8/10 Very good

Bonne expérience
La chambre est assez spacieuse et propre, la literie est confortable. La partie salle d'eau est bien agencée (assez de place autour du lavabo, douche à l'italienne, bonne pression, température de l'eau ok). Seul bémol, impossibilité d'ouvrir les fenêtre à plus de 10 cm, mais comme dans beaucoup d'hôtels de ce type. Nous avions pris avec petit déjeuner inclus (buffet continental et traditionnel anglais mélangé), il était très bien, beaucoup de choix et les produits sont bons. Attention, une caution de 50 Livres vous est réclamée en arrivant !

8/10 Very good

Our stay was great, but disappointed that there are no waiting staff for breakfast. We have stayed here every year for years and there was always staff to bring tea or coffee to the table for breakfast but now you have to get it yourself from a machine. Don’t like it and won’t be staying here again.
