    Very nice not to big hotel, a warm welcome in this beautiful building with history. Room and breakfast was excellent. Walking distance from the center (20 min.) makes this a good location for city visits. We will go here again !

    Just outside the historical center, a short walk from the Cathedral, situated in a beautiful mansion. The Hancelot building comes with charm, and so does the staff. Kind and very attentive. Excellent breakfast serving, abundant. The room may us feel 'burghers' from way back.

    I just booked a room. Can I see pics of the gym or, at last, a description of the equipment? It's very important and otherwise I'd rather cancel the booking
