Beggers can't be choosers...
Posted Jul 8, 2013
Look elsewhere, but if the town is full, as at Festival time, beggars can't be choosers... Let's get this clear, the Hotel Esplanade is part of a group of five Hotels in KV, The Mozart, Esplanades 1, and 2, The Elefant, and the main Hotel Jesssenius. So when you arrive at the door, you see a sign redirecting you 100 metres to the aforementioned Jessenius to check in and collect your key. So far so rather annoying but there we are. The room we had during the Film Festival, was one of the last available in KV, and so quite expensive at £100.00, and although small and decorated in a style reminiscent of a British Midlands commercial hotel circa 1980, it was clean, and the shower room was satisfactory. There was an old CRT TV that didn’t work very well, a fridge that seemed never to have worked at all, but the sheets were pristine, and the beds, two singles pushed together were firm.
Breakfast was up the road at the Jessenius, and was a good sized buffet, served in a pleasant room on the first floor. The staff were polite and quite helpful. There is a small adjacent lounge with a weighing machine...and a pool table, oh and a grand piano.
