A lovely welcome, with much needed cup of coffee, after negotiating the one way system and Place Verdun! Large room, ground floor with two single beds, overlooking the car parking courtyard. Very clean and modern bathroom, with power shower, well lit. A huge wardrobe, easy chairs and two chests of drawers. The dining room is rather small, breakfast excellent value. The hotel was full all week, including French families, happy to chat. Minutes from the market and shops, about ten walking to the old port and clock tower, where bars and restaurants stay open later than the old town. We reserved parking and were not charged. We had to leave at 5am for the airport and were given a jug of coffee each to see us on our way. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The building is beautiful and the staff really kind.
