We didn’t book through any of the discount booking sites but emailed directly with the hotel. After reading other reviews we didn’t want to book a room with too many stairs because of an old injury. Our initial enquiries were replied to promptly and clearly and we secured a canal view room on the first floor.
If you can handle the stairs, a room higher up could be just as good or even have a better view. Our hostess Nathalie was very strong and insisted on carrying suitcases and bags up the stairs for everyone.
We were lucky enough to be given an upgrade to the deluxe canal view room and it was fabulous. Huge with a great view and opening windows. Bathroom with a shower over the bath. The king size bed was two singles pushed together. Very quiet room – we were directly above the breakfast room and beside the stairs but didn’t hear a thing. The curtains really blocked out the early sunrises too. The small canal room was pretty small so we were very glad of the upgrade. Free wifi.
There was a huge choice for breakfast – cereals, meats, breads, juices and cooked – either eggs or pancakes. Nathalie is the pancake doctor and whips up a variety of her secret recipe each morning on request.
We stayed 2 nights and would stay here again. Location was great too.
