I am going with the others, who rate this hotel as being a heady mix of eccentricity and oldey woldey charme!! Staff absolutely lovely - couldn't have been more helpful, charming and polite. Sorted out an initial booking problem with minimal fuss and upgraded our room to a slightly larger one f.o.c. due to a large party booking. Heady mix of antique furniture, including an ancient throne-like commode halfway up the stairs and ornate washbasins in reception washrooms. Cosy snug/whiskey bar, featuring massive selection of malts. Someone had gone wild with v strong cleaning products in the Reception; when we arrived, my husband nearly keeled over with the "fumes" however, this had largely dispersed by the next day (or maybe we'd just got used to it). Re. The dog in reception, previously mentioned by other TripAdvisor members. He is on a lead permanently, but basically, it appears he was a "rescue" and has been traumatised when v young. We won him over by little titbits from our dinner/breakfast! Plenty of hot water from shower, although it was somewhat vertically challenged and wouldn't stay up its little pole long. We couldn't get our TV to work, but we weren't that bothered. Wifi is now free - it worked very well in our room as well as all over the hotel. The room was very well heated, including during the night, which did make it a little hot, despite being able to open the window a bit. Big, solid walls = v quiet! Lovely bath towels, linen, exactly as others have described. Bed firm - I loved it, but it was too firm for my husband - it's all a matter of personal taste. The restaurant next door - attached to the hotel - was excellent. Food was delicious and very good value. So..... if you want something personal and different, I would definitely go for this hotel. There is a secure car park underneath the hotel, currently 8€/night, although plenty of off street parking (do remove valuables in this case, car robberies are still "big" in France).
