Dated, run down tired, shabby decor. Double bed was way too small and pillows were too flat. Breakfast was not good and not worth the money. Not good value for money and I would not book this hotel again.

I stayed here for three nights and the hotel met all my needs. I wanted a good, middle-of-the range hotel. Yes, my room's decor was dated but it was spacious, very clean with a large, comfortable bed and large bathroom. The free on-site car park was a huge plus for me as I simply left my car parked there for...

Looking through the photos of this hotel wouldn't show any concern. However, i found it hard to recognise, particularly the bedrooms. Dire. We arrived to find only three cars parked, this remained that way, a sign. The bedroom was outdated, uncoordinating, umcomfortable and unpleasant. THREE STAR??? More like MINUS THREE STAR! The room was very hot as there was no...

This is a quirky hotel with novelty features like a pool table in reception, otherwise you could describe it as a bit run down. The amateur make over can't hide the fact that there has been no major renovation for 50 years. That said the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Based on Trip adviser comments I choose not...

I stayed at the Magdalena on the 1st to 2nd September and the only good points were 1. The evening meal and the breakfast were reasonable AND 2. The hotel receptionist was very pleasant and polite. That however, is where the good points come to an end. Our rooms were in need of some updating. The reception area had furniture...

Our group stayed there returning from lourdes all 60+ nice hotel shocking rip off bar prices ie €10.50 for a small vodka. Told to leave the bar at 9pm as it then closed, yet they were passing drinks out to contractors who were staying there. The biggest upset of all was the nasty attitude of the wife of the hotel...

Hotel Magdalena is a diamond in the rough. From the outside it looks like a building from the old Soviet block. But do not be fooled, inside is a wonderful family owned hotel with great amenities with Bar, Restaurant and Lobby with a billiards table. We stayed here for the single purpose of visiting the final resting place of Saint...

Surprisingly spacious family room in a budget hotel, easy to find and ample parking Extremely comfortable beds just what's needed after a long drive Location good with supermarkets and restaurants nearby and a short drive into Nevers itself

If you have never had fine Greek dining, this is the opportunity to try. If you're looking for a gyro move on nor is it a pseudo "taverna...this is as fine a meal experience as eating in a 4 star Athens or Aegean restaurant. Milos is both elegant and Greek to its soul. A must is to tour the counter...

Our family stayed one night at the Brit Hotel Magdalena during a 21 day / 14 city vacation through France, Spain and Portugal. I had left making hotel reservations until the very last moment, so there were very few choices for accommodations. While this hotel was the least expensive of the 14, we were pleasantly surprised. The room was large,...
