    Food was very poor and overpriced for standard. The fish dish served for my main course was virtually raw. I suspect that it was cooked from frozen but not checked before serving. The mashed peas did not taste of peas at all and were more like powered mashed potatoe with green food dye added.

    Helpful reception staff

    The room was lovely with a good layout, fridge and kettle for tea etc. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and built a good rapport. When asking if we could take our dog into the restaurant they said 'of course, we absolutely love dogs!', which was so nice to hear. The food in the restaurant was very nice with a good choice, and for our stay breakfast was included in the price. Hotel has secure free parking opposite. If in the area we would definitely stay here again.

    Ate at restaurant and was really bad food. Their was 5 middle aged chefs on service which led me to believe food would be a good standard and supervised but it was like a apentice chef was serving, wrong things and missing things on plate and tasted like bad fish and complained but head waitress was rude about the whole thing and tried to make us pay, I was sick after and woke up to leave and head waitress still trying to make me pay, great hotels for hotel staff but restaurant let it down especially the restaurant staff which was a real shame

    Our twin room was one with a bunk above the beds. I knocked my head a couple of times when putting things on the bedside chair! There was plenty of clearance however when actually in the bed.

    We ate in a full busy restaurant with a good choice of meals. The menu du jour was very reasonably priced and both of us enjoyed it very much. The Parmentier de legumes starter was just delicious and the salmon with risotto excellent. We didn't benefit fully from the marvellous breakfast because we had eaten so well the night before but it was exceptional in the range of dishes available. The bedroom, we chose a twin, was comfortable and air conditioned. Everywhere was very clean and the decor lovely. We will go again.

    Location . It did not seem to be in a very nice part. But having said that as we did not venture out after driving all day, I could be wrong.

    Good selection of food for breakfast, and nice dinner in the restaurant. Room was basic but clean and had all the toiletries that were needed. Good size TV. Not sure how close to the town centre as did not go out. Good size bed , comfortable enough but not the best I have slept in. The car was in a locked compound beside the hotel . It was fine but not free. A small charge of 7 euros. The mini bar was quite well stocked with champagne and beer etc.

When we finished the main we have been waiting for 40 minutes for the desert ( we both ordered an ice cream with fruits) and after that decided to just go up to the room and we asked to send deserts up as I couldn't wait any longer watching everyone to be served apart from us I won't recommend that hotel the price was high for a night considering the service and the rooms the location wasn't the greatest as there was no restaurants near by so without the car journey you couldn't get anywhere
