From previous reviews we knew that this hotel was regarded as rather shabby and tired and so our expectations were lower than say our very positive experience of the Accor Hotel in Chatres. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable (even if the quirky roof line made access difficult to some parts) but the bathroom was of a poor standard and... More

Room sizes are typical for Europe, very clean and modern. Centrally located for easy access to places of interest by foot. The town is shut down on Sunday and Monday which happened to be my days off during this business trip. The hotel bar was open and had 2 tapas selections.

We arrived at this hotel after a 6 hour drive and were offered no assistance with our bags or finding our room. This is in contrast to every other hotel or guest house we have stayed in in France where the host has always offered assistance. The room is OK. But the worst part is that for a Mercure hotel,...

5th stay at this hotel. Booked a standard room this time (previously had a superior room). A little smaller but adequate size. Room had a shower enclosure (which we prefer) rather than a shower over bath. Easy to check in/out. Rooms have minibar and a mini safe. Will be staying here again. Restaurant (in form of a brasserie) is independent... More

A great place to stay on the way from the North of France when heading to the Languedoc. We were greeted with a beautiful converted monastery in great surroundings and plenty of secure parking. It is better to ask for a larger room as the space is enormous. The Restaurant would seem to be the old Chapel which has been... More

I'm surprised that you would say that there was no offer of snacking service. There is a special Snack menu on the tables of the bar and at the reception. I confirm that the restaurant, that is now runed by an external Chef, is closed on monday and that's why we now provide a snack service. Thierry PUYFAGES More
