What our customers say
"Overnight stopover "
Always good, comfortable and convenient for our stopovers either coming home or going away.
Arrived late after a long journey from Toulouse. We were last in the restaurant but received very helpful, efficient and friendly service. As always, the evening meal was excellent. The bedroom is comfortable, clean, modern and functional and without unnecessary fol-de-rols; as good as any, including higher star hotels, that we have experienced.
