“Cheap but still not worth it.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This is possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Its location is convenient, and it does have parking. However, that is where the positives end. The girl on reception was actually sitting in the breakfast room texting when we arrived. She was sullen and moody and obviously cross that she had been interrupted. Our room was close to Reception and consequently noisy. You could hear all conversations in reception, plus the people next door snoring, etc. The room stank of smoke. The beds were narrow and very hard. There was barely room to turn round. Worst of all, the water was cold when we arrived, and was cold when we left. The man on reception next morning was at least apologetic. However, a refund would have been more appropriate. Never again.

Room Tip: Don't stay here, but if you do, get a room well away from Reception.

Apart from a minor problem with the door keypad not working on my initial room (subsequently transferred to a different room) everythng was fine. Although close to the autoroute, the double-glazing was good enough to suppress the noise

Very Easy to find, located next to a busy road. At least two restaurants nearby and Petrol station for snack supplies. Staff friendly and rooms clean. As ever, the breakfast in these places is excellent value and a good "stock up for the long journey. Dog friendly, as are most ibis/etap places

Room Tip: No lift, if not sprightly, ask for ground floor rooms

Most important; the bed was comfortable and there was no noise = good sleep! This despite being close to the main dual carriageway. Good value for money!
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The secure car park adds to peace of mind.
Next door is a fish restaurant; beyond that another restaurant and over the road a 'Courtepaille' grill restaurant. All three can be reached on foot by walking over the grass verges.
The bedroom was clean and tidy; the shower room was a little tired but perfectly functional. Not for a long stay, but as a stop off en route, I would recommend this hotel.

Perfect location for an overnight stop. Clean, well priced and good customer service.Parking safe and secure, no noticable road noise and rooms clean and adequate.Never going to be a holiday hotel but perfect for overnight commute stop - the staff (even late at night) were very helpful, friendly and accommodating.

As always I was offered a warm greeting to this great little Hotel on the outskirts of Chartres, my room was clean and warm and I had a good night's sleep. If you don't want to go in to Town to eat there is a wide range of restaurants nearby and I walked across the road to the Courtpaille and had a delicious steak.

A very good buffet breakfast is served from 6:30am.

This Hotel is perfect for my monthly visit to Chartrexpo and I will continue to stay here as long as it's open.
