This hotel is fabulous! In the perfect location in Bourg-en-Bresse and operated by a wonderful family. We loved it!! Great character, hospitable service and one of the best breakfasts we had in France. Be sure to have a glass of wine in "La cave."

We stayed here as a stopover en route to Tuscany and it was a perfect choice. Somewhat hidden away, it is a beautifully renovated old building with modern, good quality amenities. The host was very helpful and we would stay again happily.

We stayed at Le Griffon d'Or as a night stop on the way back home from the Italian a Lakes. It is a really charming boutique hotel in a beautifully modernised 300 year old building. The proprietor personally looks after you with charm and good humour and the rooms are delightful, clean and beautifully furnished. The hotel's attention to detail... More

We had 2 nights here on route down to Italy. Selected it from TripAdvisor as usual and it was even better than anticipated. It's a small, boutique style, very stylish, smart hotel for a stopover. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. They recommended a splendid restaurant a short stroll away and even booked us a round of golf nearby.... More

A party of 6 of us stayed here on our way to skiing in February 2014. I booked this hotel after reading the excellent reviews and was still pleasantly surprised. The Hotel is excellent and the service superb. There are good restuarants nearby and the secure private parking is a real bonus when travelling in a car full of ski... More

We used the Griffon D'Or to split our journey to the Alps. Turned out to be an excellent choice. The Hotel was renovated just a couple of years ago to the highest standards. The rooms are all individually decorated (we managed to get two adjoining rooms, handy with younger kids), it has a relaxing lounge with a pool table, and... More

Good evening Chrisssyb..., thank your for your comment about our hotel. It's true Bourg-en-Bresse is ideally located way to the south (Alps, Italy, Côte d'Azur...). That's why we have more and more regular families during february and march week-ends. See you again. Aurélie et François André More

Chose this hotel as it was approximately half way to Calais from the Riviera and had excellent reviews. We certainly weren't disappointed. Free town centre parking, English speaking staff and the building is just fantastic. Rooms were a delight, couldn't fault them. Had a great nights sleep and a good breakfast. If you're visiting the area, this is the place... More

This hotel was an oasis after a turbulent week. The service was personal, the room was spacious, tastefully appointed and comfortable. The breakfast was lovely as was the hot tub. Not a luxury hotel but a charming boutique hotel that is easily the finest hotel in the area.
