My husband & I stayed here for just 1 night in May, as we had to check-in at 5a.m.
The rooms are clean & basic but a bit tight on space (I don't mean storage space; I just felt a bit claustrophobic) & I did miss not having a kettle in the room.
There was only one pillow, per person, so I had to stuff a few things under mine to make it comfortable for me. My husband didn't sleep well (unusual for him) as he didn't find the bed very comfortable, at all, so arose with a few aches & pains!
Breakfast is basic but good enough. The sounds of the airport are inaudible, really, so that was much better than I'd dared hope.
We ate our evening meal in the hotel next door. I think we may look into staying there next time. Shame, as the staff are nice at the Etap, & it was better than travelling in the night, but with a little effort (e.g. pillows & tea / coffee-making facilities) it could be better. Most people, I’m sure, would appreciate being able to make a drink, especially as the whole purpose of their being there is unsociable flight times!
Re: value for money ~ it's not *that* cheap; you're really only paying for the convenience of the location.
