Looking for the perfect location for a meeting in the Ardennes?

Daft Hotel is a place for artists and tourists, for influencers and budhists.

Contemporary and quirky. Contemporary design, hidden in the Ardennes forest.

Grab yourself a craft beer from our bar (you do that at home too, right?), discover the home cinema after a busy day of meetings or take a splash in the indoor pool with underwater music. Gather around our fire pit for an aperitif and enjoy our delicious, local catering, prepared with love by our in-house chef!

Have you had enough of classic hotels with little inspiration and no real soul?

Then choose Daft Hotel, with creative spaces, lots of greenery and above all a very personal approach by our team.

Your team + Daft Hotel = A unique story

From 10 guests or more it becomes interesting to rent the entire hotel.

Welcome home, far away from home!

And what else?

You can best understand the vibe of the place if you also know our story.

Next to the hotel you will find Daft Music Studios , one of Europe's largest music recording studios.

Day in day out, international artists record their albums in the impressive studios (e.g. Sigala, Henri PFR, Goose, Bazart, Stephen Malkmus & the Jigs, Universal France, Daan, Jef Neve, De Mens, Blanche, Hooverphonic, …). In order to achieve the best recordings, the context has to be right.

Good vibes, good food and inspiring spaces.... we take that very seriously! Also for your event or seminar.

And... step into the footsteps of legends and organize your own meeting or special event in Daft Studios, it's possible!

In short: Daft Music & Boutique hotel, a new kind of hospitality!

What do we offer?

  • 14 rooms with ensuite bathroom
  • possibility to expand with 4 rooms in the Artist Penthouse above the Daft Studios
  • from May to September extension with a pop-up glamping for another 24 people (= camping with a golden edge!)
  • creative & inspiring meeting rooms
  • home cinema, which can also serve as a break out
  • wellness with heated indoor pool and sauna & a wood-fired dutch tub in the open air
  • for larger groups or special events: expansion possible to the 200m2 recording hall in the Daft Studios

An awesome venue for our leadership event

Daft Hotel was the perfect location for our leadership training. The inspiring setting, both indoors and outdoors, with such a variety of spots to choose from for each part of our programme made it a great succes. We loved having conversations in the lounge as wells as around the fire under the stars. And we made the most of the home cinema with amazing audio to share inspirational video's. The DAFT team did their utmost to serve us. Great hospitality with a personal touch.

Oh Nanke, what beautiful words. You describe very well what we are trying to offer here: a personal approach and an inspiring setting, where it is wonderful to "come home". Always welcome for your next leadership program! Regards, Tine

Creditix Offsite

From Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon, we left Offsite with the entire Credix team and were welcomed in the Daft Hotel.
The communication in advance was excellent and Daft fulfilled all our wishes. Tasty food, nice indoor and outdoor areas and very friendly staff.
Everything was in tip-top order and we highly recommend this!

Great place for your team!

We stayed at this hotel for three days for our team building. Everything went perfectly: smooth communication with the hotel, delicious catering, helpful personnel, etc. The hotel has a lot to offer (nice activities in the area, a quiet place, swimming pool and cinema, etc) and they helped us with every question. Would recommend!

Feedback from Daft Boutique & Music Hotel on this review:

Thanks Nona for these kind words! So nice to hear you enjoyed it to the fullest. Be our guest anytime at Daft!

A wonderful three days

From the first contact already a very good feeling about this place. You can go there with all questions and the three-day itself was a wonderful experience. A place to relax but also to enjoy the beautiful nature and the beautiful surroundings. A team building event you will never forget!

Amazing premises for a team building of 40 to 50 international colleagues

Tine and her team were absolutely amazing in welcoming us to their premises. We organised a fully disconnected 3-day event mixing business workshops in the studio, bamboo construction activities in the garden, e-cycling on the spa circuit, photoshoots, as well as barbecue and party time – a true blast – and quoted by many colleagues as the company’s best team building ever! Rooms and food quality were also up to par with the rest of the experience. Thank you again for both your very professional, pleasant and proactive approach to the whole event organisation.

Feedback from Daft Boutique & Music Hotel on this review:

Hi Gregory, what a lovely review :) We are happy to hear that you had one of the best company teambuildings ever here at Daft. That's exactly why we do it for: offer an amazing experience in terms of stay, food, activitities and follow up :) Have a nice day and be our guest any time! Tine

Super location and very welcoming

The Daft hotel is beautifully situated and the people who run the hotel provide a great welcome and a carefree setting for your stay.
We had a very nice two days with the team during which we had a good mix between substantive work and relaxing together, because the Daft hotel is equipped to facilitate both activities. An absolute must!

A passion.

I stayed 1 night in the DAFT Hotel, just before an event production.
Despite the exciting preparation, it was very nice to be there. In the evening, a glass by the fire with the organization and crew provided the nice relaxing note.
What Stijn and Tine do in and from Malmedy is to pursue their passion: music, hosting, organizing, ...
I can recommend them as a very accessible power couple supported by a hard-working team that is very creative and can distinguish themselves from other agencies.

Great location for both seminars and private stays

As an event organizer I am often looking for hidden gems, unique locations with event possibilities in a cozy setting.
When I discovered Daft hotel I immediately wanted to go there. After a private stay, I was 100% convinced and introduced it to my clients.
The setting, the comfort, good food, unique music studio, friendly and highly professional hosts ... the picture is just right.
Do not hesitate to organize your event there! Really recommended.
