The town of Huy in Belgium is a small municipality, with a population of a little over 20,000. This fact, however, belies the town’s historical importance as one of the most important cities alone the Meuse river throughout the early stages of the last millennium. It also should not detract from the fact that there are plenty of things worth seeing in and around Huy, as well as some excellent restaurants in which to eat, and bars in which to relax with a fine Belgian beer. There are also a lot of wonderful hotels to stay in, with customers taking to the internet to talk in glowing terms about their experiences. So if you’re giving some thought to visiting Wallonia any time soon, let their opinions guide you when picking a place to stay.

A specific highpoint of this charming B&B is the chance to borrow, free of charge, one or more of the bikes they have on offer and explore the nearby countryside from the saddle.

Hotel Naxhelet offers its own golf course, but even if you’re not one for a few rounds yourself, there is an onsite wellness facility which will allow you to get the most relaxing trip imaginable. The overall feel of the hotel is modern and welcoming; set outside Huy in the nearby town of Wanze, it’s a fine place to hire a bicycle and pedal around the countryside at your leisure.
Online reviewers say: “A hidden gem.” “Fantastic evening meal.” “5* quality of service.”
“Atelier”, meaning “workshop” or “studio”, is your first hint that this vacation rental may be a tad more arty than your average holiday stop. The inside of the home is impeccable and decorated with a discerning eye - the outside is some of the most beautiful countryside Belgium has to offer, and the host even lays on a bottle of wine for an aperitif on your arrival.
Online reviewers say: “Great host of a wonderful guest house.” “Wonderfully designed and decorated.” “Beautiful area.”
This beautiful, rurally-located B&B lives up to its name, which translates effectively as “Castle of Fine Expectations”. You’ll certainly expect good things when you see it from the outside and, with its sun terrace and balconies, it’s a magnificent place to rest for a break.
Online reviewers say: “I loved my stay!” “I will be coming back here.” “Quite simply, magnificent.”
Les Augustins has a bit of history to it - it’s a former convent built in the 17th-century. This certainly bestows on it a certain sense of antiquated charm, but the accommodation is anything but out-of-date. Solo travelers can stay here for less than the average price, and even double rooms are competitively priced, comfortable and modern.
Online reviewers say: “Charming old building.” “Very spacious and comfortable.” “Great views.”
Be honest: have you ever stayed in a hotel that’s surrounded by a moat? Book a stay at Château de Vierset and that will be what you get. It’s a genuine 11th-century castle in the beautiful village of Vierset-Barse, with wooden beams and parquet floors, plus a breakfast buffet which means you can eat like royalty as well as sleep where royalty slept.
Online reviewers say: “Location is stunning and the inside is amazing.” “You can almost feel the history.” “Nothing can express how wonderful it was.”
Staying in the du Fort, you’ll have excellent views of the Meuse while you eat a breakfast made from fresh local ingredients (as well as from some of the rooms; others look over the excellent garden). With free Wi-Fi in all rooms, and private bathrooms, this is an accommodation that showcases Huy at its best.
Online reviewers say: “Great food, very low price.” “Very friendly hosts.” “Really felt at home.”
A hotel in the undoubtedly Belgian town of Huy, but with an Italian name and an Italian restaurant attached: there are definitely worse places to spend a holiday. Chiaro di Luna looks workaday from the outside, but the rooms are comfortable and spacious, and the attached restaurant a joy.
Online reviewers say: “Great value.” “Extremely comfortable beds!” “Splendid view.”
Chiaro di Luna
Address: Place Saint Séverin 2/b
