Pre booked room in for a stay in September, the room wasn't ready when we arrived at 4pm. Although It was actually promised at 2pm, we were asked to come back in another hour. We were very tired and hot and there was no parking due to a noisy Saturday market and we advised the receptionist that we wouldn't be staying, she then came rushing out to tell us the room was ready after all. We got our suitcases out and had to carry them up a steep circular stairway which absolutely crippled us. The room was so small and cramped with all sorts of tired looking furniture in it. It was noisy as it overlooked the market. We went for a walk and came back and told the Receptionist we were checking out as we didn't like it. She said she would charge us as we had used the toilet. Finally we found a very nice Chambre D'Hote for the night overlooking the river with a bit of help from Tourist Information. Absolutely dreadful
