We chanced upon Le Foch a few years ago from its "Logis de France" accreditation. We've stayed several times since and never been disappointed,
Cassel is a lovely Flemish town and handy for ferry terminals at Calais and Dunkerque. It's a hill-top town and the Grande Place has loads of character and several cafes, bars and restaurants as well as other tourist attractions.
If you are looking for clinical perfection in the modern formulaic sense, this might not be for you. If you are looking for an excellent small hotel that is France, then Le Foch will be perfect.
Nathalie and Luc run the business to high standards and they sure look after you well. Bedrooms vary in style and are attractive. There are all the standard comforts and free wifi.
The restaurant is superb, even by French standards, and good value. Mostly local cuisine prepared and presented exquisitely in a relaxing atmosphere.
Are there downsides? Rooms at the front can suffer from road noise from the cobbled Grande Place. Disabled access bedrooms upstairs may not be easy. There is no private parking but we have always managed to park very close (less than 15m) for free in the Grande Place.
This is very individual Hotel that tries very hard to please, and succeeds, in my opinion. But if you like every hotel room in every hotel to look the sane, stick with Travelodge (et al)! We will return.
