We returned to Bagatelle on our way back to the UK to find it has had a bit of a facelift since our last stay, when our evening meal was in a dreary side room. This time the whole place seems to have had a lick of paint and there is a fresher feel to the dining room, back were it was before. The bedrooms are still minimalist but comfortable and fine for one night, with good sound insulating windows. Good towels and plentiful hot water but the rather small sliding door to get into the shower was a bit of a challenge! A kettle and tea/coffee facilities in each room are welcome.
The buffet option for evening meal is good value and worked well for our vegetarian companion, as well as for us. The breakfast buffet also offers good choices, with my husband delighted to find the butter is still a massive chunk of Issigny butter you have to almost chisel bits off!
It is not in the most appealing location but it has been interesting to see how the surrounding "commercial zone" now has a wide range of occupants whereas it was almost empty a few years ago. The nearby main road does mean that windows need to be closed to cut out traffic noise, but that works pretty well.More
