We stayed in this hotel whilst touring back up north following a week in the Alps, and as we were touring by motorcycle we needed somewhere with a secure car park. Upon arrival the receptionist was very smart, spoke good English and quickly checked up into our room. The room was fine, very clean and air con that worked like a dream! My only criticism of our arrival was that signage isn't very good and luckily I'd downloaded a French sat nav onto my iphone which found it for us, the Garmin on my husband's bike didn't know where it was, and there were no obvious signs...
There were no toiletries provided but we had our own so it wasn't a problem, but if you normally stay in the budget hotels and usually do the F1's, just note the lack of shower gel otherwise you'll be rinsing off in the morning! Even the F1's provide it, so maybe they should extend that to the Ibis budget too, but that said, this hotel had just changed over brands so maybe they just hadn't got their act together??
Location wise, I have absolutely no idea how far it was from town, we just used it as an overnight stay and the only local place we saw was the supermarket which was very close. We also ate in the restaurant in the supermarket as the brasserie next door was closed for a couple of days, and it was a very positive experience, really cheap and the food was fantastic - the best steak hache I had all fortnight!
We paid for the buffet breakfast to save time in the morning, and for what we paid (5 euro I think) it was absolutely fine. The coffee was really good and so was the juice. There was bread, croissant and cake plus some soft cheese so we certainly got our money's worth.
The free wifi was really quick and it was a good choice for an overnight stop. I will look out for the Ibis Budget brand in future, it cost about 10 euro more than the F1 hotels and it was certainly worth it for the private bathroom.
