The positive points were: - very nice receptionist, nice fresh coffee for one euro per cup, concept of having the rooms in different buildings, mattress was much better than the general quality of the hotel. This being said, the room was very old and tired, nowhere to put one's stuff at all (and we had very little, as it was...

If not at the cutting edge of Motels, the Balladin at Saintes has many redeeming features. Very comfortable room, bed and bathroom, The conveniently located building is not the quietest due to its cabin like construction method. The staff are extremely helpful, and the breakfast more than adequate. The price makes it very good value. Overall it's provides a very...

Driving from Spain back to the UK and needed a bed for an overnight stop, This was an inexpensive, good sleep. Be prepared for no bar/food on arrival just breakfast which was continental and pleasant. All staff were very friendly and helpful

We booked this as a one night stopover whilst driving to Spain. I do not know how anyone would manage more than one night here! The location is perfect for road trippers as its by the motorway but everything else was a struggle. The bathroom has a shower that is only at waist height, the rooms even in June -...

Basic hotel, but for one person ok, not for a couple. My first experience with Balladins, I'll prefer to pay more but stay in another hotel, sorry nothing wrong with staff but the bathroom put me off. Nice restaurant nearby, had a good meal. Thanks

On our trip to France this last weekend we stayed at a very sub standard Hôtel Balladins. As we are 3 large adults aged 73, 72 and 43 we rejected hotels where we were offered a triple room with a double and a bunk bed and booked 3 single beds which was shown on our booking form. For this we...

We stayed here for one night on our way to Southern France. The hotel is easy to find and not far off the A10. Check in was easy and the staff were helpful. The bedrooms are in a separate block to the reception and breakfast room. The bedrooms were basic but clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was...

This budget hotel was a find - stayed 3 nights alone with son (9) . The room with shower room/wc was basic but very clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly and offered great suggestions for things to do and visit and where to eat . It is in an industrial/commercial park so not pretty surroundings but easily accessible...
