That's good to hear, and thank you. We don't often get posts from dinner guests so this is especially useful.

The room was beautiful, spacious, the bed was comfortable. The area was quiet and well located, close to the cathedral and town and train station. Excellent breakfast!! Staff was efficient and pleasant.
