“Whoops! Booked the budget Ibis but missed”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

We arrived at the Ibis after a long drive, only to find it was the more expensive one. After 600 km, we were too tired to drive round town to find the budget one we had booked into and upgraded, thanks to the nice receptionist. It cost 78E instead of 60E but was comfortable.
A chain hotel, it has everything in house, including a restaurant, which was just as well as le Puy, a beautiful and spectacular town, has almost nowhere to eat! (This was April - maybe they were still in bed!)
There is little to add. The Ibis is the equivalent of the British Premier Inn; very efficient at what it does but with few frills to make you feel cosseted.
As I said, the receptionist was very helpful, a real ambassador for her hotel. There are probably more interesting hotels in town but, if you're passing through, this does the job adequately

Room Tip: Try the back - less traffic noise

This was the most we paid of all the IBIS hotels we stayed in over Easter, I suppose because of the location in a very quaint town. It was easy to find, had free parking behind the hotel and free wifi in the room. Usual towels, shampoo and hairdryer, TV with one channel in English and lots of French channels, some of which you could change the language to English. Near the historic centre, not far from a nice park, ideally located really. We didn't have any food in the hotel. The lady in reception gave us a map and a few places to visit and was fairly helpful in French and basic English.

We had room 320, which was totally interior, with a view of pigeons and dropping-stained windows and ledges, but it was very quiet, so weighing this up against one overlooking the car park at the back or the road at the front, I think I prefer a quiet room, you can always get a look at the view once you leave the hotel.

IBIS now have these super beds with mattress toppers and they are huge double beds and are very comfortable, meaning my husband's snoring is much further away and I can get a good night's sleep. I did wake up very hot in the night and needed to put the air conditioning on, so it might be a good idea to check out how it works before you go to bed, and not try doing it at 3am with a torch!

I'd recommend this place if you want an overnight stay to visit this very pretty town, it has everything you need. I think we paid about £72 for a double room which was a bit pricey. It may be worth checking out other options if you can find something cheaper (but my experience with IBIS budget wasn't very good!).

Room Tip: Room 320 had no view at all but was very quiet and we slept well.

Well situated for exploring this city. Good (free) parking behind hotel. Small room but clean and comfortable. Staff helpful and friendly. Dinner included an extensive salad bar. And at £64pp for dinner, bed & breakfast it was fair value for money.

This IBIS was feeling rather tired and in need of modernisation. That said it was perfectly adequate for an overnight stay at reasonable cost and located reasonable close to the town centre. There was a small car park. We did not eat here in the evening (not sure there was a restaurant), but the breakfast was fine.
