    Air conditioning not adequate for need. Initially little staff concern about this but eventually were offered a change of room. This made little difference. With added parking and breakfast cost this became an expensive stay for the comfort provided.

    Location, modern fixtures etc, parking(although tight), good breakfast.

    The parking was not as close as expected but i found a free parking space in front of the hotel (at 22:00!!!) which was perfect. The breakfast was good but it can be improved.

    The hotel is new (i guess) and is well maintained. The room and the hotel in general is OK and the staff is friendly. The rooms are very clean, interesting furnished and arranged and the glass bathroom and shower area is very clean and interesting especially for a couple. For a family might be a bit problematic but they found a very wise solution with a nice white courtain The breakfast was good for a French hotel but can be improved to include other things.

    When we arrived at 17.00 the garage was full and we were directed to a secure multi-storey car park, where the hotel had special rates etc. As we were leaving a large amount in the car overnight we were not too pleased. However on checking at about 21.00 we found the car park locked and entry by special card only so we were reassured somewhat.

    Large room, very modern facilities & decor. English speaking reception staff who were very helpful. Location was in the centre close to shops and bistros so no problem with finding an evening meal.

    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    The overall décor is dark, grim, oppressive and uncomfortable. The grey/black corridors have low ceilings. None of the chairs are really comfortable to sit in. The room itself is very dark when you walk into it. Dark blue/brown/grey carpet and curtains. Dark wardrobes, desk and bedside tables. The curtains were closed, despite the fact that there was still bright daylight outside. When I threw open the curtains to let in the light, I was confronted with a view of a large abandoned window box with nothing but a weed growing in it! The three unusual pull-out wardrobes are heavy and difficult to access because you can only use one side of each at a time, and the lighting is poor, so it is difficult to see the colours of items stored in them. The bath is highly stylised and looks inviting, but is uncomfortable. The faucet is in the middle, so two people can sit in the bath facing each other, but it's not as generous as it at first appears, and the harshly angled ends do not encourage relaxation. The gym is awful. Dark, low-ceilinged and very small, with five machines, one of which was out of order. The breakfast offered a lot of choice, but the items we tasted were mediocre. (Scrambled eggs from powder, grey sausage and bacon, cheap smoked salmon, breads, coffee from a dispenser). Definitely not worth 18 Euros a head!

    At first, the trendy, stylised design with an emphasis on different, unusual chairs in plastic or velvet, mostly themed around roses, seemed interesting. The room and bathroom were large and the bed comfortable. The glass wall of the bathroom and the high quality bathroom fittings offer an initial sense of luxury. There is a separate private toilet with its own door. Service at the front desk was fast, friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfast area is bright and spacious, which is a relief after experiencing the rest of the décor!

    The climate control in our room was the worst I have seen for a long time. The windows would not open but the AC was kept high enough so it would not kick in. The shower had no vent and half the ceiling lights were hear-producing spot lights. So we kept half the room in darkness and slept on the bed all night without a cover. Bizarre for a 4 star hotel. Couldn't wait to get out to the fresh air.

    Modern spacious rooms. Huge bathroom (I've stayed in smaller single bedrooms!) Didn't really like how the cupboards opened, not your normal hinged or sliding left/right doors but you pulled the whole cupboards out which were on the heavy side. More stylish than practical. Really liked the fact the rooms were cleaned and made up whenever we left the room at any time of the day. Reception friendly and helpful but some had poor English for a 4 star hotel. Plat du jour at the restaurant was good value and the food was at a very high standard. Breakfast good but a bit over-priced. Lovely space to relax. Hmm, no English channels on TV! Tsk tsk the French eh.
