We went on a two week tour de France. I was so excited about this hotel because the website looks so lovely, and so I decided to splurge a bit. I thought that at a "nice" hotel like this the charm room would be sufficient for my boyfriend and I to enjoy a romantic evening. I was very, very wrong.
When we arrived, my boyfriend went to park the car and I went to check in. I was shown to a room and the front desk person helped me with my luggage (there is no bell person or valet). When I entered the room I was so totally shocked by the CLOSET (tiny, dark, no view) in which I found myself that I just sat on the bed and waited for my boyfriend to come save me and tell me it wasn't that bad. BUT IT WAS THAT BAD. Immediately he told me that we could leave, or he would see if other rooms were available. There were only two rooms available - one for 400 euro and the other for around 200 euro. I refused to pay 400 euro so we looked at the other one (a third level room).
The room was nice enough so we decided to take it and the hotel split the difference with us. I would have been happy with the room if it was what I originally booked and paid for, but the fact that the "acceptable" level room was a third level room is very disturbing. Even more disturbing is that the following morning when we were checking out we had the opportunity to peek in many of the other rooms. It appears that there are MANY closets (first level, charm rooms) in the hotel, and the other rooms are quite awful as well. I have to admit that I think that we got the best room in the place, and it was not a suite. The suites looked awful.... CERTAINLY NOT worth the asked rate.
Then there was dinner. We were there for a three course foie gras dinner. My boyfriend LOVES foie gras and I am trained as a chef and quite adventurous when it comes to food. The food was lousy. Just bad.
The whole experience was terribly disappointing.
