Food and wine (especially from the surrounding area) are the gods here and Jean-Paul Jeunet the high priest. Although some of France's epicurian temples can be intimidating, this establishment is highly accessible. The welcome is cordial, the chief is highly visible, the restaurant service friendly and thoroughly professional and the wine recommendations justifiably deserve Gault Millau's highest commendation. Also justified... More

We had the most fantastic meal with friends in the hotels Michelin starred restaurant. This could not be faulted in any way. However, we were very dissapointed to be staying in the annex rooms in another street. We were made fully aware when booking that we would be in a the annex, which is fine, but the standard of the...

We first stayed at this hotel about 20years ago when the present proprietor's father was still in charge. It was then a simple but excellent place to stay overnight. Now with its two Michelin stars the restaurant is outstanding. The bedrooms are very comfortable and beautifully appointed. Arbois is a bustling small town with excellent opportunities to sample the region's... More

We have been looking forward to go back to this place we really enjoy 10 years ago and I must say we have been VERY disappointed. We took the grand tasting menu. It seems JP Jeunet is under the Alleno look a like trend. All the dishes look the same : doll portions, everything is smaller than small, sauces are... More

This was a stopover hotel on our way to Provence and what a wonderful start it provided. We booked a standard room which was located in the main hotel, maybe it did not have views but it was quiet, clean and had everything we needed, including waking up to the smell of fresh baking in the morning. We had made... More

As usual we were warmly welcomed by the staff including Monsieur et Madame Jeunet and were looked after very well. Some new staff since we last visited 4 years ago but have been well trained. Our Saturday night dinner was excellent Poulette de Bresse avec Vin jaune magnifique! We did miss Stephane, the original sommelier, but the new man gave... More

My wife and I stayed 1 night at the Jean Paul Jeunet Hotel and ate in the 2-starred restaurant. We pre booked a suite that was 200m from the main hotel, not a problem really, but considering it was -10 degrees that day we didn't fancy walking back after our meal. Also the rooms that are not connected to the... More

A very average overpriced meal. We had the two recommended dishes, lobster and chicken with vin jaune. Very average.The wine waiter was fat, sweaty and not good on recommending wine. The room was OK. Worse, my expensive car got damaged during the stay. The hotel offer secure parking. We gave the keys in good faith to the reception. The next... More

We booked a room in the "Le Prieuré Notre Dame", which is located 150 meters from the main hotel building. This is a magical place, a spacious room, a little kitchenette, spacious bathroom and shower and a lovely garden. The staff was very kind and patient. Arbois itself is a little place, don't expect a lively place, however I liked... More

We were told our room looked over an attractive garden. In fact it was a scrubby bit of grass facing a dismal dirty wall of a derelict house. The bed was reasonably comfortable, but the pillows were foam rubber. The room had a separate toilet - but with NO hand wash basin!!! There was a shower - but with no... More
