For the history of The Mansion we go back to the 19th century. The land was originally bought by Hippolyte Leopold Heughebaert in 1892. He commissioned the architect Masereel to build a house for his family: The Mansion.
The building is erected in neoclassical style. You notice this immediately on the facade and in the hall with the dramatic support beams and details. The details on the walls and ceilings were only added after Hippolyte's death by the new owners. The building was then embellished with wall and ceiling paintings. These are still in their original state and show many important art forms.
Staying at The Mansion, you will enjoy modern 5-star hotel comfort perfectly integrated in an original historical setting. We bet you will feel like a prince or princess!.
The Mansion welcomes you for a romantic weekend in Ghent.
