We spent three nights at Chambery Inn. The building is an original French inspired 19th century school, sympathetically restored and converted to a genteel bed and breakfast inn. Our room "La Chambre Schoolhouse Suite", retains an original blackboard across one wall. With 13 ft ceilings and seven 7 ft windows the suite is filled with light and has a spacious feel. The king canopied bed is luxurious and ensures a sound sleep. There is a gas fire for those who visit in the cooler weather and air conditioning to keep you cool. The suite provides a generous amount of space and is furnished with dark wood period pieces, two winged armchairs and a sofa. To add to the sense of indulgence there is a whirlpool tub. Breakfast arrives at your door in a basket and fresh baked cookies are available in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to return if given the opportunity. For the sake of the inkeeper I would make a couple of minor suggestions. The breakfast menu left for guests to choose one selection from each group is the type used by motels. It is confusing and creates an impression of stinginess which is not at all the case. The first morning the breakfast was of a higher standard and included a large amount of fresh fruit and berries. My other suggestion would be to replace the iron and add some padding to the ironing board. This seems to be an area neglected by a lot of hotels and b&bs in this country. Because we are travelling for an extended period we may be using this facility more than other guests. Overall Chambery Inn is at the top of our list with a couple of other inns we've had the pleasure of enjoying during our road trip over the last 3 weeks.
