“Avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

We were referred here by the Hostellerie Sarassine nearby, which was full. The interior of the Auberge was cluttered and had an unpleasant smell. We had a drink on the terrace and were soon covered in crawling insects; we also had to avoid chickens droppings. We were shown the menu which was restricted and expensive, and the state of the breakfast bar did not inspire us with confidence to dine there. The owners were difficult and the general state of the establishment caused us to do something we have never done before; checkout within the hour.
The room would have cost 105 Euros so this was no budget stopover.

The 'Auberge Sarassine' (not to be confused with the nearby 'Hostellerie Sarassine') was not our first choice, but it was a busy weekend and we booked late.

The location and setting are very pleasant and the owners offered us a warm welcome: They and their staff treated us with courtesy throughout our stay.

We would describe the place as 'having character', and for us its quirkiness was its saving grace (as otherwise we could have described it as very tired). Cleanliness was obviously not high up on the establishment's list, but at least they seemed to be making an effort and it could have been a lot worse. Our room was spacious but certainly in need of a general refurb. The bed had two single matresses with the inevitable 'groove' in the middle. The pillows were uncomfortable; and we were kept awake by a few infuriating mosquitoes. (The hotel in fact provides a mosquito repellent, but it evidently wasn't that effective.) The air-conditioning unit in the room was not connected.

Dinner was a disappointment, and had it been better this review would have been more positive.

Despite the character of this hotel and the courteous owners and staff we would probably try somewhere else when we're next in the area.

Old Hotel with broken furniture and dangers everywhere for the kids. Rooms not cleaned enough. In addition the owners of the Hotel have been extremely unpleasant.
