“Tiny, dirty and expensive”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2006

I can not believe this hotel has two stars.
The whole place really needs redecorating from top to bottom, especially bathroom which tiny and dirty.
Breakfast was very meager.

We found this hotel via a website called francehotelnetwork - this was probably where the problem started because they quoted a price of 89 euros a night for 4 people. By the time 'service charges' and breakfast were added we ended up paying 130 euros which was NOT made clear on the website. Avoid this website - it will cost you more than you think!!

The room for 4 was a reasonable size, 1 double bed and 2 bunks, but the ensuite bathroom was tiny. Sitting on the toilet your nose was touching the wall and you couldn't bend down to wash your face in the sink without hitting the door with your bum. It was also very dirty. Actually it was odd - the toilet seat & pan, the sink and the inside of the shower - all the things you actually touch - were spotless; it was just every other surface in the bathroom that was filthy - outside of the shower cubicle, shelves etc.

The whole place really needs redecorating from top to bottom - worn out carpet, yellowed walls etc.

Breakfast was very meager - even by French standards. No yoghurt or fruit, just a choice of 2 wheat-based cereals, bread and brioche - certainly not worth the 9 euros a head charged.

Oh, the walls were very thin and the couple in the next room had a very enjoyable time between 1.00am and 1.10am!
