There's no room cleaning service due the coronavirus crisis. I really understand the sanitary reasons, but the Hotel is not cheap and they didn't inform that circumstance until we arrived. You should advice to the clients about all unavailable services before

Fair 4.0
Booked bed & breakfast wasleft garbled voice the night before stay to say that breakfast was grab & go, a sandwich. Was told it was to do with ovid restrictions but in same breath asked if we wanted to book for dinner no restriction there. Hotel should not have booked to many people if they did not have capacity for a cooked brrakfast for those booked. Have stayed at Colomba previously on multiple occasions but this has made me think twice about rebooking.

Arrived after 7pm so I wasnt able to choose a take away breakfast. That was fine, I would take my chances. However, I was still unable to get one in the morning.

Pleasant enough, could have been better
Room was small with a partial sea view, I had booked a sea view room. Getting a bit dated inside and out.
