Actually a nice hotel. Unfortunately, I was not received very friendly and was trying to give me a worse room, in the side building overlooking the garbage cans. Breakfast was awkward. Everything had to be ordered individually and exactly described the day before.

Sadly, breakfast provided was disappointing. Whilst I understand the intention was to limit contact between guests, the fruit and yoghurt provided was inadequate as there was no starch or protein included other than a tiny tub of yoghurt.

Room is neat, clean and well equiped. It is just on a busy main road, which make it very noisy. Also, on the website it shows a very nice breakfast, but we did not get that at all!!!! The breakfast was brought to our room the day before but NO bacon, eggs etc as per the website. Very disappointed. And no microwave to heat anything. For a 4-star, not impressed.

Accueil peu chaleureux, confort relatif, les chambres ont besoin d'un coup de jeune car décoration vieillotte et tristounette. Les salles de bains sont à moderniser et l'éclairage à revoir. Non seulement nous n'avons pas eu la chambre que nous avions réservée mais on nous a fait changer de chambre après la 1ere nuit sous prétexte qu'elle était pour 3 personnes
