“poor is an understatement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

after driving for 15hours from portugal, in need of somewhere to sleep and something hot and nice to eat, we came across this 'hotel'!!!! we were charged 51euros for a double bedroom....as we opened the door to the 'room' we realised that we would have been better to sleep in the car!!! what a [--]!! a caravan has a bigger bathroom then this room had. there is no conditions in this place, and the restaurant joined with this hotel isnt much better...they dont know how to cook a good steak.. 9.90euros for a piece of rubber !!! 3 times the steak was taken away and brought back exactly the same!!! service was ok but the rest.... we would never stay in this place again even if it was the last hotel on earth!!!!

It was late. We were tired, we just needed to sleep. This fitted the bill.
Basic and OK
We just pushed the CC into the machine on the wall. We were then issued with the room number and a code to get in.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

We booked this hotel online much cheaper and about its worth,the room we had supposedly slept three but it was a bunk bed positioned across the top of the double bed which despite labels warning you I banged my head at least twice!! there was no light on one side of the bed and was very dim,one plug socket made using a laptop and electric toothbrush/hairdryer difficult,once again bathroom although spotless not for the larger traveller! On the plus side very easy access to the motorway which if you are heading south is a plus,also freee WIFI.If you are on a budget,carrefour is within walking distance and has a Restaurant attached with decent food at very reasonable prices.

Room Tip: at the back away from the carpark

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2007

If from time to time you want to save some money on hotels in order to splurge for something special, "Premiere Classe" chain of hotels are okay. The one in Saintes was clean and comfy. To be quiet ask for the back. Free parking. It is a very very tiny room with a mini bathroom and a TV. It is always a double bed at the bottom with a single on top. It is perfect if you just arrive for bedtime and leave early the next morning. Careful for when the office is open and how you can pay if it is closed.
P.S. Another chain of similar hotels is called Etap. About 40 euros/night/2 pers. Beware of "Formule 1" chain where you must share the bathroom with the whole floor.

  • Liked — the price
