The Maison Gorey was rather tricky to find; it was not sign-posted and we ended up driving around the one way system twice before we decided to ask a passer-by for help. I would advise either print off instructions from airport to hotel before travelling, or take your TomTom!
First impressions? We have a parking space! Hotel was bigger than I thought it would be - with a retro-chic interior. Staff were very helpful in showing us to our room and pointing out the bar, restaurant and TV/Lounge room (which was stacked with VHS tapes!). Unfortunately, we didn't get to eat here, but the menu looked tasty.
On entering our room we were met with sweltering heat - only to realise that the heating was on! With it being 25oC PLUS outside we were slightly confused by this! My partner went downstairs to ask whether this could be turned off - he was told that the heating was only off between the hours of 6 and 9...very strange! Other things about the room: bathroom door didn't close properly and mattress felt like it was made of wood... TV was new and worked fine, lovely big dressing table, quite a powerful little hairdryer, room and bathroom were very clean and lots of space to hang up clothes, which was handy.
The hotel had a strange, quirky, retro feel to it that we both found amusing; we kept expecting Basil Fawlty to appear at our door! Cannot fault the friendliness of staff though, nor the cleanliness of the room. A good, reasonably priced hotel to stop over in.
