“Poor standard”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2008

The free parking is actually a couple of free places on the road outside the hotel, first come first served. The hotel looked in need of decoration but ok for one night until we got to our floor which stank (a mixture of dirty socks and mould is the nearest I could describe it). There was an overpowering, heavy smell of cigar smoke in our room. When we booked our room the hotel were informed that we had a three month old baby with us. I was concerned for my baby's health if we were to stay in that room. The air on the main street outside was cleaner. The room was en suite and a good size but was grubby, we could manage that but not the smell / fumes. When we asked for some help from the receptionist in changing our room or finding a room elsewhere she was extremely unhelpful, with the attitude of 'like it or leave it'. My partner is French so there was no issues of language barrier or misunderstanding. We left, however still had to pay as it was pre-booked and you need to provide 24 hours notice for cancellations in France.

The L'Epi d'Or is cheap enough a single room cost £40.
But be aware that the single rooms do not have a shower just a bath. The rooms look across a very busy a street but the location is walkable into the town centre. Ask for a map at reception.

The receptionist went on and on about how to switch on the flat screen T.V. Most state of the art peice of kit in the whole room. Although my friend did have the sort of lamps that just dim when you touch them. No BBC news....by the way.

Cheap and Cheerful...we had breakfast in town.

Stayed April 2008
