We stayed with you recently (October 3-11), and talked about our earlier visits.
These were – December 19 – 22, 1985
– December 19 – 23, 1986
and – May 14 – 20, 1988.
Please, find enclosed for your archive the first of my bookings, a brochure of those days, and a photo of my wife on your doorstep (in 1985), when the hotel is shown with its one star.
Before the lift was installed it was a long walk to the upper floors with a heavy bag, and I remember the Greuze print of a soulful maiden’s head at the entrance to the stairwell.
Our room was en suite – with a concertina screen wich pulled across when use.
I cannot remember who was in charge in 1985. But I found the Madame in 1988 was rather fierce! For some years we stayed elsewhere, returning briefly for a couple of night in May, 2004. Our recent visit (party of five) was a great sucess, and we hope to return.
