After reading reviews I had high hopes for this place. The building itself is lovely and somewhat of an oasis in Valenciennes and the restaurant is in a great room with a lovely atmosphere. Our bedroom was adequate but poorly decorated and needed a general make over. The food was at best average, it reminded me of school dinners which... More

We booked here for last June, but have waited to review until now for two reasons. Firstly we wanted to write when we were not so angry, and secondly we had hoped that the owner may have contacted us as was promised by the night staff. The decor and cleanliness of this place cannot be faulted. However, we booked two... More

When several of our approved "corporate" hotels were unable to accommodate me in Valenciennes, I decided to give Auberge du Bon Fermier a try. I had eaten at their restaurant (which is among the best in the region), and loved the feeling of being transported back in time. The property once served as an inn, a place where stage coaches...

The Auberge du Bon Fermier is a very small hotel, so you are treated as a person (we asked for advice about where to buy cheese, and a special phone call was made to find the name of a local farmer.) The rooms are large and very comfortable, with wonderful wooden ceilings and the original windows and fireplaces. The restaurant... More

I have been staying at this hotel for over 30 years and it is still the best in the area, every room has its own appeal, staff and owner are all very freindly, and the food is of a very high standard. Food is not cheap but you get what you pay for and it is worth a go. Also... More

We happened upon this hotel and restaurant by chance whilst staying in Valenciennes on a christmas market tour. We did not book, but the restaurant soon filled up with locals. We were given a warm welcome, and shown to a table in the old stable. The restaurant is full of 17th centuary charm and even boasts an original cooking spit... More

Although we did not stay at the Coach House we did visit it for our evening meal whilst staying at nearby Le Domaine de La Frenaie. We were welcomed warmly by a young lady whose English was superb. We had a couple of drinks and were then taken into the restaurant which was formerly the stables. It oozed character and... More

My husband and I spent one night at this hotel on the way to the south of France. We were hungry and tired and could not find anywhere else to stay. The price of 140 Euro was more than we usually pay but we felt we deserved a treat. We had our dog with us and he cost an extra... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Comfortably established after four hundred years of existence.All spruced up, it offers its Henry IV style, interpreted with regional inspiration in its proportions, harmoniously decorated in total respect for the region and its history.When Louis XIV made his “joyful return” to Valenciennes in August 1680, the Auberge was called “A la Ville de Troyes”. A souvenir of the great fairs of Champagne, with the travellers, salesmen and drapers stopping in our town to rest and restore their strength.in the hearth, there would be capons and haunches of meat roasting with a stew bubbling in fat jugs, swaying with the bawdy songs which barely covered the sounds of horses and their hooves on the round paving stones in the courtyard.The inn had a great reputation; Jacques Fontaine managed the establishment until 1701 and its successors’ were still roasting in the fireplace in 1789. ... more   less
