What our customers say
"Short 2 night stay "
Accommodation was very clean, food was superb great choices offered , staff were very friendly and accommodating
All suplies you wish for a one night stay are there: good beds, clean room, wifi, airco and good shower
"Ideal overnight stay in a journey with dog"
Compact but comfortable room and shower. Travelling with a dog and I was given a ground floor room as requested which was very helpful. Easy parking right outside. Perfect!!
"Short overnight stay"
For a single overnight stay the room is great, clean, bright with aircon. All adequate, although small on space. The hotel itself could do with better signage as we drove past it twice. Great simple breakfast, lots of choice and plenty to eat. Pleasant staff for check in. Quiet and peaceful outside garden space for the evening. In all a great budget overnighter.
"One night stay"
Room a little small but the bed was lovely and big. I requested a ground floor room as there is no lift - next time I will ask for a disabled room as the shower was so small I could not move round in it at all and certainly could not bend down to wash my legs and feet. The breakfast was excellent as I am diabetic and the cheese and eggs were certainly welcome, normally other b&bs only give you jams etc.
"All you need"
The hotel was clean, neat and had everything we needed for a one night stop on the way through France. There was an option to eat at the restaurant next door, but we walked into the center of the city and had a good meal. It's about a 20 minute walk to the old center, but definately worth it.
"Good privé quality"
Verry good breakfast
"Good location, right off the highway, friendly staff"
Very easy and uncomplicated check in over the phone as we were only able to arrive at the hotel after the 9:00 pm closing time. One of the two Amélie was very nice and helpful over the phone. We only met the other Amélie personally the next morning at breakfast. She was very friendly as well and was constantly replenishing the breakfast items and clearing the trays. Thank you both for your great service!
Very pleased with the service and accommodation. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable at a very reasonable price. I would certainly visit again.
