Hostess Tine Slosse studied history of art , poetry and drama . She worked several years for television and teaches wordclass.
She has been the manager of The Welcome House for over 10 years .
She values a personal welcome, as to make her guests feel right at home. “After all, this is the philosophy behind a b&b, I deliberately decided to keep the b&b small.“
The mansion, located in the Kleine Beerstraat , was built at the end of the 19th century . The magnificent ornaments at the front of the house immediately catch the eye. For example , the pineapples symbolise wealth and prosperity.
In the frontroom , called ‘my creamcake’ by Tine , we spot original paintings that represent paradise, wreathed with garlands and flowers. The putti figures make the entire scene even more lively.
In the hall and the kitchen, there are colourfuultiled floors, enamelled wall tiles decorating the kitchen, you have the cut glass and mirrors, the brass work, the marble,…All these elements convinced Tine to buy the property in 2001.
“ Searching for a house, I saw many mansions in this area, most of them were already renovated, but not always in a respectful manner. This house , on the other hand, was still in its authentic state and that was the deciding factor. Upon reading the contract, I noticed the previous owners had bought the mansion in 1956, which happens to be my year of birth, so I knew it for sure : this is going to be my house!”
