The hotel looks really lovely from the outside. We were put in a room in the old wing at first but asked to be moved as it was a bit shabby. The new room was ok but again, tired furniture. The bathroom needed clean behind the door, hair and dirty tiles. Only one shower product for 2 people, no complimentry shampoo etc. The bar was not an "inviting" place to have an aperitif, quite dismal.
Breakfast was good, very nice waitress, pleasant and helpful. It could be a nice hotel, but in my opinion needs an upgrade.
