The Pechery family will welcome you in this unique place , where you can enjoy great food - the son is now in charge of the kitchen , using all local food ,... More

Although a bit out of the way, a very nice place to stay and great restaurant. Alain and Catherine are wonderful hosts, the rooms are nice, and the restaurant is really excellent. I will be returning next time I am in France.

We stayed three nights demi-pension and one night full board and as usual were delighted with food ,drink, accommodation and service. We have stayed in this Auberge every year en route to the Alps since 2000 and cannot recommend it enough .The Pechery family have made this little inn a treasure in every way

We stayed here based on a friend's recommendation and were not disappointed. L'Auberge du Pot d'Etain is in a lovely little village, our room was modern, clean and comfortable, and dinner in the restaurant was absolutely terrific. Seriously, the worst thing I could say about our stay is that the shampoo in the bathroom isn't really what you'd expect from... More

I never write bad reviews so let me start by the only plus point of this place. Amazing wine list. But take my advice and stay somewhere else! We both ate in the restaurant and stayed in the b&b. My most shocking experience of bad service... from arrival until departure we met 3 members of the owner family. not one... More

Relaxed informal but friendly efficient dealings. Room perfectly good and value at 65 euros. Evening meal, again at 55 euros set meal good value. Escalope mousse as amuse bouche, promising. Unfortunately next two courses disappointing, well cooked but lacking both taste and coherent combination -hommard with strange ? soft meat slices, then cod with potatoe puree. Dessert, strawberry concoction with... More

This delightful, family run auberge is only a short distance from the motorway, but is a real oasis after a long day's drive. The charming rooms, flower filled courtyard and accomodating staff are very welcoming and the dining experience is memorable. The clean, pleasant rooms are furnished with antiques and have modern, up to the minute baths. The wine selection... More

Its pretty difficult to book this place unless you speak French, but arriving after a long drive up from the south coast, we were extremely glad we perservered to book this little hotel. Its situated in a pretty village not far off the A6 and run by a family, obviously with high standards of professionalism and perfectionism. Our room 1... More

I can only comment on the restaurant and not on the hotel. This is a very typical French place (which in my mouth is a definite compliment) with good solid regional food, friendly service but above all the most amazing (Burgundy) wine list you can think of. A strong point is that when asked for recommendation, the staff goes for... More

This family run hotel is excelllent value for money. Situated in a pretty village just off the A6 motorway, a great stopover. Good food and remakable selection of Burgundy wines.
