Made to feel very wlecome nothing too much trouble although we didnt speak any french the staff were very helpful in english
Poor service on accessing tghe car park - had to phone from the car to gain access to the facility even after booking in
Not much, however the room was quite comfortable. The services in the bistrot was very slow...
The hotel was beautiful and roomy, with a relaxed feeling. Le Bistrot restaurant was excellent, as was the lounge bar. It was nice that the guests had free access to saunas and the swimming pool. The hotel was well worth its price. The room was a bit plain and didn`t have the same comfortable feeling as rest of the hotel. The bed was terribly soft and uncomfortable, and we did not sleep well in it. The treatments in the spa were not worth their price, and felt a bit unprofessional an uninspired.
The staff were very friendly and the partner restaurant good. The underground car park was a bit of nightmare going between the two floors as the ramp was very narrow on the bend and is very tight for a mid range saloon (which was brand new and so we didn't want to scratch it!!)
the breakfast bread was good that the only positive thing I found in this hotel. junior duite is definitively not a suite but 2 small rooms and one has a camp bed. bathroom is very old and durty so are pillow and blanket. Than looby carpet is really old, and durty. and finally if you need the elevator on the moning you may wait for 20 min to get the change to see the unique elevator full
On arrival we had a problem with our room but this was sorted out promptly, professionally and to our utmost satidfaction. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, The location was close to the city and restaurants. The hotel restaurant was good as was La Table de Thierry in the old town.. There are 2 type of executive rooms and this should be pointed out to guests on booking.
Staff had very good english and it really helped me as i didnt have any french. The buffet breakfast was very expencive at 12 euro per person
We stayed at the hotel during a trip to watch rugby. It is well situated for walking into the town centre and catching a tram to Stade Marcel Michelin.
The vicinity to town Too high cost for this kind of hotel. Accomodations (double beds separating), very uncomfortable. Room too hot, could not adjust temperature, very uncomfortable. Parking fee is rediculous, that is taken advantage of the customer. Noisy room.
Good location, in a nice town, in a spectacular region. A pity there was no bar.
It was clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful. The cost of the breakfast was ridiculously high. It was not a good value. I also feel that during the period we were there, all the hotel prices in the city were inflated somewhat.
Friendliness Didn't clean up a spill on the carpet after the first night
Excellent location. Reception staff very polite and helpful and spoke both English & French. Handy to restaurants, transport and only short pleasant walk to the tourist old city and Place de Jaude. Found the aircon temperature set a little high and was not able to adjust it down (not a major concern and as we were only there 1 night, did not bother to raise this with the Hotel staff).
good steak in the restaurant Hotel pictures on the website are way nicer then the hotel actually is. As if time stood still for about 100 years
i liked his location and the room was very big but had a very bad smell. the staff at the reception should be more kind and helpful. and the smell in the room...
Centrally located with original period details and close to good restaurants, shopping and the natural waters for which Vichy is famous. It is perfect if you plan to visit The Opera House which is opposite. Parking was a bit of a bit stressful. The hotel does not have a car park so there is competition with fellow guests and every day users of the town for the limited number of spaces close to the hotel.
Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent location in centre close to river, shops, restaurants. Interesting, attractive 'older style' building.
The hotel represented what was good about the Art Deco period. However, this hotel although clean needs a lot of refurbishment.
Staff, pool, food, cleaniness, helpful, relaxing Bar service was too slow, waiting for long periods and very expensive.
Please write at least 15 words wifi did not function in floor five or in dining room although clearly advertised as being hotel-wide. Room smelt of smoke and had an ashtray allthough it was designated non-smoking. No mention of wether we wished supper when we checked in mid-afternoon but and was full when we asked at about 1815. Hotel reception did not volunteer any information outside of a direct question, for example when asked for some options for an evening meal no map was offered and a somewhat curt direction was given. All the hotel light bulbs were the minimum to see by, no clear lighting anywhere, the pool area was scruffy, the second lift from our corridor was very dirty with encrusted food and debris on the torn carpet. All in all the hotel appeared tired and run down, no door staff visible or offered for help up the steps of the non-disabled access. We had booked two nights but left after one.night.
