When we went to Spa back in 2011 we decided to stay here.
The site itself is just up the hill from Spa (the town) and not too far to walk to if you travel there by train as we did. No complaints about the site at all. There was a shuttle bus to the track on Fri-Sun and the owners were happy to organise a taxi for us on the Thursday for the pit walk.
The town of Spa is an excellent place to spend a few days after the race and the actual Spa is ideal for repairing the damage done by walking up and down Eau Rouge for three days!
I ran into Tiff Needell (or rather, he ran into me) when I was leaving the Autosport show a couple of years back. I heard a shout from behind of “gang way!” and then got lightly brushed aside as he rushed past. He said he would sign an autograph if I was able to keep up with him (he was striding along a travolator, I was jogging alongside), which I just about managed!
Also had a quick chat with the mighty Alex Yoong at Silverstone last year when Renault World Series was in town. He was very patient and waited for me to retrieve my missus who had disappeared down the pitlane with my camera.
