What a model of rudeness! We called ahead from Moustiers to ask about a room for the night. We were told in reassuring tones that they had availability. The arrangement was that we would come over and have a look. No indication was given that we might need to hurry or reserve. When we arrived, the manager, who had taken the call, listened to us and then walked slowly over to the bar, where he proceeded to turn pages in a large book. As the pages moved, so his head began to move, shaking from side to side. He returned to tell us the there was nothing available, without a hint of regret. When we reminded him that we had called, he told us in a clipped, schoolmasterly tone that we had called sometime ago, and stood staring at us. Was it smugness or indifference that held his face so tight? Although it was clear that we were now without anywhere to stay at 8pm, our new friend did not condescend to offer any advice as to alternative places, but confined himself to a perfunctory 'desolée' and let us wander out into the night. This hotel looks reasonably warm and pleasing from the outside, but take a thick coat with you if you venture into its cold interior. Alternatively, think carefully whom you might wish it upon.
