We, my husband and I, stayed here for 3 nights in October 2012. First impressions - excellent. The reception staff were most welcoming, and bi-lingual, which was a relief! We had paid in advance, so they just took the card details for breakfasts, etc. The room was lovely, v. well decorated with a king-size bed, good-sized flat TV and well-equipped en suite shower. We went mad on the first night and ordered a bottle of wine from Room Service, it was very good and they were very quick to deliver. Found a fab 'Bouchon Lyonnais', Daniel et Denise, round the corner. The food was delicious and it was packed with French people. We ate there two nights running. Can't fault the room or staff at hotel. Breakfasts were slightly chaotic- we left our table to go and get some egg and bacon, and the staff cleared away our coffee, cutlery, napkins and juice?? Good selection of food tho, cereals, fruit, rolls, bread, yoghurts, ham, cheese, etc. Quite pricey at 17.50 euros each I thought. You have to eat a lot to get your money's worth. Apart from chaotic breakfast, the only other niggle I have is that the towels were quite not bath sheets, so were quite small. Neither of us is large, but even so it was a bit draughty! That is why I give it 4 stars, but I would stay there again without hesitation.
