We booked an overnight stop at the Balladins Nevers Nord Varennes Vauxelles due to its proximity of the motorway on our way back to the UK ( 5th August). As we arrived we were impressed by the appearance and car parking space available to the front of the Hotel. The Reception was in a large hall located in the central building. It was airy and clean with a circular service table and individual tables set up for breakfast the next morning. The receptionists were courteous and had a good command of English. Our room was in a single story block that faced the swimming pool. It was compact but was well appointed with tea and coffee making facilities. It also had a flat screen TV.
On the down side the pool looked grubby and the lack of seating around the pool left a lot to be desired. The room lacked the advertised air conditioning which became an important issue later that afternoon when we witnessed a horrific rain storm combined with a large hailstone storm, which prevented us from ventilating the room. As a consequence the room’s humidity level became uncomfortable. When the storm ended we had to leave the door open for the sake of fresh air but clearly with the inherent lack of security. The storm which destroyed trees and vegetation also filled the pool with leaves. A positive outcome was that the pool was then cleaned the next morning but unfortunately too late for our enjoyment.
This hotel is very reasonable at 50 Euros per night but we would have gladly paid more for a little more comfort.
