Hotel balladins Villefranche de Rouergue
Reviewed 6 August 2013

We have just spent three nights at this hotel. The reception staff are especially helpful and friendly. The rooms are spotlessly clean. The air con is very efficient and silent. The large car park is free. The swimming pool is very clean as is the surrounding area. There is a Funch restaurant across the car park which stays open till 9.30 p.m. We strongly recommend this hotel.

By far the worst place I've ever stayed in. The staff particularly front desk were incredibly rude. The wifi did not work and on the two occasions I asked if there was a better connection I was given two very different excuses. Breakfast was average at best. When again asked for a bowl the lady replied in a rude tone that they did not have bowls and I was to use the coffee cups. The rooms were by far the worst! Room 112 floor is damp, cold the bedding is old I wouldn't even give it to my dog to sleep on. No ventilation, poorly lit and overall a terrible experience. DO NOT STAY!

After looking at a couple of less-than-impressive hotels downtown, we called in to the Tourist Office for help and were directed to Balladins. It's out of town a bit - but not too far - and is very handily placed by a hypermarket with eateries, fuel for the car, and a self-service laundromat. Reception staff was pleasant and helpful, although we were somewhat disconcerted to learn that they lock up and "abandon ship" after 9:30 at night. It's an odd feeling being in a hotel and knowing you're all alone with no-one to call on if you need anything, but we accepted that as a reasonable compromise for such good-value-for-money accommodation. It's a clean and tidy establishment that is perfectly fine for a short stay, so long as you have a car to get downtown in.

We chose this hotel as it was on our route. We arrived late after very long drive & first thing we did was head for the pool. It was really lovely we had it all to ourselves. Had read on other reviews pool out of use so were delighted to find it sparkling clean and ready to go. rooms were standard beds were fine & tv was flat screen ( all french channels). The hotel was opposite a large hyper market with three restaurants attached but we got out of the pool too late. Eveyrthing closes at 9pm. Luckily with starving mouths to feed the receptionist directed us to nearest McD's (weird how everything tastes better on holiday). She also sold us beer even though bar was shut what a lifesaver. The area was really quiet as was the hotel so perfect for undisturbed sleep. Bathroom was nice size & the shower was really powerful & hot ideal. We didn't have breakfast preferred to try one of the restaurants instead. Again when checking out new receptionist as friendly & helpful as previous one getting us maps telling us about local sites etc. Would definitely use again next time I'm in that area.

This is a pleasant town, with a river running through the middle,so we hoped for a hotel in the downtown area, but there is little accommodation and after looking at two grotty hotels in the downtown area, which were tired old rooms up a flight or two of stairs, we went to the tourism office and asked for some help. They found us a room at Balladins. it was a decent hotel, much like a north American motel. It's about a km from the city centre. the room was fine, with a lovely newly tiled bathroom, free wifi find the standard French continentals breakfast. staff were helpful. many of the other visitors seemed to be locals who might have been staying long term. it was a hot day and too bad the pool wasn't in operation, but thre was a hot tub/ spa operating. fine for one night, not necessarily a place you would want to spend a more time at.
