Very traditional French hotel with traditional rooms. We booked this hotel thinking it would be something differnt. It certainly was! No English spoken here so brush up on your French guys. The reception was friendly and our room was big and the bathroom was clean. We explored the town. Its very quaint with a few little shops and restaurants and lovely narrow, winding streets. We ate in the hotel restaurant. Food was good and unmistakably French. Overall loved it.
A friendly welcome, although the hotel only opened its doors at 17.00, a large & characterful room with good bathroom, and a delicious, excellent value dinner. Good to see the bar & restaurant full of locals. Breakfast was good with lovely little jars of homemade jams & preserves & a friendly, helpful waitress. In a beautiful, interesting village, the hotel has parking & a little garden. It would have been better if we could have checked in earlier, but this is the only criticism.
The place looked far less old in pics. The room was shabby but nicely sized and plain correct, the only problem is it was a "3rd" floor (roof) which was actually a 5th with NO lift and big old steps. Be ready for a LOT of extra exercise and for carrying your luggage as high as needed with no help. Breakfast was too simple for the price, basically bread, butter and tiny jams, the best is the croissant (1) you get. I finally choose to skip continental and ask for ham plus latte, a cheaper and more satisfying combination. The restaurant has a nice menu and carte and food is really good, though I didn't have the Aligot. Don't expect huge plates, they are medium sized. Staff are nice, but not really helpful with local info. It is basically a couple of brochures, nothing personalized or technical (l'office de tourisme was the same). They seemed puzzled by my little French and commented about it, but no one tried other languages (again, this happens everywhere in France). The region is really beautiful and would visit it again but would choose a place with a lift or less stairs!
We didn't stay in this hotel, but went to the restaurant which was excellent. It appeared to be run by 2 two staff (a chef and a waiter) who took great pride in their work. Don't be put off by the lack of an English menu, together will a little schoolbook french, some English spoken by the waiter and help from other friendly diners we managed to order a 3 course traditional French meal. Ensure you leave room for dessert which was out of this world!
For anyone travelling with a dog, our black lab was also made very welcome and was even given a drink before us!
