The room wasn't impressive, but very comfortable and quite, the service was excellent, and breakfast - too good. Only had one lunch at "Le Poisson" there, that was surprisingly good too. Highly...

contacted the hotel directly via e-mail (not through a booking site) - got a quick, genial, and detailed response. Warm welcoming with bar drinks on the house and complimentry mini bar refilled every day, good breakfast (and cappuccino) and nice clean rooms. The location is fantastic. Definitely a 5/5.
