    Interesting but need a sense of humour, but useful location

    Apart from the room having no air conditioning in a violent thunderstorm, therefore the windows that worked needed to be open and the traffic noise outside was deafening, the bed was clean and surprisingly quite comfortable, although the shower needed some skill to use to effect - I would suggest 3 arms, one to hold the shower head in place, one to hold the inadequate curtain from flooding the place, the other for washing yourself unless one has the good fortune of having a partner to do this bit for you!

    There was not much to like unless 'dingy' is your forte, particularly if you arrive after 2100hrs when the doors could be closed on you, but the proprietor did telephone us for an ETA and as we were almost there, managed somewhat reluctantly to wait for us. We had driven 600 miles so it was tough to be precise on timing, plus there was a thunderstorm raging at the time! It was cheap though!

    Hot water took an age to arrive and then at very low pressure (the fact that I was on the 2nd floor may have had some bearing) The much lauded bar was closed and there was nothing much else to do in the evening.

    Private parking Easy to find Pleasant little town

    Rather old atmosphere. I did not mind, but perhaps not everyone's taste.

    Large comfortable room. Good beds. Roomy bathroom. Clean. Very friendly owner. Parking is in garage that is locked overnight. Otherwise you can easily park on the street nearby.

    I felt that this property was mis-represented on booking.com. The rooms are described as bright, modern and comofortable - oh and soundproofed. They were none of these things! The description also noted that the hotel is close to several excellent restaurants which, to my mind, meant that they were within walking distance. However, on enquiring, the manager was only able to come up with a kebab shop, a pizza takeaway and one restaurant which did turn out to be very good, but expensive. I felt somewhat let down as previous Booking.com descriptions have always been accurate.- suggest that the description is amended. The room decor was very dated and in some places they had not repainted after filling holes in the wall, the corridors leading to the room were gloomy and the breakfast room was designed to depress.

    It was close to the autoroute and easy to find.

    The facilities are very very old. There is centralized heating, but it was not on - so it was really cold. There is no lift, so we needed to carry our suitcases to the second floor.

    Location - close to Ambronay which we wanted to visit for its annual festival. Price. The man in the recepetion (probably the owner) was very nice and willing to help.

    Try to avoid a Wednesday night as every restaurant in town is closed except for a very over priced pizza restaurant opposite the hotel.

    A clean and comfortable but somewhat faded and old fashioned small hotel. Good value for money if you need somewhere to stay over for a night enroute.

    The soundproofing between rooms was pretty poor and the macerating toilet in the room was extremely noisy. All a bit dated but ok for the price.

    The owner was really friendly and helpful even recommending where to eat. The hotel is literally a minute from the motorway and had good double glazing so although it was on a main road there was very little noise from outside. It's very good value.

    The walls were so thin that you can clearly hear the people from the other rooms! It was like a nightmare hearing clutters at past midnight. Very audible! Lamps are too close to the bed that your head will hit on it amd remote of the tv doesnt work.

    The location is near shops but do not try the La Casa pizza nearby (rude staff), the hotel staff is friendly, and putting a double window to shut the noise of the roads is a plus
