We were travelling back from La Rochelle, and stopped for an overnight stay at this hotel.
Parthenay itself is a little bit sad, but there was a music festival in the town which brightened our stay. The old ancient area is the best.
However, Hotel Du Nord, can be described as excellent. It is a typical country Logis, and our room, no 1 was fine. Nice size, comfortable, clean, good bathroom, but the shower was a problem.
The people were great, very welcoming, and the dining experience is one not to miss. Do not consider eating elseware.
The breakfast, held in the bar was good, not to much choice, but beautiful bread and jams, nice coffee and tea.
The owners could not be more helpful.
If you are passing Parthenay, this is the place to either stay, or eat.
