Authentic and unique Bed and Breakfast in Limburg 

Unique getaway: Sleep in an old Gin Distillery in the Belgian countryside next to Hasselt




Amuse-couche is situated near the City of Hasselt, at the end of a beautiful countryside road. You won't be able to miss it, it is located in an old Gin distillery (Gin Claes) whose chimney is visible from the road.

It is in a countryside setting that we discover this ruin transformed into a charming hotel. The soul and the structure of the building have been preserved and give it this raw and pure aspect.


The bed and breakfast offers 4 large rooms and a bright breakfast room.

The whole is very harmonious, all the walls are painted in white tones to which are added the colourful notes of the chosen furniture. The owners have transformed it while keeping its original structure, generous in volume and luminosity. Its high ceilings and large windows add a certain elegance to the converted building. Stefan, the husband of Jessy, the host, is a painter and definitely added his touch. You will find it in the rooms.

For the record, the hotel's name, "amuse-couche" comes from the word "amuse-bouche". The unexpected pleasure of having an amuse-bouche in a restaurant applies to this guest room. Jessy also recommends a good gastro table in Hasselt, the Ansoler.

THE service

Breakfast is served and cooked by Jessy, the host. A generous plate will be served to you, Jessy offers you a fresh fruit salad, eggs, cheese, yoghurt, different kinds of bread and many other delicious surprises. 


Jessy runs the guesthouse she moved into, with her husband, and children almost 15 years ago. A crazy gamble they have taken up with flying colours. Jessy will be at your disposal throughout your stay: attentive and discreet, she will make your stay as pleasant as possible. Like the “amuse bouche” that surprise and delight us at the restaurant at the appetizer, Jessy will take care of it as soon as you arrive.


Little by little, Jessy and her husband are becoming more environmentally conscious. In recent months, solar panels have been installed and should be able to meet all the energy needs of the house. And an exciting agricultural project ahead: Jessy is passionate about wine and hopes to plant a vineyard soon. 

THE little extra

Situated close to many of Limburg province's attractions, the bed and breakfast is ideally located to discover the region. There is plenty to do and see: the city of Hasselt, the numerous bicycle paths (the knooppunten), the abbey of Herkenrode or the Bokrijk, a museum and open-air park with a bicycle path across the water.

A bicycle shelter is available for your use. If you don't have one, you can rent bicycles at Herkenrode Abbey.
