What can you say? It is cheap and easily accessible. The rooms have everything you need for a nights stay. The welcome was warm, the bed was surprisingly comfortable and the breakfast was fine. In all an average stay. The rooms and bathroom are a little tired and the aluminium windows let lots of noise in from the busy road... More

This was an unplanned stop as a result of being forced to drive from Nice to Cherbourg during the rail strike. Finding a hotel was difficult and when we found this we figured it would be adequate. It was just barely that. The room was depressing (the photos others have posted are accurate). It seemed clean but not fresh. The... More

I don't know how I dared to book this hotel after reading the two reviews that came up ('GOdawful' and 'Old and dirty', but because it was exactly where we needed an overnight stop, and wasn't expensive.... I did. In fact it was almost completely perfect for what we needed. Very easy to find, reception open till reasonably late, a... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night to break a journey across France - the location was ideal for this, being very easy to find from the motorway. I think the hotel must have been completely refurbished since the previous reviews were written as the room and bathroom were very clean and fresh. The breakfast room was bright and... More

We nearly didn't book up here because of the bad reviews from other travellers, but went ahead and were very impressed. The hotel was very clean, up to date, easy to find and had a helpful receptionist on duty until after 10. 00 pm. Maybe they have refurbished it. Anyway it was fine and good value for money. Don't be... More

Only stay here if you're stuck, as we were. No A/C, so we left the window open. Big mistake, the room was filled with bugs, hundreds of them. Nasty, at least in summer. Everything felt old and dirty. Basic beyond words. Worst experience of our month in Europe. We were glad to leave after one night. Too bad, too, because... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The service was excellent and the staff was helpful but the hotel neeeds to be renovated big time! The bathroom is old and gives a very unfresh impression. Black stains on the shower curtains and dust here and there. No AC which can be warm on summer days. Good for a night... More

It's a standard Etap (Ibis budget), a little bit older than others. Has a bigger bathroom with a small (1/2 length) bath. Wifi was good (clocked 4 mbps), no restrictions. There's a big Carrefour and a McDonalds nearby. small LCD TV RGB and USB inputs. Had BBCW but no sound.... I have one big problem with the room - the... More
