What a cute Hotel right in the heart of such a gorgeous village. The location is perfect with great shops, restaurants and quaint little bars, all walking distance. Buses also run nearby to other villages on the island.
On arrival at the desk we were greeted very well. We were offered cloths to wash our hands as well as a little canapé on arrival. This was the only Hotel I have ever stayed at in Europe that has offered refreshment (free & yummy) on "Check In" at the desk, and for that reason alone I have given an extra "star". The child was given a cute little plush toy that she loved. After a tiring days travel it was all very welcome and we thank you for considering your clients needs so nicely.
The room we had was right up the top floor with a lovely window overlooking the square. The window opens right up without any barriers so not at all good if you were to have very young children as is is a 3 story easy fall out, but for us no problem, we loved the view. The day we arrived the room was spotless. It was too cramped with an uncomfortable fold out bed right at the doorway for our child, it made getting into the very small bathroom difficult. No blanket was on the bed as it was Summer but a cool change came in and ended up too cold. Spare blankets in the cupboard would be a good idea. The bathroom, although very small was clean for our first two nights stay. Our 3rd day it was not, maybe we were going to be leaving the next day so they didn't bother to clean it so nicely.
The beds were not very comfortable and the pillows were like sleeping on slabs of concrete which made a not so pleasant sleep. But on letting the staff know they said they would look into improving this. No tea & coffee making facilities or bar fridge were in the room.
The breakfast dining room is very nice with a very pleasant outlook. The selection of food was quite good. The scrambled eggs must have been popular as everyday they were running out. and it was fresh. The cakes were too good and made my waist line thicken so be warned!
Booking was easy with great communication from the Hotel, prompt and courteous.
Overall I would stay here again if ever we are lucky enough to ever return to this amazing country. But I would request a bigger room if we had 3 guests and bigger bathroom (if they have any). And softer bed and pillows!
And it was quite expensive compared to others we have stayed, I think for what (is not included) the rates could be a bit be lower.
