“Great Meeting Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Used for a company meeting for staff from both Grenoble and Clermont Ferrand, this was a great choice. Facilities were excellent and the staff were pleasant and efficient, making it a successful meeting. I did not stay at the hotel but a colleague who did said that his stay was also very good

When I first arrived at the Hotel du Golf I was in awe at the colours and modern furnishings throughout the hotel and room. The location is a good 5 minute drive from other civilisation as it is located up a hill. It is also 50 minute journey from the aiport in Lyon. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The room itself was clean and quirkily designed with a deep pink colour theme. It came complete with air con, a TV and a safety deposit box, but no kettle with tea/coffee (which was disappointing). It was quiet enough but there still a sense that you were not the only person in the hotel.

The breakfast was well stocked and had a variety of hot and (mainly) cold options, as well as fruit juices, tea/coffee, etc. The restaurant food was exceptional, although somewhat highly priced. There were extremely well priced set menu options of differing price ranges, which I ate from on the two nights I stayed at the hotel. Both times the food did not disappoint and could not be compared to any food back in the UK (at least anywhere around the same price). Cocktails were also on offer at the bar, but were not to my sweeter rather than alcohol-overload taste buds.

The hotel also had a lovely pool, outside decking and bar as well as an outside restaurant seating area. Definitley a hotel to enjoy the warmer weather.

I was here on business and would stay here again given half the chance, but I would not stay here if holidaying in St Etienne because of the unlikelihood of me going to St Etienne on holiday (not because of the hotel in any way). The hotel is exceptional and I hope to go there again soon.

The hotel is located on the edge of the city, in a country area. I stayed there because it was close to a company I had to visit.
It offers some design features though the rooms are very basic. The bed isn't very comfortable and the desk looks a bit bulky. The bath room wasn't bad.
The lights that lighted the entry also lighted the curtain of my room, so the room wasn't very dark at night.

The restaurant offered some affordable dishes. I chose a steaks which was very good (The meat quality was very good, exactly the right couisson with a good pepper sauce).

Since they don't (seem to) have a 24/7 reception, I just dropped my key on the front desk upon leaving. Overall, the hotel was functional to me but nothing special.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, I'd recommend choosing a room away from the front lobby entry as the...
