Very dissapointed with this family run hotel. I thought i'd try something different to the usual "chain hotels" i normally go to however this was a mistake.
The management policy is "if you're not happy, don't stay here". No comments/complaints or suggestions are allowed. You'd think that a country like France would provide top-notch quality service but i couldn't have been more dissapointed.
We tried checking in early and we were greeted by the owner, a seventy year old man sweaty and with no t-shirt on. I appreciate the personal touch but this was a bit too much.
On one occassion I was trying to get some information at the reception desk and an old lady (the owners wife?) came out of the back office holding the phone so the receptionist would pick it up. Really offended by that as i was there first.
The room was a decent size howerver the mirror was so old it was starting to go brown on the edges. The view is the only thing worth it in the hotel. The batchroom had one of those horrible hairdryers stuck to the wall wich are totally useless.
Poor breakfast and service. Burnt croissants and a gentleman that doesnt care and speaks no english.
They reccommended their restaurant in town with is pretty rubbish too.
