The room was pleasant and the hotel has a real quirky charm. It is well located but is undoubtedly a budget hotel, so don't expect any more than that.
The owner put me in a cheaper room than advertised on Booking and then tried to charge the extra £20! Stay was two days and the room was not serviced during this time. When mentioned to the owner, his reply was "you just can't get the staff". Owner also refused to take credit/debit card as he said the machine wasn't working. Strangely it "wasn't working" when I stayed there in September '08 either! He would only take cash payment. With this, the unserviced accommodation and the attempt to charge £20 more than the room price advertised on the hotel door, I would not return.
Location was very good, easy access to shops, tourist attractions and transport. Very good value for money. Staff were also very welcoming and friendly.
Probably the only thing we found a problem was no internet access at the hostel.
Among almost every review of this hotel you can find "Friendly staff" - and this is 100% true. We were offered to stay in a better room that we booked for the same price as the room was free, and also received a lot of good advices about the places to visit, public transport, etc. Also the room was clean and comfortable, the hotel is located in an old-looking house in the town centre, so we had a very pleasant stay
We enjoyed that it was not very expensive and that we had a room with our own bathroom.
Two of our Mastercards were not accepted, the rooms were very dark even with all the lights on, and the closest parking spot was five or six blocks away
we requested a room with bathroom but was not available, hotel staff proposed us another hotel without problem
Convenient and central. The room faced into an airshaft and so was quiet. The linens were crisply clean and the staff friendly and helpful.
The place is falling apart. I was afraid we would fall through the bathroom floor - which was rotted out under the tiles, and most of the lightbulbs in the dining room were burned out. The hotel is justifiably inexpensive.
Hotel Du Bellay is just next door to the train station, and not far from the visitors' office also. it is very convenient for both getting there and getting around in the town.
it was noisy...i guess the the noise proof is not very good
Very friendly helpful staff, central location, clean and well serviced, historic building.
The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel is just on the edge of the centre and the place is very quiet. Also, there are some convenient restaurants in the proximity of the hotel.
As the hotel is in a very old building, our room was not really big.
Friendliness and helpfulness of the owner. Excellent internet access. Good value for the money. Good mattress.
