It's good that our GWF Pal Eric Goossens and his wife Özlem have seen their great work at The Gallipoli Houses recognised again, this time in the Daily Saba


"We customize everyone's experience to their time and their budget and use many hotels on the peninsula," he said, adding that "some are exceptional like Eric and Özlem's Gallipoli Houses. You never know who you'll meet there, could be a famous hobbit like Sir Peter Jackson or any number of famous historians."

I have stayed yesterday at the Royal Hainaut at Valenciennes, it's a new 4 star hotel open since May 2019.

Very good, very nice, an impressive building and nice work after a 8 years restoration. The building was an hospital used in WW1 and until 2009. I have stayed in a certain number of hotels in France and Europe and this one is definitily on my top list. Everything is "magnifique", from the swimming pool to the bar and the rooms.
