Having read all the reviews before we went along on our KGB trip, I wholeheartedly agree with most of the other reviewers, so instead of focusing on the bad things- and let's face it, it's only the decor, so let's focus on the GREAT things!

If your looking for a four or five star hotel then this is possibly not for you, however if your looking for somewhere with great character, lovely staff and great food (heroic portions) then you'll love it.

I have given this review a 3 star "average" rating as it does ask what the rating of the property is. Personally I had a lovely two day stay with a friend at the Fronoleu Country Hotel & would go back.
