Reviewed 1 June 2012

this is one of the typical overpriced small hotel rooms - rather say, combined shower-bedroom cot. Room was small, no air-con, and everything has the aura of being... well, primitive. If it were cheap, there would be nothing to complain about - around €15pp is acceptable. Yet, never the price they want; ridiculous. Breakfast is simple: 2 croissants, 2 chocolate croissants, 2 baguettes, confiture, coffee, orange juice (not freshly pressed of course). No yoghurt, no muesli, no fruits - never to speak of a hot breakfast at all. Again, acceptable for €4 or so - but you get a better one at BB hotel chain, for example. Not really a point to complain, as the French usually don't know anything about breakfast. Sleep quality rather bad because you can't darken the room (curtain too bright).
What else? Ah yes, bathroom was smelly, and extremely small (around 3 sqm). Nearly everything is cracked/damaged, from the mirror to the nightlamp.
Wifi stopped working at 22:00 and did not re-appear, not even the next day. Also, the Wifi reception in the room no. 6 was extremely low - lost signal many times.
Restaurant also has a funny smell - like the house of my grand-grandmother (or probably - like my grand-grandmother herself).
Finally, we tasted their "strawberry custard" (in the evenings), which tasted really good - and asked to buy something. Guess what, for approx. 150ml they wanted €9! Come on, even at Galerie Lafayette (a high-end food chain in France) I can get it for €4!
The location is: in the middle of nowhere. You definitely need a car and need to drive at least 9km to get to the next supermarket or anything else. Nothing, not even the smallest shop in the village. Sad, but true.
However, the hosts were very friendly, this is why we did not turned around immediately.

Room Tip: a good tip: run away as fast as you can. Get your room somewhere else.

This was a one night stop on the way between south France and the channel ports. The reception was friendly and efficient. The accomodation was far better than that expected from a 1 chimney Logis de France. The dinner was also well above standard for a 1 pot Logis de France. As we were travelling, we appreciated the efficient check out so that we could make an early start.

Room Tip: Vous risquez d'être refusé à l'arrivée même si vous avez déjà payé un acompte ! Etablissement a fuir !
