I booked this hotel having researched its proximity to the station, which was a prioty as it saves time on arrival and especially on departure.on the Monday morning a group of four of us were travelling from London on Eurostar.
Our trains were late from Brussels, it was a bank holiday, don't know if that had anything to do with it but imagine our delight when we stepped out of the station and there it was across the road.
The hotel created a good impression from the start so much so, that we decided we would eat in the rather than explore as the hour was getting late. The meal did not disappoint, and a two course dinner was perfectly satisfactory in quantity and the quality was equal to any restaurant.
We then had a very pleasant evening at the bar which was cosy and comfortable and reasonably priced, similar to most of the local bars.
The breakfast choices were better than I have had in most European hotels and there was the added bonus of freshly cooked eggs to accompany your bacon and sausages if that was your choice.
The hotel is a pleasant ten minute walk to the town centre, across a picturesque bridge. Plenty of shops bars and restaurants to choose from in the town centre, one is definitely spoilt for choice.
In spite of the cold and wet November weather our visit was not spoilt, as there was plenty to see under cover, museums, galleries and the like and the service in all was particularly cheerful and friendly.
One little niggle was that we were charged three different prices each night we stayed but overall the hotel was the icing on the cake.
