I washed up (literally- it'd been raining a lot and I was on a rented motorbike) unannounced but even in my dishevelled state I was made very welcome and found a clean, functional, single room via the elevator on the third floor of this interesting conversion on the way out of town, with decent, off street parking. The room had a walk in wardrobe, shower/WC room, TV, hairdrier, mirror, towels, soap, desk, chest of drawers, comfortable enough bed and (a nice touch) its own balcony. What a nice surprise to then go down to the bar/restaurant area, featuring a wealth of interesting period features associated with its former use and find a terrace overlooking the banks of a tranquil river, rife with bird song and rowers, on which to soak up some welcome late afternoon sun and enjoy a couple of beers. Down side was that although I later ordered some food from what transpired was a pretty popular restaurant, I had to wait a whole hour for it to arrive- I had only asked for one course and there was no explanation or apology for the delay- black mark. Buffet breakfast especially good- the usual cold cuts spread with a reasonable hot offer too. B&B 52 Euros plus tax- very good value. I loved my beers on the tranquil terrace but would probably make other arrangements for evening meal if I ever visit again.
