Nothing was too much trouble for the splendid couple who run this hotel. The rooms were comfortable, the food was excellent and the feel of the place superb. I was travelling with a group of 25 people and was their leader, so finding ourselves at such a wonderful hotel was a bonus for me. Not only was everything about the... More

I enjoyed a very pleasant overnight stay at the Hotel de France in St. Croix on Sunday-Monday 21-22 September. The rooms are a bit basic but clean and well equipped. The dinner was excellent and the menus quite creative. A very nice breakfast followed a nice quiet night's sleep, as St Croix is a pretty quiet town. The best part... More

Stay in Hotel De France two times on business trips. Very neat, efficient and friendly operation by the owners and staff team. This time we have a twin-room and a special room with a view to the town church. Rooms are clean, beds comfy and WiFi works well. Sainte-Croix seems to be a quaint town but the hotel is quite...

Our stay was wonderful and we got looked after extremely well by Marina the owner, the hotel and rooms are great and we had brilliant meals in the restaurant. Was very sad to leave as Marina had made our stay so comfortable and enjoyable. We were on a 3 week cycle tour around Switzerland, France and Italy and our stay... More

This is a lovely, friendy, clean great hotel to stay at. The evening meals were really wonderful and breakfast very tasty. Loved it to bits. The staff are so helpful and friendly and saw them filling everyone's flasks for their days out walking in the mountains. One night the mens singing group were there and burst into song and yodelling... More

This is really a good place to stay and you will get good value for money. The owners can speak several european languages fluent and their english is excellent. They have also good knowledge of local food, history, places to visit and food.

Am very glad that Rolf and Marina now run Hotel de France, as like said by other reviewers, is a few steps away from the Leu Family's studio which has now settled in quiet Ste-Croix. Perfect for hobbling back to the hotel after what will probably be a session of epic proportions! Much better than heading down the mountains afterwards... More

Hotel De France is run by Marina & Rolf, two very kind and extremely accommodating hosts that often go beyond their duties to make you feel at home. The hotel feels very comfortable, clean and your privacy will never be a concern. The hotel is good for couples, families or singles looking to find nice accommodation in the Jura region.... More

I returned to Hotel de France one year on to find the owners, Marina and Rolf, just as hospitable and welcoming as ever. I spent 5 nights there and perhaps the most significant change was the improvement in the food. Given that there are few alternatives in Sainte-Croix, they may not have much opposition, but it takes great skill to... More

Very nice, but very expensive. It's the only accommodation still open in St Croix & there being 5 resident guests in June probably tells a story. Excellent but pricy food. Carry on a few miles to Vuitboeff to Hotel de l'Ours for cheaper accommodation.
