A good central location but this hotel needs refurbishment throughout. It's all a bit tatty and looks a bit dirty. The rooms and bathroom are very small. The bed was comfortable enough. Breakfast was included but is nothing special. A bit expensive for what it is.

Easy to find , park and book in. the room was warm but the water in the shower was tepid. a small but comfortable bar. all was fine until I was woken with loud noise from the reception at 5.00 am. It seems like four guys are trying to buy a room but it was not easy. an hour later...

This hotel is very dated. The carpets look very worn and the sound travels thru the walls. For Tournai downtown it is ok. Parking is very bad in Tournai, so I am not sure what they can do for you if you come by car.

We had booked into a cheap and cheerful 'hotel' across the square which was more like a hostel and could not bring ourselves to stay there. We tried another who could not accommodate us but recommended the Cathedrale. We had a nice clean double room in a comfortable hotel for only €8 more than the flea pit we had originally...

Hotel Cathédrale is not expensive. Unlike the breakfast (15,- euro's per person a day) with is remarkably good and complete though. the rooms and hotel interior are rather worn and outdated, disturbing elevator and ugly carpet and no airconditioning. Bigg plusses are the location, hotel exterior, free wi-fi, and the friendly and accommodating staff.

Great location for the centre of tournai 5 minutes walk to the main square and cathedral. The square outside has a nice Italian and irish bar. The canal runs just to the side of the hotel and the train station is 10 minutes walk away. Decoration on the old fashioned side but rooms clean and we had a good view...

Hotel is situated near the cathedral just out of the square and close to the canal, With plenty of bars and restaurants around. There is an underground Q car park close by about 10 euros for 24 hours but you would have to check. OK the hotel, we didnt have breakfast or a meal in the hotel so can't comment...

Stand outside this hotel and it looks lovely, on a square with the magnificent Cathedral at the top of the street. Then pass through the almost impossible doors to open with a case and prepare to be disappointed. Out of date shoddy rooms, peeling wall paper, unswept stairs and shocking water pressure. Like a huge step back in time. We...

This hotel is situated very near to the historically important cathedral, in a quiet square, close to the river in a World Heritage Site city.... It should be buzzing, lively and welcoming, and yet, it feels stuck in a time warp sometime around the 1980s, with dated clashing decor, old and dilapidated furniture in random places, crazy patterened carpets, smelly...

Booked for 3 nights. Stayed for 2. We had a box room, but they changed it. The whole place is desperately in need of refurbishment and modernisation. It's stuck in the 80's but not in a good way. It's a shame, as the building itself us very nice and we'll placed for the Cathédrale and main square.
