4 of us booked 2 rooms for just one night on the way from Clermont-Ferrand to Lake Garda - it was just somewhere to break up the journey and we chose this purely for the price as we were arriving late and leaving by midday. Surprisingly it was a great hotel - very modern and clean, and we felt safe in the rooms. The parking was easily accessible, secure and cheap.
The restaurant was the biggest surprise - very minimalist but the waiters were attentive and knowledgable and the food was good quality, and great if you have a good appetite! The breakfast was included and was excellent - plenty of choices of cereals, rice crackers and pastries (no gluten free pastries but we'd brought our own), brewed coffee with hot milk, and loads of juices. I also love the boil your own eggs facility!
The reception staff were really helpful and helped us with directions to town (via tram) and the cathedral to see the Shroud of Turin.
