“Second visit probably won't return again.”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

After visiting last May for the price I recommended to stay but have now changed my mind. The biggest issue was check in, a sign indicates check in opens at 4, however this turned out to be 5pm. A sign indicates that if a receptionist is not there to go to another hotel, this would work if someone was there to check you in, but there wasn't. The receptionist was rude and aggressive and is really in the wrong job. My recommendation would be room 2, as all the other rooms are really small. Unfortunately we slept in a room on the first floor where a couple were making enough noise several times a night to indicate the walls are not that thick. Rooms are fine and at the price what can you expect? I think I may just go somewhere more personal in the future.

We were on a cheap pre Christmas escape and were pleased to find that 4 nights at this hotel were a real bargain. We expected a slightly jaded, scruffy room and were delighted find a spotlessly clean, well decorated ground floor room, which to our surprise opened out onto a garden! Our 4 fluffy towels were changed daily and the little shower room was spotless.The reception was very friendly and helpful and didn't mind us having just a coffee for breakfast.Its location was so convenient for many restaurants, bars and shops, which all looked fantastic with all the Christmas lights and decorations on.We shall definitely try to stay there again soon.

Room Tip: No tips, just trust the Management!

Good location with free parking in a street with a good mixture of restaurants and bars. Rooms are a little small but ok for this price for a night or two, very clean!! Close to ferry port.
Would definitely stay again!!

Don't be put off by the exterior. We had a room on the ground floor for two nights with a little garden. It was extremely clean, just the right size and the hotel has a nice atmosphere. There's a lot of effort gone into the decor, even though it doesn't all match! The location is perfect, on a quiet street just off the centre square with all the bars, restaurants and boulangeries and the market just down the road on a Saturday.
Very quirky, comfy and clean. The only tiny complaint is the adjoining door slams shut when it's opened. Definately worth the money we paid.

Room Tip: Room 2 on the ground floor. It has a french door out into a little garden.

We stayed one night here, right near the centre of town, very convenient. Clean, good bed & shower. Basic but good.
All the rooms are upstairs, maybe not so handy if that is a problem.
Breakfast was good but coffee wasa bit bitter.

Don't be fooled by the uninviting look from the front of the hotel or the dark brown paintwork up the stair case. or even be put off by the fact that you cannot check in before 5pm . The room we stayed in was basic, decent furniture but clean and we got what we payed for . That is a budget overnight stay that we will use again. Parking was easy and free. Didn't bother with breakfast
,at 9 euro for basic continental breakfast too expensive. chris
