For the cost it’s not value for money
Arrived at hotel at 14.10 to find hotel closed and a note on door saying “closed until 17.00” we called a number left on the door and after pleading with the lady she returned 20 mins later. We checked in and were charged a few euros more than that stated on the booking. We were so tired after driving from the uk we just paid and went to the room. On a positive note the restaurant next door is excellent. There is also a very good wine shop one door along from the restaurant.

OK for overnight enroute stop - in cool weather
An OK place to stay for an overnight en-route stop. Pretty basic room but acceptable. Dog-friendly (for 8 Euros). Insist on full payment on check in. No air conditioning or fan - which, given the 30C day temperature, made for a suffocatingly hot room overnight - couldn't open the external door/window as this would have opened the (ground floor) room to any intruder. In consequence, we had a very poor night's sleep. On the positives - easy parking and short drive into the city centre.

Good off motorway overnight break
Pleasant hotel well situated for a overnight break when driving, near a main North South route. Room showed signs of age, but was comfortable. Breakfast typically French but plentiful and buffet well laid out.

Je déconseille
Quand vous arrivez à la réception, il y a une odeur de renfermé. Il y a des volets en bois de cassé ! Ce qui fait une désagréable impression en arrivant. Même emplacement pas terrible pour visiter le centre ville à pied que quatre hôtels dans le même coin : Campanile, formule 1, ONice hôtel et comfort hôtel car vous marchez le long d un boulevard très passant. Par contre en voiture c est à 10' du centre ville. Décoration vieillote, salle de bain refaite et bien. Litterie correcte mais le tout est gâché par un propriétaire antipathique qui ne parle pas et qui fait le strict minimum. J ai ouvert une porte de manière anodine et ce monsieur m a humilié me disant que je n étais pas chez moi et tout le reste comme s il attendait de pouvoir faire des histoires... Ce n est pas ce qu on attend d un commerçant. Je ne recommande vraiment pas d autant que les chambres sont plus chères que les hôtels à côté.
