Stayed here as a stop over to South of France. Ideally situated,close to motorway but quiet. Hotel was like new, very clean and is very well kept. Comfy large beds in spacious bedroom with good size bunk beds. Nice size bathroom. Would recommend this hotel and would choose to stay here again.

As with many of the other reviews of this hotel, it does what it says on the tin! A great value clean stop- over hotel. We stayed here for a night on our way south to Spain, had a family room with a double bed and two bunk beds for the kids, more hotels should offer quality bunk beds like...

Like so many others I really liked this place. I picked it because I was tired of sitting on French highways in long traffic jams trying to access holiday towns in peak holiday periods. As I reached Bordeaux the traffic thickened and slowed just as my hotel came into view. Wonderful, just pull off on the first exit road and...

We stayed here twice during our travel to Portugal and back. Located very close to the highway, you don't loose much time driving around. You reach the highway in 2 minutes and the center of Bordeaux in around 15 minutes. A city by the way you should not miss. The hotel is very clean and they offer a correct breakfast....

I lked everything. It is great value for money. The person at reception was very helpful. The hotel is out of town but there is convenient and very cheap tram transport to the city. Ask a reception. They will tell you how.Also, parking is free.

This is the first time I have ever checked into a hotel via an ATM!! For after hours check-in (after 21:00) you enter your reservation number or credit card in the machine outside the front entrance, it prints out your entry security code which enables you to open the main front door and then your room door. All very simple...

We stayed in a triple room for two nights. We were driving to Spain and spent a couple of nights here while touring Bordeaux region. Hotel is very modern, clean and conveniently located off the motorway. The buffer breakfast in the morning had a lot of items in offer and was good value for money. Staff were pleasant and the...

I had some doubts, since from my experience some 2 stars hotels there can be really bad. But we were positively surprised. Hotel is new, modern and quite clean. Girl at reception was ok, but her English was questionable, we barely managed to communicate. There is plenty of parking space, free and pretty well working Internet connection. Rooms are quiet,...
