Doves from Steenvoorde ...

Top preparations start with top products. It's that simple.

We also work with regional products as much as possible. One condition, however, is that the quality must be really top notch. For the pigeon preparations in our gastronomic restaurant, currently in our Valentine's menu for example, we work together with "Pigeonneau des Flandres", say Maison Dequidt from Steenvoorde in French Flanders ( Flandre Pigeonneau ).

These northern French pigeons are prepared in a special way for the chef and are juicier than what is normally available at the market.

The choice is then quickly made. "Foodies know why, then," he says. 😉

A breakfast buffet in a room to say "U" to....

Every day, Antoinette and hostess Kristine are ready to serve you and your party a sumptuous breakfast with quality products (including smoked salmon, cava, ...).

By the way, did you know that they do this annually for more than 5,000 guests? So they know their way around! Even with such monster numbers, everything always remains calm and convivial, which is what you expect from a breakfast. 😉

And that with a very beautiful and unique view of the Franco-Flemish plain. Our fireplace is also a plus. When the weather is nice, we also serve on the panoramic terrace! On a number of large frames, say Tv's, the breakfast guests also get to see the most beautiful pictures of Flanders ( forwarded via our website www.top.vlaanderen ).

Breakfast is served between 8h and 10h 30 in the totally renovated lounge of Hostellerie Mont Kemmel **** .

Non-hotel guests also make regular reservations with us. Just book via our website. Larger groups can have a separate room if desired.

Hostellerie Mont Kemmel achieves Green Key once again

This year GoodPlanet Belgium and Tourism Flanders welcomed 24 new Green Key locations, the largest number of newcomers ever. Yesterday, the Green Key holders for 2023 were announced and the certificates were awarded at BluePoint Antwerp. By 2023, a total of 168 Flemish entrepreneurs will be proud holders of the Green Key label. Hostellerie Mont Kemmel **** earned this International Environmental Award "Green Key" again for the ninth year in a row (the first time was in 2015).  

"As a panorama hotel and gourmet restaurant, we feel it is important to ask an independent party to check our green measures against current standards in a regular and objective manner. Not only blah-blah is needed for the environment, but also concrete and effective actions. We see the annual achievement of the international eco-label "The Green Key" as a crowning achievement of our efforts in this regard." said ing. Philippe Vercoutter, hotel manager of Hostellerie Mont Kemmel **** .

One of the practical consequences of obtaining the Green Key is that all hotel and restaurant guests of Hostellerie Mont Kemmel **** can always pay their bill with Belgian eco-vouchers (such as those from Sodexo and EdenRed, for example). Very few hospitality businesses can offer this unique payment facility to their clientele.

Mosaic of possibilities with the experience table at Mont Kemmel

Earlier this week, the completely renewed salon at Hostellerie Mont Kemmel **** was presented to the general public. The space was completely gutted and equipped with panoramic designer sliding windows, acoustic and thermal insulation but also with a lot of technical gadgets: thematic lighting, various signage monitors (frames), state-of-the-art music system, etc. . What immediately stands out about this thoughtfully renovated space is the centrally located experience table. This table both displays images, produces audio, diffuses scents and mist. So it can influence many of the guest's senses. This hospitality innovation project runs under the working title "Moods & Foods".

Below is an overview of various settings of this experience table in the salon of Hostellerie Mont Kemmel ****. Today all still in test mode, soon fully in production. Guests currently taking breakfast at the hotel can already have their first experiences with this multi-sensory table: beautiful images are invariably projected and the lighting above the table follows the colors of these images.

This project came about in part through grants from the Province of West Flanders / Westtoer.

Successful New Year's Eve party

It was another successful New Year's Eve party at Hostellerie Mont Kemmel ****: stylish and sparkling. Some photographic impressions of this memorable evening 31/12/2022. The Belgian pianist & composer Daniël Verstappen gave a tasteful guest performance including songs from his "Reconnection" tour. Some sixty guests experienced this exceptional event: a refined gastronomic dinner (with champagne à volonté, scallops, lobster, venison, etc.), tuneful musical setting, 2023 countdown in the lobby (with confetti cannons), and so on. Hostellerie Mont Kemmel **** was, of course, completely dressed in an exceptional Christmas and winter atmosphere for the occasion. The table decoration was again beautiful as well as luxurious (Bernardaud plates, silver Christofle Spatours cutlery, etc.).

In short, exactly what our esteemed guests also expect from us: a successful New Year's Eve party!

Tip: Do you also want to be there on Sunday 31/12/2023? Send us a message now ( for example via our contact form ) so that we can keep you informed. The number of participants is limited, so be there on time is the message.

Furthermore, we were also able to get these nice cell phone shots....

Winter scenes at sunrise on Kemmelberg

We just experienced a winter spike on Mount Kemmel. Temperatures dropped to -6°C. Not a record for us (after all, in 2013 we went down to -13°C) but what beautiful scenes it produced! Here are some pictures of these winter conditions at sunrise on our idyllic Kemmelberg... What a winter atmosphere!

Stay overnight at our hotel and you may also witness these beautiful sunrises.
Tip: book a room on the valley side. There are also 8 rooms with balconies directly overlooking this phenomenal panorama.

Celebrate New Year's Eve with pianist Daniel Verstappen

Special news! Loyal guests of the New Year's Eve dinner at Hostellerie Mont Kemmel **** already know: we always provide a special gift on this special night. This year it is none other than pianist Daniël Verstappen that we are going to have as our guest.

Daniel Verstappen is a Belgian-international "crossover" pianist & composer. In his music he combines classical with modern and electronic sounds. Early this year he was invited to perform twice at the World Expo in Dubai, in the presence of our King & Queen and is touring internationally with his performance "Reconnection". The tour has already visited several European capitals and soon he will tour Sweden and the USA (including Carnegie Hall in New York). He has already performed with Andrea Bocelli, Ennio Morricone, Hans Zimmer, The Night Of The Proms, Brussels Philharmonic and many others.

We are therefore very pleased to have Daniel as our guest. He will give us a guest performance of some of his compositions from his album "Reconnection" and, of course, also play some classics leading up to a splashy passage of the year.


We still have a few spots available for this New Year's Eve party. Please respond now while there are still a few spots. Send an e-mail to info@montkemmel.be or use our contact form. We will contact you as soon as possible. Price for drinks and food together: 200 €/pp. We still have a few rooms left. These can also be booked in addition.

Behold the degustation menu that will be served. As drinks, only classy champagnes, white and red wines will be presented. At midnight there will be a champagne-à-volonté moment.
