We are part way through a 4 night stay here at the moment and I have to say the place isn't bad at all! Yes it's a little out of the way but its not bad really.
Initial impressions when I walked in our room were that the decoration was rather dark - I think lighter decor would really help. We also had a ground floor room with a little balcony that didn't look out on to much - I'd recommend getting first floor or above to appreciate the views. However the view from the breakfast terrace is stunning! Bed is very comfy - I had no trouble sleeping!
There is loads of parking space, and the nearest place to eat is a one minute walk (Le jam) and serves up good food (but closed on a Monday).
I would agree with others that breakfast is a little limited for the price (9 E 50 I think, per person) so we just did it for the morning after our first nights stay and bought in our own breakfast things from a supermarket. There is a kitchenette available.
