The hotel was used as base for a night during a visit at Futuroscope. We stayed in the 'Top Club' section of the Hotel, this was only different to the standard section thanks to a minibar, some bath robes and a 'courtesy tray.'
The check in process all ran smoothly, and we got to our rooms with no trouble, however, when we arrived in our rooms we found that there was a window linking the bathroom and bedroom. This was a bit uncomfortable, as anyone having a shower would have their midriff in plain view, which is of course fine if you are staying with a partner, but it is a tad awkward to say the least if you are staying with your family. We did in fact try to cover up the window but we found it fairly tricky, and there was no curtain to use. The whole room was decorated in a rather drab 1980s style with orange and brown decor. The designers also thought it would be a good idea to line most of the room in faux ostrich skin, which did nothing to aid the overall experience. The air conditioning could not be controlled from inside the room, so we could do nothing to improve the pathetic dribble of air from the small vent. The shower bath/shower door was far to small for any reasonably sized man, so when the shower was turned on the floor would rapidly become drenched.
The facilities available gave the 'Top Club' section 4 stars, but these did nothing to compensate for the dreadful look and feel of the hotel.
The room was overlooking other drab and tired looking buildings behind the hotel and a car park. There was a poorly kept lawn with heating units whirring noisily, and did nothing to help my sleep.
While the staff were friendly and polite they didn't speak very good English, which would not have been at all helpful for any non-French speaking visitors.
The complementary breakfast we had at the hotel was really quite poor, it was a buffet with cereals like coco pops etc. The tables weren't cleaned after someone had left, I really did expect more a 4 star hotel.
So, overall a fairly disappointing visit, even for one night only.
