We booked this hotel for two nights during a road trip across Europe. The hotel is located 15 minutes outside the Centre. There is quite a long walk to the lift which takes you down to the tramway, but as I was suffering from a leg injury, we used our car to drive into town and park. We never found a problem parking even though the centre is pedestrianized.
We arrived to a torrential downpour and were taken to the rear conservatory for a free welcome drink and to wait for the rain to stop so that they could bring in our bags from the car.
Whilst sitting there, there was an enormous crash of thunder and lightning, and the receptionist came in a few minutes later to tell us that the lightning had actually hit the building and that among other thing the lifts had stopped working.
We were shown to our room which was on the fifth floor and unfortunately had a view of the car park. I told the receptionist that I wasn't really "knocked out" by the view.
A little later, with the lifts still not working, we made our way down to reception where we were greeted by the manager, who apologized about our room and said that in view of the problems with the lift, they were moving us to a second floor suite. Lovely.
Breakfast was very 5 star, if a little too posh for my liking. Free parking and Wifi.
If you like traditional chataeu style hotels, you will love this place. The staff couldn’t be more helpful. True 5 star.
