Reviewed April 6, 2013

Great location, near the motorway exit. The interiors are tired. Some effort to update, but it needs completely redoing, ripping everything out and replacing. Next door Ibis Style looks new but would I pay 81€ for a box when I could something of character for that price. Very good breakfast and service.

The room we were given at Brive for 2 nights you could only close the door by re-entering the code for the door. But the worst part was that there was only like warm wtare most of the time. The recptionist said that there was a problem when I complained, but she hadn´t told us this when we booked in. The problem remained during our whole stay

This Hotel is 2 Star (so very basic), so no resturant, but next door to this hotel is the Ibis Hotel that you can get food and drink, we checked in before 9pm and had a good welcome by reception (it closes just after 9pm), were given our key and room number, the room was clean, the next morning we had a french breakfast that you could go up and get as much as you like, we were not sure if we had booked the best thing but glad now that we did as the price was good and so was the serivce.
It is very good if you are thinking of an overnight stay then travelling on to your destination the next day and i would stay with this chain again.

I choose this hotel because it was near the motorway on my way going on holiday.
I booked and paid for a triple room. The bed for the third person was not made. I had to do this myself and there were only towels for 2 but as the reception was already closed I could not get any more. The shower was so old and dirty that we did not use it and the sink was more a handwash bassin for a toilet. Furthermore the room smelled horrible . So we were glad when it was 6 am and we were to leave. Nearby is a Campanile hotel and I will definitly go there next time.

standard Etap hotel, in a god position for visiting Perigord-Limousin, good air conditioning, free internet connection and car parking for the clients of the hotel. Full bathrooms are in the room but the toilet is very small and unconfortable.

We chose this hotel due to its convenient location just off the motorway (we were on route from Carcassone to Paris). We have stayed in a number of budget hotels recently but this was definitely the worst by some margin. The hotel is based in the middle of a large industrial estate and shares a free car park with another hotel, All Seasons. Our room and the public spaces were very poor, the carpet in the room was disgustingly dirty and the bedding was equally poor. The shower cubicle and toilet were acceptable - as with all Etap hotels shower gel is not provided. The air con was efficient. There is no lift and the rooms are located in a rabbit warren of corridors, on different levels.We did not stop for breakfast so can't comment.
The whole hotel is in desperate need of refurbishment - it is cheap build, pebble dashed inside and out! For an extra €15 euros we could have stayed at the adjacent All Seasons hotel which was far more pleasant (modern, clean public areas and what looked to be a good restaurant and bar).
On the one possitive note, the reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: We'd advise you to book another hotel!

Overall the hotel is reasonable value, but does not match UK standards in price or quality. There has been a problem checking in using the card check-in machine when using a Santander Mastercard after the reception has closed. This problem has occurs on every visit.
