We felt looked after
In covid times most services weren’t available. Breakfast (complimentary room service) is a tray airline-style with pre-confectioned items like wrapped biscuits, toasties, Tetra-pak juice, fruit salad, single mmmmm mono-portion jams and spreadable cheese, fresh croissants and pancakes. Not too bad. However, there is no bar service, and kettles and cothe machines have been removed from all bedroom. The restaurant only offers one choice per course per night (3-course meal). The pool is closed. The kids games have been removed. Despite all these restrictions it still felt like home to us. The room is good and cosy, and you still get a decent shower! Remember to ask Reception for your double-wrapped individual soaps and shampoos though, as they have been taken out of the rooms too. I know it is difficult times but most of the staff are so nice and generous that they will do anything they can to make your stay as smooth and comfortable as possible. We were staying with two young children and we stroll felt looked after. Thank you.

This was a last-minute overnight stop between a long run from Monaco to Elba Island so we didn't really expect / wish for much. Parking was fine, staff we friendly and helpful. I took my daughter for some breakfast before departing & although fine, it was quite crowded and I didn't like the way some of the families were treating the staff (who were managing well given the quantity of people wishing to eat). Room was pretty average and outdated. Underground parking was OK albeit very tight. There were multiple underground levels for the car parking but that wasn't super-clear at arrival.
