A 'Chain' hotel that appeals to Commercial Travelers but works for Leisure travelers passing through. A great welcome and the chance for a beer or coffee after a long trip. Good access to rooms (lift available if needed) and comfortable beds. Clean room and bathroom as well as fresh linen and a reasonable amount of space in the room. The... More

On arrival we were concerned to have booked a family room but be shown to 1 double and 1 twin room. Luckily our children are old enough to be in a separate room but if they were any younger it would have been a problem. If we had known this before booking I would not have booked as there were...

This is an ideal hotel for a stopover for a night on the way south, but as with most things, you get what you pay for and the Eric Hotel is correctly classified as 2-3 star. The hotel is basic but adequate, rooms and bathrooms were clean if a little dated. The outstanding feature of the hotel is surely the... More

Extremely shabby. Furniture, paintwork, door frames, bathroom tiles all cracked and peeling. Shower sprayed sideways causing flood on floor. Bathroom radiator cold. Unwelcoming, unfriendly and unhelpful. Bed covers old and should have been thrown away. Cigarette burns on carpet. Smelly. Room very small. We would not have wanted to stay there at any price. We were so appalled by the... More

We stayed on our way back from the Alps, rooms are adequate. Good outdoor swimming pool. Breakfast was great sitting in the sunshine with plenty to eat. Most importantly, my daughter left her camera in the room. The staff couldn't have been more helpful found the camera and posted it back to the UK for us.

My husband wanted to stay in another hotel for cheaper price but it only had 3 T/A reviews and all in French so did not know if they were good. I choose The Eric soley on T/A reviews and wish I had not. We paid too much for this type of hotel, it is very basic, a long way from... More

We stayed overnight on the way to the alps and found it a good place to break the long journey. The accommadation is basic and it is in an industrial area as others have mentioned. We found it clean and tidy and the man in reception was very helpful. The town is worth a visit and is not far if... More

This hotel is on the very outskirts of town, a 15euro taxi fare to the historical centre of Dole. It is in a car park in an industrial centre. The hosts are disinterested and could not even help us with directions to town - it is by nbr 4 or 5 bus but these stop by 7pm. They have good... More

We have used this hotel as a stopover on four separate occasions. When your looking for a budget hotel Hotel Eric is hard to beat, with staff providing a friendly welcome, with an excellent buffet style breakfast to be had on departure. Rooms are modern and clean, with free internet access. A small pool for residents is a bonus after... More

From the hotel's description we expected a hotel on the edge of town and were appalled to find it in an industrial estate. We were extremely disappointed, and decided to look at the room before taking in our luggage. On entering, the reception area wreaked of stale cigarette smoke and the staff appeared slovenly and disinterested. When viewing our room... More
