I have stayed here on numerous occasions before. I like to go back here for the excellent professional service, delicious food and the great view of all that comes and goes along the river.
This last visit was only for one night. I arrived early so that I could enjoy lunch in the Brasserie.
I enjoyed a very seasonal looking plate of risotto with fillets of fish, chestnuts and spinach which was really good and served by a smiling, friendly waiter.
After lunch I was shown to my room which was exactly as I had hoped and requested, on the top floor and with a bath. The single rooms are quite small but perfectly formed. I do almost always have to ask for a comfy chair to sit in as I do not fancy spending the evening sat upright at a desk chair but this never seems a problem.
I like the top floor with its tiny balcony because it is has a wonderful view up and down the river. The bed linen is of the highest quality and I had a great night's sleep. The air conditioning works well and quietly if so required.
One thing I cannot understand is the change from Molton Brown toiletries to some from Feuerstein which to me smell like disinfectant.
I normally detest buffet breakfasts but have to admit that this one is very good and thankfully the hot dishes are prepared to order and mine was beautifully presented.
The jams are the best bit, quite delicious and I was given a jar to take home after paying the bill.
I would always check the bill closely as once I was charged for two bottles of champagne here instead of two glasses. This time the amount was just about to go through in the thousands of francs instead of the hundreds for the one night stay. The receptionist had put the decimal point in the wrong place. I was surprised that I did not receive an apology but rather a look as if I had done something wrong.
However this did not spoil another special treat in a well run and immaculately clean hotel.
