Hotel Douglas Hotel Douglas Hotel Douglas

Hotel Douglas dit Scott, named after the family who bought it in 1643 and kept it until 1830. Reportedly previously wool dyeing business. Later owned by church factory Sint-Rumoldus until 1974.

In 1917 the estate was split into two buildings, with number 6 being radically altered and restored. According to a drawing by A. Van den Eynde, this part was no more than an entrance with behind it a courtyard bordered on three sides by a gallery, the fourth side being closed off by a blank wall. The courtyard was used as a circulation space and passage to the stables located in the southwestern part of the garden behind the entire complex.

Hotel Douglas dit Scott is located in the Sint-Jansparochie, a district that was the residence of the members of the Great Council of Mechelen in the 17th and 18th centuries. This also explains the rich finish of the building, which dates back to the 15th – 16th century. The annex, which dates back to the middle of the 16th century, has a ceiling with Renaissance grotesque decoration, which bear witness to the influence of Cornelis Floris and which is unique to the city of Mechelen and Brabant. In the 18th century the interior was adapted to the then prevailing fashion, of which beautiful paneling and stucco ceilings are still preserved.
