Pim en Jane Keizer bought the old cityhall in Stavoren, a small historic city in the province of Friesland, The Netherlands. It serves already as a wedding location and they are creating a wonderful honeymoonsuite in it.
Its website is under construction, but promises something beautiful.
Recently we stayed in this new exclusive private guesthouse.
Emanuel Vanhaecke, a brother of the hostess of the Small Luxury Pandhotel in Bruge is the host of Maison le Dragon. It has three suites and, with a garden in between, it is located back to back with the Pandhotel on short walkting distance of The Markt (market), the centre of this well kept medieval city with a nice array of shops and cultural sightseeing opportunities. One of the suites has its own terrace with Bear Chairs and all three suites are roomy and very well appointed by by Emanuel’s mother. Each suite has a bath and seperate shower stall.
Starting a new venture like this makes you forget some things easily. When a famous Dutch football (soccer for the Americans amongst you) player stayed with him, Emanuel realised he had forgotten a proper guestbook. He run away to fetch a guestbook. Now the photo of this famous guest together with a nice review are on the first page of his guestbook.
The people from Designhotel La Bergere in Maastricht are developing St Martens Lane, probably the first Dutch non smoking hotel.
Update The photo is from the finished hotel.
