We spent our Anniversary here in April. Upon arrival received a complimentary upgrade, as well as a half-liter of champagne. The staff was attentive and happy. The room was very comfortable with a lovely view of the stone bridge over the river. Flowers galore were blooming. Enjoyed the bikes and walking opportunities. Patio access was indirect due to construction, but we had no noise and it didn't really detract from the experience.
Dining: Bar service in the late-afternoon was a bit slow. Dinner was excellent with excellent service. I loved the scallops appetizer which served as my meal. Breakfast was weak--undercooked egg and extremely slow service.
