This was our 4th year staying at this quirky hotel en route home from our holidays in the South of France. The rooms are a good size, the reception is always manned by someone welcoming, with a decent grip on English (although we prefer to persevere in french) and despite our initial reservations on the location we have always had a very decent stopover. The local area is well served by decent restaurants. The hotel is quirky in the sense it is decorated with memorabilia from Hollywood's golden era's of the past, with posters, old American cars and various other bits of very respectable oddities. The menu seems extensive in the hotel restaurant although we always choose to eat locally at La Scala. breakfast is the usual continental fare, with a help yourself all you can eat approach for around €9. All in all, it's excellent value for money, very clean and always our first choice for a stopover destination.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the river/canal are much nicer and if Fireworks are planned then you can view from...

We stayed at the Arche Hotel on our way from Nice to Brittany, we chose this hotel because of the secure parking and we were delighted with our choice.

First the parking, it is in the underground of the hotel with lift to all floors. It is minded by a very helpful security man and when locked a code is needed. You can leave everything in the car with complete security and you can access your car any time if you have forgotten something.

We had a long 515 miles and very tiring journey due to torrential rain and flooding and we arrived exhausted, hungry and a little bad tempered but the reception we received was warm, welcoming and very friendly.

Our room 210 was at the end of the corridor and overlooking the canal du Berry, great view although not all rooms can have this view. The room was not very big but plenty of space for all your need including desk, chairs, etc and a nice shower room.
The bed was very comfy with nice bedding, a great night sleep after a weary day.

We ate in the restaurant and had a pleasant meal with good local food.
The parking and the wifi are free so altogether very good value.

We found out on day of departure that the owners are new from March 2013 and we wish them the very best for the future.

If you have to say in Vierzon then stay here. Friendly staff, cold beers. New management here so watch this space for some up-dates. The staff are trying hard and are very willing to help. Free parking.

then this is the place to stay. Vierzon is probably one of the worst places in France, it reminds me of Redditch! However the redeeming feature of Vierzon is the Arche Hotel. Themed on cinema stars of the past the hotel offers the weary traveller a quiet and pleasant place to spend the night. The parking was free, so was the Internet. The restaurant had a simple menu of well prepared food. I would happily stay at the Arche again, the same cannot be said of Vierzon!

The photo on the hotel website is about the only good view of the property. Very clever. Staff polite but not welcoming. Rooms average but I would say overpriced compared with others we stayed at whilst traveling in France. Even for an overnight stay the area surrounded by the local P--- artists was not pleasant and there is no mention of the bus station right by the hotel frontage. Never mind lesson learnt.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel

We spent one night on this hotel, business like reception not particurlaly friendly, the hotel is
situated i on a very nice part closed to the river. Rooms are OK with a very efficient Air cond, however in some rooms you have to pay €10 per night, Wifi is free. The parking in the hotel is free and they have a guard (very friendly chap ) during the day and it is locked at night. We didn't used the bar or restaurant as in my opinion the prices were a bit on the high side.The decor on the hotel is very unusual very " Hollywood " I particular liked the old Cadillac parked in the garage.
We had diner in a Restaurant close by " La Scala " very good food and very friendly staff.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the river
