I really can't seem to see what the others found to gush so effusively about. I always thought I was a rather upbeat reviewer.
We had booked one of their cheaper rooms, but because we changed dates only a more expensive superior room was available. When we got there it was an ok room, but I honestly thought, due to the changes, that we had still been allocated a cheaper room.
It was not that big. Yes, the furniture has old world charm, but not the character or style to warrant songs of praise. We definitely did not see the stylish and updated bathroom. Ours was cramped, dingy, and positively scruffy with a 1970s style suite.
Frankly we felt that the whole hotel could do with a good clean.
Carpets on stairs were drab and scruffy.
Some quaint old world charm throughout and not a bland hotel but I would not rave about it for these prices.
When I pointed out that I thought we may have got one of the cheaper rooms, the chap on the reception did not seem to know which room was at what price (there are only 9!) and said he would check - but we were charged the more expensive rate.
Breakfast was nice. One grumpy chap one morning at breakfast, but otherwise staff were helpful.
Very good location - easy walking distance to everything. Very central. Quiet.
I think the website is a bit misleading in terms of what you might get.
And the English speaking section of the website does not seem to have the links to the other pages that the french and neglish pages do.
