The historic town of Namur in Belgium’s Wallonia region may be best known for its medieval castle, but less than a stone’s throw away you will find the stunning Château de Namur hotel and restaurant. The haute-cuisine restaurant, incorporating Belgium’s top school for chefs, is a destination experience in itself whilst the hotel has recently undergone a lavish one and a half million euro renovation. The 29 newly refurbished rooms feature a glamorous, highly contemporary mix of golds, chocolate browns and damask motifs combined with designer furnishings and bedding, whilst retaining the original period features of the château – such as high ceilings and cornicing.
