When I'd had a chance to meet Peig and chat with her, I was glad I had ignored the few negative comments I had read. She is a character, so some people who might perhaps expect a bland hotel-type employee might just not "get" her. We thought she was great, and our Canadian guests were intrigued to be staying in an ex-prison!
Luckily she had booted the two young German brothers who were also staying there, up the spiral stairs to those bedrooms, as she had a feeling we were a tad older and might prefer ground level rooms - how right she was! Next morning we had a nice chat with the boys, who didn't seem to have minded in the slightest.
She also suggested a place to eat in town, which was a good choice.
My husband declared her fried eggs a work of art, and her coffee even met his exacting standards.More
