Campanile Hotel Foix
Almost on the Lake, next to Hotel du Lac
We used to be big fans of the Campanile Chain.
They never varied fom one end of the country to the other. It was as though someone had found a way to reproduce the total formula from the same pattern. The rooms were small, basic but perfectly adequate for a low cost overnight stop.
As we got older we looked for a little more comfort and had not been to a Campanile for several years until this one in Foix in April 2008.
The rooms look just the same - but we were staying next door at Hotel du Lac and what we had always liked best about the Campanile were the Buffet meals served in the restaurant.
So after a disappointing and overpriced meal on our first night at the Lac we decided to try the Campanile buffet for the sake of economy and for old times sake.
Well - not all things stay the same for ever!
We had a poorly presented meal probably provided by a mass caterer and the bill came to only a little less than we had paid the night before at the Lac!
This particular branch of Campanile is run as an independent franchise so I would not rule out the possibility of staying or eating in a different Campanile at another location......
