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 one night to break our journey and we are so glad we did. The accommodation was first class and the staff extremely friendly. We would certainly go again and would recommend others to share the experience.

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. It's right in town but has easy parking (free, a nice surprise!). There is a really good atmosphere in the nicely restored old building and our room was a good size with a separate sitting... More

Recently restored /refurbished hotel of the highest quality, 300 years old but with every modern convenience & attention to detail. We only stayed 1 night as a stop over on our way home to UK from south of France but could easily have stayed longer. A very warm welcome from the charming owners & nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel is located near the town center of Bourg en Bresse. (500 m. walk) and offers free parking just in front. The hotel itself consists of 2 buildings which gives it an original layout and a very cozy atmosphere on the terrace. The team is very welcoming and makes you feel directly at ease.

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.
