There were some peculiarities. My room had no wardrobe, with only minimal hanging space on a kind of hat stand and no drawers for my clothes. The presence of a bidet in the small bathroom made climbing out of the bath hazardous, to say the least. And the breakfast arrangements were somewhat strange: a make-it-yourself pot of honey-flavoured instant porridge, which I didn't like and couldn't eat after the first morning, and a kind of choc-chip bun, which turned out to be past its use-by date - all left in the room each day. After the first day I bought my own breakfast and took advantage of the excellent facilities downstairs, where Rachel kindly made me plunger coffee. However, for the price (which was quite high, I thought), I felt I should have been provided with a proper breakfast.
I enjoyed the "home from home" welcome, the free use of kitchen and sitting-room facilities, the pleasant bedroom and spotless modern bathroom, and a small bottle of complimentary wine each day.
