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

If you blink while arriving at Joigny you will miss the town, but that's ok because it will avoid you the disappointment of staying and eating at the "Cote St Jacques". I had read many of trip advisor's reviews and hesitated going, but decided to take a chance... What a mistake! The rooms are 70/80s style and have obviously not... More

We came for the food, but the hotel looked appealing enough for us to decide to splash out on the room, and we were very satisfied with it. The hotel spans two sides of a main road, but has an internal underground passage linking each side - a lovely quirky touch. The staff were fantastic, and made us feel extremely... More

This is Relais Chateau and the price reflects it. We stay there probably once every 3 years en route through France. We cannot fault the attention to detail and the kindness of the staff - whose numbers almost exceed the guests in the winter. The food is very good but a little too heavy for modern palettes at times. There... More
