Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The room was comfortable and very well appointed. The fridge, kettle and coffee machine were very welcome but it would have been nice to be supplied with enough coffee capsules and tea bags for the week. Charging for more felt a bit mean.

It was good to have control over the heating/air conditioning, not always the case in a hotel!

I reported on the first evening that the light on my bathroom mirror did not function but this was never repaired.

However I had a glorious terrace surrounded by shrubbery and arrived back each evening to the aroma of jasmine outside my door.
