Our third visit to Le Cheval Rouge. Ideally located just off the A4 Autoroute around 200 miles from Calais, Sainte Menehould offers a convenient and relaxing stopover en-route from Switzerland or Italy to the UK. The rooms are clean and comfortable - nothing pretentious. Slightly old-fashioned perhaps, but not in a run-down way. Staff are efficient and helpful. A good... More

Stopped here on the way to Germany. The rooms are old style Auberge, clean and pleasant. Received good service with courtesy and minimum fuss. It was Sunday so the restaurant was closed but the food in the brasserie was first class. The atmosphere was friendly and it is obviously popular with locals. Easy parking. Relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in the... More

We stayed at this hotel on March 31st 2012 on our way to Germany. It's an unpretentious Logis de France which offers good value comfortable en-suite rooms with breakfast. There is free parking in the little road next to the hotel side entrance. The joy of this establishment is it evening menu with excellent local cuisine which belies the unremarkable... More

We stayed here again on the way back from a skiing holiday and once again were very happy. Ste Menehould is a rather sleepy, ordinary town with one very nice square - this hotel sits on one of its corners. The rooms are functional and good value (E55 for a double) but the restaurant (which was bustlng and full when... More

We stopped at this hotel en route to the South of France and so glad we did. The room was perfectly adequate and clean. We had an evening drink in the bar and thought that dinner would be served there. To our suprise, and delight, there is a really nice restaurant at the rear and the food was absolutely delicious....

very clean/ very convenient /very good food very handy for visiting varennes where marie antoinette and louis 16th were arrested in 1793. Sainte Menehould is a small town and this is the best hotel/restaurant.parking is free and the tourist office is close by.I would recommend this hotel to anyone

We stayed here on the way back to the UK from the Alps because we didn't fancy doing the journey in a single day (it's about 3 - 4 hours before Calais). We (2 adults, 2 kids) loved it. The staff were great, the rooms perfectly adequate and quiet. The food was really really good - and good value too.... More

We have been traveling through France a lot recently on the way back from Germany and stopping at random hotels along the way, many which were disappointing. This time we decided to book ahead in a location approx half way between Germany and Calais - and choose St-Menehould in the Champagne region. Here we found a quaint hotel right in... More