First impressions from entering the hotel were that it was very old fashioned, but we were pleasantly surprised when we entered our room. It was very nicely decorated and not old fashioned at all and the bathroom was modern and very clean. It would have been nice to have had directions for hotel. Had to stop and ask in the middle of Vichy, and then found we had to park nearby because of the one way streets and not being able to find our way to park in front of hotel.
The welcoming service, spotless, warm room (winter visit). Lovely location on the park. Good restaurant, fine service.
Comfortable stay, good overnight Hotel away from the noise of the Autoroutes. Could be difficult to find without a Sat. Nav. We liked the air conditioning in the rooms.
Breakfast! The hospitality tray in the double room only catered for one person.
The house keepers talked to loudly outside, making it hard to sleep. And also if you stay on the groud floor, you can hear all the movements on the room over you, so if the person in the room wakes up before you, you'll probably wake up also because of the noise.
The room was well equiped. No restaurant although there were plenty within 10-15 minute walk.
modern room; clean; excellent location Did not have an iron ready (current one was damaged)
services / facilities, nice hotel staff, very good breakfast There was an unpleasant smell in the room (which could be caused by a cleaner used to make up the room). We left one window open during our stay.
I liked the the location, style and layout of the hotel. The facilities exceeded our expectations and needs and with the convenient tram just outside the front door meant exploring the town was simplified. I felt the parking could have been free for residents.
Good room. We liked the free coffee-to-go and cake in the morning.
Wide room, Free breakfast coffee and croissant. TV and Movie programs are excellent. 10 euros/day for parking.
Very comfortable pleasant hotel Expensive breakfast considering state of the gb Pound v euro so didn't try it.
No shower curtain/door - it was missing.
Excellent dining facilities and helpfull staff. The location next to motorway junction also suited us for exploring the countryside.
Staff were very helpfull. The rooms could do with redecoration, looking very tired. The food was very good in the restaurant.
Excellent food, good stopover when en route to further destination Rooms could be updated, bed was very soft
Hotel just near the "Péage". Slightly more expensive than the Ace hotel (100 mtrs away), but it includes a restaurant, bar and a terrace. Good beds. I expected the breakfast to have just a bit more choice. But breads were freshly baked.
Staff extremely welcoming. Excellent meal. Stairs are difficult for my wife so having lift access to room was most welcome.
Convenience to autoroute and Riom. The facility of a lift to the upper floors. A good buffet breakfast. Reasonably priced menus and pichets of wine. Restaurant service was less than elegant. No seats outside in the extensive grounds.
we use this hotel every time for one night everytime we travel to & from the UK as it about halfway the hotel is clean freindly & the bed is very comfy & you can get a meal or drink and a good breakfast. what more could you ask for for this price.we have already recommended this hotal to lots of our friends and they have loved it.
Good basic hotel Over heating
nice bar area the rooms were incredibly hot and wouldnt cool down
It's convenient place to stay if you traveling to Barcelona from Paris, or from Barcelona to Paris. I'll recommend to everybody. Poor choice of equipment in Fitness Center, dirty carpet on floor, need to clean or to change. Choice of cheese on Breakfast is poor.
Great hotel, excellent breakfast, good facilities
Room was well appointed and very clean. Restaurant food very good.
The restaurant was nice and the room was clean and tidy Not enough staff in the bar
The hotel was well situated for our further travels. It gave us a good nights sleep, a swim, nice evening meal & breakfast None
Good buffet breakfast provided. Hotel had its own free parking near entrance. Reception staff helpful in suggesting restaurants in the City Centre (about 10 mins by car away). Internet (but need to pay) available in room. Hotel bathroom had some maintenance problems (basin couldn't drain water) which had not been sorted out before moving in. Otherwise, no other problems.
The staff were very helpful directing us to various sites. The children liked the free cuddly toy they were given Room was not as clean as I would have expected- the blankets on the bed were quite old with holes, however as an overnight stay it was acceptable, but I would not stay any longer. We were also given a top floor room despite having young children and luggage which was not particularly child friendly despite this we stayed in another novotel near Paris and found this to be fantastic- food, room and much better value for money so would use a novotel hotel again
We were using it as an overnight stop-over hotel on route to our main destination, it was well placed for the motorway system and easy to find. The room was comfortable and clean. We did not use any other of the facilities
reception desk 24 hrs open - restaurant open 06:00 until 24:00 - good and friendly staff - clean and well maintained hotel - easy access from motorways - free parking for cars - large room prefer to have free access to internet for this class of hotels - since many business visitors are using this hotel
Like all Campaniles I have stayed in, good value and simple but comfortable
This is a new style Campanile. If you are looking for the old green hotel, you will miss it. Subtle grey colours and a new logo are the order of the day. Restaurant area was a bit like a works canteen
Room clean and comfortable. Restaurant very pleasant and good menu. Parking a great advantage. Would have liked Air conditioning in our room. Disturbed by coach party arriving late at night in nearby car park and leaving engine running in the morning whilst awaiting passangers to embark.
