We stayed in this hotel a week ago, for one week.. We had stayed there in past years also. The room over looked the river, it was lovely to wake to the sound of the water in the morning.. It had a little balcony which was nice. The room was quite basic, I was going to move but the other rooms on offer were similar, bigger but without the river view. .
I think the room would have been more comfortable if the wooden floor had perhaps a nice comfortable rug to put your feet on when stepping out of the bed.
The bathroom was disappointing ,as while it had a bath it did not have a real shower, just a removable shower head. Towels were very small and poor quality but you get used to all that.
However that aside, the hotel is very cute, it has a lovely little pool and dinner is taken outside by the river, at night, weather permitting.The town is very quite but it depends on what sort of a holiday you are looking for. We like the peace and would rather there than in busy Biarritz.
My only little disappointment with the hotel was that while the staff who served in the hotel were very nice and very efficient, the owners were rather unfriendly. We passed the chef himself ( who by the way produces amazing food, beautifully presented and very good quality )several times a day yet he barely acknowledges or speaks to you. i think that's a pity. I would not want to get into conversation but a greeting and a smile would not go astray and I think it makes guests feel good.
All in all though I would return especially for the meals.
