This hotel is beautifully decorated with spacious rooms and fabulous bathrooms. The restaurant is expensive, but not if you take the set menu. We had 3 courses and were actually served 6, with amuse bouches and petit fours etc. A la carte certainly looked pricey but our menu was the best food and value for money we had in France... More

Selected as a stop over treat during a long drive from Spain to UK through France. Good food but very expensive - €197 for 2 for started and main, no sides, with 1 bot of wine and no desserts. We were asked to order our dessert before our starter was served so the chef could make dessert ready before he... More

Hello, Thanks you for sharing your remarks, However, we are surprised of your comments It seems to have a misunderstanding about your dessert order. For some of our desserts there is 20 minutes of waiting, that's why we ask you before, if you want one of them. But Under no circumstances it is because the chef has to go. Sincerely... More

My husband & I along with our 17 year old son decided to break up our journey from the south of France to home near Paris. We saw that Montluçon was a perfect place, but more than it's location, a hotel-restaurant well worth savouring. No regrets... Fabulous cuisine, warm welcome , great service.we highly recommend Le Grenier à Sel!!

Reading other reviews we wondered what the evening would be like. We did not book but turned up and given a table with no fuss. Such a delightful meal. Starters salmon with quinoa and gazpacho de tomates (absolutely delicious), mains lapin and fish followed by dessert. This does not take into account the amuse bouches, etc. OK there were some...

Stayed overnight enroute from North to South --- The "Melanie" bedroom was charming and very comfortable and the bathroom was fabulous. Dinner was delicious, but on a Saturday night charged a la carte --- a common French trick which greatly increased the cost of our stay. Service was patchy --- probably not enough staff for the diners. At 12€ per... More

This hotel is located in the heart of the medieval city and the room we stayed in was really beautiful, comfortable, and good value for money. The hotel staff however told us we had booked the dinner, although I had no memories of doing so. This is a nice but expensive restaurant, and it represented an unexpected extra cost to... More

The place looks quaint from the outside, but inside it is very charming and well done up. A lot of details we're put into each room, making them all very individual. Service and staff was top notch, and the room was very quit. The bed can be adjusted electronically with a remote, something rarely found in hotels. Restaurant was very... More

A one night stay with dinner bed and breakfast. Very efficient staff who rushed out to give parking instructions which we couldn't understand. Parking is very tight in a small courtyard accessed through a narrow arch - which is itself approached from very narrow streets. A fabulous bathroom and a comfortable room with vaulted beamed ceiling. Dinner was of a... More

There is no doubt that this hotel is in an outstanding building, has real charm and is well run. But what spoils it are the ludicrously high prices (£25 for a SALAD!!!) and the money grabbing attitude that is shown in virtually all contact with the hotel staff. For example, shock horror was shown, and my wife and I were... More

We were passing through Montluçon and wandered down to the old town to find a restaurant. Le Grenier de Sel is a hotel tucked away in a side street. The restaurant, which is made up of several rooms, was well patronised, so we had a wait for a few minutes for another room to be opened up. The hotel is... More
