The man who checked us in was extremely nice, thank you. The room was just ok. It is still clean and new, but it is more stripped down to bare minimum than anywhere else I've stayed. I might not choose it for a stay more than one night, but it was fine overnight, and the price was reasonable.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my wife and our pet dog. As we left the room for about one hour to eat dinner, we were approached by one of the male staff who basically ordered us to take our dog with us to the restaurant. We told him it wasn't possible. He got very angry and told us... More

Being close to the city and the airport, this hotel seems to accommodate a lot of business people and fills up fast. It met our needs for an overnight after arriving in Bordeaux. Even though it is not right next to the airport, it is easy to get to and it is just far enough to get away from the... More

I book the hotel for an overnight stop on our way back to the UK from south of Spain. Location is great, literally on the motorway and even though there is no direct access from the Bordeaux ring it is very easy to find and there are plenty of parking spaces. We found reception very welcoming but its only available... More

this hotel is is fantastic for one or 2 nights passing by Bordeaux area. Rooms are complete and perfect breakfast. Location is the best you can immagine when you are travelling to the south or the north of France. A topper Rudy Van der Auwera Belgium

Stayed for a night in the hotel and were very pleased, especially for the money (paid only 80€ for the family room). Room is nice, enough space, wifi works nicely, bathroom probably cleaner than back home. Also very good breakfast for extra 6€ per person, simple but everything was very tasty. Also very good location when travelling by car -... More

This hotel is quite modern, big rooms, a variety of channels in the TV, great modern shower and a perfect working Wi-Fi connection. The parking is free . Since Traffic entering and leaving the city is pretty stuck most of the time, it's recommended, if you're with a car visiting Bordeaux and it's area to stay outside this packed city... More

Probably repeating everyone else but this hotel is great for what it is aimed at. We stayed two nights and the room was nice, smart and a good amount of space. Nice bathroom too. One thing that wasn't so clever... when we got in the room it was boiling hot, so I turned on the air con, but that didn't... More

Stayed here as a stop over to South of France. Ideally situated,close to motorway but quiet. Hotel was like new, very clean and is very well kept. Comfy large beds in spacious bedroom with good size bunk beds. Nice size bathroom. Would recommend this hotel and would choose to stay here again.
