Don't go on a Tuesday, which is a "proprietor and staff day- off" (both hotel and restaurant)- and it really is that. Whilst this was known when we booked,and were warned accordingly, and could let ourselves in with keys left out, arriving at a totally deserted "Marie Celeste hotel" does come as something of a surprise, although the proprietor did in fact arrive later in response to a phone call. Perhaps it would be better not to take bookings on that day. Detracted from what could have a pleasant overnight stop.
The hotel is, rather sadly, really "faded elegance"-and it really could be so good. The location is beautiful, tranquil and very convenient for both short and long terms stays.Excellent breakfast in pleasant dining room.
