“Back in college?”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is a budget hotel and that is understood. But the price was within 1 euro of three-star hotels we stayed at in France. This was a 2-star. It probably should've been a 1-star. The room reminded me of my college dorm, BEFORE I moved in. The room has 2 small twin beds, a mini-tv, no curtains, no pictures on the walls, one chair and a counter. The bathroom was fine. The room was clean with white, white sheets. It was quiet and the parking was plentiful. The lighting was not sufficient for us to read the books we had along with us, so we moved downstairs into the lounge. The lounge was bright but the chairs were very uncomfortable. There was no air conditioning, which we expected inasmuch as it wasn't even a TIer 3 hotel. Breakfast the following morning was an experience. They had run out of juice. When I asked if there would be some replacements, I was treated like I was asking for more than I should. I didn't expect much for breakfast, given the price, but I at least expected a small glass of juice and bread. The bread choices were also minimal and the "pickins' were few". The staff seemed more interested in being outside talking with other staff member than meeting the requests of the paying customers. We will look elsewhere the next time we are in the area. This was the only hotel in France that we were not happy with.

Usual Ibis good standard, but the air-conditioning was not working. We were told that there had been repeated phone calls for the engineer, without success, so I sincerely hope that it was put right before the current weather got even hotter! Apart from that, everything else was good - access, parking etc. It's obviously a popular hotel due to the number particularly of business people checking in, and despite being busy the staff were only too pleased to help with any enquiries. The Crescendo Restaurant in the Hypermarket almost opposite the hotel is great - you can get an excellent meal for about 7 euros - salad buffet starter plus main course cooked freshly with a choice of vegetables, plus a welcome drink of Sangria too! If you want to visit the town of Marmande (and you shouldn't miss it!), it's just a short drive away (too far to walk). We would stay here again if we need an overnight hotel. Recommended.

We stopped over night on our way to Carcassonne and the hotel ticked all the boxes. We would use it again and spend more time in Marmande. The hotel was very busy but the staff were still helpful and friendly with advise on using the Hypermarket across the road, for dinner. Good move.

We travelled with our dog and we were all made welcome, small clean room provided all we needed for a stopover on the way to Bilbao. Staff really friendly and efficient. Free Wi Fi was an added bonus. Good Access and gated overnight parking.
