We found Angouleme hard to navigate and the hotel would have been incredibly difficult to locate without a sat nav, but even so we found more information could have been provided on parking. In the end we had to park up and check in before we learnt that we there is no dedicated car parking but that the nearby multi-storey serving the shopping mall is incredibly reasonable (5 euros per 24 hours), well lit, clean and manned by ticket machines and guards which was reassuring. The room was basic and clean but very few of the tv channels worked (we attributed this to the heat), luckily the air con DID work and the door was controlled by a code rather than key or card which gave us an added sense of security. The bathroom was disappointing, incredibly cramped, the toilet seat was broken as was the toilet roll holder, but as we were just there the one night we didn't make a big issue of it. Would I recommend it again or stay there again? probably not, but only because we found driving into the centre of town and finding the hotel/parking too stressful and we would instead stay out of town if we visited the region again.
