I had the misfortune to stay here for three nights in January whilst on a business trip. This place was everything I dislike in a hotel, - inefficient, tired, staff that appeared not to care and worst of all not clean.
Arriving on a Monday night after a day of travel, I was disappointed to find the restaurant closes on Monday, I was offered a takeaway pizza which certainly didnt whet my appetite, so a 23 euro taxi back in to town for dinner and another 23 euro back to the hotel again.
The hotel is a very old property with rooms spread around several buildings, no lift (elevator) in my building and no offer of assistance with luggage, not that I needed it, but others might.
The room was not pleasant - heavy patterned curtains, heavy carpet and a bed with blanket and bedspread. The bedspread had noticeable stains on it, I dread to think where from. Pillows were very flat and clearly old. Towels were thin, stained and once again old, fit for the rubbish bin in my opinion. I wouldn't give one to my dog.
The room was dusty, a layer of dust coated the bedside radio, dust on surfaces in the room and hair in the bathroom, This is not a place that takes much care over room cleanliness. The shower head, as soon as water was turned on, rotated to a position where water sprayed over the floor. To keep the shower head fixed in position required a third arm which regrettably I am not blessed with - the solution was to jam the shower head between my lesgs whilst soaping my body - I am in a position in life when I can do without this sort of rubbish!
Breakfast - a poor implementation of a continental breakfast, ghastly scrambled eggs - generally poor and costs, I think 16 euros. One staff member tends to the buffet but she says nothing and completely ignores guests - not even a bonjour, just horribly impersonal.
The bar is poor, attended to by the single person who also manages reception, reception gets priority so you may have to wait a while!!
Photos of the pool are shown on the website for the hotel, what isn't shown is that the pool is surrounded by the carpark, not too nice for a lazy day by the pool in the sunshine.
All in all, this is a place that could be nice, it needs modernising, greater attention to cleanliness and change the staff from everything that is bad about France to people that show they actually care. Hideous place.