Good breakfast, reasonable hotel with basic facilities. New hotel, nice looking rooms.
Very surprised ast how excellent the restaurant was
We loved the new room design and the restaurant has improved immensly since last we stopped in in a Campanile The hotel provided every thing that we needed - very well
Clean, spacious - very good location for motorway - although Campanile was not signposted as we came off Exit 13. Good design - comfortable room and very large shower room. 10 minute drive to Riom - very interesting old city - found nice restaurant there too! Handy for Volvic too - well worth a visit. Fairly quiet hotel - considering the proximity of the car park. We were able to have window open at night. Had coffee/tea making facilties in room. Restaurant was quite expensive for a meal that was not particularly good. Only just managed to get a (tight) parking place on one of our nights.
Fantastic! Just what we needed after driving for hours from Calais. Couldn't have been better and more welcoming. Nothing.
Rooms recently renovated. Comfortable bed. Walk in shower.
The hotel is very convenient for the autoroute and makes a good overnight stop. It isn't really suitable for a longer stay.
The location of the hotel is very good, the shops and restaurants were in close proximity. The hotel itself was lovely and had great facilities and great value for money. I was on a business trip so appreciated a comfortable room after a days work. I would of liked more choice for Breakfast i.e. Cooked breakfast is my preference but the continental was nice its purely a personal preference.
Restaurant is good. Wifi is very slow and do not work from the room, only in the lobby, but not always. Not suitable for business people. Website reflect different impression than reality.
My overall impression was a good and positive one. The positives are: It is locatable by satnav. Good and free parking. Literally a 5 minute walk to the centre. Attractive and spacious foyer. Lift to all floors. Large bathroom. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Clean room and bedding. Bedroom was warm on a cold and wet day. Free and good speed Wi Fi. A fixed one choice menu for dinner was too limiting. Our bedroom was slightly smaller than we would have preferred. The shower did not drain properly so the water built up in the tray quite quickly. Tea and or coffee making facilities in the room would have been helpful. However, the above did not detract from our stay. The experience would have been enhanced if these aspects were acted on.
Pleasant reception and clean and well-equipped room which was spacious and well designed. The card entry system and the heating/cooling was excellent. The heating system needed some instructions available in the room. Why is there only one hook in the bathroom?? Dogs (except guide dogs) should not be allowed in the dining room area.
Easy to find. Staff friendly and helpful, room clean simple and comfortable although bed a little hard ok for a stopover but no good for a week. Breakfast at hotel was cheap simple and good for a continental breakfast inc. ham and egg. Other meals next door at camponile.
The obvious concern of the personnel with our stay - we like the open layout of the reception and breakfasr area
a good restaurant just across the road, two supermarkets nearby, easy access to the motorway
Good location for a stopover to or from spain with good access to motorway,breakfast was the norm for Europe,oh for decent bacon. no food in the evening although their are two adjacent hotels that have resturants.
Service: staff was unbelievably friendly, making an economy stop feel like something special. Also, better breakfast than would have expected. And price was just about as low as you can get.
We stopped in this hotel as a stayover on the way to the South and we were very impressed. It was great to get out of a hot car and in to a clean, spacious and air-conditioned room. We took a triple room and it had a desk and two chairs, which meant that we could bring back some food and relax in the room (a blessing with a tired toddler!). The hotel is easy to find and was in a quiet location. There was a restaurant close by but you can easily drive in to Riom & find plenty of shops there. There is also a vending machine in the lobby for emergencies. Regarding the staff, everyone we met was very friendly.
Comfortable, friendly, value for money, good breakfast Couldn't get Wifi or ethernet to work. Was constantly picking up the Componile's Wifi.
