Nice quiet rooms

Houton Baylodge is situated at the seaside next to a ferry terminal.

The rooms are very quiet and you have a nice view over the sea. The secure Wi-Fi does not really work in the room, you have to sit in the lounge to connect yourself, but there is an open one available within the room. There is no cooked breakfast, but there are wonderful fresh fruit and different sorts of yogurt and cereals or porridge. There are also cold cuts, cheese and crabs/fish. However, you have to be in the breakfast room quite early to have the complete choice and the way of presenting the food (under clingwrap or in packages) was a bit unfamiliar to us. Apart from toast there are little cakes, pains au chocolat, etc. All in all you have a great choice for breakfast.

Best hotel in Houton

Ok, the only hotel.

But great. Woman behind the desk just got her archeology degree. A wealth of information. Very friendly. Downside: no restaurant. Wifi spotty but no worse than the rest of Britain and we've been all over
