We drove back to the hotel and as we had a long coach trip ahead of some 400km we thought a good lunch was essential. We sat by the pool and told the waiter how much time we had and let him make suggestions. He made an excellent choice for us as we had…. Whilst S had a pud (which …

Fine. We were wrongly booked and the hotel sorted it out really well.
