The Hôtel Diderot ranks among the nicest places I ever have stayed. "Clean and comfortable" could describe almost any U.S. chain hotel, but Diderot is far better. The owners/managers are incredibly nice and helpful, the setting is convenient and access to it by car or foot is easy, and breakfast in the common room (the weather was cool while we... More

Lovely hotel and would certainly stay again. Breakfast is excellent & somewhat unique with up to 50 varieties of jam. It would be great if a set dinner could be offered as there would be plenty of takers. Very comfortable rooms & beds and modern bathrooms. Highly recommended.

Atmosphere and comfort are equally important to me, and Hotel Diderot did not disappoint in either. Our recently refurbished rooms were charming,... More

Both our rooms were decorated tastefully and both had newly renovated bathrooms which was a real treat. The public areas of the hotel were also a delight with exposed beams and a... More
