We have owned a house in France for 5 years and usually have a stopover the night prior to the ferry sailing. We have used Formule 1 hotels for nearly 30 years, initially because we would drive from Berkshire to Spain with 3 children, and would break the journey 2, 3 or 4 times. The kids loved the fact they had their own room next to ours, and sleeping 3, worked perfectly. This hotel is relatively new (we have probably stayed at 60 different Formule 1's over the years...including one in Liverpool). This is in a much quieter more pleasant area than most, with a couple of other hotels, and very near a hypermarket, a small collection of stores including a Majestic Wine store. Have stayed twice in the last month at this specific hotel, once during the weekend when France had a countrywide music festival. The hotel was full of kids, but was delightfully quiet after 10.30. It depends what you are looking for in a hotel. We find the standard is usually the same throughout France. Twice we have had problems with Formule 1s, but generally they are standard and do us fine for a quick overnight stop. They are always near a Buffalo Grill or similar for a pleasant meal. I was a bit put out this time as Formule 1 are cutting back on breakfast choices. Until recently there has been fruit compote and cereal, this last time there was non. I am not a great bread eater and not at breakfast...I asked for the compote and cereal and was told it was a cheap breakfast so they have cut the frills. Maybe after nearly 30 years its time to bring down the curtain on cheap hotels and actually find something more accommodating! For all that, its cheap and does what it says on the tin.
