This was the fifth time, we had stayed here and as before, the owners and staff were as welcoming and helpful. I am a little over 2 meters tall so beds can present problems, particularly those with foot boards. On being shown our room, I realized the bed had a high foot board and would make sleeping difficult. Headed back to reception with the view of asking for another room, however before I reached there, Laurent one of the owners, saw me and before I could comment on the bed, said "the bed in your room it will be difficult for you, let me see what we can do" The result was another room with a bed more suited to me. This is the sought of service this hotel excels in. It is sited in a quiet area but with in easy walking distance of the shops/resturants and castle. Plus there is the very tasty jams to try with breakfast.
