A lovely village east of Paris and in a Quiet community in the middle of The Champagne region. A short stroll to a traditional pub For a few drinks and just watch the locals go by. Hotel has a unique old style Breakfast area and has excellent Service.

This is a lovely old style house with excellent features and a perfect location to explore the champagne makers. The hotel also have champagne cellars and if you ask them, they will take you on a tour and give you a tasting, including a video (in french) all for free. The hotel rooms are basic but clean, the bed was... More

Me and my Husband were in Ay to try and see the Bollinger caves but were unable to but really love the village so decided to find somewhere to stay the night. We drove past Castel Jeanson and fell in love, the receptionist was lovely, the hotel is absolutely charming. We had a superior room which was big, clean had... More

I stayed with my wife and 2 daughters at Castel Jeanson on the way down France from the Chunnel. It's a lovely family run hotel in a quiet village and was just what we needed. There's no dinner, so we ate locally which has limited choice without travelling to another village, but that wasn't a problem. Breakfast was great (extra... More

Owned and run by a champagne-producing, very hands-on family (Maison Henri GOUTORBE whose champagne house is just up the road), this hotel offers the equivalent of a guided tour of Windsor Castle and park by the Royal family itself. You're likely to have the immaculate, indoor pool, complete with murals, to yourself, too. Contrary to another reviewer's comments, all the... More

Clean, comfortable, well appointed spacious superior room. Peaceful location in this small town but within walking distance of several restaurants, cafe/bars. Although we did not bother with the breakfast on offer (at 14 euros pp) we did like the all day coffee/tea and biscuit help yourself facility in the lounge. We also valued the secure parking available. The owners, the... More

Is bit of a peculiar place: firstly be warned that reception closes at 8.30pm, which was never mentioned during any communications whilst booking with them and nearly caught us out as we were on a long drive from the Southern regions. The receptionists (both) I found were not very friendly or helpful, and wouldn't recommend somewhere to eat which seemed... More

Ay is the village where all the big champagne houses keep their tractors which are regularly cruising along the roads at high speed between yard and vine. This hotel is in the middle of all this action. A beautifully restored old building that is spotless inside with lovely large rooms. The lounge/salon is beautifully decorated with an impressive chandelier. There... More

You know how it is when foibles and lacunae are charming or at least no problem when you aren't paying too much, suddenly become major irritations at a much higher price? It's a bit like that here. It's the same with gyms. What's acceptable at £20 a month is infuriating at £160. So bye-bye to The Park Club and hello... More

Recently refurbished, this hotel is a gem. Everything was very well done. There are some smaller rooms, but our suite was spacious and well appointed. The bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom has a large shower and dual sinks. Breakfast is a little pricey but includes not only the usual beverages and pastries but also eggs, meat and cheese.... More
