“the smell of smoke was unbearable”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

The hotel looks relatively new and is pretty clean. I would have given it an excellent rating except my husband and I didn't sleep at all. This is supposed to be a non-smoking hotel and our room (107) smelled so strongly we slept with the window open. Or tried to sleep. I have a blinding headache from lack of sleep and because of my allergies to smoke. Now I have a stopped up nose and my clothes stink. Ugh!

Room Tip: Do not book room 107. It stinks!

This hotel is fantastic value for money. We stayed here on our return journey to Spain from the UK. On our outward journey we stayed at another 'value' hotel which was good value, however we did not have a shower and toilet in our room. In this hotel, for just a few euros more, the room was bigger, the bed was central in the room and not pushed up against the wall, and we had the added luxury of own toilet and shower.

Would definitely stay in another Etap hotel without hesitation.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in November. We didnt get there until 2am (as car broke down) and the reception was manned by a polite young man, though on website, it said it wouldnt be. Our room was spotless, crisp, clean sheets, good shower. Plenty of room in the car park. Breakfast was buffet and delicious. Excellent value. We will definately be returning!

We spent seven nights in six different Etap hotels in central France in early September 2011. Whilst the age of individual hotels varies, the level of service, cleanliness and ease of access does not (at least it didn’t in the six hotels we stayed in). I am providing reviews for all six in order to identify individual variations. These hotels are ideal for couples or triples who are travelling by car and do not need to spend long periods in any one place. The rooms are small, but quite comfortable. The level of cleanliness is consistently excellent.

The Etap Hotel Tours nord is a little 'out of town' but well located with plenty of eateries within five minutes drive. The huge Auchan Supermarket was also only a short drive away. We stayed two nights and used this location as a base for visiting several lovely towns and châteaux up and down the Loire River. Vehicle access is easy and parking is secure. Checkin was quick and efficient and the staff friendly. WiFi Internet access was excellent and the continental breakfast inexpensive and adequate. Water pressure in the shower was also very good and the beds comfortable. We were well pleased with our stay in this hotel.

Well situated off the A10 for a long drive stop-over, we stayed one night.

Rooms are small, clean and functional.

We paid €33 so no complaints, but I would not consider this hotel for anything other than one night as it is basic and in the middle of no-where.

We used this hotel as a stop over for one night on our way south. Although the hotel staff were very pleasant and the hotel clean we would not reccomend it for longer than an overnight stay. The hotel has no restaraunt and it was a 15 min jouney to find a good one. The main problem was that the matressess were very hard indeed 75mm thick directly onto plywood and not condussive to a good nights sleep.
