That day a lot of my favourite places in the area with a better value for money ratio were closed, so it was the Cote saint Jacques for the second time in two years. The Champagne with appetisers on the terrace by the Yonne river is always a great moment there. The food was great and creative. The desert featured... More

We had a lovely room with a balcony looking onto the garden and river, with lots of space and every comfort. The indoor pool, jacuzzi and spa were excellent, and it was pleasant to stretch our legs walking into the old town and visiting its churches and ancient alleyways lined with extraordinarily beautiful old buildings. Complimentary tea was delicious. As... More

The location doesn't get much better than this, with beautiful views over the river. Simple but very comfortable and immaculately clean rooms. The restaurant overlooking the gardens is very pretty, the food imaginative and perfectly cooked. Lovely terrace for evening drinks, but order a half bottle of champagne instead of a couple of glasses. Breakfast is rather expensive.

We spent one night at La Cote St. Jacques on the trip back to Paris following a 12-day stay in Burgundy. Reading some reviews made me question making the reservation, but we did. My advice: don't think about it; go, if you have the chance! The hotel was magnificent. I can't say I appreciated all the details of our room's... More

We had a spacious suite with a river view terrace. The king size bed was very comfortable and there is a lovely pool and spa. The crowning jewel is the amazing restaurant with a lovely bar and terrace for pre and post dinner drinks. The staff were extremely helpful throughout.

This is a lovely hotel, with lots of facilities including an indoor pool, and spa. It is situated nicely on the river. But the main attraction is the restaurant. Don't miss having a meal there.

The reviews are very good, but our experience was incredible. Their location right along the river is spectacular so make sure you get a room with a river view and a balcony. It's worth the upgrade. The room was exceptional - large, great bathroom, wonderful balcony, incredible view - a room you don't want to leave. The service was great.... More

We were sightseeing in Joigny on a very rainy bank holiday Friday and fancied a coffee. This hotel looked lovely from the outside but a bit imposing for four bedraggled English people and a little dog. However one of the staff welcomed us in to the sitting room overlooking the river and served us lovely coffee and tea in beautiful... More

Back from La Cote St Jacques where we had booked one night to discover the promising restaurant, attracted both by its 3 Michelin stars and its Relais & Chateau label. On the positive side: nice location, large room with a nice view, pretty friendly welcome from the staff. Exceptional "soufflé with black truffles" as a desert. Very good bread. Great... More
