The Hotel it's self was very nice, and most of the staff were very helpful.
The food was appalling! even the simple food options were done to an extremely low quality, and i'm a student so i don't exactly have high standards.
They seem to have forgotten that they are in fact IN FRANCE, but preferred to serve curry instead. When asking one of the cooks ( they are not chefs)he simply replied " all our clients are British". Even if this is true they seem to have lost the memory of their flight over to FRANCE!
DO NOT BOOK ROOM NUMBER 22! This room is right next to where the staff stay. This means that i was woken up numerous times, one notable time was by someone sing Miley Cyrus with a guitar- maybe if they had chosen their songs more carefully i wouldn't have minded so much. I also was awoken at about 3am with someone who genuinely thought my room was there one ( maybe one to many that night).
But apart from that great location and great staff!
