Spent 5 nights at this hotel and though staff was nice and the food good, I fail to see it meets with a 4 star rating.
Located by a small park and close to the city centre, this hotel seems to have defined its niche as a kind of art deco blast from the past.
The common areas such as reception and the bar/restaurant are quite charming,and the art deco theme is strongest here.
Though menu options are fairly limited the food quality is very good, albeit quite pricey. We spent the same amount on a 3 course dinner for 2 with only soft drinks as we normally do at the 5 star Concorde Hotel in Berlin, but here it would be accompanied by wine. That is a little disturbing for a small, provincial, French town.
In all fairness the food, which is served in a bar that also serves as a restaurant, was accompanied nicely by live music - one day by a 2 man blusey act, and another by a very skilled pianist. To us this was a plus, but should you prefer to dine in a more formal restaurant setting this is probably not for you.
A big plus is the wifi, which works well, and at a very good price 3 EUR for 24 hours, but you can connect and disconnect as needed, so the 24 hours lasted for the entire visit.
On the less positive side
While the rooms are spacious with very nice, new bathrooms, they could probably do with a carpet cleaning (hallways as well as guest rooms) and maybe even a furniture upgrade.
The rooms seems the furthest from the art deco theme.
Also there was quite a big gap between the door and the floor, so the door did not shut fully - not that it turned out to be a big issue, but I see that others have remarked the same.
Breakfast seem overly expensive both compared to the area and the selection - again this is a small hotel in a French, provencial town billing on the level of a luxury hotel in London or Berlin.
While on the subject of food, it also seems an odd idea to shut down what little restaurant services are availabe on Sunday (though that seems to be in keeping with the rest of the town).
During our stay the bar/restaurant was full of people (app. 30) having drinks and we all met each other in town trying to locate a open restaurant. Considering that the facilities are there I would have elected to offer that service to my guests.
All in all a positive experience, though I think I would go for a French country inn next time.
