“Friendly but shabby room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

This hotel is the same as hundreds of others in France in this price range. The staff were friendly but the whole place was dated, faded and shabby. There was a large piece of peeling wallpaper in our room, which was otherwise clean and the furniture had definitely seen better days.
Breakfast was standard bread and croissant in the huge dining room - very French.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2011

We have stayed at the Relais a number of times over the past ten years for holidays in the Auvergne. Catherine and Jean-Lou Mallet, the couple who run the hotel and restaurant, have always given us a wonderful, warm welcome and made sure that during our stays in Issoire the Relais really felt like a home away from home. The rooms of the hotel are spacious and clean. The food in the restaurant is consistently very good, with traditional French and Auvergnat dishes. The atmosphere is relaxed and especially in the summer it is wonderful to eat outside and watch the busy life of the town go by. Even after quite a few visits there are still many things left to do in the area around Issoire, so we'll definitively be back again soon!

Room Tip: Room number 6 is particularly spacious and quiet!
