Lovely-looking but ill-designed room meant nowhere near mirror to plug in hairdryer; kettle had to be plugged in awkwardly (and dangerously) on floor near the door. Wardrobe so full of things already -- coffee tray; hair dryer; and goodness knows what -- that space for clothing severely limited. Television channels limited; Radio Three missing from radio line-up. Restaurant at dinner notable for number of things that were already not available -- and we were eating quite early. Even crepes suzette were sold out -- but, hold on, don't you make them, not buy them in?? Ditto cooked breakfast; one person managed a kipper, but that was the only kipper. Appalling breakfast toast, just soggy rather than crisp. Breakfast fruit juice choice on second day was ... just orange juice. That said, remaining continental breakfast array excellent. Staff -- mostly -- friendly and helpful. but wine waiter at dinner far too aggressive in refilling glasses until bottle was empty and then trying to persuade another purchase. To cap it all, final bill included a complete stranger's room charge as well, though this was swiftly rectified. A lovely building, in a terrific situation, but far more show than substance unfortunately.
