By no means a chateau and nothing in common with Versailles, but the best thing about this hotel is its very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Le Boudoir is a pleasant room in which to sit and where breakfast is served. There are few conventional tables and chairs to make this a good venue in which to eat and some families were perched on easy chairs, or on settees at coffee tables. There is not nearly enough space for the number of rooms in the hotel and if you are not there when breakfast starts you may well have to wait for a space. Breakfast is brought in from the hotel over the road as there appears to be no kitchen or cooking/food preparation area at this hotel. Having said that the breakfast was very good: fresh fruit, juices, tea/coffee, bread, pastries/croissants, cheese, cold meats and hard boiled eggs. There is also tea available to help yourself to between 2.30 and 4.30 each afternoon. Bedroom was of a low to middling standard and a lot less good than I'd expected. It was gloomy with dark mustard painted walls, dark and old carpet, and curtains that were skimpy enough not to meet properly. There was no antique furniture: just old and relatively modern. Only one of the two windows opened, and that only a small amount at the top. It was a claustrophobic room, despite being a good size, and generally 'tired'. However, the bed was comfortable (although may be likely to collapse soon due to wobbly metal feet!) the linen fresh, and there was plenty of hot water. The head of the bed was a wooden board screwed to the wall - at a drunken angle. The air conditioning was virtually non existent. There was supposed to be some but you really wouldn't have known or been able to detect any unless you stood directly under the air vent - it didn't actually cool the room. The stairs to room 401 (no lift) were broad with tired, faded carpet, chipped paintwork, passing windows with net curtains but no proper curtains. As there is no restaurant it is not possible to get an evening meal here. There is 'room service' which consists of a very limited menu - food is prepared at the hotel and restaurant over the road and carried across on trays.
So, more of a run down B&B in need of updating and redecoration.
