Booked in for The Tour de France so just needed somewhere local, cheap (everyone else seemed to have hiked their prices), and available. Great location and I imagine was a fantastic place in its heyday but has clearly suffered from lack of investment. Concerned after reading all the negative reviews, but it served a purpose for us. Owner/manager friendly and... More

Stayed here for three nights recently while on business. I had previously stayed some years ago when the restaurant was in action and was impressed with the food,service and rooms. I think that you have to be very realistic and appreciate that the current staff are trying very hard to build the business back up again and improve the decor... More

We stayed here for 2 nights because the Tour de France was passing by within walking distance. We knew what to expect because of the reviews on here, and because googling the hotel brings up some interesting information. Nevertheless we booked months in advance at a very reasonable price, but felt unsure whether the hotel would still be operating on... More

Having been previously to this hotel we booked in when the tour de france was nearby, paying up front for the room months before. We then found out the restaurant was not open for dinner or breakfasts. On arrival the one person around gave us envelopes with our keys in - no info either from him or on paper, just... More

Was unsure what to expect after reading reviews, but situation and price made us decide to give it a try. Hotel is in a lovely spot and staff were very friendly, but rooms are tired and need some TLC. Pillows were old with no pillow protectors, other than that for the price it was adequate and better then we expected.

Hi. Thank you very much for taking the time to make a review. Hopefully in the not to distant future the hotel will be refurbished in the bedroom sections. As you say the rooms are in places in need of an update, but hopefully we reflect this in the price charged. We note your point re the pillows and see... More

Stayed here for a party. The hotel reception and bar were fine and service was quick, considering it was bust this was appreciated. Function room for the party was fine. Generally the hotel area is tired and needs a lick of paint. Doors were scuffed, our carpet had a huge stain and it needed replacing and the bathroom needed upgrading.... More
