i had booked a petite double for 2 nights. it was so petite that even the electric kettle looked huge (nowhere to plug it in without furniture removal to reveal electric socket at head of bed). the room overlooked an inner courtyard which was used by people using the bar and restaurant. the noise was deafening and certainly not reduced at 10 p.m. as promised in information file. there was no hot water at all. i was moved to another room at the front of the building. this had hot water and was quieter due to double glazing. however it was very hot since if i raised the double glazing to open the windows i was disturbed by traffic in the main street outside.
i was then informed that the next day i would have to return to my original room as the one i had been moved to had been booked. when i returned to the petite double there was no cold water - warm water even came from the cold tap.
breakfast on my last morning left a lot to be desired. there was only one waitress who was doing her best. the breakfast table had not been replenished, there was no cutlery and no papers. most tables had not been cleared. i waited half an hour for one piece of toast with a poached egg. then suddenly at 10 a.m. everything kicked off with 3 people clacking back and forth clearing tables (why not use trays?).
all the above aside, i have no complaint about the food - the dinner we had on our first night was delicious - but everything else was a great disappointment..
