Overpriced, the mattress was too hard, the pillow too soft. The ironing board was just big enough to iron my tie-how much more would it have cost them to provide a normal one? Breakfast was a very poor selection and overpriced for what it was. I would not recommend it.

We recently stayed at La Charpiniere whilst looking for a wedding venue. Nice location down a long driveway so no traffic noise, and plenty of secure parking. We had a ground floor room which was plenty big enough and clean, although it unfortunately was on the way between the bar and the stairs to other floors, which meant lots of... More

We do our maximum so that the quiet of each is respected but, unfortunately, it’s not easy every day. We are sorry that you had an impression of indifference from our staff what usually is not the case... We however hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again More

We chose this needing an overnight stop on the way from the Riviera to the Loire but might not have done had we read the recent reviews on this site beforehand. It is basically a new hotel built around an old round tower (now used for a couple of suites). There was plenty of parking near the hotel entrance, and... More

Just a few international TV channels. Wi-fi on payment, no good signal in the rooms far away from lobby. Gym(small and just a few tools),SPA(by reservation) and outdoor swimming pool (for... More

St Galmier is not a destination (unless you are a disciple of Auguste Badoit). So this is a transit hotel. Despite the carefully angled photos on the websites, which contrive to give the impression that the buildings are quite old, this is essentially a brand-new building. To that extent, it very much resembles a Novotel, but has even less warmth... More

This was our third one night stay at this hotel (we've stayed here previous years), which has been recently bought. The new owners are in the process of renovating the place and, as a consequence, there's a lot of work going on (which the hotel warned us about when we made our reservation.) As it turned out, this caused us... More
