Hotel de France, Nice, 21 November, 2021

Let’s start with the positive: there is a contraption for squeezing your oranges. As for the rest, this breakfast, sad to say, confirmed my views on French hotel breakfasts in general. Yes, the bread was fresh. But, very limited choice of fruit, no vegetables, not much in terms of cheese or cold cuts (and the cheese looked rather sad), and the hot dishes were some not particularly attractive-looking scrambled eggs and sausages. The hot water for the tea (bags!) was tepid at best. Other members of the party pointed out that the coffee was capsule coffee only, and hence sub-standard. All in all, not very impressive and it ends up at 3.5/10
