    The cuisine was absolutely superb

    Vehicle parking needs to be more controlled (and supervised). Very limited space available.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    VG location, very helpful staff, rooms very very small and no elevator in our wing

  • Couple
    8.8

    Location is perfect. Just around the corner there is the castle and cathedral, and both two vibrant areas with shops and restaurants are a 3-minute walk... Staff is perfect, they have genuine smiles and tend to help everything. Without a business center, they even helped me to print/scan/email from the reception (thanks Brigitte)...

    Breakfast could be a bit better for a French city.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The position of the hotel for anyone who likes both sightseeing and shopping is excellent. Although the hotel has its own restaurant and bar there are lots of alternatives nearby its location. The breakfast was excellent providing a wide range to suit all tastes (even bacon and sausages). There is a small parking area (limited to approximately 11 cars) which is available on a first come first served basis. We arrived at around 16.30 and there were just 5 spaces left so arrive early if this is important for you.

    During our one night stay there was extensive upgrading of the exterior of the hotel ongoing which limited the small parking area and hampered access to a degree. The work will be completed soon.

    The location of the hotel is superb and its reception staff has helped us a lot with planning our city walks. We have found a placement of the bathroom in the room (devided only by a moving door/screen) very practical and really original. Perfect was also a possibility of making tea/coffee in the room (electric kettle, cups, bags of tea/coffee).

    The breakfast for 16 EUR/person is high overprised.

    location, management staff, breakfast and facility for parking.

    sitting on toilet virtually impossible due to lack of leg room, in both rooms we experienced. arrogant maitre 'd

    We liked the location of this hotel.Also,breakfasts were good with cereals, fresh fruit,a selection of breads and cakes,yoghurts and good coffee and a selection of teas.Our room was clean and had an excellent safe.

    We had booked a standard double but the room was small and the bathroom very small...As we were staying for 4 nights this was disappointing.Also,we were put in the annex which had scaffolding as work was being done when we were there and there was some noise..The lift wasn't big enough to accommodate both of us and our 2 cases at the same time. I would recommend this hotel for its location and good breakfast if staying for 1 or 2 days but don't think the standard room is big enough for longer stays.

    It was nice and central. It was open and avaible on a Sunday. It was pleasant

    It was not exciting and the restaurant was not open (didn't matter - there was one quite close but we were not in the mood for hunting a restaurant)Would recommend it but not enthusiastically
