“This was a mistake”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2011

We booked in here for two nights but on seeing the place changed to one night. The only reason to stay one night was we would have lost the cost and it would have meant booking elsewhere. Firstly, we were greeted by what I can only think was the owner or at least a relative. Our french is not that good but this guy made it all the more difficult by "rabbitting" on in high speed french and not stopping when we made it clear we didn't understand. Don't get me wrong we love the language but not delivered by machine gun. I'm sure he was really trying to be helpful but it wasn't working. We were shown to our room at the top of the building (no lift) by the non stop speaking gentleman who made great play of the fact that it was very large and that we could select from the three large beds. Normally this could be a bonus but in this case it was more like a secondhand bed shop. The rest of the furniture would not have looked out of place at the council tip. The shower, bidet and wash basin were in the bedroom. I'd not seen this style before must be nouveux! This may be ok for a couple who know each other well but I would not recommend it on a first date. The room was about as tired as our proprietaire. The decoration was possibly new at the time the Wehmacht were billeted here. This place needs a lot spent on it in order to reach even a basic standard. Such a capital project could bring the French economy close to default. I suppose one plus is it is cheap. There are a couple of good bars at the end of the road and a nice restaurant. Agen doesn't have a lot going for it, or if it has we missed it. We went to Nerac for the second night which was a great move. This hotel was the one real disappointment in the whole of our two weeks in France and I wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Book another hotel.
