Booked this hotel on low price. I was not expecting too much but to my surprise it was very good. Nice room and very clean. I took the opportunity to have supper in the hotel restaurant. Again I was surprised at the quality of my three courses. Having very little French the staff were most helpful and friendly. I will... More

We stayed for 2 nights on our way home from the South. Fab parking including if you have a trailer or caravan there is the room to park (double space). We stayed in a family room which the kids loved, but to be honest was very basic. The swimming pool was a welcome extra and the restaurant was amazing! The... More

Close to the motorway system and not far from the centre of Poitiers. Very helpful staff, good sized clean room with bathroom and separate toilet. Good buffet breakfast, don't leave to late to eat as food supplies run down. Not sure I'd want to stay more than one night as need transport to get into Poitiers but if you can... More

We discovered this hotel after a mammoth drive from Northern England the day before. It was late at night and we were desperate to find a place to spend the night in comfort. We hit on this 3 star hotel after leaving the A10 in search and were delighted by its welcome and the comfortable room we were given with... More

Stayed in a triple room on a Sunday. This was a clean and well maintained hotel with a friendly and efficient staff. The hotel is located in an out of town area so you cannot walk to any attractions. The hotel will however call you a taxi which was fairly cheap and allows you to go out without worrying about... More

We stayed here on a freezing cold night and found the hotel to be warm and welcoming. The menu at the restaurant was not appealing so we ate elsewhere. The hotel was chosen as it was relatively near the railway station and, unlike many other hotels in Poitiers, it had free parking. Functional and friendly.

Room overlooked the dualcarriageway, making it very noisy and as we had to sleep with the windows open(very hot and no airconditioning) we ended up covered in mosquito bites. Room smelt of stale cigarettes and there was a spider's web in the corner of the room - that stayed there the whole visit!! Bar staff were practically non-existant.

Travelling enroute from France to Spain this is a good stop-over place after starting in Calais. Location is out of the town but we chose the hotel because it had parking and the majority of the centre of town hotels didn't, so if you don't have transport bear this in mind. There is nothing too special about the hotel, but... More
