    The room was pretty basic but for 60 euros per night it was ok. The only disadvantage is that the hotel is really isolated and you need to either have a car or book a taxi to go anywhere. Taxis are very rear in the area, you need to call them so make sure you book in advance. We arrived in Gaillac train station and we spoke with 4 taxi drivers on the phone before we managed to order one to take us to the hotel. From the train station to the hotel it is about 10-15 euros with the taxi and from the hotel to a vineyard which was 30 minutes away it comes down to around 30 euros. If you have a car things are much easier, hotel is only 15 minutes drive from Gaillac and has plenty of free parking space outside. In case none of these work out there is a car rental store literally next door with cheap prices.

    The personnel was extra friendly and helpful. They spent 10 minutes of their time trying to arrange taxis for us when we couldn't communicate with the french speaking driver on the phone. They also extended breakfast for another hour when they saw that we needed more time. Very nice people and polite. The breakfast cost was at 7 euros per person which is a good price given that it was a buffet, (it included yogurt, bread,french toasts, jams, honey, nutella, two types of cheese, selection of teas, orange juice, apple juice, milk, cereals, hot chocolate and selection of coffees from a machine). Plenty of free parking space outside the hotel and a car rental store literally next door. Hotel doesn't offer lunch or dinner options BUT there is a lovely restaurant with delicious food right around the corner (called Le Bouchon Gaillacois), you wouldn't normally expect to find a restaurant like this in an rather empty area like that.

    The staff was nice and helpful. The facilities were modern, clean and and pleasant. It was very quiet during the night and the day. As it was about 300 m from the national road 88 I could travel to Albi in 10 min by car. The parking had many free places and was safe.

    Finding the hotel requires a little searching after your GPS tells you that you've arrived. The area around the hotel is light industrial/commercial, so don't expect to walk to a patisserie.

    This hotel has a lift and air conditioning that works, although in all the hotels we stayed in it was impossible to get it to cool the room below about 20C. The parking is fine - quite secure. Access to the town of Gaillac and to the motorway is quite convenient.
