Smells damp rendering come off the walls
The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the restaurant food good value although the menu is limited - similar to menu ouvrier lunch time set menus. Breakfast was very good with a good selection. Bedroom small but very clean.
The double bed is 'standard' size and as a big person used to a larger size bed I found it cramped, should have asked for a twin room - my fault not the hotel's!! The outside of the hotel looks a bit run down but inside it is well decorated and modern. The hotel faces the docks and a large lorry park where there are freezer lorries parked, these have motors running all night so with windows open as it was hot (no air con!) it was a bit noisy. But this is a budget hotel not the Ritz so not really a complaint, more an observation by me.
The manager was very accommodating as we had booked three twin rooms but he let us have six single rooms at no extra charge. It was very clean and the rooms had a modern feel. Close walk to the WWII submarine base.
Location was chosen as it we very near the submarine base we had planned to visit, looked very nice on the web site but was located adjacent to a busy industrial estate and looked a little run down from the outside, nice and clean inside with staff happy to help. Breakfast was a little bit expensive at 8 euros but it was nothing out of the ordinary, typical continental breakfast.
We had previously asked to be given a quiet room and were told that all rooms were quiet. This was not the case. The walls seemed paper thin meaning that there was the sound of furniture being moved around a lot of the time, a couple adjacent were having a 'heated discussion' until 1am and we heard EVERY word. It sounded like there was someone playing a drum kit above us and in some other adjacent room it sounded like someone had a power tool workshop. Added to this was the tiny bedroom; the only place that 2 slim adults could pass each other was near the door. The hotels own description of a 'harbour view' is misleading. They fail to explain that the view is actually the back of crumbling dock side buildings that were built by the Germans during the second world war. There is no view where you can see water in a harbour.
In middle of an industrial estate ideal for lorry drivers
