Hard pillows but lovely views of the river
Posted Jul 17, 2013 on Hotels
We felt that the view of the river was very peaceful, even though the restaurant activities below our window broke the peace at times. The pillows were hard although the bed was reasonably comfortable, we were impressed with the cleanliness and the linen having been replaced each day.The reception we recieved was mediocre.and the lift only went to the first of two floors. We were not offered any help with our cases. We had not got our own car with us and relied upon buses, taxis and trains to get out and about and we felt that we were not helped as much with information regarding the transport facilities as we had hoped for. The man on reception (who could speak good english) had a habit of not responding to our conversation, instead he looked down at his books, or the computer, which gave us the impression that he was ignoring us. The restaurant staff were very friendly and the young girl on reception did her best, given the language barrier. We enjoyed the surrounding area and the town of Olivet has a lovely cafe which we had to discover for ourselves!
