HISTORY OF OUR HOTEL :
in the middle ages, an important road passed by this point through the region. That is why several taverns and rest places for the horses were situated along this road. Also like the first building on this location, the main function was to provide a resting place for the horses, change the horses and provide some drinks and food for the travellers. Historical documents teach us that a tavern was situated on our location, along the main road form the north (Antwerp) to the south (Caen). That is how the name of our hotel has been given ZUIDWEGE ( the road to the south). A lot later, the funtion of resting place for the horses fainted and the owners modified the tavern to farm with cafe. Some years later, the family of the former owner took over the business and modernised it entirely. As industry grew quickly, also transport became more important and loads of trucks came to the region. Delivering primary goods to produce machinery and afterwards dispatching the finished products to the wholesalers. Those truck drivers, looked for sleeping places around the fabriks and this was the reason why a couple of basic sleeping facilities were installed above the tavern.
Around 1980 was the time for expansion, a building lot was bought from the neighbours and a hotel with 16 modern rooms with en-suite facilities being built on
In 1997, we (the family Mylle) took over the hotel/restaurant. The former owner retired. Because of the business clientele, the growing demand for single rooms, made us decide to transform the parking garage into 4 single rooms.
In 2008, we entirely restaured and modernised 10 of the original rooms. Of course in the latest materials and fire-proof as described. Airconditionning in the double and triple rooms is another improvement.
The latest asset is our wifi-connection.
