We stayed in the aparthotel dowhat. It was great, much more spacious than a Novotel family room. It's right next to a tram stop so we went into Orleans for the evening. It felt like a lovely end to the holiday whereas when we stayed in Novotels we felt we were just waiting for the restaurant to open.
Am looking to book something for us 5 for August - the B&B hotel rooms for 4 look a reasonable size - anyone stayed in one? Is there a receptionist and how eagle-eyed are they likely to be? Do you think I could book a room for 4 and smuggle an extra dc in? (My dcs are all very similar in size lol)
If the baby doesn't need a bed, just book a room for 4. I've done this many times when my youngest was still small enough to fit in the travel cot. When they get bigger you'll have yo start booking two rooms though.
B&B hotels (a chain of travel lodge type places) do rooms with a double bed + 2 singles at a fairly decent price.
We're driving down to La Carabasse in August again. Did it last year but now we're one more - my son will be 3 months old - so we will be 2 adults, 2 children and a baby. Have had a quick search online but it seems that French hotels don't allow more than 2 adults 2 children per room. Has anyone managed to 'smuggle' a baby in (OH's idea) or is it best to book two rooms in case we're caught out? Just seems a bit unfair that we're only a baby extra but need to double the cost of hotel rooms.... Any advice welcomed!
