“Shabby!”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

This B&B is way below par from others that we stayed in. Our room was shabby and tired looking; there are motion detectors in toilet and washroom rooms that were always going off/on. It was very uncomfortable to know our room was not secure as there was no lock on door into our room and only a portable screen separating our toilet from the rest of the house! It's hard to put a lock on a moveable screen! While arrival time is 17:00, we did not find out until day before that owner could not be there and would have daughter meet us at 18:00 and she arrived late. Keys to house were left with neighbor, but neighbor was not told how to open automatic gate in order to reach front door. Terrible way to run a business. Had we not already paid in advance, we would have gone elsewhere!

Room Tip: Be leery of paying in advance. If something goes wrong you maybe stuck.

Reviewed 13 May 2013

Like the previous reviewer said, there were some surprises. The room is on the lower level of the house, and unlike Booking.com stated, it does not open onto the garden. The room doesn't have a lock, which was a bit disconcerting. There is a lounge area with a tea kettle, fairly large bedroom with a comfortable bed and a large shower. Breakfast was N'espresso coffee, croissants and nice jams. Hard boiled eggs, cheese and fruit would have been nice additions. Everything was very clean. The upstairs living room and outdoor patio (where you can sit for breakfast in warm weather) is tastefully furnished. Parking is on the street. It's a 20 min. walk into the center, so the location was convenient.

Overall, this was fine for one night. The owner is very gracious and helpful.

Room Tip: Only one room in the home; it's on the lower level.

Sorry about the lock, but there is one! Nobody ask me about it because ... there is only 1 room in the house and only you and me (and my daughter) live at home ...

I'll see with Booking about the room "open onto the garden", yes it's a mistake, it will be changed.

I serve french breakfast ... next time, if you want more, ask more?

Thanks to give your opinion about La Maison de catherine :)

Very surprised that this place was only one room in a lady's house, but we had one pleasant night's stay as a stopover on a journey south.

The accommodation is about 20 mins walk from the city centre, Catherine was very helpful providing us with a map, directions and some interesting buildings to look at on the walk.

The breakfast was excellent, fresh bread, jam and croissants.

Parking was available on a side street across the road.

Overall a good stay, but slightly unexpected that it was basically someone's spare bedroom!

Thanks to give your opinion about my house.
The principle of a B&B is legitimately to be in a "lady's house". Sorry to organize only 1 room ... promised when I'll can I'll organize a second room in my house!
You appreciated the room and its localization, the breakfast, the city ... that's the most important.
