Le Consulat
Ranked #2 of 4 Auch B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 August 2014

This is a sad story to tell about a French B&B which may have had better times in the past. To begin with the hosts where not present when we arrived, although we had indicated our arrival time as about 6 pm and arrived only 15 minutes before six. The narrow one way street does not allow any stop, so that we had to park our car at a public parking on the next square and to carry our luggage from there.

Our spacious room at the first floor was furnished with antiques, and had a nice view. The French breakfast was alright and the location in the middle of town perfect.

Unfortunately, the rest of the house was in a state of decay and neglect I have never experienced before. Broken window panes, bare light bulbs, a vacuum cleaner on the staircase and a broken ceiling to name but a few details while we learned that the host was the great grand son of a French nobel prize winner. The same room at the same place in another house would have been fine. At the present state we felt most uncomfortable at Le Consultat.

Madame,
Monsieur,

Je suis heureux que la chambre et le petit-déjeuné vous a satisfait, n'est ce pas ça le principal dans un B&B ?
Je suis conscient que la cage d'escalier puisse "choquer" des gens c'est la dernière pièce de la maison qui me reste à restaurer, cela fait 14 ans que je restaure cette maison, 4 ans pour la charpente et la toiture!
Personnellement, même si je vais la refaire un jour, je trouve que ma cage d'escalier a beaucoup de charme ainsi, souvent des clients me dise de ne pas y toucher, de la laisser ainsi, que ce serait dommage de faire du faux vieux alors que là la patine est réelle.
Je suis désolé d'être arrivé à l'heure et pas en avance, je suis toujours là au moins 30min en avance, mais là, un impondérable a contrarié mon dessein.
Je précise pour finir, que c'est un hôtel particulier du XVIIIéme siècle avec son charme et que la perfection n'a aucun charme. Faut il encore y être sensible.
Sincèrement désolé que votre séjour chez moi ne vous est pas convenu, mes remerciements pour votre commentaire qui va me permettre d'améliorer les choses.
Benjamin.
