This is a very grand hotel with beautiful grounds. I enjoyed staying here.
We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the water. Every morning we had breakfast on the terrace which has the same marvelous view. The breakfast was good although several times I saw flies on the cold meats and smoked fish on the buffet, which was rather off-putting.
The staff of the hotel were universally pleasant, helpful and obliging.
The staff advised us not to drink the water from the bathroom taps. The only drinking water provided in the room was in the mini bar at 6 euros a for a liter bottle.
Although this is a Hilton Hotel, there was no tea/coffee maker in the room.
