This hotel is at a very convenient location, virtually across the street, from the train station in Beauvais. And since the airport shuttle stops outside the train station it offers a real convenient
way to get to the airport. Le Chenal has been around for a long time, and it shows. Our room was nicely painted, the decoration was pleasing and the bed was comfortable. There was a bit of a problem with the sink faucet which seemed to have needed a washer or something, as well as with the bathtub faucet. There was a kind of a balcony with a door that could be opened to allow viewing the street standing from above. Breakfast is available on-site, and drinks are served at the bar. We had experienced a dimly lit hallway on the floor to our room, but was most concerned over the fact that the hallway was totally dark, when we started to leave early next morning for the airport. We stumbled through the dark and just by chance felt around the wall near the elevator to find a light-switch; but this was, of course, only after taking many steps in the dark. The downtown area is only about a 10-minute walk, where one can find an array of restaurants, bars and pasteries shops. A little farther walk gets one to the Cathedral of Saint Peter which I think was built in the 13th Century. It has seven named chapels, plus two, and there is a memorial for the one million soldiers of the British Commonwealth, and 400-plus Frenchmen who died in the last world war. The church is in a state of disrepair but efforts are being made to restore it to an earlier time condition. It is well worth a visit. All in all I'd stay at this hotel again for it's convenience to train and airport shuttle.
