Asked for a quiet room and given a downstairs room on the street! Changed it for a snug but comfy room upstairs. The house creaked all night though there were lovely fluffy towels in the bathroom and hot chocolate in the mini bar. Just as well. The restaurant was closed that night but there were some ancient looking quiches and muffins under a cover. Breakfast was at 7.30. No it wasn't - the chef hadn't arrived. At 8 the chef still hadn't arrived and clearly wasn't going to. I was offered the quiche and muffins I had seen yesterday. There was a small table with an apple and two oranges, a packet of rice Krispies and two packets of Special K . Bleak and horrid. I declined, had a coffee and fled. No impetus to make some toast or solve the problem. It should work, but it just doesn't. Bad feeling in the evening about the place, worse in the morning. Pretentious - and basic needs are just not met.
