“Functional with no frills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

The rooms at this hotel have all that you require for a nights sleep whilst on the road travelling through France. There is a very comfortable double bed plus top bunk if you have children with you. There is a sealed shower room with powerful shower, separate toilet and wash hand basin. There is also a television which has lots of channels. The no frills include no carpet and no drawers or wardrobe although there are some coat hangers. There is also no shampoo or shower gel although soap is provided.
Breakfast is self service with no waitress service. Staff are very friendly and he room I stayed in was very clean.
Access to the rooms is via a keypad so there are no keys, it is therefore important to remember the code or to make sure you take a note of it.

Perfect for an overnight stop but not for much longer.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

I have rated this hotel 'excellent' in a previous review, and I was just as happy with it in several subsequent visits. But this time, immediately on opening the door of my room I was met by an overwhelming stench of tobacco smoke. Not just the smell of tobacco - a really heavy, sour smell which hit one in the face. Maybe it was the only room left vacant (I was quite late checking in), but no attempt seemed to have been made to ventilate the room or to treat it with a spray to neutralise the nauseating odour. I opened the window and turned the ventilation fan to 'max', with little effect.
Why didn't I return to Reception and ask for the room to be changed? I had just driven 600 miles and just wanted to flop (isn't that exactly what this sort of hotel is for?), and didn't have the energy to return downstairs and try to find someone to have a row with. In the morning, Reception was busy with the usual cluster of hikers wanting local information, and I needed to hit the road again. I was very glad to leave.
Moral? Check in early. Or try the adjoining Ace Hotel next time.

Room Tip: Check in early! You may then be able to change the room if it smells.

Merci d'avoir laissé votre commentaire sur notre établissement. Si une chambre fumeur vous été attribuée et que vous vouliez une chambre non fumeur, il fallait effectivement le signaler à la réception. Sans ça, nous ne pouvons rien faire pour vous satisfaire.

This has to be the best stop over hotel we have stayed in.

After the car broke down on the autoroute we checked in here and the staff couldn't have been nicer. The room was spacious, clean and warm (outside it was freezing). The bed was comfortable and the shower was nice in the morning. Breakfast was a snip at six Euros. Parking was ample and there were two restaurants within a very short walk.

Issoire itself could do with some improvement but this hotel, right beside the autoroute, is the perfect place to stop after a long days' drive.

This hotel is located just off the A75 motorway, I used it travelling from Spain to the UK. The hotel is located in secure grounds, good amount of parking and well lit. There are 2 local restaurants within walking distance. The staff spoke good English and were very helpful. The hotel, rooms and grounds were very clean, also dog friendly. Overall very handy, excellent value and highly recommended for those travelling.
