This was our only one night stop in a 17 day trip through France (2 nights at each other location. We booked the stop to break up the drive from Onzain (Loire) to Bort L'Etang in Rhone. The stay was pleasant, but one night was certainly enough. We had an MAP reservation in a superior room. Upon check in the... More

The Lion d'Or, an old coaching inn, lies in the heart of this sleepy country town, and was once the county town of the Solange. The town is easily explored with one or two good wooden-framed houses and a major car museum. The hotel retains its historical past while at the same time carrying modernisation without any difficulty. In several... More

Magnificent stay in this beautifully decorated hotel. Very friendly staff, perfect appointments. Unfortunately the restaurant is quite disappointing. A little too ambitious for people who really understand sophisticated food. Food comes out a bit tepid which doesn't help. Some of the young and inexperienced waiters and waitresses in the restaurant need additional training. Service in the hotel is very good.... More

The food was divine, the wine list incredible and the service was very friendly and efficient. The room was very practical and very clean, bathroom had all you needed. The breakfast, that we chose to have in the room was very generous, everything was fresh (juice and fruit salad) and the pastries and jams were excellent! Bravo and thank you!
