I arrived in a snowstorm at 10.30 p.m. without a reservation. The Hotel Mercure is on one of the radial routes into the charming French town of B-en-B.
The reception staff humoured my Z level Freench and discreetly switched to English and were friendly and welcoming. There was a pleasant ambiance. And a getting a good meal that late was no problem.
The room was lovely, albeit the pretty view of a town snowscape would not be year-round. Warm and well organised, with a touch of Gallic flair in the decor.
Breakfast was memorably good, although not included in price agreed the night before.
A very short stay, but enough for a recommendation
