We only decided to stay at this property at short notice and we are so glad we did. The rooms were beautiful (including a mini bar fridge) and the bathroom was amazing. For once the spa was truly large enough for 2 people and much larger than those small corner spas that so many places put in. The shower was... More

We have just returned from our holiday in france and spent most of the time at La Cardinale. We received a very warm welcome and a room with an amazing view. Straight to the pool over looking the hills and the Alps in the distance, relaxing in a beautiful setting. Dinner was served to a fantastic standard with local produce... More

Le Cardinale was a lovely surprise. It is a beautifully restored bed and breakfast is located on the west bank of the Northern Rhone tucked away from the road. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms are huge. The property has a lovely pool, garden and the rooms away from the main house are like having your own private villa. I loved... More

I booked this on the strength of reports on Trip advisor and was not disappointed. I needed a one night stay near the Ardeche with a family room and a decent restaurant. This not only met the criteria but supased it by miles. We had the family suite which was huge and very interesting, never stayed in a room with... More

Wonderful night here. Swimming pool facilities great. Room nice and secluded and we really enjoyed the little private patio and garden. The food in the evening was just amazing and the setting just the icing on the cake so to speak. Breakfast could have been a little more varied for the money - would have liked a bit of protein...

La Cardinale is one of those places you see in a magazine and hope to experience one day. The suite we stayed in had a king size bed, beautiful furniture and accessories, a large bathroom with double sinks, oversized bathtub and shower. The patio area had a little table and chairs and two chaise lounges. Our dinner in their dining... More

This is a very impressive and delightful small hotel and lovely restaurant. The owner/staff were delightful. The accommodation is tucked away from the restaurant to an extent that you hardly know it is there. Pool, full bathroom, privacy all excellent. We had a delightful meal and we would recommend this hotel.

We stayed in this beautiful hotel for three days last August. The rooms were huge, decorated in local style, very clean and comfortable, the service unobtrusive, the location very quiet, the pool huge. The best thing was the restaurant. Although the menu was very limited, everything was perfect. Next to us was a family with several children, and they were... More

East to find, quiet rural setting. Very friendly and welcoming. Lovely room with vast bathroom suite. Ample parking. Superb dinner, excellent service and plenty choice at breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely detour to stay here again.
