How one small thing can change one’s perception. We were shown to our room overlooking the extensive grounds: decent-sized bedroom and bathroom as well as a terrace area with table and chairs outside. We could park the car just beside the room which was convenient. Had to ask about the free WiFi and after a brief hiatus it sprang into life. Dinner began well, with an excellent starter of “nougat” of foie gras – a picture on the plate and delicious. For a main course I chose filet de bœuf (à point). It came bien cuit, and it is a testimony to the quality of the meat that it was edible. However, it could have been superb, rather than simply edible. A crème brulée dessert was again, like the starter, excellent.
When we got back to the room I noticed the pelmet was hanging down on one of the curtain rails, a hook in the bathroom was wonky, the rather Ikea-like furniture not really up to four-star standard. That steak changed my perception of this place from “it’s fine” to “this is not really up to the standard one should expect at this price”
Breakfast, served by the beautiful pool was very good. There was plenty of choice and attentive service.
More attention to detail is needed, because this could be a nice hotel.
