“Positively surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We had a hard time finding a hotel in Corte so we finally decided on this one. As we only needed to stay one night we didn't bother too much and had very low expectations when we arrived. For the low price we paid I definitely think we got much for our money and everyone in our group liked it, especially the restaurant which had very good food.

We had a room on one of the highest floors facing the garden and could fall asleep to the sound of a waterfall.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Stayed for two nights on our recent tour of Corsica. Very welcoming landlady, basic room with tiny bathroom but comfortable. Ate in the restaurant both nights, very good quality food and presentation, set menu reasonably priced at €22.50 for 3 courses but only two choices each course.

Breakfast was extra and was rather overpriced at €9

There is another rather dubious looking hotel across the road but nothing else in walking distance in the area.

Room very dirty and very small.
Hotel service: ZERO. No help with baggage (3rd floor, no elevator) - I am quite young, big and no problem for me. But for other people it may be a big issue (no help at all from the YOUNG guy at the desk)
Very noisy from hotel rooms nearby.
Bathroom very small and uncomfortable. No Wifi working (even if sold as included) and no help by the hotel. Isolated from Corte.
ABSOLUTELY TO AVOID

Forget all the romantic stuff about this hotel being one of the oldest in Corsica etc, it is an out and out dump! Not really surprising therefore that "The Rough Guide" says that if all other hotels in the area are full there will always be rooms available at "Le Torrent"!! We booked a stay of four days in advance by email from home in UK. When we arrived we were shown to a room that resembled an old cupboard, just a few square feet bigger than the double bed in it. There was not even a power point in the room although when we pointed this out we were moved to another equally miniscule room. Apologies were made by a young guy who we think was a family member. He said that they had only taken the hotel over in March 2009 and that it needed a complete renovation - he said the beds were not good and needed to be replaced and the same with the electrics. This made us feel real good! It soon became clear that we were the only guests staying there. Without wishing to bore you too much more, the breakfast the next day was not very good....the patron could not grasp the concept of very hot water being necessary for a cup of tea. We were philosophical and decided to grin and bear it. The final straw came about at breakfast on the second day. The orange juice was rancid....after a sniff by the patron it was replaced. However, not before we realised that everything that was put before us was almost certainly of some considerable age! Enough was enough and we moved out. It was truly quite appalling. At the end of the day it is your decision whether to go there or not and it is just possible that it will be improved for next year. But we would not wish anyone else's holiday to be marred as ours was.
