We were 5 five friends and stayed at the hotel for 1 night only.
Location is good. Staff were friendly. Service and the facilities are also fine.
I would recommend this to anyone. Tariff was reasonable.

... museum & stumbled upon a unique way of displaying our love with wax. We had our hands sculpted in silicon wax & coloured off course after it. It was fun with my companion who was relaxed & not concerned about the people around, trying as much as possible to make the entire trip fun.

The manager, or maybe he's the owner, met us in the courtyard. He speaks as much English as we speak French so checking in and getting the basic meal ...
... and mulled wine to warm us up!
Sufficiently warmed up, we head into the town centre to look around the Christmas Markets - a lot of the stalls are similar to the ones in Brussels but they are still interesting to look at.

There is a stall selling Belgian waffles which we obviously have to sample and they taste amazing!! ...
