We chose to stay here because of the recommendations for the restaurant. What nothing tells you not their website ,the hotel information in the room or the menus is that the restaurant is closed Sunday evening or at least it was last night. I had the feeling Madame just could not be bothered. She did not want to open the... More

We happened on this gem by chance, having driven several kilometres out of our way to avoid a motorway closure. When I went to enquire about room availability, I thought it resembled more Fawlty Towers than Le Manoir, oh was I surprised! Madam, who is front of house, was very helpful as it was getting late I asked if we... More

We have eaten here twice and decided to stay for a night this time - early October mid week. Vitry-le-Francois is a delightful small town and in champagne country too. Our French is not good but we still managed to have great fun with the lovely couple who own this little hotel and restaurant. We were so touched when they... More

Returned ( again ) to the gem that is the Hotel de la Cloche. Rooms comfortable , if a little faded, but great location on this small , genuinely French town. There is a suite if that's your style . Mme Sautet is a star, welcoming guests in her inimitable way, ensuring her guests needs are provided. The food in... More

I was surprised by how few hotels there are in this town, so choice is limited. The Hotel de la Cloche has obviously seen better days, and really could do with some investment. Having thus damned it, it was clean and comfortable, central to the town, and had secure parking (charged) - even though there is plenty of on-street parking... More

One of the best in the Town. Vitry le Francois is very small and if you expect the standart of Intercontinetal , please not stay in this city , but.....if you like cosy french style in champagne area with excellent food and nice staff it is a place for you. Rooms are not modern (but not old) ,clean and huge.... More

Stayed here yesterday and found the lady on reception very confused and appeared to be in a bit of a panic as we asked for a room that we had booked a few weeks ago. The chef showed me to the garage so I could park my motorcycle securely which was appreciated but he couldn't raise a smile and was... More

A warm and good-natured greeting from Madame was a precursor to an enjoyable stay. When asked if the restaurant was good, she observed that the chef was fat so it must be. Our mutual efforts to communicate were quite amusing but effective. Rather than the formal restaurant, we ate at the hotel Brasserie and had a delicious, reasonable dinner. All... More

It starts with a delightful welcome from 'Madame', continues with a comfortable room and then there is the highlight of the Jaques Santet restaurant. We have been travelling in France for many years and this has become a favourite stopover. Added to the foregoing is it's central location and secure parking. Our only disappointment is there is no bar. A... More
