, I called again to verify my information was correct and asked, again, to be sent a confirmation. Again, no confirmation. So I call, again, a few days later, to be sent a confirmation. This time it turns out they had the date for the wrong week (one week later), so I asked if they could still change it. The receptionist said that was possible and so he changed it or just explicitly stated that he had. Suffice it to say, I still did not receive the confirmation. It was now close to the day of our stay and I decided to call the hotel before we left to confirm the reservation and ask for the check-in-time. It turned out we had no reservation and had no rooms available.

I always like to have a confirmation in hand to both avoid these sorts of mistakes and to prove that I have a reservation. I got gift-vouchers to use at this hotel chain, but frankly, I really don't know if I want to do business with them. Sending an e-mail confirmation should really not be so difficult. We also have the expense of renting a car this weekend that we have had no use for. So incompetent!

The Finest Château of Belgium Mar 25, 2009
After being able to save some extra money during the expensive holidays last year, I decided to spend it on a trip (because that's what real TB's do).

So I searched the internet and booked a room for one night at a rather fancy looking hotel; the Château du Lac.

After arriving late at night in Genval, approximately 20 km outside Brussels, there was a warm welcome at the reception and a very good bottle of champagne on the room. Even though I was tired I opened the bottle of champagne, watched some TV on the great bed and finally fell asleep.

The next morning I got up and after opening my curtains I was amazed by the gorgeous view from my hotel room, looking over a small lake, forest and some typical Belgian houses. Apparently I completely missed that the night before.

I quickly showered, got dressed and went down for my breakfast.

When I arrived in the breakfast room, after taking the stairs in the small tower, I was stunned by the quality and quantity of the breakfast. Everything was there! I was trying to find a missing piece, but that assignment was quickly forgotten when I received a glass of champagne from one of the very friendly waiters.

There I was, enjoying a marvelous breakfast in a excellent hotel and planning my trip to Brussels while I was looking at a typical Belgian scenery. I couldn't be more pleased at that moment.

Half an hour later I finished my breakfast, got into my car and drove to Brussels within 15 minutes and at that point I realized that Château du Lac must be one the best hotels of Belgium.

Thanks for the review. It looks very lovely. It's like a castle! So funny though, it's always the champagne's fault! LoL!

Chateau du Lac in Genval Mar 02, 2009
This week I had the luck to stay at Chateau du Lac in the north-east section of Genval, which is situated 15 km or 25 min drive southeast of Brussels.

The view of the hotel and from the hotel is beautiful; the castle is situated next to a lake and a huge fountain adds to the view. The surrounding area is besides the lake covered with forest and it just is an area that invites for a walk.

The reception staffs were friendly and helpful, some of the girls were a bit sky about their English but it just added to the charm. The indoor decorations are nice, friendly and the their choice of colours adds to the high level.

The hotel offers an extended range of 121 rooms, from the Executive Room to the Superior Room. The room I had was very nice; it was large and had two large beds and a fairly large bathroom with a spa tub. The hotel hosts several amenities like their great restaurant, room Service, Bar, 24h Front desk, Tennis, Non Smoking Rooms, Laundry, Breakfast Room Service, and there is Free Parking are available at the hotel.

The Chateau du Lac is the only five-star hotel in Wallonia. It is also the only one with rooms situated between a lake and a park. The latter boasts a Trianon, like Versailles and a William Tell chapel, identical to the one on the Lac des Quatre-Cantons! Both romantic and modern.