Clean room, efficient, as you expect from a hotel for one night while travelling to Spain
Surprisingly on and industrial estate with other budget hotel and restaurant next door. Not to be put off it was clean, safe and coveniently close to the motorway and especialy good value - so great stopover on a long trip. Will use again and the chain.
Bathroom dirty air con did not work in one room no tea making facilities
Location and friendeliness of the staff the cumbersom access to the garage level from my floor (5e). I had to take two elevators back and forth.
Reasonable cost for connecting rooms we have teenage children and wanted them close but not same room. Good breakfast, We did not realise it was under going a re furb and there were decorators and plasterers in reception. The room was hot and fairly cramped but ok for a one night stop over. Didnt know restaurant would be closed for evening meals.
Airco in the room. The breakfast was very good. We had a connected room (2+3) which was very easy with the children!
Looccation and easy access from the motorway No
Large bedroom. Easy parking. Bathroom "tired". " Cooked breakfast" on the first morning was cold. Breakfast on second morning - just one person to try to cope! No plates, no glasses, no cold food, no hot food, no orange juice, no fruits but it did have some bread and preserves. Restaurant closed on Monday and Tuesday evening. Most unsatisfactory.
Helpful staff.Excellent breakfast. Bedroom facilities,such as lack of two bedside tables,are too basic for this class of hotel. Taxi booked by hotel was grossly overpriced.
Central to Clermont Sites. Poor bar facilities. Tea cups in the bedrooms were of poor quality plastic.
Very Basic Hotel in need of modernisation
The breakfast was outstanding, staff very friendly and helpful. Staff were a bit thin on the ground in the evening. The only staff we saw was one at reception and one other sort of floating between bar and reception (although both were very helpful and friendly). We stayed on Saturday night but were unable to buy a meal (snacks only, pizza sandwiches etc)
location, parking double bed too small. It looks a bit old, a renovation would be welcome
the location and parking facilities are about the only qualities worth mentioning of this hotel. Service is non-existent, utilities do not function, staff are simply not interested in their guests and very unhelpful, the rooms are gloomy and for the price charged it is clearly misplaced in your ranking. It should be one star with a warning.
The hotel looks really cheap, I would never go back, the worst is that I have choosen this because of fitness room. But the access to the fitness is 18,5€.
Location. Only. Yes. I was promised the use of Thermalia complex for 6.5 euro per person. When we arrived we could enter it for free but there is no use in that - they have only cabinets there with expensive procedures which you should book long before hand. The stuff spoke zero English in Thermalia, the complex itself looked like the hospes - lots of 70-80 old people. Only. Waste of money - i would not come there if they told me on the phone that i cannot use the Thermalia.
We have stayed at the novatel several times, for several nights as we like Vichy and have friends living near. We like the novatel because rooms are a good size, there is a swimming pool and there are parking facilities. I think it's the only hotel in vichy with a pool. It is central, very near to shops and restaurants. WFI is a little expensive. In many hotels there is no additional chargae. Probably beginning to need some refurbishment.
It was easy to find after a long journey and a comfortable stay before the next leg of our journey.
I stayed for the second and last time in this hotel because of my experiences below. The restaurant menu is still in French only! More worse was that the air- conditioning was switched off in the entire hotel with an outside temperature off more than 27° Celsius!!!!!!!
Hotel reception staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel has a good location in the city center of Vichy. Hotel restaurant diner menu was only in French not in English or any other language.
We found this budget hotel to be ideal for an overnight stop on our car journey from Calais to Perpignan in 2 days. It's close to the autoroute & the food was reasonable Nothing particularly.
Good clean environment. No english speaking receptionists at night.
Close to motorway Room like prison cell, very noisy
The hotel was cheap and the Receptionist was very helpful Out of the way and parts closed such as the bar and the tabac
No proper shower. Hotel very tired looking
Decent clean economical hotel in a resonable location, with very friendly staff. this a bar and resurant, and other good eating places a short walk away. No negative points to mention
Good location for my requirements. Staff are friendly and helpful. Free wifi. Room was small - twin beds filled it except for a small desk & chair. Bathroom poor - small half-bath and hand-held shower. Noisy - apart from road-noise, bin lorries at 6am.
The location was absolutely great for access to the motorway. The only thing wrong was that we couldn´t get internet access although the staff were very helpful
We arrived late and they were kind enough to leave a 'key drop' for us. Rooms quite small
