Kasteel Elsloo - Michelin rated hotel.

Kasteel Elsloo, near Maastricht

Monday and Tuesday nights, I stayed at that Kasteel Elsloo, near Maastricht in the Netherlands where I'm working this week (Tcl/Tk. A beautiful place, with a superb restaurant; couldn't fault the food, service exquisite, pricing ridiculously reasonable.

So I would stay there again if I was here on business again, then? Regrettably, I would have to give it a second and third thought. I woke up this morning ... with the wireless internet out. At 7 went down to ask. "We don't know. Can't help. Ask reception where there will be someone at 7:30". So I stand in the checking line at 7:30 and I'm told - "Oh yes - we know all about that. Sometimes unplugging and replugging the box sorts it out, but we've already tried that". A further enquiry told me this is a regular problem, and that it wasn't being fixed as a matter of urgency.

It shows how criticial to us internet access is ... I couldn't risk it again on a business future trip (as it happens, they're full tonight, so perhaps don't need my business anyway!) but I might well stop there again on a leisure trip. Oh that fooood!

I'm in the Mercure at Maastricht / Aachen Airport tonight. Looks (frankly) dreadful from the outside. More expensive. But less haughty more friendly staff, I'm online ... and I'm not negotiating car loads of equipment over cobbled streets and gravelled car parks.
