Ever wanted to sleep in a mine building? The beautiful Terhills hotel is a classy four star hotel in Maasmechelen. The building used to be the former mine building of Eisden. After a multi-million renovation, it now is luxurious four star hotel with all the comfort one could wish for. When you arrive at the Terhills hotel, you will immediately notice the wonderful building and surrounding gardens. It has this magic feeling…
Entering this hotel is entering a classy place with an eye for details. When I stayed there in January 2016, the Terhills hotel was opened for only 10 months. Everything was brand new and I was in love with the smell throughout the hotel.
Check-in was very personal and accommodating. No check-in desk here, guests take place in the saloon and are offered a complimentary welcome drink. I nipped of my glass of prosecco while enjoying the stunning décor, wondering how our room will look like …
We stayed in a comfort room with a view out of the garden in front of the hotel. Although not too large, the room was luxuriously appointed with high class materials and fabrics. To be honest, one of the best beds I have ever slept in. The stunning bathroom featured a large (rain)shower, single sink and toilet. It is all about details here at the Terhills hotel! All the decoration items in the rooms can be bought in the hotel. Very nice room!
The Terhills hotel has a Michelin rated (*) fine dining restaurant. Unfortunately, we didn’t had the chance to check it out as it was fully booked while we were there, but the restaurant looked amazing and without a doubt, the dishes must be great!
The location of the hotel is idyllic. The National Park Hoge Kempen is only a few steps away and offers stunning views all over the area.
Also very interesting is the Maasmechelen Village which is directly located next to the Terhills hotel! The designer brand boutiques surrounded by beautiful countryside and picturesque villages, are just beautiful. The village is huge! There are more than 100 luxurious outlet boutiques offering leading local and international brands at reduced prices all year round. Definitely worth a visit and not only for shopping! We had dinner at Ellis Burger which is located in the village itself and enjoyed our gourmet burgers!
By the way, we were happily surprised when we found out that the village is open on sundays as well. For more information about Maasmechelen Village, do visit their website: http://www.maasmechelenvillage.com/.
After a day of shopping and enjoying a movie at the movie theater (also located next to the hotel), we went off to bed! As said before, the beds here are great! It feels like sleeping on a cloud…
The next day we had breakfast in the beautiful decorated restaurant. It was a delicious breakfast with several regional artisan specialities. Definitely worth the extra cost to enjoy your breakfast here!
The Terhills hotel is a luxurious boutique hotel in a great spot! It was a relaxing getaway and I promise you will feel at ease here… The overall décor and location makes of the Terhills hotel a true jewel!
