We stayed here for 3 nights - 2 double rooms on 6th floor. Relatively easy to find, there are dedicated parking spaces outside the hotel entrance but the surrounding area is not very salubrious. The rooms are fine and everything worked - this is a brand new hotel. The video on demand service is great and the flatscreen TVs offer lots of channels. Wifi worked well. The small rooftop pool is lovely with loungers, tables and chairs and a large Jacuzzi. They provide pool towels and robes on request - we did not try out the steam room etc but lots of French travellers were doing so. Unfortunately we tried to order lunch in the rooftop restaurant which took 50 minutes for 4 juices and more than an hour for 4 snack lunches! Only half the menu was available and no explanation was given as to why. Staff were untrained and kept leaving the restaurant so we could not complain to them - we were the only customers at the time. The Cafe on the ground floor was used for breakfast. Too small for a hotel this size. They ran out of tables, crockery, cutlery, glasses, not to mention food. The Restaurant Manager spent most of his time inside the kitchen trying to avoid complaints. For 3 days we resorted to clearing tables and hunting through cupboards to find plates and cutlery ourselves. The hot food cook did not understand "fried eggs" and only produced omelettes. The checkout process was lengthy as it took 3 people to perform this service; 1 to take the roomcards, 1 to print the bill and a 3rd to operate the card swipe. This could be a great hotel and I would consider staying there again, so long as I did not try to eat there. Do they do bed only??!!
