Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This hotel advertises itself with a photo of a swimming pool. What they dont tell you is that it is shut when the owner is not there. And he doesnt show up until 1630. In addition the hotel itself is jaded although OK, but no air conditioning means a hot sweaty night in summer. Restaurant is massively over priced. Go to the local town Varennes where there is a really nice Tunisian restaurant - better food and better prices.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Hotel very dated. Doesn't appear to have been decorated since the 70s. Food of mixed quality. would not recommend this hotel although in a good area.

    Met our needs and served our purpose

    Average ...... Rooms are ageing and dated - Bath tub in need of a good thorough steam clean. Served our purpose and met our needs.


    Would not recommend

    This property is not as it looks in its photos, the location is not good at a major rood junction truck noise is bad. Is location is 20 Kim's from a major town so you have to eat at the hotel you have no option. It is old and run down need a major reverb.

    Cons: It is very rundown

    Location: It is bad being our of town by 20 Kim's and at a very noisy road junction.
