“Sad, unwelcoming and one to avoid at all costs”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Everything was wrong. We pre-arranged an early arrival (the don't open until 1800!) but that didn't get through and we rang and were told to try the back door and the barking of the dog would wake the owner! We were shown to the disabled room (even though we arre not and had arrived by bike!). Full marks for having one - if only it had been finished! One had to negotiate a half-built entrance and the front door had a plastic rubbish bag instead of a blind to the outside ("I haven't had the time to get a blind"). We declined the room but worse was to come. Up two narrow flights of stairs, all stained, to the garret rooms, with the smallest ever shower room. It was accessed by a sliding door as it was only the width of the loo, that could be touched from the bed! There were pipes coming from the ceiling and air con was broken, as was the loo flush. I could go on - suffice to say it was probably the worst hotel we have stayed in during the 45 years we have been regularly visiting in France. I refuse to comment on the meal other that to say it was depressing, as was the unsmiling service.

Room Tip: Don't go there!

Arrived late on a Saturday afternoon for a pre-booked room, but a note on locked door said "back at 6pm". Telephoned the hotel but no response.
Door finally opened at 6.45pm, with a rather dubious reason given that didn't stack up
General condition of the entrance area, stairs and landing corridors was abysmal; dusty, filthy carpets, and the smell of pets - could see the dog making itself at home on the reception carpet - was just too bad.
The bedrooms seemed fine and up-to-date, but the general condition was so far below the Logis standards we declined to stay.
I wouldn't stay here even if it were free of charge
