The European/continental breakfast was plentiful; fresh fruits, an assortment of breads and croissants, yogurts, cheeses, cold meats, fruit juices; boiled eggs and coffee to order (American, latte, espresso); definitely will hold you over to lunch
At checkout the receptionist said the online reservation had the wrong rate for the room and she adjusted the bill (I hadn’t know the difference-a small saving but nevertheless a savings); enjoyed my stay in this solid family-run hotel; I will use this hotel again without hesitation and recommend it to family and friends.
