There are a lot of dated, shabby hotels in France, and some of them are charming. This is NOT one of them.
The hotel is downtown, in a good location, with parking available. Everything else about it is miserable.
Very unfriendly staff, and owners. The plumbing is a century old, and the entire ground floor smells like backed up sewage. The wifi is impossibly slow, and only works in the lobby, not in any of the (small, poorly lit) rooms! As if that weren't enough, the mattress is probably older than I am.
I'm very disappointed that I have to stay here another night and strongly recommend avoiding this place. (I can't believe they let themselves be featured on TA).
Although I am new to tripadvisor I have traveled extensively in France. I don't see how this place could receive a positive remark based on anything other than its location. If you have experience of other hotels in this price range, then you will likely be seriously disappointed.
