The lady manager in this hotel is the French equivalent of Basil Fawlty of the Fawlty Towers TV series. Guests are an annoyance to her busy day. Even a simple request such as asking for the WI-FI code results in being told "come back later I am very busy". The reason they were busy is because they were reduced to a skeleton staff and were decommisioning the hotel for the end of the seaspn. We were there on 2nd October and closurer date was to be mid November. Lights were turned off resulting in most of the lounge and ground floor area being in darkness, the dining room was closed, and most of the ourdoor furniture had been stacked inside. As frequent travellers to Europe we are well aware that in some resort areas hotels close at the end of a season. But, this was more than 6 weeks prior to the official closing date and there was still guests in the hotel. A request for a recommendation for dinner brought the following response "just read all the menus and make your own choice".
