My room was a double superior room with floor to ceiling french doors opening onto a lovely wrought iron balcony and overlooking the square. Both the location of the hotel and the location of the room were perfect as I could watch people shopping and relaxing in the sun below and only needed to step outside and I was amongst the boutiques and restaurants of Angouleme.
There was a small fridge, but no tea or coffee facilities or drinking glasses, and the bathroom amenities consisted of one towel, no bathmat and plenty of liquid soap - however, the bed was extremely comfortable with plenty of pillows.
I had difficulty at first getting WIFI to connect on either my iPhone 4 or my lap top computer but the proprietor, Dominic, went to great lengths to assist with this problem.
Breakfast was generous and delicious. It consisted fruits, yogurt, breads, pastries, croissants along with cheeses, ham, prosciutto, boiled eggs etc and do-it-yourself freshly squeezed orange juice.
So, whilst the amenities were a little spartan, the bed was comfortable, breakfast was great, the location was perfect, and the proprietor was hospitable and wonderful - and I would definitely choose to stay here again.
