There's something incongruous (and mildly disturbing) about staying at a Best Western in France. Particularly when it's an historic property like the Hotel de France, where, if you look closely, you can find traces of a bygone elegance that were missed in the transformation to a standard Hojo I mean Holiday Inn I mean Best Western. The rooms are pleasant... More

Location was good, though parking a pain as the parking outside the hotel is for a maximum of 2 hours and cost €2 for every 2 hours though it is free after 7pm Hotel was acceptable, room was fine but nothing special, good breakfast but the whole experience was expensive, and there are cheaper better alternatives nearby

If you are in Bourg-en-Bresse as we were for a quick business visit but also one where you'd like to see a little of the town, then this is the best choice. It is an old traditional, in a lovely old building on one of the main squares. It is opposite the main bus point, so you can easily get... More

Very welcoming staff. Rooms clean and well presented. Beds really comfortable - a really good night's sleep! Very good dinner in the restaurant (we didn't book, but probably advisable if you want a table either on the decking/terrace, or by the windows)

Clean comfortable hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Room small and lift did not go to the 4th floor so had to cart suitcases up a flight of stairs. Good location close to town. Restaurant pricey and limited dining options in town. Walking tour of old town well worth doing and visit to Abbey a must.

A pleasant hotel in the town square. Staff were friendly and attentive and spoke good English (far better than our French!) Our room was large with a comfy bed and really good pillows - not so for some of the hotels we have stayed in. Bathroom was clean and well appointed and breakfast was plentiful, including scrambled eggs. Secure car... More

This hotel is in the centre of town at one side of a square. There is a very good restaurant incorporated into the building and a garage by the side. We were greeted by a friendly English speaking receptionist. Our room was not large but adequate for one night and had very efficient air-conditioning which was most welcomed. The lift... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on a road trip to Italy and found it very good. The room wasn't the biggest and had a strange "split" bathroom and toilet that could have been in one room, instead of having to go to one side for the loo and the other for the shower/bathroom!! Unfortunately our shower leaked all over... More

After 2 or 3 years we were once again travelling through France and decided to stay once again at Hotel de france, Bourg-en-Bresse. We were not disappointed as we found the welcome, the hospitality, the food, the facilities better than ever and will certainly return!
