Booked through Booking.com as an air conditioned suite, the reality was a dark dingy non airconditioned room akin to a Paris brothel with dark Blue decor and gold fittings surrounded by smoked glass mirrors. The lack of aircon meant sleeping with open windows, consequently we were awoken at 5am by traffic noise. The bathroom was even worse with a peach coloured suite, once again gold fittings and smoked glass. The whole decor was very 1980's but the price charged was most certainly up to date, a total of 168 euros for B&B and parking, this for a very second rate 3 star establishment. Items that did not work included TV, phone, radio, spa bath, and the shower riser fell to pieces when touched. There were no toiletries in the bathroom just dispensers of indeterminate liquid of unknown pedigree, no tea or coffee facilities and no fridge for cold drinks. Feeling that a cold beer was in order at this stage , I went down to the bar, situated opposite reception, but, despite sitting there for some time, and prompting the receptionist, I eventually gave up. Faced with the ongoing disaster, my wife and I decided not to chance the restaurant and eat out. On leaving, I reported all the items not working to reception, nothing had been done on our return. My complaints upon departure and a demand for a reduction in the bill were Gallically ignored, it was our impression that the staff had heard it all before, and really did not give a damn.
