Reviewed 2 October 2012

my wife and I were introducing some friends to the wonders of France and this was our first overnight having spoken to Natalie by phone and booked dinner
I don`t want to be too critical but it was a thoroughly unpleasant experience from the moment we walked in there was no greeting just ` how many cars have you parked in our parking area at E6 per night` no offer to help with our cases to our awkward 2nd floor room despite the obvious mobility issues.
we came down to dinner to discover the regular dining room was not in use so we were ushered into the bar area where we asked to see the prix fixe menu as per their web site and my conversation with Natalie. there was only an a la carte menu and when I reminded them of their advertised E 28 Natalie explained that this was discontinued 9 months earlier.` so why haven`t you removed it from your web site?` we haven`t had time was the response.
Natalie snatched the menus from our hands and told us to go elsewhere to eat. sadly she was most unpleasant and a disastrous intro. to France for Maria & Ian. we ate at Les Ramparts opposite and were treated like welcome guests. the sooner Natalie retires from the hospitality forum the happier visitors to France will be Dr Mrs Brian Silverstone London sept 2012

This Hotel has obviously had a glorious past, yet is overdue for a "Makeover" in parts.
The receptionist was very stressed when we arrived and although we requested a non smoking room told us that we must not smoke in it, then repeated it just to be sure, so "Smokers Beware"!
It was worth struggling past the not so warm welcome, as it then got better :-
The room was very nice and spacious with a large comfortable bed, bathroom spotless with quality linen and toiletries.
The dining room which we were shown into was like something from Alo Alo !
Walls had peeling plaster.
The food was very good , and the value for money could not be criticised, except for a very small
glass of very average wine for 5 euro .
The breakfast buffet was the best we have ever seen in France and the lady on duty for this
incredible spread could not have been more charming, so we departed happier than we were on arrival.

First stayed here 40 years ago.Wonderful wine as it is in the best area. Used to be a massive automaton music machine in the dining room. There is a special night in France when they celebrate the Lily of the valley flower and a young girl sold us a bunch for one franc.My wife has now passed on but I have wonderful memories of the nights we stayed there on our trips to and from spain by car. Happy times and well recommended.

Stayed one night at the beginning of our holiday. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. For France, the bed was big and extremely comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. I was also impressed by the provision of cotton wool face pads in a 3* hotel.
There was one problem. When we arrived we were told that in the summer months guests are expected to eat dinner in the hotel restaurant. We did not want to do this and had already booked somewhere else for dinner. When we looked again at our confirmation email this information had been added at the end, in French small print. The rest of the email had been in English and there is no mention of this condition anywhere on the hotel website. We were 'let off this once' quite sternly by the receptionist, but I don't think the hotel actually has any right to impose this and it is rather sharp practice.

The hotel was good! it was a nice area and lots of places to go to. The rooms were fine but everytime a car or lorry went past, it made a loud noise and the beds shook abit. The bathrooms were abit creepy when your on your own but it was very clean and the room was very clean. The staff were very friendly and speak english so we could understand. When we got up the breakfast was very nice, it was a buffet where you could get your own stuff. Didnt like the coridoors,had a funny smell and were abit freaky. It was a really good hotel, nice staff, in a good area and nice food:)
