“Good motel for a couple of nights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2012

Motel is about 600 yards or so back from the main street, 800 yards from sea front in Ile Rousse. Very quiet road. Late season, not too many people in the place, plenty of car parking. Studio apartment with bathroom and small kitchen area, patio doors and small semi-private outdoor area. Good free wi-fi. Very reasonable price for the accommodation. Paperwork in apartment suggested we would pay for cleaning but we weren't charged.

No switches on the bedside lights - had to unplug them ! Large shelf above bed - kept hitting head on it, very badly on one occasion. Couldn't fathom the microwave at all, no English instructions.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

Photos provided by hotel do not really match the reality at least the basement room no 53. No daylight come in, beacuse the kitchen window faces to corridor and door in bedroom is hidden by pillars avoiding any view. Very simple and unatractive apartment. Feeling like dark cellar or garage. WC flushing button was broken. It is motel, but number of pakring slot is not sufficient - if came late, no pakring slot for you. Towels are for charge and 35€ for final cleaning is expensive. Wifi is only at reception and the signal is weak. The receptionist does not speak English at all - she was not able to tell a word in English, we were not able to discuss the room quality and possible room change. Hundreds ants run on veranda. TERRIBLE QUALITY for the price of appx 700€/week. What I am suggestig, do not settle for the ground apartment. /hopro_prg

Room Tip: Do not stay in room no 53 ! The first floor rooms better

Dear sir,

Why didn't you mention that you arrived early whereas we usually welcome customers at 5pm, and that you were given n. 53 because it was the only one that was immediately available? The reception opens at 5pm, the employee speaks English and since you arrived early the cleaning staff took care of your arrival. The residence was full, it was impossible to move afterwards. Why didn't you mention that n. 53 is equipped for disabled persons and complies with UE standards? Besides it recently was visited by the services in charge of ratings and thus was rated 3-stars. People reading this will appreciate the subjectivity of your comments which can easily be questioned. The 35€ cleaning charge is a minimum for cleaning the n. 53 after your departure. The price you paid for the week was 560€ and not 700€. One more thing: I can speak English!

JP Cardi, Manager.
