My husband and I are back from another lovely 6-night stay at St. Raphael - we love staying there and Zoe and Dom (and dear Milo) are always great to us.
The fresh-baked bread each morning is a delight, as is the freshly cooked breakfast.
I understand the comments about noise - fellow guests when we stayed did make quite a bit of noise over 2 nights - not thinking about other guests trying to sleep - whereas my husband and I were careful to be quiet when we got up early, as we had long drives on a couple of ocassions.
The red-bay parking (which costs Zoe and Dom an arm and a leg), guaranteeing car parking is an absolute boon for a place so close to the the city centre - especially as I have become less mobile this past year and cannot walk too far.
The rooms are always clean and the tea etc. making facilities re-stocked daily - and the shower does give a good supply of hot water - which we never got in a number of other places before we had the good fortune to find the St. Raphael.
We are very happy to recommend the St. Raphael to all and sundry - and yes, we WILL be going back for another 6-night stay in September 2011. I just wish it was next week.... Shelagh Mason, Canterbury, Kent, England.
