Disapointing French stay in Hotel Escatel,Macon Fr
No staff or availability of food on a Sunday night !

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Hotel was different as they do not have a receptionist after hours and you have to use a machine to check in. Was a little confusing and does not allow you to interact and or get questions answered if you arrive late. Night enterance could use more lighting for security and safety reasons. Lights in the stairs did not work but they had place a lamp to help until it could be fixed. Beds and pull-out beds were very comfortable, linen was nice along with towels. Breakfast in the morning was very fresh and plentiful. Place has tons of potential and during a busier time it looks like it would be great to stay at. Staff was very nice

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
Not quite as expected. Room was small but clean, as was the linen. Restaurant only open until 9pm and when we arrived at 8.30 there wasn't a great deal left as it was all being cleared away. When it came time to pay the Waiter blatantly tried to overcharge me by €40. We were a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 young children , he charged us for 3 adults and 1 child and also charged us the weekend buffet price which was an extra €10 per person (it wasn't a weekend). Luckily my schoolgirl French was good enough to notice and point it out - he didnt even try to apologise and I fear that he tries this trick with all unsuspecting English families. Not a hotel I would go back to or recommend to friends and family.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
At first the reception person wasn't friendly but I didn't mind so much. What I think was terrible is that when I wanted to leave the hotel early, around 7am, I found a group of 50 or so people in the corridor. As I got to the corridor door o saw it was because the door out was locked!!! I've never been trapped inside a hotel my entire life and it's unpleasant. I used the telephone to call but most numbers were not working (there were no instructions whatsoever how to call or get out). I finally spoke to someone dialling 9 and this person told me in French without any sense of anything being amiss that I needed to leave by the night exit. I found that later but it was only signed in French and not clear to me at all how that would be an exit. I also saw no means on how to safely deposit the hotel key as that also required the reception to be open which it still wasn't at 7.15. Not a customer centric hotel in my experience

Staying here was a big mistake
A smelly hotel that is longer overdue for decorating, updating and cleaning. Staff were unhelpful and grumpy (didn't see any problems with the place - were they responsible?). Too far from the town to walk in - they said it was about 15 mins..... not many walk that fast! Some of the other hotel clients did not seem to be what one might expect in a tourist hotel. Quite expensive compared to hotels we have stayed in and most definitely very, very poor value for money.
