5. Different designs

Stanhope Hotel has a very interesting story: it was a farm at the very beginning, it became later a nuns’ convent, then a Flemish family bought it and finally it turned into the first five star hotel of Belgium. We can appreciate its history in a classic decoration that remain in some elements of its past. The decoration of all our rooms follow an English, luxurious and royal style.

Nevertheless, they have all their own character. Located in four big houses: House of Queens, House of Lords, House of Ambassadors and House of Presidents. Each room has a different, unique design by three different and talented interior designers: Lady Joan Stafford (United Kingdom), Trond Ramsøskar (Norway) and Pieter Porters (Belgium).
