We have just returned from a brief stay at Locanda Matir, and whilst this small, comfortable hotel benefits from a great location in the city's university district, and tidy, characterful rooms - it is let down by an uptight management and desperately poor 'breakfast'.
Upon arrival, we were informed that breakfast was to be served beween the hours of 08.30 and 09.30am. Although this seemed a tight window, we dutifully reported the following morning - eager to take advantage of the 'included' bonus that was breakfast.
Unfortunately, what awaited us was hugely disappointing.
We were not naive enough to expect an al a carte feast, nor a bountiful spread of locally sourced delights. We did however hope for something vaguely edible and of reasonably recent origin. Sadly, what we got was a selection of out of date biscuits, a 5 day old (a generous guess) cherry tart, and 3 pear halves swimming in a sickly sweet gloop - washed down with coffee that can best be described as 'anaemic'.
This in itself is not reason to be upset - we soon found solace in a nearby cafe - however, we did resolve to give breakfast a miss the following morning, in favour of a well-earned lie-in. However, on surfacing (at around 10.30am), we were rather abruptly rebuked for having missed breakfast that morning!
Shame, as in all other respects, this hotel is a good find - and the staff were accomodating of our request for a room away from the noisy street noise (one side of hotel looks out onto busy student bar).
Just a word of warning then re breakfast and for those who decide not to get up in time to sample it... shame on you :)
