We had a lovely room on the ground floor. "Cold" breakfast (they will serve hot breakfast for an additional fee) was spectacular - coffee/tea/juice/cereals/toast/fruit etc. Everyone should be able to find something to satisfy! No small fridge in the rooms but you can utilize a...More

This is my new favorite accommodation. It's absolutely beautiful, lovingly restored, and close to everything. The breakfast is fantastic, and the host is kind and accommodating. The rooms are stunning, and the beds are very comfortable. I highly recommend it, especially for a romantic getaway!

Short answer - no! When we were there we had no fridge in our room. However there was a (large) fridge which everyone could use which had soft drinks which we could help ourselves to during the day at no charge, and there was no problem with putting our own things into the fridge just for us. FYI if it's alcohol you're after then there's a deli very close by next to an excellent cheese shop (local and international cheeses) where we bought some very good South American wine at a reasonable price. And the city centre is within walking distance if you want greater choice food-wise and/or drinks-wise.
