What our customers say
"Friendly, quiet, clean budget hotel."
A great place for a stop over if travelling through France close to N10. Hotel has a much more upmarket feel than other budget hotels I have stayed in.
We made a very last minute reservation because our other stay had no airco while temperature was above 40C. This turned out to be a good choice. An affordable, clean and well airco-ed room with very friendly staff and a reasonable breakfast. Location along the highway (but far enough not to be noisy) and close to Tours is convenient. We will stay there again.
