We loved the people and the situation. - the staff couldn't have done enough for us, and were polite and welcoming from our first arrival. We only booked two days in advance and requested a twin room, and a quiet one, both of which requests were met. We had a room which looked out over the back gardens down to the river, (which merited a walk in the evenings.)
However our disappointment was the tiny size of the room, with plain basic furniture, worthy of a school dorm. We could hardly move around the beds without bumping into each other. The toilet was fine (no extraordinary noises or suction machines!!) but the main shower room was grubby, and smelt damp, due to the lack of an extractor fan. Thus there were black marks on the walls, and poor standard of tiling in the shower. The room decor was dull and overall could have done with a lick of bright paint and some pictures. Howewver, the beds were comfortable and we did get a good nights sleep. I had the feeling that this room was not used very often, or was used as an overflow room, so this may have been the case. Yes there were the odd one or two flies, but there are flies everywhere in France in August, so we carry fly spray in our car, which we used.
We didn't bother asking for a change, as we are fairly tolerant travellers, and have stayed in a lot worse, in all parts of the world. As we were there for only two nights, sleep was more important to us. But would have requested a move if were were there longer.
We enjoyed the meals in the grill room on both evenings, and the pricing system was explained to us. We thought the cost was very reasonable. Would we stay again?? yes, but would book further in advance and make sure we had one of the bigger rooms at the back.
