We stayed this year for my 30th, spent ages going through Expedia, last minute etc looking for a nice hotel, when my other half noticed this one on Expedia.
Pretty good rate for hotel and Eurostar combined, and excellent communications via email in advance, we spoke to Fiora who was fluent in English and even offered to help us with our French on arrival!
When we arrived, the staff on the desk were extremely welcoming and helpful, and although we were early, managed to ensure our room was ready, and took us straight up. Checked we were ok, then left us to it. Shortly after, we had a knock at our door, and to my surprise, my other half had arranged a bottle of bubbly for my birthday! Along with a lovely note from the staff wishing us a nice journey.
The room itself was small (as mentioned on their website) but well laid out, and the shower (we went for the shower room as opposed to bath) was AMAZING! We even had a little balcony!
We had breakfast the second day, a 'cold' breakfast, of pastries, meats, cheeses, fruit, yoghurt and bread! Along with mega coffee!!
The staff were knowledgable about good places to eat, and if you choose to stay here, try MM's cafe just round the corner (left from the hotel, to the end of the road, and it's on the corner on the right more on that in another review!) and the cocktail bar at the end of the road (Lounge Royal, again, another review to follow!)
In a nutshell, would definitely return, but the only issue we had was with the bed, not the most comfortable as it seemed to slope to one side, however when we swapped sides, I managed a decent night's sleep in comparison to the first couple.
An excellent hotel all round, but if you are going for a long stay, go for a bigger room, the biggest was twice the size of ours, as there is very little room to store clothing in the smaller basic rooms.
