5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

I have stayed at the Hotel Plaisance on a number of occasions in the past on business and have always found it to be a nice hotel. Visiting again this March, this time retired from work and with my wife, I found the hotel had been refurbished to a very high standard. In particular the breakfast and bar areas were light, modern and comfortable.
As before the members of staff were friendly, attentive and welcoming. The room was also comfortable, well decorated with tea and coffee facilities (not always found in continental hotels) mini-bar and free wi. The breakfast was excellent with meats, breads, cheeses, cakes and comfitures plus the addition of scrambled egg and bacon.
All in all a very good hotel, and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone visiting or passing through Villefranche.

Very comfortable and well maintained rooms.The deco is quite nice, bathroom is very pampering. I found an electrical kettle and a minibar in the room which is nice in winter when you don't want to get out although the hotel is in the very center of the town.
The breakfast is delicious, good croissants and 'petits pains au chocolat', and you can ask for an expresso which is not standard in Europe.
I was there for 3 nights and really enjoyed. The hotel has 3 stars and worths them and more!

Room Tip: I had a room by the square and it was nicer than by the back court I assume

Stayed at the plaisance on several occassions on business trip. Very quiet, friendly and clean. Very close to several restaurants within walking distance... something not be underestimated after a long and hard day of meetings at the office.

Pulled off the motorway and found this hotel by sat nav locality, went for it as recognised the Best Western brand. Very friendly staff nicely decorated room with all facilities, tea, coffee, wifi, fridge, decent TV. Due to one night stay and late arrival just visited a bar around 200 yards away but the hotel is in the town centre so their is plenty of choice. You won't go far wrong booking this hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

Have stayed here when travelling on business several times in the past 6 months. The location is nice in a small town in the southern Beaujolais. It is in town, walking distance to several restaurants, with free (although limited) parking. If you have a car, make sure you are at the hotel by 7 PM - or parking in the free lot behind the hotel will be full and you will have to park in city parking. It is a rather quiet town, the town shops close down at 6 , except for the bars/restaurants. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the train station which has an easy trip to Lyon & the connecting stations from there.

The hotel staff is generally very friendly. English is spoken by all. Breakfast is expensive (11 Euro) for the rather limited offering- typical European 'buffet', coffee, juice, local breads, meat, cheese, cereal, and eggs. The rooms are typical European, small by American standards, but typical for Europe, with bed, desk, small flat screen TV, shower, separate toilet in the room. Beds are OK. The room does have a refrigerator with drinks - 3 Euro for beer, soda, etc... Rooms are very clean and somewhat modern. The A/C & heat are in room, but very quiet & functional The hotel does have a bar - but the only ones who use it are guests - and it is manned by the front desk person - so little 'bar atmosphere'. There are a couple of good bars down the street - an Irish pub, a couple of typical French neighborhood bars that would be a better solution. Sveral small restaurants are alos an easy walk. Wireless is free with a code from the front desk - somewhat spotty service & can sometimes be slow, but it is free.

Overall, if business brings you to the area, it is a good option compared to other hotels in the city. If you are on holiday, there are several smaller hotels in Beaujolais countryside that I would choose first.
