“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2012

The good: the staff was fabulous, breakfast was very good (fresh squeezed OJ, fresh eggs, lovely pasteries and breads, fresh fruit), room was spacious, less than 10 minute drive to Palace of Versailles, free parking, grocery store across the street

The not so good: there was a strong sewer smell throughout our floor (top floor) which was masked by these glass containers filled with strong blue liquid air freshener. We brought one into our room to mask the smell, but when the freshener scent got too strong, we returned it to the hallway where it had started to smell like sewage without the freshener. Shower drained very slow - I think there is an overall plumbing problem. The room also had only one skylight and no windows - I'm glad we were mainly there at night when the absence of natural light was to be expected.

We actually used our Best Western Gold Crown Club points to pay for two nights at this hotel, so I'm not sure what the actual rate was, but we originally chose it because it was close to Versailles (AND free with our points). The room was very nice and well-equipped, the wi-fi worked great, the restaurant was very good, the breakfast was full of variety and options compared to all the other smaller hotels we'd stayed at during our visit to France, and the staff were extremely kind and helpful. The only complaint, if you can even call it that, would be that it was a little inconvenient location-wise. Your only option for food was their restaurant, which wasn't cheap. We did try going to the super market across the street, but like so many places in Europe, it closed up before 8:00 p.m., so we honestly just skipped dinner that night altogether. Other than that we would definitely give it an excellent rating.

We stayed here for a stopover on the way back from a holiday in the south of France. After 12 hours in the car it was a sheer pleasure to arrive and find a clean, well equipped and well air-conditioned room waiting. The family room was a good size with proper beds and plenty of pillows etc. The TV was a big plasma on the wall and we had an excellent coffee maker in the room too. The staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

The only reason it didn’t get top marks was the fact that the restaurant was closed and we had to go out to eat. Be warned it is closed on a weekend although there are some nice places to eat fairly close by.

Arrived for stopover on way home. Easy to find was signposted as soon as you came off motorway. Very near to an airport but it must have only couple of flights if that as we didn't hear anything. Its disadvantage was its location stuck right in the middle of an Industrial Park. There were no restaurants except the hotel one according to the receptionist. So we walked across to the supermarket directly opposite hotel instead and grabbed some supplies as very grouchy exhausted kids were too tired to wait til it started serving evening meals. Rooms were fab. Very funky with a really lovely coffee machine. TV was flat screen & we just hooked up lead to laptop & were able to watch movie. Only major drawback was lack of aircon it was a very hot night it was like a sauna. But didn't overly matter too much as slept great. Everything spotlessly clean. price was brilliant too (booking.com) On drive out discovered really pretty village of Buc about two minute drive looks good place to eat out.

Check in was nice and quick guy at the desk was pretty cool


Room was a new wing on the top floor and was kind of cozy I have to admit and brought back good memories of my dorm back in school. There was a supermarket across the street which was extremely convenient but they close at 19:20.

Minimalistic hotel and would recommend it for a short stay.

Just stayed over on our way to the south of France. Can't find fault with the place. Staff are superb. Place is spotless and Kids breakfast is free with a good choice.

Stayed here for one night whilst driving back from the south of France.
The hotel is great value for money, especially when booked through booking.com.
We had two rooms, each with a double bed and a single bed (able to sleep three people).
The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. There was free wifi, which was easy to access.
I don't know how it is for the rest of the week, but for those staying in the weekend, keep in mind that the reception closes overnight. Anyone wanting to leave early the next day should keep in mind to already check out the day before.
There is an intermarche supermarket across the road. Staff were friendly.
Versailles is easily reachable by car.
