This was my only stay in a B&B on a 7 night business trip all over Netherlands but this place stood out when I was looking for somewhere on the way back to the tunnel at Calais.
When I pulled up, Pascale came to the door to greet me and we were into deep conversation straight away, this was lovely after a week alone in soul-less hotels.
Showed me to the fabulous room, really tastefully decorated, comfortable bed, immaculate bathroom, coffee machine, fridge full of drinks, absolutely brilliant and with more of a homely feel than a hotel.
Pascale showed me her table in the hall full of business cards and leaflets for all the things to do in the area, all the best restaurants etc. Real care had gone into every aspect of making you feel welcome and helping you get the most from your stay, shame it was a rotten snowy night and I was just passing through as the area around there looked wonderful.
I had a comfortable peaceful night. Breakfast is served in her own lovely big kitchen and there's plenty of assortment. The best scrambled eggs I've had in a very long time, not the usual dried muck you get in hotels! Even had little chocolate truffles with the coffee.
We chatted for about an hour about various things over breakfast, I could have chatted all day. Pascale is quite simply a lovely personable lady who has got it absolutely right.
There is no doubt I'll stay again, hopefully with a more relaxed agenda.
I heartily recommend to all!
