My wife and I with 2 children stopped off here on the way back from the Alps. It is well worth a visit in its own right and became one of the highlights of our holiday. The hotel is wonderfully charming, a 16th century staging post between Paris and Brussells that has been entertaining travelers ever since. Our room was... More

We booked this hotel as the town is close to the route of the Paris Roubaix - very close in fact. The charm and period features are wonderful and the hotel has been very sympathetically modernised. The restaurant is amazing - high standard food cooked in front of us made it very special.

We had been to this hotel some 15 years ago and found it as charming as we remembered. The only harm are the wooden stairs and floors, which make some noise. All the rooms are different and decorated with antics. Only in the bathroom you can find some modernity. There is also a good restaurant in the hotel. The breakfast... More

Another excellent stay at this quirky little hotel. I have stayed in most of the rooms now and all are completely different. Food is superb and the welcome and service always of a high quality. I did lose some sleep with a stag party going on in the square but this is the first time in 6 or more stays... More

Visiting a mohair wool craftswoman in the region we lunched here. Historic building, pretty red bricks and white stone awnings. (Beware the handicapped as the ancient cobble stones in the courtyard and the restaurant made walking very tricky).The folk up North in France have a disarming simplicity, they welcome you with kindness, it is very agreeable.The food was tasty though...

Stunning period style hotel, apparently 400 years old which still retains some of its quaint period features. Staff very friendly and helpful. We had a large room that overlooked the street. Other reviewers said it was noisy, although we stayed on a Sunday night and found it extremely peaceful. A short 5 minute walk and you are right in the... More

We booked this hotel for one night at the very last minute when we had to change our plans, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The Auberge du Bon Fermier has been an Inn since the 1500s and retains all its historic charm (including cobbled floors and narrow stairs), while having been renovated to a very high standard. Our room... More

We were looking for a stopover on our way south and Valenciennes seemed as good a spot as any and the Auberge Du Bon Fermier looked intriguing being a period building. The accommodation was a good size and the building certainly had character but because it is a period building you do not get bags of luxury not that we... More

Visited for Easter 2014, and found the hotel exceeded expectations. Family run premises and that comes through from every member of staff. Very atttentive and always willing to help/offer advice. The room was very nicely decorated and large in size. Beautiful separate bathroom and very comfortable bed. But the highlight of the trip had to be the restaurant and the... More

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
