Booked this hotel based on TA ranking, and on arrival, it certainly looked to meet expectations - lovely old mansion surrounded by converted outbuildings with a great pool and plenty of free parking on site.
On being shown to our room, however, we were a bit overwhelmed by the decor - a mix of bold colours, traditional French furniture and fittings, with touches of Asian objets d'art and rugs. Unfortunately, the kitchen area had not been thoroughly cleaned, and my partner was ready to check out and find another hotel.
The manager checked and agreed it was less than acceptable, and offered us a different room in an adjoining building, which we accepted. This was an apartment, again with a small kitchen which was again, less than spotless. However, it was a holiday weekend so we stayed put this time.
Similar decor, a pokey bathroom with bath, but only a hand-held shower and no screen or curtain, no kettle for tea or coffee... can't call it good value at €250 a night.
Good location, a 5 minute stroll down to the shops, galleries and harbour of the old town.
