We stayed over on a cold Saturday night in the very off-season with little traffic or pedestrians. The staff was very friendly, warm and accomodating. The decor was relaxing and inviting with the smell of fresh baking bread. We watched the sunset over the harbor from the comfy third floor common room, and then joined the other guests in the lower common area for wine and cheese which was very tasty. We borrowed a video from their rather limited library and went to the room ("town side", street level) and read for awhile. I went upstairs to the guest computer and checked my emails, and then wandered down to the breakfast area, helped myself to some granola and staff provided me with a glass of milk to go with it.
About ten o'clock we turned in, the occassional car was not disturbing with the heavy blinds drawn, and fell asleep. At eleven o'clock we were awoken by someone rolling a cart over the cobblestones outside our window, then banging their way through the front door and clomping to the supply closet near our door. Then chit-chat, chit-chat, chit-chat, finally clomping away. Then trying to fall asleep again...people on the sidewalk outside our window talking!! They go away and sleep finally comes at midnight, uninterupted.
So, DON'T get a "town side" room or any room on the first floor if you are a light sleeper. The coffee and fresh cranberry bread in the morning was super, and other cereals and yogurt was available. We stayed as long as we could just enjoying the third floor common room and regretfully left. Our only other disappointments were the scratchy towels and toilet paper. It was an overall 95% enjoyable stay.
