This hotel contains possibly the least friendly staff in France. They seem incapable of dealing with even the siomplest of requests and frequently discriminated against us during our stay due to our young age. They also appeared to be resentful of the fact we were unable to speak terribly good french
In addition to this they also felt it necessary to close the pool due to the fact that we had walked near it without removing our shoes. Our shoes were then taken from the poolside and positioned elsewhere, without our immediate knowledge.
The hotel itself is less than acceptable. The rooms are incredibly small, often dirty and not worth the (rather low) prices that they charge. Cutlery was missing from the apartment that was rented to us, and the cooking appliances frequently malfunctioned, resulting in a power cut to all residents in the same side of the hotel as us. The management seemed loath to fix this.
I would not recommend staying in this hotel if you can at all avoid it.
