“Good stay with a great host”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

Pierre made our stay comfortable and welcoming. We arrived several hours earlier than he had anticipated, but he was able to help with our bags (there is no lift and steep stairs) and then invited us for tea and biscuits while we settled the formalities. He always had great and often very funny stories to tell, and even got up at 5am on our last day to give us breakfast and coffee as we had an early train to catch. Beware that the upstairs does get hot and stuffy at night, especially the top room.The only negative we could think of was that the breakfast consisted of a croissant and bread roll with jam - some variation or some fruit/yoghurt would have been nice. To be honest though, if we had complained, Pierre would probably have popped out to the shop and brought some back! He even showed us the way to the laundromat one day (just round the corner). Very good time, and would definitely go back and recommend to anyone. Metro is close, less than 10 mins up a small hill. Thank you Pierre - we won't forget your hospitality. Jennifer and Yana.

The owner was friendly. The room was satisfactory. The previous evening the owner asked us what time we would like breakfast. In the morning there was no breakfast. We knocked on the owners door and actually woke him up. He said his alarms didn't go off. That was very unprofessional. We waited an additional 30 minutes thinking he was going to still provide the breakfast. He finally came out in the hallway and said he was sorry. He was on the way out the door himself. Probably to go get his own breakfast. We were disappointed and thought this was very unprofessional.

Booked this b&b on line.
When we arrived the outside of this b&b was so dirty and run down looking I refused to go in. My husband rang the door bell and went inside. The inside looked better than the outside. The rooms where large but dusty. The shower and toilets where clean. Bed was comfortable.
Breakfast consisted of 1 roll and 1 crossant each, cold coffee and extremely weak tea, the best bit was freshly squeezed orange juice. The dining room table was set amongst tatty chairs and rubbish, the owner sat with us and then went on about how his marriage had broken up - not what we wanted to hear about on a weekend away.
Some of the rooms are rented out to students but we didnt see any.
We managed to park the car fairly close to the b&b and left it there to walk into the city for dinner. It is walkable but a fair distance - we got a taxi back.
Would I go back - no but for one night it was adequate.
