I have on numerous occassions stayed in this hotel, en route to Eastern Europe, or returning to the UK. This is just a convenience hotel, surrounded with typical french culture and resturants/ bars around its traditional square.

We had completed 279 miles from home to Arras, in France. Sixty nine miles from Calais to Arras was the most enjoyable, with spacious motorways cutting through farming fields during the harvest season.

A brief 5 minute drive further north brought us to the town of Roclincourt where Hugh Sharpe is buried. He is a far ...

The usual routine this morning, up early, cleared out the breakfast buffet and on the road by about 08:30. The old town at Laon sits atop a monster hill which Steve, Clive and I had climbed the previous evening, so, as our hotel was at the lower level, we skirted around the old town without climbing ...
