Was looking for a nightstop in Luxembourg en route to Germany and remembered this place from about 7 years ago. Was then very old fashioned but in a peaceful spot and we were wowed by the art nouveau houses in Mondorf les Bains.
This time the hotel still reflects the traditional French style rooms which have been updated but not to the usual upmarket style my eurojaded eyes are used to. Still it was all clean and perfectly acceptable. The highlight however was the evening meal as I had asked for demi pension after a long day on the road. All dishes were homemade and we started with courgette soup followed by ripe melon with plenty of the proper thick cut parma ham. My mains was a triumph- a small piece of white fish and a tiny ramekin of rice served with a vegetable timbale to die for. Tiny fresh carrots with green tops and what I think were white radish and very thinly sliced runner beans all done in a light buttery/wine sauce with red and green pepper corns. Dessert was iced lemon souffles with raspberry compote and a small serving of pineapple sorbet.
With VAT only 3% in Luxembourg we felt compelled to choose something from their excellent wine list and it was very good.
The hotel belongs to Relais au SIlence group but someone needs to tell the local rooks about this as they got a bit noisy late evening. Overall a great start to this year's holiday and if I have food as good as this every night I will be happy.
We paid €165 for room, dinner and breakfast. The breakfast was nothing special but the meal makes it a worthwhile return visit for me.
