“Our favourite hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We love this hotel and have been coming here for many years on our way to and from Salles Curan in Aveyron. Mr et Madame Tourette are most welcoming and have been extremely kind to us. One year when they were fully booked with a rugby team from England they put us up in their house in the village and garaged our very large trailer in Monsieur Tourette's brother's barn. The food is excellent. Jean-Paul is a very good chef serving wholesome regional fare - the best sort- authentic french cuisine.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We stayed here again this year on our way south and found that little had changed. We were greeted by Mme Tourette and given a nice room at the back overlooking the garden - this time with plenty of hot water! Not many people staying and, for some reason, this place doesn't seem to be frequented by tourists - rather by working people away from home on assignments locally.
Food excellent and copious - good French country cooking, and more than we could eat.
This is a very convenient stopover close to the main A75 autoroute and about half way between the Mediterranean and Paris (or the Channel ports) - It is also well situated for exploration of the Puy de Dome volcano coutry.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back overlooking the garden

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We have visited this hotel several times on our way from the south of France to the channel ports as it is very conveniently situated right in the middle of the Massif Central ,just off junction 13 of the A75 autoroute, and near the chateau of Parentignat. From the outside it looks rather forbidding but inside it is spacious and well furnished with a large dining room and bar. There are many bedrooms and there is the advantage of a lift to the first floor.
M and Mme Tourette, the owners, provide old fashioned French hospitality and copious amounts of good simple French country food. M Tourette is the chef and is ably asisted by Babette, waitress and general help, who has been with the hotel for many years.
The only problem we encountereed was inadequate hot water in the en suite bathroom and this could well be one reason why the hotel appears to have had one of it's stars taken from it. I hope this can be fixed. It is no longer a Logis as M Tourette prefers to remain outside this organisation.
