Upgraded to a larger sized room and the room size was fine. Location terrific. But the room smelled extremely strong of air freshener (presumably to cover a sewage type smell). The separate toile... more

Dear Madam, dear Sir, We thank you for taking time to write this review. We are please to read that you have enjoyed our location and the size of the room. We would like to apologize for the perfum of air freshener. However, it is an ecological product without benzene, chloroform and formaldehyde, so it does not contain chimical and toxic substances. We choose this product because we are certified Ecolabel Européen since 2010. We try to reduce our impact on the environnement with differents actions : using of energy-saving light bulb, using of recycling sorting, a green library provided for our customers and organic food and Fair trade products served during breakfast. Our team is also formed and made sensitive in the environmental protection in particular in the reduction of the use of cleaning supplies. We sincerly regret that you did not find what you were expecting at the breackfast buffet. We have two kind of ham, bacon and saucisses, four types of cheeses, scramble and hard boilled eggs. We also have a lot of organics products, for example : milk, jam, honey, yogourt, apple, bread, tea, ketchup and home made cakes. We try to improve our buffet every days, so to make it better, wich kind of salty meats would you like ? About the leaving room, we were slightly surprised because we have two big seats and a web corner with high-speed Internet connection where you can have coffe or just read the news papers. Please consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with superior service. You can reach us directly at 0556481035. Sincerely, Anne-Valérie Patte Assistante de direction

Dear sirs, We are grateful that all of those good comments encouraged you to book our hotel. Guest reviews are our first "best sellers", that's why it is important to care. We wish that many of people will be convinced too. We are happy to read that you enjoyed your stay, especially our room service dinner. Even if we are located straight in the center and surrounded by many restaurants, the room service is well appreciated by each person who wants to eat something on the go while working for instance. Thank you so much, we hope to see you again soon ! Truly yours, F. Auriacombe Manager
