Hostellerie le Roannay is very close to the Race Track at Spa Francorchamps. This is both a blessing (jolly handy) and a curse (guaranteed trade, therefore no need to solicit revisits).
I stayed with a few friends - a survey of our rooms showed that they ranged from tiny to enormous (I got the tiny one! - why is it always me?). All of our rooms were uniformally very "tired".
We went to the bar and I bought a round of drinks (lovely), a friend bought the next round (lovely) and we then realised that both he and I had been over-charged by 1 euro per drink. The two mistakes were both put down to a mathematical error and were quickly refunded.
When I went to check out a couple of days later, a similar extra 1 euro per drink error seemed to have been noticed by the (English)man in front of me, it was put down to a mathematical error and quickly refunded. It's probably worth diligently checking your bill, particularly if you are paying in English Euros as that seems to be where mathematical errors creep in.
The food at dinner was ok - which was disappointing as the management seemed to think that it would be truely exceptional - I'm guessing they don't get out much. What really let it down was the terrible service, the dated look of the restaurant and the raging heat in the room which left the ladies fanning themselves with menus and the gents growing red and perspiring.
Despite our pleas, the windows could absolutely not be opened and the elderly aircon could not be coaxed into any greater action.
In the mornings there was plenty of good coffee and nice orange juice. Entombed in clingfilm, the breakfast buffet reminded me of Granny's funeral - but Granny would have loved it, she liked her salami and emmental gently sweating.
Pluses - There is free Wifi and a Helipad (Though foolishly I had left both the laptop and the Bell Jet Ranger at home).
