This is a very very tired hotel and in need of decoration, facelift and staff training. I stayed here mid week to film the battle of the Aisne/Marne/Mons prior to the 100th anniversary next year for battlefieldvideo.com. I arrived latre afternoon and even though the temperature was high 20s i wa\s told that they could not serve me a cold beer because of the law. Further enquiries revealed that their licensing only allows alcohol to be served when the restaurant is open and they are serving food. Fair enough. Thankfully my room, although very run down, was well equipped with aircon and windows that actually opened. These i soon had to close as the area was overrun with cats howling and fighting and relieving themselves where ever they wished. There was a constant smell of cats urine throughout the rear of the hotel. I found that whilst the directeur was on duty, the staff did try and help and were almost courteous, but as soon as he went off it was a different matter. my second evening there i was told there was no food in the restaurant (the directeur was NOT on duty) and that i would have to have an omlette. I asked for a ham omlette and was told that there was no ham and it was just a plain omlette that was available. Seeing the "chef" standing outside the kitchen picking his nose put me off, so i declined. At breakfast the next morning there was plenty of ham laid out for breakfast!!!!!!!
I have stayed at many Campanile hotels throughout France, and although they could not claim to have the friendliest and most helpful staff (i do speak French) i have never experienced such a run down establishment and such trucculent staff - NEVER AGAIN
