Tried and tested Motels in Europe.

Postby RollingCars » Friday 26 December 2008, 20:27

Found some good motels over the water this year. Post yours, its always handy to know what they're like before you book and part company with your money.

1. Servus Hotel Europe Walserberg South ***
Customs Straße 4
A-5071 Wals
This motel is on the Austrian-German border on the A1 motorway between Munich and Saltzburg in the old customs area. Rooms for 1 -4 persons at €54. Great food in the cafeteria, didn't have time to try the resturant. No secure parking, but hotel guests have there own spaces and a uniformed security man patrols the truck park and car park. Try the Weiner snitzel XXL with french fries washed down with ltr. of Zipfer. Magic !

2. Etap Hotel Aachen Raeren Grenze
Aire de repos de Lichtenbusch
4731 Raeren
Belgium
Again this motel is on the motorway A3/E40 about 10km from Aachen. Its handy if you can't drive to Calais because of tiredness. Its €42 for a three person room. Breakfast is extra as is the motel above. Clean, quiet, a/c and security people wondering about.

3. Ibis Dieppe Val Druel
Rue de la Vieille Grange Le Val Druel
76200 Dieppe
France
About 5 minutes drive from the centre of Dieppe along side a shopping centre. Good private parking, tipical Ibis hotel style, breakfast extra, clean and comfortable. Room rate is between €48 & €58 depending on day of the week and season.

4. Hotel Résidence du Golf
745, Digue Gaston Berthe
62100 Calais
France
Right on the seafront in Calais towards Blériot Plage. Really handy if the ferries are playing up. Unusual motel, but not unpleasent. Clean and warm, breakfast is a buffet and eat as much as you like but is a extre on top of the room rate of €45 to €68 depending on the usual variables, Day/season. If this motel is full then try the Kyriad next door thats good too.

When going over almost as important as the passport is the Etap directory book. Cheap clean no frills no restraunt but always have a couple of local reccomended places that are usually very good. Good coverage in France and Germany usually a reasonable secure car park and they are not van snobs. If feeling flush Ibis is the next choice or if out at the weekend go to the poshest hotel in town and blag a rack rate room for about £40 a night including breakfast - great after a couple of rough nights away to soak up the luxury. If in Copenhagen(and other major cities in Denmark) try the Cab Inn chain. Tiny rooms but clean etc and at about £50 very good for that country.

A10 Labouheyre South of Bordeaux

Not a hotel just a lovely old English couple with plentiful secure parking with CCTV, workshop facilities, and a selection of cheap and cheerful mobile (non geograhpically static apartments) homes. Or you could just use the parking place and your hatcher if you're that way inclined...

Contact me for the number/details, and yes, its a bit of an advert for the 'rents in their retirment...
