Sat Nav picked it up with no issues, the roads around are a peculiar one-way system but if you just follow the directions without thinking, it gets you there successfully. Plenty of parking.
I was not prepared for the 'motel' style layout of the rooms. Your room door is an exterior door onto an open balcony with open stairs. There is no 'interior' so really don't think this can count as a 'hotel' and was very very different from the style in the same chain that we stayed in last night. Luckily it was not raining otherwise this would have been quite unpleasant.
Unfortunately this made the room feel much less secure, especially as the door did not seal completely shut, leaving quite a draft across the room in the evening. It was necessary to turn the room heating up to 29 just to off-set the draft.
Room is very snug, again I'd booked a triple with the bunk and that gave us just enough space for an adult and a child but we were still falling over each other trying to get ready. Bathroom is a hilarious pink 'pod' [as another reviewer described it] of the type that wouldn't look out of place in an eighties hospital. Tiny, smelling a bit mildewy and the shower drain was obviously not cleared as the water didn't drain properly, but it got the job done with some [although not a lot] of hot water.
Big plus was that during the night it was very quiet, so you could get some good rest. Turned out in the morning that a lot of the rooms seemed to be booked to contractors, [fluorescent vests seemed to be the breakfast fashion] so everyone seemed more interested in sleep than making any noise.
Also wi-fi is very good and strong and connected both laptop and iphone with ease.
Buffet was very simple [no cereal] but was restocked continually and machine for hot drinks meant there were more choices than just coffee. However, unlike yesterdays premiere classe, this was set price per person, no children's rates.
In a very industrial zone, but 5 mins following the sat nav takes you to a huge shopping mall [about Bluewater size] with lots of restaurants and a giant Carrefour. Didn't see anything local by foot although there is another hotel on the same lot so perhaps that has a restaurant?
If there was nothing else in the same price bracket I would return for a one-night stopover, but with hesitation. I suppose with older children I might feel more confident, but this was just a bit too exposed to the elements for my liking.
