Rocco Forte Hotels

“The last time I went to Brussels was during Christmas; it was very cold but there was bright sunshine. We walked around the Grand Place, where I admired the beautiful houses and the town hall – there was even a horse and carriage! As soon as we got back to Hotel Amigo, we enjoyed a delicious hot chocolate and lots of heavenly cakes. My favourite festive cookie is definitely Speculoos, because they are full of cinnamon and Christmassy spices.

Hotel Amigo is my favourite place to be at Christmas because it has the most beautiful Christmas decorations, lovely flowers and gifts for children. This year, I was given a stuffed owl that I named Snowy.

I particularly enjoy the breakfast at Amigo; it feels like a royal palace with so many delicious foods to choose from and there is even a special children’s table where you can discover the adventures of Tintin. When I’m older, I would like to work in a hotel just like Hotel Amigo because I always have so much fun when I stay there. I love playing with everything in my room and all the special activities for children. Hotel Amigo is a magical place, and everyone there is so nice and friendly – I always feel like a princess!”
