    We normally stay right in the centre of Reims. Underground car parking under the high street and several hotels to choose from.

    The hotels do discounts on the parking fees.

    Excellent selection of bars, cafes and restaurants to chose from without leaving the high street.

    If you email me I will dig out the names of the hotels, restaurants and cafes we use.

    may not be far enough down for you but i’m stopping here later in the year on way to morzine, the private parking swung it for me;

    Stayed at Tinqueux Campanile last Sunday. Just north of Reims, straight off peage, about 10 hotels to choose from, all budgets.
    Big supermarket to refuel car etc, 24 hr McD’s if you get desperate

    I’ve stopped there at a Formule 1 just on the outskirts. Nice town center to wander around:

    Evenin all. Thinking of breaking up this years journey to Switzerland instead of doing it in one hit. Can anyone recommend anywhere sort of Reims/Troyes (ish)area which would be about halfway. All budgets considered. Bike safety would be good.Thanks

    I stayed at a little motel type place in the village of Berry-au-bac just north of Reims a couple of years ago. This place.

    It was clean and functional and just off the motorway, It has parking directly outside the rooms with a gate which is locked at night, but you could actually put the bikes in your room if you wanted to.

    Every time I’ve stayed in France as Formule 1 style place, I’ve just had the bikes on the back seat of the car – never had a problem with them. Likewise, they lived on the back seat when camping etc.

    I’ve done the tinqueux f1 a couple of times. Pretty much what you’d expect for €27 for a room for 3. Bike safety wasn’t an issue for me as we were in the van.

    The Relais St Jean in Troyes was fantastic the couple of times we stayed there a few years ago. Underground parking right by the entrance to the hotel, too. Troyes is a lovely town with some excellent restaurants.

    The Relais is a very modern hotel in what looks like a medieval building – works really, really well. Would go back like a shot if we were in the area.

    on the other end of the scale. We normally camp here to break up the journey. Nice small, well run campsite with a lake across the road and a nice pizzeria on the lake front. Nice ride around the lake on the bikes too

    Any Formule 1, Etap, Campanile, BB, Premiere Classe, Balladins etc… on the way should do if all you want is a place to sleep.

    We stayed in one in Chaumont a few years back, was still typical Formule 1, but not smack bang next to the motorway. Chaumont was a nice place for an hour or so wander round and an evening meal.

    If you want something a bit better than the usual motorway hotel, I’m writing this sat in the Hotel Magellan in Épernay. Great rooms, great breakfast and well located. Good value too. It’s been a nice couple of days going round the villages tasting… hic….

    Slight resurrection, also needed somewhere in Reims. Got this on a Saturday night for just over £50. Seems ok for city centre. (Travelling with baby so kitchen with microwave looks handy.)

    peteimpreza, any chance you could recommend cafe/bar/restaurant please? Ta. 🙂

    I’ve camped there and loved it, the local villages all have a co-op for making the champagne where you can get Champagne sooooo cheap, I got a van full last time

    Watching this with interest, we are aiming to spend some time in Reims on the way to Annecy, but as we are travelling from Central Scotland it might be a bit far to reach in one go..
    Looking for something off the beaten track with a keen eye on bike security…

    I stayed at the Campanile motel at Troyes just up the road, the place seemed to be full of benefit migrants drinking & smoking on the balconies (it’s deck access rooms), calling to each other into the early hours.

    A really horrible and threatening night’s stay.

    Never again

    Whatever you do go to Waida chocolate/patisserie shop. It’s amazing…
