You may say this is typically french – you may be right as it shows how little can be sufficient to run a place like this successfully in this country. Rooms are made to look like something up-market, when you touch on any of the surfaces they will dissolve since it is all made of lowest price materials. In my bathroom for instance three lightbulbs out of four were defect, staff only managed to repair this one. Again you may say it is french character to know how to improvise – but then I am not charged full price normally? When you want to use the pool the caretaker will rudely shout at you it is closed since they are working on it, although it should be on duty as you have also paid for it.
All in all, while the location as such is great, this is not a happy place, and it is clearly overpriced for its unloving way of being managed.
