We stayed force night in a superior standard of room. The greeting by the young lady on reception was lovely, very friendly and warm. The hotel has been modernised in parts with various LED lights and curious fittings in the bathroom by the restaurant, other parts (corridors) could do with updating. The room was spacious and comfortable enough. The service... More

Truffe Noire is an older establishment with charm, and free, easy-to-access wifi. A wood-burning fireplace welcomes you on arrival. An elevator is available, but why miss out on the old fashioned staircase circling up towards the rooms? The hallways are decidedly dark and gloomy and haven't been remodeled yet, but the rooms themselves are modern and clean. If you want... More

This hotel did not have a welcoming feeling. The walls in our room were mustard yellow and made the room very dull. There was this little hall into the main bedroom with no light so it was scary to think what may happen if there was a fire. The lobby smelled like smoke and the air conditioning was very noisy,There... More

Returned to this hotel after a twenty year gap. Quality has not been maintained. Rooms are very ordinary, service very basic although receptionist Claire did her best to be most helpful. Food was nothing to write home about -particularly as we were looking forward to good hearty local fair. Best that can be said - close to town centre.

This is now our third time staying at the Truffe Noire, and it never disappoints. It's a great stopover if you are driving through France. It's really old-fashioned, but in a good way. Rooms are really quite large, and good value for the money. We had plenty of space for my family - good sized bathroom, and great beds. Restaurant... More

A beautiful hotel with gorgeous gardens in which you can dine. The food being of the highest standard. The staff make you feel very welcome and the rooms are spacious with windows... More

Our one-night stay at La Truffe Noir, situated next to the old town centre of Bourges, was very pleasant. We were travelling with a rather ancient Guide Michelin (rouge), where it was well reviewed, so I had phoned ahead to book with fingers crossed, but we were certainly not disappointed. The hotel is a little on the old-fashioned side, but... More

I stayed at this Hotel as part of an Insight Vacations tour of France. The Hotel was very clean and the room was spacious and nice. The bed and pillows were both very good. It was let down by the food. Dinner was OK, but not much more than average.Breakfast was a total disaster....3/10. A very poor selection of everything.... More

We stayed for one night at the beginning of September. It was a comfortable room, we would rate it as 2* rather than 3* but the beds were comfortable and it was a good size. No air con which meant we had to have the windows open onto the street which was noisy when the street cleaners came round early... More
