    Booking.com write-up says there is a restaurant on the premises. There isn't. What there is is a restaurant-type service where you can order a meal and it is brought in to the hotel. Limited choice on this menu. Not clear on the description. We were looking forward to "eating in" as we had our dog with us and did not want to leave her for very long.

    Nice breakfast

    Air conditioning was not working, reportedly because the heating system of the hotel was still programmed to winter regime althoug (being in May). Sink of shower was partly obstructed.

    Extremely kind staff. Good breakfast. Good location as close to old town. Public free parking was available in front of the hotel.

    Hotel appeared a little tired. The room was clean but communal areas were a little shabby. TV didn't work, and was quickly sorted but should have been checked before we arrived. No safety deposit box at reception or in our room.

    Lovely view of the river from room 218.

    Air conditioning didn't work. Uncomfortable beds. Lots of noise from outside - the windows had to be open due to the ineffective air conditioning. Always people and staff smoking on the doorstep of the hotel. No restaurant.

    The smell of cigarettes at the entrance and in the room. Both receptionists smoked at the entrance so residents had to walk through a cloud of smoke to get in the hotel. It smelt of smoke in the lobby. Smell of cigarettes in the room from people on floor above leaning out their window smoking. Breakfast was not good. Bread doughy, cereals not healthy, pancakes hard. Hotel is getting a bit run down. We would have preferred a higher floor than 1st floor. Told that 2nd and 3rd floors were smoking rooms!

    The bed was comfortable.

    The surroundings of the hotel were rather disappointing , even though the river looked great at night when illuminated. Beware that no one at the hotel speaks even schoolboy French, or understood our ( usually adequate French) so phoning for directions was an experience not to be repeated !! Website directions are from the North , not too useful when travelling from the South!!

    The room was comfortable. The shower was good, very good white towels, but the shower floor rather slippery. The bed was excellent. The staff were cheerful, even though they had almost no English.

    We stayed here one night as a stop-over returning from Spain. Very good location - the medieval town was just a 5 minute walk away and there was a secure underground car park right next door which only cost EUR5.5 to park from 6pm until 10.30 am. Would definitely use again if a similar stop-over is required.

    Restaurant not air conditioned! We survived and the manager explained that everyone's "clim" was on the verge of collapsing due to usual demands on the systems. It was 100F...Rooms are small. We had lots of luggage.
