... the operation. No complaints afterwards! Our band hosts provided dinner at a bistro just outside of Mons, with chicken, mushroom sauce, potato croquettes (a local specialty), and ratatouille - delicious!

Sure it is old and you might even say grubby but we found the central area interesting and the church between the hotel and the centrum is huge. We spent Friday evening exploring and walking around.
