This is a charming hotel, with pleasant and well appointed rooms, in a iovely riverside setting. It's between five and ten minutes' walk from the centre of town. There is a pleasant outdoor terrace where you can sit and enjoy the view: we thought we may have a drink there but after a while it became clear we'd have to... More

Being in France on a bank holiday is taxing at any time but when you are staying on a canal boat with a 90 years young mum looking for a great meal we felt we may be in trouble. We had a drink in a really friendly bar in the old quarter in Joigny and the customers advised us to... More

We had heard about this restaurant from some Parisian friends and so when we found ourselves walking past the door we were tempted in by the very reasonable looking prices for their set lunch menus. No booking was needed and although the restaurant was not that busy the atmosphere was relaxed pleasant and professional and we had a very enjoyable... More

Booked in advance for Mums birthday meal at end of holiday. Beautiful riverside setting, fabulous gardens, but oh so expensive, for so little!! Slow service, average food, not as good as the cheaper restaurants during our week away.

We stayed here for the night prior to getting our boat for the canal cruise. The rooms are OK. The restaurant good. Note: the restaurant closes at 2PM. No options for food whatsoever when it's closed. The hotel is situated across the canal from town - 10 min walk.

We overnighted here before embarking on a Locaboat barge cruise. Perfect location, just a few steps from the Locaboat office. We had a "superior room" and it was very good, with a wonderful view of Joigny across the canal. Restaurant served excellent food, and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Restaurant Only: We were lucky enough to bump into this lovely restaurant when we stopped overnight at Joigny as part of a 1 week canal boat trip with France Afloat down the Canal du Burgoyne/Yonne river/Canal du Nevarnais. This turned out to be a wonderful evening with delightful food on the terrace restaurant. There was a good selection on the... More

Charming hotel extremely close to the Locaboat rental center in Joigny. Wonderful accommodations, very comfortable, clean, and a beautiful view. The best part for Locaboat clients is that it is a short walk to pick up your boat for the next adventure. I would recommend this hotel highly. Another great thing is that it is a short walk to the... More

I wasn't expecting the hotel to be much from the photo's that are on the website although the reviews are very good. I was very surprised. It's lovely! Our room was spacious, light and clean with a very comfortable big bed. The view from our Juliette balcony was over the river and onto the township of Joigny. For 11 euros,... More

This is a charming hotel with a fabulous restaurant situated beside the river in Joigny. We had a great room on the top floor at the end of the corridor with great views over the pond and gardens with a very groovy layout between the bedroom and bathroom. The room was very large and very comfortable. There is a lovely... More
