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

Booked this for a break in our journey en-route to the Alps based on the reviews on this site. Beautiful hotel, lovely rooms and staff very friendly and helpful recommending a selection of restaurants in town, all within easy walking distance. As per other reviews we did have breakfast and were very impressed with the selection of local produce which... 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.

I'm sure I read on TA that it was worth stopping in Bourg just to stay at this hotel. Well, I understand what they meant. Really helpful staff, a lovely if unorthodox room, a pool table (!) in a luxurious lounge area, a spa and THAT breakfast. All locally sourced and beautifully prepared and set out. I could have stayed... More

good morning, thank you for your review about the hotel. For us, breakfast should be an important moment and shouldn't be neglected. That's why we spend a lot of time to prepare it. Nothing comes out of a freezer and we are proud to work with almost local products from local growers, makers, artisans. Thank you again. See you soon.... More

It's the usual five star/four star dilemma. The Griffon d'Or is not a luxury hotel with extensive grounds and grand public areas, a Michelin-starred restaurant and Bulgari toiletries in the bathroom, but I'm going to give it five stars anyway. You can guess the reasons if you read the other reviews. Bourg-en-Bresse, pleasant though it is, is not a town... More

A good location for a night's stop if you are landing at or taking off from at Lyon and are driving (just under an hour). Center of town with everything within walking distance (google says 14 mins walk to the Monastere de Brou, it took us less than 10). Good parking in the hotel courtyard.
