Hotel is some way to the North of La Roche sur Yon by the side of a busy main road. Shares site with Ibis Budget and F1 hotels. Large car park but on entry to site hotel does not look very inviting with some parts looking run down. On entering however the inside is bright and modern. Staff were not over friendly but were efficient and professional. Our room was on first floor and was reasonable size with normal facilities available. On plus side free Wi Fi was available but on negative side there was no socket near a mirror to allow hair tongs etc to be used. Double glazing was good and no sound problems were experienced. Bed was poor however and mattress dipped in middle.
As hotel is some way out there are no other nearby dining options so we ate in the Ibis. Menus are provided in the rooms so you are able to study them before you go to the restaurant. They are also used as place settings and in case you still have not seen one all the dishes are written on large blackboards around the restaurant. We skipped the starters as they were limited and there was nothing we fancied. I had pork ribs with a BBQ sauce and my wife the dish of the day which was sauted chicken. Desserts were Cafe Gourmand (delicious) and Creme Brulee. Total cost of meal with aperitifs and half litre picheur of wine was about 80 euros. Breakfast was also taken there at a standard 9 euros. This included cereals, yoghurts, ham, cheese, pastries, limited fresh fruit and some warm potatoe cake and small pancakes. Selection of bread and of course coffee, tea and orange juice.. Overall our stay was OK but the outside of the hotel needs some attention to improve the overall impression you receive on arrival.
