This is now the fourth or fifth time I have stayed at Ibis Saintes. My main reasons for selecting this hotel is that it is essentially equidistant between my home in the UK, and that in Spain, it’s value for money, and easy access from the motorway, plus the staff have looked after me well in the past. At its price point, it is inevitably not in the luxury category, but suffices for an overnight stay. Room clean, bed comfortable, and quite a generous desk to work at. Dinner in he restaurant was OK, nothing to write home about, decent local red wine. Breakfast enhanced.continental- perfectly adequate. Free onsite parking. My only real criticism is the shower in the room - very slippery plastic surface with no riidging so you need to be ultra careful.

Saintes is conveniently located for an overnight stay if travelling on the motorway from Bordeaux towards the ferry ports, but you will need a reliable satnav to negotiate roads from the motorway junction to the hotel, as it is a bit “round the houses” to get there! This Ibis is all on one level, though some rooms are at the end of a fairly long corridor. Friendly and helpful staff. However, we have stayed at a number of Ibis hotels over the years, but were surprised at the size and layout of the room. Unfortunately it wasn’t of the size and quality that we have come to expect of the chain. The door for the bathroom was very narrow but also functioned as the door to the bedroom, making access during the night very difficult. We left wondering whether this is a hotel that has been taken over by Ibis, rather than one being purpose built.

The restaurant choice was limited and as our choice of main course from the menu of the day was not available we could not mix and match. Poor value and the waiter was not very friendly or willing to discuss options. other staff were good.

The room was very clean and tidy for my arrival, with a nice touch of a note on the bed from the cleaning staff. The location has secure parking (no cost), is close to the A10 autoroute and a Leclerc for fuel on a Sunday morning. The reception staff were very helpful and spoke very good English. The breakfast was very good value. Highly recommended.

All aspects of this hotel are excellent. Welcoming staff, clean rooms, well served and presented delicious dinner, very impressive and enjoyable all you can eat buffet breakfast. Good value for money and staff who obviously take pride in their workplace.

We used to stay here quite regularly but haven't been for a few years. On this return visit we discovered that the hotel had been given a makeover and the decor looked much more contemporary. However, the rooms are still very small. The nice thing about this hotel is its large car park surrounded by grassed areas, making it easy to exercise our dog. The restaurant is also good.

Large secure car park, locked at night. Friendly reception staff and excellent COVID-19 procedures throughout the hotel. Room was clean with comfortable bed, but very small - with two adults and two small dogs the room was very cramped. Bathroom shabby with threadbare towels. Food very good, with excellent breakfast.

Stayed here twice enroute to and returning from Portugal. Rooms are small but comfortable and the shower very good. The restaurant serves decent food with dogs allowed outside on the terrace or in reception so fine if it is not summer. The staff were all very good, it has a decent area for dog walking and convenient for the motorway.

We stopped here overnight on the way to Girona and on the way back. It helps break the long drive from Normandie. It was clean and we had everything that we required. The rooms a lottle small, but as it is you can live with that. The in room WiFi was a little hit and miss, but I managed to do what I set out to do. I particularly liked the fact that you could order food and take it to your room. Reception ring you when it is ready. Especially good after a long journey and you are too tired to go to the restaurant. There was a fair selection for breakfast and the buffet was kept stocked and scrupulously clean.

We stayed for a night en-route to our final destination. The hotel is clean and modern and the staff well-trained, friendly and professional. We had a pleasant evening meal in their onsite restaurant. Their implementation of biosecurity measures was very thorough.
