This is a mid point ‘dash to the sun’ hotel ~ 4 hours to Cote d’Azure and 5 hours from Paris…
It is located in a kind of hotel cluster, with most of the French mid and lower range chain hotels represented. During my stay at the Mercure there were about 5 rooms occupied and the lack of friendliness of the front desk reflected this sorry situation. I am sure that in summer the hotel is full ~ it even has 2 tennis courts, but no pool.
The arrival reception was poor. My French is pretty average at the best of times, but it deserves more than grunts.
This said the décor, fittings and the bathroom are to a good standard.
The lobby/restaurant area is pretty basic, but the hotel management has tried to compensate with a good range of magazines (French), guides to local activities and an internet station.
The energetic Courtepaille directly outside the Mercure probably takes all the restaurant trade. See separate review.
