The buffet breakfast is fantastic. In addition to serving fresh Belgian waffles each day, there’s a wide variety of bread, cereal, warm options, fresh fruit, cheeses, meats, yoghurt and more. The coffee was brewed to perfection and the bountiful array of freshly squeezed juices were delicious.

The spacious and stylish rooms are equipped with all the modern comforts you’d expect from a high-end hotel. And the long corridors with charming carpets gave it that old-world feel.
