Reviewed 16 August 2012

I stayed 4 nights in a twin room with my daughter and paid €236 Plus €8 each for continental breakfast, fresh croissants and good coffee. On they way out of UK I 'lost' my pain medication in the x ray unit at Stansted a French friend rang the hotel and explained that I needed to see an English doctor that day, the owner took me to the Surgery next door to the hotel explained my predicament and got me an appointment, the Dr was thorough and spoke impeccable English he gave me a thorough check up and wrote me up for my Morphine, the hotel explained where to get it from in town. Most excellent service xxxxxx

This is a basic but clean hotel right next to a good restaurant. The owners seem to have been doing it up themselves so some areas are unfinished and our room had been adapted to build in an en-suite. It is let's say, a little quirky. There are air conditioning controls but they seemed to be just for show. The breakfast was very basic. The cost was 76.70 euros which is more expensive than the budget Etap Hotel chain. It is a few minutes walk from 'La Cite' but on a main road.

I really liked this hotel. 5 of us stayed here in 3 seperate rooms. It's within walking distance of everything you need. The owners are very friendly, accomadating and as stated have limited English, but more can speak more english than I do French.
Great location
Clean
We never ate in the hotel
Can't fault it for the price

This hotel is a typical low end hotel in Europe. Nothing special, but nothing really wrong with it. The beds were comfortable, and it was clean enough. The air conditioning was barely adequate, the "controls" were a sham. Breakfast was way over priced, opt for one of the lovely bakeries nearby. The owners were friendly, but their English was limited.

Room Tip: Don't buy the breakfast

The hote is located within walking distance from the train station and the medival castle. We arrived late and the owner left a note for us at the front door with instructions on how to get in. The owners are super friendly and gave us directions on how to get around. They even let us borrow an umbrella. The only downside was the room faced to main street so it gets noise from the traffic.

Why is it that all French Hotels of a certain age have sloping floors? This one was no different, it does add character to a perfectly adequate, clean hotel right on the edge of the town centre and about 15-20 mminutes from the Cite Medievale. The room had been decorated and further renovation/investment was underway in the shape of a/c to add to comfort in high summer. Although the rooms face out onto the main road, we found it quite quiet and easy to park at night. Breakfast was OK and plenty of it too.
We looked cat several places including Logis de France before choosing this one and would have no hesitation staying here again. Room rates were also acceptable. Car parking is on the street outside.

They put me in the room with the bedbugs and still wanted 59 euros when I showed them a specimen I'd squashed.
