Looking for the perfect location for a meeting in the Ardennes?

Daft Hotel is a place for artists and tourists, for influencers and budhists.

Contemporary and quirky. Contemporary design, hidden in the Ardennes forest.

Grab yourself a craft beer from our bar (you do that at home too, right?), discover the home cinema after a busy day of meetings or take a splash in the indoor pool with underwater music. Gather around our fire pit for an aperitif and enjoy our delicious, local catering, prepared with love by our in-house chef!

Have you had enough of classic hotels with little inspiration and no real soul?

Then choose Daft Hotel, with creative spaces, lots of greenery and above all a very personal approach by our team.

Your team + Daft Hotel = A unique story

From 10 guests or more it becomes interesting to rent the entire hotel.

Welcome home, far away from home!

And what else?

You can best understand the vibe of the place if you also know our story.

Next to the hotel you will find Daft Music Studios , one of Europe's largest music recording studios.

Day in day out, international artists record their albums in the impressive studios (e.g. Sigala, Henri PFR, Goose, Bazart, Stephen Malkmus & the Jigs, Universal France, Daan, Jef Neve, De Mens, Blanche, Hooverphonic, …). In order to achieve the best recordings, the context has to be right.

Good vibes, good food and inspiring spaces.... we take that very seriously! Also for your event or seminar.

And... step into the footsteps of legends and organize your own meeting or special event in Daft Studios, it's possible!

In short: Daft Music & Boutique hotel, a new kind of hospitality!

What do we offer?

  • 14 rooms with ensuite bathroom
  • possibility to expand with 4 rooms in the Artist Penthouse above the Daft Studios
  • from May to September extension with a pop-up glamping for another 24 people (= camping with a golden edge!)
  • creative & inspiring meeting rooms
  • home cinema, which can also serve as a break out
  • wellness with heated indoor pool and sauna & a wood-fired dutch tub in the open air
  • for larger groups or special events: expansion possible to the 200m2 recording hall in the Daft Studios

E&C loved Daft!

A bull's-eye for our annual company event where we bring together our employees from all over the world. Guidance and service before, during and after the event by Tine, Stijn and their staff was fantastic, inspiring and flawless. For the event itself, which was conceived as a mini Woodstock, an atmosphere had been created that exceeded our wildest expectations. Writing and recording a song together is highly recommended as team building. And thanks to the ultra-professional way in which this was supervised, recorded and mixed, the end result has become a stunning song with video clip, a unique memory of a magical two days. The only point of criticism: what on earth are we going to have to come up with next year to match this?

Inspiring and successful writers weekend.

We spent three days at Daft with our aspiring screenwriters and coaches for the first Streamz Academy. Everything was arranged down to the last detail, from reception and catering and everything we needed for our sessions. The beautiful surroundings and welcoming staff provided the perfect environment for our workshops.

Our marriage

We celebrated our wedding on March 25 at the Daft Hotel and it was unforgettable. Attentive listening from Tine and JF for our desires and expectations. A nice and smooth organization and a lot of discretion on the part of the staff throughout the day. A perfect meal that will delight young and old as well as for breakfasts! We felt at home and our expectations were more than fulfilled. A big congratulations to Tine & Stijn for creating such a beautiful place and such a magical universe, we can't wait to come back!

An awesome venue for our leadership event

Daft Hotel was the perfect location for our leadership training. The inspiring setting, both indoors and outdoors, with such a variety of spots to choose from for each part of our programme made it a great succes. We loved having conversations in the lounge as wells as around the fire under the stars. And we made the most of the home cinema with amazing audio to share inspirational video's. The DAFT team did their utmost to serve us. Great hospitality with a personal touch.

Feedback from Daft Boutique & Music Hotel on this review:

Oh Nanke, what beautiful words. You describe very well what we are trying to offer here: a personal approach and an inspiring setting, where it is wonderful to "come home". Always welcome for your next leadership program! Regards, Tine

Creditix Offsite

From Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon, we left Offsite with the entire Credix team and were welcomed in the Daft Hotel.
The communication in advance was excellent and Daft fulfilled all our wishes. Tasty food, nice indoor and outdoor areas and very friendly staff.
Everything was in tip-top order and we highly recommend this!

Great place for your team!

We stayed at this hotel for three days for our team building. Everything went perfectly: smooth communication with the hotel, delicious catering, helpful personnel, etc. The hotel has a lot to offer (nice activities in the area, a quiet place, swimming pool and cinema, etc) and they helped us with every question. Would recommend!

Amazing premises for a team building of 40 to 50 international colleagues

Tine and her team were absolutely amazing in welcoming us to their premises. We organised a fully disconnected 3-day event mixing business workshops in the studio, bamboo construction activities in the garden, e-cycling on the spa circuit, photoshoots, as well as barbecue and party time – a true blast – and quoted by many colleagues as the company’s best team building ever! Rooms and food quality were also up to par with the rest of the experience. Thank you again for both your very professional, pleasant and proactive approach to the whole event organisation.

Feedback from Daft Boutique & Music Hotel on this review:

Hi Gregory, what a lovely review :) We are happy to hear that you had one of the best company teambuildings ever here at Daft. That's exactly why we do it for: offer an amazing experience in terms of stay, food, activitities and follow up :) Have a nice day and be our guest any time! Tine

Super location and very welcoming

The Daft hotel is beautifully situated and the people who run the hotel provide a great welcome and a carefree setting for your stay.
We had a very nice two days with the team during which we had a good mix between substantive work and relaxing together, because the Daft hotel is equipped to facilitate both activities. An absolute must!
