I was eager to try this hotel because of its location right on the promenade and away from the crowds, and because of the charm of its building. But I was disappointed in the furnishings and décor of the room and with some of the facilities.
I stayed here on a trip with my mother, and we splurged for the big double room with the big terrace overlooking the restaurant and the lake. Well, that was a big mistake as the noise and chatter from the diners below kept us awake until past midnight. If you stay here in the summer, be sure to get a room off to the side!
The room’s furnishings are in bamboo and bright fabrics, which doesn’t seem to fit the house or the area. The fabrics also look a bit worn. In the bathroom, the huge bathtub is set squarely in the middle of the room, flanked by a dramatic palm tree, but the steps up to the tub get too slippery too easily, and the towel rack is too far away to reach. It’s clearly not set up for convenience . . .
I also wish there was a regular bar or lounge on the property. When I asked for a glass of wine, the staff cheerfully set out a glass and a chair for me, but I wasn’t comfortable.
