London, United Kingdom
December 24, 2003
My room was large, clean, rather spartan, decorated fairly recently in shades of pink, with a pastel quilt on the bed and matching curtains. Pillows like sandbags, but not as uncomfortable as I expected and I slept well. The large windows let in as much fresh air as I wanted. The en-suite bathroom was also large and clean, with lots of hot water and fresh towels every day, and soap dispensers by shower and hand basin. French-only TV encouraged me to sit back and catch up on my reading.
Not the cheapest hotel in Poitiers (those are all at the bottom of the hill, by the station), but very relaxing and fair value at 45 euro a night for a double room (no reduction for single occupancy).
