Used this hotel to break up a long drive home from the Alsace and booked it via a (French) mobile app which gave it fairly reasonable reviews, as does Booking.com, 7.4/10.
Check in was friendly and efficient, we were in our room within 5mins of parking up. The parking is free and plentiful with CCTV cameras monitoring most of the car park.
Room was basic with a small modular toilet/shower in the corner; not ideal but hey ho, we were only paying €42 so no complaints. Bed was comfy enough but on the whole the room was a bit "tired" as were most of the public areas.
The bar attached to the hotel was cheap and cheerful, the staff pleasant and the beer cold.
We ate in the restaurant that night, as its the only place to eat without driving we didnt really have much choice. The food was ok - nothing startling but pleasant enough. Good wine list which as you'd expect, was heavy on the bubbles but had a good selection from other regions. Prices weren't too bad, set menus from about €15pp and a decent bottle of wine for even less. We spent a bit more and while not being overwhelmed by the food, didn't find much to complain about. Service was fine, the waiting staff looked to be mostly youngsters, possibly students, and they appeared to cope with a full dining room without any visible issues.
The bar closed about 10.30/11.00pm, this was mid week so it may stay open later at weekends.
Breakfast was included in our rate so no complaints on price. The bread and croissants were not the best I've had but there was plenty of crispy bacon and scrambled eggs to make up for it.
Check out was as painless and quick as check in.
Would I use this hotel again? Maybe. Having read other comments it looks like weekends are a bit noisy so probably only mid week if I was looking for a stop off on the way to somewhere else, certainly not for an extended stay.
