Stayed for 4 nights at the end of July.
Room was very pleasant, although I'm not keen on metal framed beds we slept well enough. It was air conditioned which was terrific as the daytime temperatures got up to the mid-high 30's, although a reasonably quiet unit we turned it off at night.
Furniture was in keeping with the building and typically French.
The bathroom was large and a little dated but everything worked. No hairdryer and toiletries consisted of shampoo and a liquid soap dispenser.
The room (No 3 I think) window looked out over the lovely terrace.
Breakfast was served at table and was the same every morning, bread, cheese, jam, croissant and tea/coffee. We much prefer buffet style with choices and fresh fruit.
Evening meals were very good with good flavours and the menu changed each day. The chef seems to think that sticking a twig of rosemary in the main course makes it 'gastonomique'. It was good but not that good. We enjoyed the house Rosé wine with the hotel's label.
We asked about canoeing on the Ardeche and was given a recommendation that resulted in a 10% discount from Arch de Noe. We requested a packed lunch, which was good value and included a big bottle of water.
Car parking is on the road in front of the hotel on a first come first served basis, but we always got a space on our return. Watch out if it is market day/evening as it makes access difficult.
This is a 'typical' french hotel that needs to modernise its service and provide it's customers with that little bit extra. Having said that, we enjoyed our stay, and would stay here again if we were in the vicinity. Although we do prefer the Drome to the Ardeche as it is far less busy.
