There is a very varied buffet three times a day. Quality and variety of the food is outstanding. The staff is very pleasant attentive helpful without being in your face. The surroundings are very pleasant and very clean. They really take the sanitary precautions of Covid very seriously. Really nothing much that we didn’t like. Our room a standard room was spacious with a clean and modern bathroom. Bravo

Les nouvelles habitudes liées au covid n'ont rien enlevé à l'hospitalité de l'équipe, bien au contraire. Merci pour les petites attentions, le cadre toujours au top et les bons repas qui font de chaque séjour une belle escapade 😉

2/10 Poor

The place is really neat and all,but if you dont speak French do not go there, you will be mostly ignored by almost all of them ,their customer service to foreigners that aint French are terrible. I thought it was only happening to us but as we were about to check out the hotel i see other people there that were complaining aslo, if you dont speak French they will give you wrong orders and delay you,attend to other people and ignore you, i can never go there ever again ,i was planning to stay for a week but after 2days of bad treatment, starving because i cant get my food order right ,i had to leave to another hotel. I know golden tulip hotel is good ,ive been to many good branches in different countries, just this particular one or maybe the country that is terrible to non French speaking customers. Then all the workers will try to cheat you if you are not understanding the currency very well.
