May i first say that it is without doubt worth looking at reviews for any Hotel you wish to book, because had i not done so with this one i could have spent time trying to get into the pedestrian road it's in, without knowing there are bollards in place between 10am and 8pm everyday, and one way systems operating also.
Having found this out from previous reviews, i emailed the Hotel and had a quick reply as to parking in the square (3 minutes away) collected the fob and was given instructions to find the secure parking garage, which is further into the corner than the hand drawn picture depicts (again only 3 mins away).
The Hotel was fantastically located for the church sq where there are bars/restaurants, even "Le Welsh Pub" however it has french staff, with adequate english. A further 7 minutes up the "Grand Rue" which runs next to the square, there is also the walled area of the castle which again has plenty of bars/restaurants offering set menus from 12 euros to 50 euros and even a la carte.
Rooms are spacious without too much room nor making it cramped, bathrooms with twin sinks and a bath with 2 overhead showers for youngsters and adults (great idea).
Staff very helpful and friendly and even a typical french lift that just fits 2 people with a large case lol and everywhere spotlessly clean.
one downside! although the food for breakfast was continental and fresh & plenty of it, i have to say 11 euros each was a bit steep, you can get it a lot cheaper in the bars/cafes outside but then sometimes the joy of just coming downstairs each morning and eating in situ before you start your day makes it better than trawling the streets for somewhere to eat.
All in all a great hotel and we will be visiting it again shortly.
