I stayed there in the end of May 2015. As a business traveler, I think the hotel was great for its location (Tramway stops just outside, and it is really city center), the room was quite and clean. The bathroom was quite big, and the people working there very helpful. The Brasserie downstairs is very decent, also I wouldn't call... More

The autoroute passes to the east of Clermont Ferrand - so should you. The 'Old Town' of Clermont Ferrand proves that the words 'Old' and 'Interesting' and 'Attractive' are not automatically interchangeable. Park in Parking Vercingetorix and walk to hotel. Ring bell repeatedly and loudly when ignored by waiting staff and someone will eventually turn up. Nice spacious room (mini... More

If you don't travel very light, don't visit this hotel. You cannot access the hotel in a car as it is in a pedestrianised area. No mention is made of this in the description. You can't even park alongside to gt luggage out. You have to go to the underground cr park, and then drag your luggage across the square... More

I spent five nights at this delightful, small hotel. The location was perfect - in the middle of town on the main square. The room was lovely, bright and clean, overlooking the square. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. The staff was very as accommodating and friendly.

Two couples stayed at this hotel in January 2015, using it as a base while attending a rugby match. The hotel has undergone a refurbishment and this has been done to a very high standard. Excellent rooms, fantastic bathrooms (we had front bedrooms and would recommend these as you have a view over the square. Breakfast was very good and... More

A beautiful hotel with outstanding customer service..... stayed with Hubby on a two day break. From booking to check out the service was outstanding... I enquired prior to booking about parking and within 10 minutes I had an email confirming the nearest parking and a special rate of 8.50 euros per day for city centre parking including a handy marked...

We have just returned after a two night stay here. We booked a family rom between three friends and had two inter-connecting rooms which was perfect. The hotel more than met our expectations with comfortable, clean and stylish rooms. The staff were very helpful and overall we couldn't recommend this place enough. We didn't eat in the restaurant but enjoyed... More

We stayed here for a rugby weekend with friends and had superior rooms with balconies on the first floor. The rooms are excellent: clean, uncluttered, newly refurbished with stylish ensuite bathrooms; the bed large and comfortable. Yes, the double glazing keeps out the noise perfectly but then you do have to resort to air conditioning or bake. Our friends tried... More

Nicely modernised building of character in central location on great square. Warm and professional welcome and clean room. No problem to eat take-away pizza at table outside, after their kitchen had closed, late at night. Price acceptable also.
