We booked this hotel for its view and indeed it was fantastic however that was the only thing we liked. The room didn't seem very clean, the bedding in particular; other peoples hair on the bathroom floor is always off putting. The biggest problem however was the total lack of sound proofing. You could hear every flush of toilet, shower and conversation in other rooms which went on until 1am in the morning and started again around 6am.
We were also extremely disappointed with dinner. I ordered beef cheek with parmentier potatoes and got luke warm sloppy watery mash and dry meat. Hubby ordered duck medallions which was some kind of insipid mashed / pureed meat again served with sloppy mash instead of the parmentier potatoes advertised. Frankly I would have been embarrassed to serve it let alone charge for it. We gave breakfast a miss after our dinner experience.
We paid more for our very basic room without breakfast - 2star at best (with a stunning balcony to be fair ) than we paid for four and five star hotels with breakfast during our trip. This is a very basic hotel with a stunning view - the view will not disappoint but the rest will.
