Family road trip
Good family room - very clean and well appointed. Convenient for A2 road as a stop off en route to France. Great breakfast and really nice staff. Parking is right underneath the hotel - it’s a little difficult to find the entrance. I’d suggest you call the hotel in advance for directions.
