The staff welcomed us enthusiastically and were keen to speak English, which is always good for those of us with only basic O-level French.... Our room was a Suite on the fourth floor and was light, spacious and airy with two double French patio doors with Juliette balconies with fabulous views over pretty much the Centre of the beautiful Town of Ceret, which appeals to people with a variety of interests. Arts - there is a working fountain designed by Pablo Picasso right opposite your window and an Art Museum nearby would also be a great base for hikers, walkers, tourists, cyclists this town has a lot to offer including a great Saturday Market and Thursday Antiques Market. Less than one minutes walk away is the towns best restaurant called Des Bisbe at the Hotel Vidal - they start Dinner at 7.45pm. It is best to book. You eat in an open atrium covered over with Vine Leaves, very atmospheric. Thebedroom has rather dated furniture but some how it just didn't matter, the quirkiness just added to its charm. WiFi signal was very good here. Other rooms on lower floors could only use Wifi in the public areas. There is a bathroom which was basic but there was a separate room for the toilet. We were here for one night only as we rent a villa about half an hour away and needed a bolt hold . No tea making facilities are in the room but there is a cafe/bar directly outside the entrance to the hotel. Parking is available at the rear of the hotel, let them know first. Breakfast is fresh croissants and bread with a selection of jams and really good coffee.
