We went to the auberge "a la bonne idee" for a weekend get away, and our expectations were a small charming hotel, with a good restaurant to enjoy good food in a classic setting. And that was exactly what we got. We got a friendly and professional welcome, smooth reception process and guided to our room. The building is old... More

Restaurant exceptional for this area, I admit. However, it is not a "fantastic" or unique restaurant in the world. Bad service def brings down my motivation to return. -1st time: one question mark. -2nd time: ok -3rd time: the worst treatment I ever experienced. We were on time for lunch. We sit, the waitress is clear to show her frustration... More

We had an agreeable stay at the Auberge a la Bonne Idee. Dinner was excellent in the beautiful stone-walled dining room. The cuisine from our experience was traditional in style and extremely well executed. Service was exemplary. And then there was the room with a comfortable bed but almost no space. I have a "bonne idee" for the owners: Marley... More

What a gem of a hotel! We spent a night here on our way to southern France last July. Situated in a chocolate box village the hotel was comfortable and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The highlight of our stay had to be the meal we had in the garden restaurant. The setting was idyllic, the food excellent and... More

A great find. Charming Auberge in a very attractive village , conveniently close to Paris and convenient for the Autoroute for trips to the South. Querky but comfortable rooms but the food and service is stunning. One of the best - don't miss it.

We stopped here for one night on our way back up through France. We found ourselves in a room within a converted barn. The room itself isn't that bad, although the lack of little finishes let it down, but the real issue was the room doesn't have a window! The entrance door is all that lets light in leaving you...

We spent the night at the Auberge a la Bonne Idee on the way to Longchamps and the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. This was our second time at the hotel and I have to say it is a bit old fashioned (or just a bit French) in its attitude to guests! They strive for such high standards and end... More

Remarkable place St Jean aux Bois, time stood still for a couple of centuries. An excellent starting point to discover the neighborhood - walk through the woods all around many miles, visit Compiègne and the impressive romantic castle of Pierrefonds at close distances. This is the place to be for spending a calm and romantic week-end. Take a drink close... More

We were on honeymoon and checked into the Junior Suite we had booked. My wife was not that impressed with room and I was desparate for a room with a shower so we went... More

We stayed here based on the great reviews in the Times. The hotel was nice, room was good though the bed was on the small side. The bathroom looked like it had recently been refreshed and had a smart finish though annoyingly the holder for the shower head was irritatingly low (about 4 1/2 ft...). The restaurant was very expensive... More
