Basic but friendly

The hotel is similar to many French hotels in small towns - basic but clean and comfortable with friendly and helpful staff.

Disappointing. Not Logis 3 star

How this hotel gets a 3 star Logis rating is beyond comprehension. It is very dated and in desperate need of redecoration. Room was ok and had been redecorated, but without any flair or imagination. On a more positive note, there is secure storage for cycles and the fixed price menu was very good, albeit in a dining room that was so brightly lit, it felt like an operating theatre. The hotel is in a central location but needs refurbishment.
