As already mentioned… 6 of us headed into Luxembourg last weekend to explore the Christmas markets!
Armed with my trusty pc and the ever popular booking.com website … I managed to do a little research on spa related hotels in the area and noticed that the Légére Hotel Luxembourghad received some nice ratings on booking.com as well as on Tripadviser (although the later did highlight that it was not in Luxembourg itself but in a little town called Munsbach on the outskirts of Luxembourg – a mere 15minute drive away).
Offering spa facilities, free wifi and free mini-bar… plus our room package included breakfast – it seemed like the perfect choice! However 2 items to note is that the booking.com confirmation states an address that does not exist in most GPS systems… and we had to phone to ask for directions. And although they claim spa facilities – it is essentially a sauna… as there is only 1 massage therapist available (we wanted to book for all 6 of us to have a massage – but were told that they would have to be done one after each other… and none of us was in the mood to wait 6hours :)).
Having said this – the rooms were clean, modern (the glass wall between the shower/bath and the bedroom had us all giggling – as you really need to be comfortable with the person you are sharing a room with!) – they offer Ritual bath products in each of the rooms (they forgot to add them to ours, but once mentioned, it was quickly added by housekeeping).
But the real prize of this place is the restaurant!
We had the most amazing meal there. It wasn’t particularly full on a Saturday night (probably because the hotel is situated outside of the city and within an industrial/office park – which is probably packed during the week with business folk).
I wish I had taken a photo of the wine – because it was delicious… smooth and heavy without being overpowering! And went beautifully with all of our food choices!
M and I opted for the (made for 2ppl) Irish Angus steak with whiskey butter… served with crispy, tasty vegetables and the most velvety potato mash you have ever encountered! YUM
Mr Draper, Loulie and Sarah ordered the Caesar salad (although they did find the number of anchovies on the high side – they all agreed that they would have ordered it again).
HIM decided upon the Chicken with coconut milk – also served with the vegetables and mash that the steak had!
And finally – no meal is complete for HIM if he doesn’t have some dessert – and he shared a Caramel Fondant with M…
The presentation of all the dishes was amazing… the prices not cheap but definitely worth it. And the Taste… oh wow… it was all brilliant!
Would I go back? I would definitely be tempted to order from this restaurant again!
