The staff were very nice, the hotel was clean, warm, well-decorated and in a good state of repair. Its well-located. However, it seemed that corners had been cut in the standard of service and this spoiled our visit.
There was no bar of soap in the bathroom and the liquid soap was fixed to the wall at a height that would have been convenient if you were taking a shower but inaccessible from the bath. The hot water wasn't hot enough.
Breakfast was disappointing: instead of stewed prunes, they were straight from the packet; the fruit in the bowl was tired and melon was unripe. The choice of cereals was limited and dull and there was no natural yoghurt. The artisan bread which had been praised in earlier reviews had been changed for cheap steam-baked bread. The cooked meal was heavy and poorly cooked. They had cut corners on quality across the menu and it was very noticeable.
