I researched the temple before staying and loved the history, It was partially bombed during the shelling of Verdun but redone and then redone by the couple that now own. It was renovated into an apartment to perfection and loved the beds, linens, shower, tub, loft with netflix and all the amenities that came with the Gite. I would not hesitate to stay again. Great markets close by so we ate in after days out. We had snow and cold temps so ate in both nights. This was so charming and thank you for allowing us to stay.
We were travelling back from Skiing and arrived on Saturday evening at 7 pm, well within the 5-8pm check in time. We received a text at 6.55 as we arrived in Verdun saying that the owner was not available for check in until 7pm and uncontactable. What happened then was 50 minutes on the doorstep in the cold for a family of 5 unable to gain contact until a text came through with a PIN code for entry. This meant we went out for dinner slightly after 8pm and were unable to find anywhere to eat as all restaurants were fully booked in the centre of town. Eventually the owner of the small Pizza restaurant managed to place us after 9 pm.
Next morning, the 15 euros per head breakfast turned out to be a small selection of supermarket products we could have bought ourselves and a voucher to go to a local bakery (opening hours arrived by text on the morning - too late again; simple directions and no charge would have been better) which was disappointing.
Apparently an email had been sent the day before to our email account (a shopping account we don't monitor due to frequency of ads) as if this were an excuse! They could have sent the PIN code with the text and the evening would have been ok.
We booked via Booking.com and paid £184. Whilst waiting I also hung on the phone with them for 15 minutes in a hold queue, eventually hanging up when the PIN code came through.
WE stayed 2 nites the end of September into October.
Clean but stairs need marking as the color blends and very easy to fall. !!
BAthroom sinks need hand soap to wash hands after toileting and shower also needs soap. More toilet paper needs to be provided. A fresh new toilet paper roll needs to be available for new guests, not a half used roll . Being a health professional I had concerns with this and the stairs.
If this is a Bed and Breakfast then foods need to be provided. The bathroom mirrors are hung too high for short women.
