Reviewed September 11, 2013

One of our party was horrified when we arrived that this was 'only a 2 star hotel' but when we left asked if we could go back. This is a simple hotel small but very clean and well designed rooms. Basic but good french style buffet breakfast and just off the main road if you are driving south from France from the coming from the UK via Calais. The family rooms have the usual double bed / bunk bed combo but each bed is a decent size. There is a separate loo from the shower cubicle which can speed things up. Shower area more of a wet room so no nasty mouldy shower curtain but it is not entirely private from the bedroom so that may not work with older kids. There was a little bar but you would have to bring your own atmosphere and not expect anything major. Breakfast is optional and you can add it when you arrive. In my opinion it is worth the money.
I am not sure if I would stay here on a holiday (although my kids would) but I would not think twice about going again as a stop over, everything you want no hassle.

Okay - it's not the Ritz but at the low price they offer I am sure that's not what they are trying to be. We needed somewhere to stay on our way to the Provence that was reasonable close to the city centre (which is about 15 mins by car), comfortable and clean. It ticks all those boxes.

The staff are friendly and speak English. (and very accommodating letting me practice my French lines ;-)

Breakfast is cheap and has a good selection. There is something homely about breakfast TV being on in the breakfast room and a huge dog laying on the floor giving you a friendly look once in a while.

Would happily use this place again.

Used this hotel twice in the last week on the way too and from the South of France as it was located just of the motorway.

Rooms are small but very modern and clean, located right by a petrol station so I could fill up (cheaper than the motorway service stations) and wash the bugs off!

Breakfast was a simple French affair with pastries, cereal, bread etc.

Will definitely use again next time I pass through, very friendly staff, no complaints.

Another fantastic one overnight stay at this fantastic hotel. We arrived late by coach from calais, everyone tired and jaded. The staff quickly unloaded the cases from the coach and we all collected our room keys and retired to our rooms. The cases arrived almost immediately and we weree able to unpack and shower. Unfortunately we were too late for dinner but we had eaten on the ferry. The next morning after cases had been repacked ans returned to the coach we went down to a lovely breakfast attended to by the manager and his staff. Breakfast over we returned to the coach and set off for switzerland and davos.

This hotel on the outskirts of Rheims is a perfect stopover on the journey south. It is very clean and comfortable. There is not always a manned reception but you can check in automatically via simple automatic process in the lobby. The breakfast spread is very good and the car park is secure. There is a very good Asian restaurant close by

This is not a luxury hotel but it serves its purpose. The rooms are fine and clean. Its located on the edge of a retail park in the middle of nowhere but if you go through a gap in the hedge behind the hotel there is a linear park. Breakfast was sparse and the breakfast room tiny.

Arriving in Reims after a long drive from Belgium, and not having any accommodation booked, we were relieved to find this hotel in such a convenient spot.
It was really comfortable, clean and welcoming. Our comfort bedroom was really first class with everything you would need for an overnight stay. Lovely big comfortable bed and the bathroom area immaculate with hairdryer and complimentary toiletries The provision of refreshment making facilities was a bonus.Staff were more than helpful in directing us to restaurants nearby when we asked where we could eat that evening. The buffet style breakfast was excellent and the dining area very attractive.
Considering all the amenities provided it was wonderful value for money and we will certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Would recommend the Comfort status room
