Skindles Hotel

The Skindles Hotel has a rich history. The classicist mansion from the 18th century in the Gasthuisstraat 57, was the residence of the family Renynghe Voxvrie. In the pediment depicts the hunting goddess Diana.

During and after World War I the Skindles Hotel was named for a British club, accessible only for officers, which was originally located in the same street as ‘La Bourse Du Houblon’. When the club moved to no. 57, moved the name with it. The interior is dominated by Louis XV -and Louis XVI – style elements.
