The hotel looks like an old station hotel in France but it backs onto the river and has a lovely position near the centre of town. Car parking is over the road. It was a hot night and France had just won their latest World cup match and we had a road side room, so we had to choose between extreme heat and extreme noise. Unfortunately the room had been rented out to a dog owner a few days previously. some hair and some little jumping friends had been left behind. The room had not been cleaned well and the fleas were on the 'counterpane' If any survived my attacks they did not bite!
The hotel was full and breakfast overwhelmed it, The coffee machine kept failing to grind the beans and the breakfast room overflowed into the bar.
The receptionist was exceptional, she spoke at least three languages and dealt with breakfast customers with confidence and aplomb, even some irate Australians were calmed by her. But the hotel staffing was not set up to deal with a 'full house'. and definitely one struggling coffee machine was inadequate.
It was a low priced hotel
