“Not the budget hotels of old, but still good”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Very much the 'McDonalds' of the hotel world, where consistency and familiarity are the order of the day. At least you know what you're getting for your money, and you need a fair bit to stay there. That said, the cost of hotel accommodation and restaurants has risen steeply in recent years in France, and Campanile has invested heavily in recent years. Was it worth the effort? Yes, actually, although the same decor and layout across the hotels can be a bit tedious. But then again, so are Big Macs.

Like most Campaniles, this one is set less than two minutes from the autoroute (A20), and next to the now defunct La Roche airport. There is ample onsite parking. It's quiet, you are guaranteed a warm welcome, some of the comfiest beds of any large hotel chain, well maintained rooms with tea and coffee making facilities, and toiletries. The restaurant has a decent menu, a few local specialities, and a decent chef. You'll find friendly waiter service, and a reasonable breakfast buffet with cooked options. Menu prices are reasonable, not exceptional on the level of value for money.

Campanile is more of an institution than a group of individual hotels, and just like the famous hamburger giant, you are either a fan or not. Me? There's something comforting after a long drive about knowing what awaits you along the way. Prices mean that the chain is no longer in the budget category, but it has earned my four stars by balancing price and comfort, but not perfectly.

Room Tip: It's not a noisy location, far enough from the autoroute and set down an avenue with access to a...

We wanted a place for a one-night stop-over while driving from the Channel down to Spain. We'd stayed here once before: it's easy to find, just off the motorway; it's nothing special (wife finds the rooms a bit poky and dark); I wd say homely, even cosy . . Has slightly North American motel quality. Dinner is standard Campanile, which means quite reasonable, unpretentious stuff; was doing very good business when we were there. Pretty good value.

Used it out of convenience while travelling back from the Dordogne.

Does what it says on the box

There was a time, 4 or 5 years a go when the Campanile Hotels were really good value, with buffets stocked with while salmon for example, today the bean counters have clamped down on this but they are the devil you know. Our evening meal was OK and the room was clean and comfortable.

Conveniently placed just off the motorway junction.

We were travelling from the UK to Spain and just needed a convenient place to stay overnight,that was close to the motorway,and roughly halfway on our journey.The Campanile in Brive suited our purposes very well.We had a twin room which was spacious,with a nice bathroom.The reception staff were very friendly and efficient.There was also a nice restaurant on site( not top end but adequate) ,so we did not need to in search of one.For our purposes this motel was perfect,and certainly would recomend it.It is extremely well priced.Fee Wifi and parking.
We ate dinner which was ok,but didnt have breakfast so cannot comment on this.We would certainly use this motel again if we were in the area again,and due to our experience may seek out other Campanile motels in the group if the need arises.

Room Tip: The motel is in a quite area but I guess a room facing the airfield(didnt see any activity) may gara...

We stayed in about 6 different Campaniles on our 3 week trip to France and they were great. Most had a good breakfast, a nice restaurant for dinner and were very clean. The staff were very helpful and would call ahead to book us in teh next Campanile on our route. They gave us ice when asked.
The hotels were well marked but usually on the outskirts of town. the room here was 75 E and breakfast was 9 E each. Dinner was 15E each. We did get tired of the menu but we could always eat elsewhere and sometimes did.
The rooms are not big but the bathrooms were the best we saw. Some had heaters or hairdryers. Many had coffee, tea, biscuits for us.
