Wow, if you drive down the streets of Bourg, you won´t expect such a place! Nicely renovated old houses, hidden between old brick walls. Very nive rooms, a pool table, als an exellent Rum-List at the bar. And the breakfast was outstanding (concerning french-breakfast style form a german view).

A very nice small hotel with charming rooms, all very clean and neatly done...you expect less that you then get and: they even have a billiard room and some sort of yakuzi on the 1st floor. Breakfast is not extraordinary but serves its purpose when you are there for a business trip, as I was then. To put it simple:... More

I was traveling for business purposes and stayed only one night. It was rather difficult to find the place. Upon arrival I was stuck in an attic room with almost no windows, and since I needed to eat something before going to bed, the person who attended me suggested room service, but to my utter surprise I was given heated...

Dear Madam, thank you for your comment about us. I'm sorry your stay was disappointing and i'm disappointed too. For room service, it is a new method we enjoy. The concept is cooked dishes, in a jar (or canned-food, i don't really know the translation) by a french new company. This process was elected best hotel innovation in 2013. It... More

This is a restored coach house with interested glimpses of its past in its design. The hotel has on site parking and a very helpful and accommodating proprietor who assisted us with dining choices and sightseeing. Rooms are nicely outfitted and are adequately sized. A very nice breakfast is available in the morning. The old city of Bourg-en-Bresse is just... More

We stayed here just one night to break our drive from Paris to Milan and weren't expecting a great deal but were very pleasantly surprised.

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."
