We were unfortunate to stay here as everywhere else was booked , the rooms were small (with shabby furniture and peeling wallpaper , the bathrooms (shower-rooms) , were terrible, small , dark , smelly , and un-maintained. Three room changes , and we were at the best the hotel could offer , if we had paid ?40 -50 for this hotel , I would have accepted the bad lot , but at ?75 a night , it was a total rip-off. Two of our party found much better ,cheaper accomadation two doors down. The night brought no heating (they had forgot to switch it on!), and no honesty bar . the weekend brought bad manners from the owners , complete disregard for his guests . I'm only thankful the rest of the city was much more hospitable , and hope that the French Rugy fans (hello!) staying there didn't think this is the best on offer - its one of the worst. On a positive note the breakfasts were very good.
