We stayed for five nights in early March-it rained a lot but the hotel loaned us umbrellas.
From the moment we arrived (offered a coffee and provided with lots of hints about how to find our way around, what to see and where to eat) we found all the staff were friendly and hospitable and willing to do anything to make our stay enjoyable. The booklet provided in our room on "suggestions and recommendations" was a thoughtful and helpful gesture. All in all, we were made to feel like honoured guests rather than paying customers.
The hotel has a good location-everywhere in the old town was walkable in 15 to 20 minutes-although quite a trek to the train and bus stations. We had a room on the first floor overlooking the street. It was small but well furnished with a comfortable bed. It was noisy at night unless we had the windows and shutters closed, but we had been offered a quieter room in the attic. My advice would be to choose your room, as the more expensive rooms with good views and overlooking the delightful garden (a lovely spot to eat breakfast if the weather is fine) were bigger and quieter.
Good value and very pleasant atmosphere-the bar area serves drinks and snacks all day as well as the breakfast. You only get juice,coffee and toast/croissants unless you ask for the extras.
Would return anytime-just a pity there were no English channels on the TV.
