We been going to Northern France every December and have stayed in a lot of good 'French' hotels but think this rates at the top of the list. A small hotel, nicely situated for a short walk into the centre of the nice town of Cambrai. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, going out of their way to ensure we had a good stay. The hotel is set in lovely grounds and must be ideal in the warmer months of the year. All the public areas are very pleasant and our large bedroom (we did upgrade for a small supplement) was well appointed, clean and warm, as was the bathroom.
We were there for three night and ate in the restaurant each night as the food was so good. Not cheap if you selected al a carte but there was Regional Menu also two other fixed price menus which were reasonable. The wine, quite pricy in bottles, was also available in pitchers and was very pleasant at a good price. There was one red by the bottle which was a normal 'hotel price'. One of the hotel employees found out that it was my birthday during our stay and i was presented with a beautiful cake with indoor fireworks at the end of our meal instead of the dessert we had ordered together with complimentary champagne. Boxes of chocolates on our pillows was the final thoughtful touch.
All in all, we can thoroughly recommend this hotel, something we don't do unless we are completely satisfied.
