Suggestions for places to stay near Chimay, Belgium?

Its less than a month until I leave on my tour of France, Luxembourg, Belgium, and Holland. I pretty much have all of the logistics buttoned up, except finding an affordable place to stay within 20 km of Chimay. So this goes out to all of you with experience touring along the northern border of France, do you know of any places either in the immediate area of Chimay or between Chimay and Lille, France that I should check out. Thanks.

There is a campsite pretty much a stone's throw away from the centre of Chimay, that's where I stayed last year. It was clean, quiet and
pretty cheap too.

Chimay - Froidchapelle - Beaumont - Thuin - Lobbes

Not exactly a place to stay but a brand new reconverted railway track of 44 km between Chimay and Thuin: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...-railway-track

Some bed-and-breakfasts in and near Chimay but without prices ;-(

Just gotta throw it out there.

Stay on a farm in a comfortable room for about 15 euros. In france, but only 1km across the border. Anyway you will have to ride that way to get to the Auberge de Poteaupre to drink some fine chimay beers for extremely cheap.
