After meeting up with friends who had also been travelling through france we went to Les Fegates Hotel and Restaurant for our 1 night stay. We arrived at around 2 pm. I had prebooked this hotel through a hotel website and a telephone recommendation from the website. From the outside the Hotel looked very dated and very much in need of restoration or at the least a lick of paint. On entry into the hotel we couldn't help but notice a strange smell. It seemed to be a mixture of mustiness, stale cheese and ashtrays. The reception was just a book and computer on part of the bar. The hallways were dark with different pieces of carpet throughout. We tried to be positive as we were shown our respective rooms that were in fact surprisingly passable. We were all a little peckish and so went down to the restaurant for a snack. As the menu didn't seem to include any snacks we asked the owner if we could just get a sandwich or small snack. She told us that they didn't do snacks and so we left to go and find something elsewhere. Later that evening we went into the bar/restaurant area and sat at the bar and waited to be served with drinks. The staff working in the hotel saw us come into the bar and began speaking to people in the restaurant. A young girl was sitting at one of the tables in the bar cutting up cheese. The other members of staff were chatting with guest s in the restaurant area. The owner walked passed us not even acknowledging us. We got the same avoidance from all the staff in the hotel. Nobody came to the bar area to serve us. Twice, different members of staff came into the bar area to make coffee for people in the restaurant but they made no contact with us. My husband called to a member of staff who totally ignored us. I have travelled in france about 40 times and this is the first time i have ever been met with such an attitude. We sat there for around 15 mins. We all got up from the bar stools to leave and the staff turned and watched us leave. we left the hotel at 7.30 in the morning. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The area of Veulettes sur mer was like a ghost town. The beach was stoney with strong smelling seaweed. We found a small bar, and after ordering 3 vodka and cokes we found the vodka was herbal !!! The ice came out of a plastic ice cube tray from the top of the fridge it looked like it had been there for months. Not a good stop over !!!!
