At around £100 a night during the May bank holiday weekend, this room really was a snip. I will mention all that's good in a moment, but firstly the hotel needs to address the use of the word 'suite' in it's name.
It's a room, nothing more, nothing less. Not a bad size room, not a small one, not a massive one. It's smaller than a $29 roadside motel in the USA. It's quite a bit smaller than a standard Las Vegas hotel room. It's NOT A SUITE.
What's a real shame is when I booked, I was offered a 2nd room at half price for the kids. Seeing as I was booking a suite, this was not needed, Had I booked a room, I would have jumped at this option.
The room and hotel is ultra modern. Anyone who has been on a cruise ship will be familiar with the modular style bathrooms. They are all clean, functional and practical, doing exactly what they should.
Quirky points of note are the bathroom being the other side of the room to the loo. A sliding shutter thing that can be slid across to divide the room, although the divider is see through and sound travels through.
There is also a microwave (the hotel sells ready meals as lacks a restaurant) and a fridge.
The room is very quiet due to the quad glazed windows.
Breakfast was good value at 14 Euros, with kids eating free. For us, we paid just a few pounds extra at the point of booking, so it was a bargain. Excellent choice, all fresh and superb quality.
Wifi is free and worked OK. Parking was only 10 Euro a night, but we were lucky to get a space as the car park was small.
The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient and were all multi lingual. A free travel adapter was also made available when we noticed ours had been left behind.
The hotel is located just the wrong side of the station, but a 6-7 minute walk, via the station will have you in the heart of the Reims restaurant and bar district.
All in all, if you don't need a suite and are willing to sacrifice character for a clean and modern hotel, this may be perfect. Just don't be fooled into thinking you are staying in a suite, and if travelling with kids, consider the half price 2nd room if offered.
