“Best value and fantastic setting for 1 Michelin * in the Jura”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

What a pleasant surprise - we had the 70 Euro 5 course menu for a special occasion (normal set menu 38E) and we were bowled over. The setting was very pleasant, about 1 hour from Geneva across the Jura mountains and by the lovely Lac de Joux. The reception and dining-room were most enjoyable, and the fresh food, all sourced locally, and excellent wines- made this a really 'must come again soon' experience. Merci to all.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but visited the bedrooms for another occasion (shown around by Madame Faivre/co-owner). Some of the rooms at the front are a little dated, by they have very nice Junior suites at the back, very reasonably priced.

“Great local cuisine at an excellent price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Faultless cooking from this Michelin starred restaurant. We chose the 36 Euro menu and it was the best meal I had on my 3 week trip, many costing far more. The trout was so perfectly cooked, moist and tender. The menu was all based around regional cuisine and the quality was very high. Don't miss the vin de paille dessert wine.

“Back again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

On our way to visite friend for the easter weekend, we decided to stop over at Malbuisson for the night and a meal. This time we booked the cheapest room at 78 euros. The room was quite basic but clean and cosy. Great for the price. This time round we decided to lavish out and have the ful gourmet menu and boy was it worth it. It was just heavenly, simplicity with great flavors. The "Grand dessert" was also a never ending flow of various small deserts ending with the one we were asked to choose when ordering. We also chose a good bottle of wine and were not dissappointed. I would strongly recommend the "Bon Accueil".

“The perfect inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Malbuisson may be a small village a dozen miles from the freeway route from Paris to Lausanne, Switzerland, but it's well worth the detour.
Almost facing the Saint-Point Lake, and a 10 minutes drive to Métabief ski resort, that's where stands the "Le Bon Accueil" hotel and restaurant, a perfect inn combining cozy and modern rooms with a top-notch restaurant.
Do not expect 5 stars accomodation, but local colour with all essential amenities ( complimentary Wifi, safe parking lot, flawless beds, spotless bathrooms, in a low-key yet elegant decor.
The food is splendid, a blend of local recipies, French classics and world cuisine. From starters to dessert, every choice on the selective menu is excellent.
And prices are very friendly by French standards.
Did I mention the place certainly fully deserves its name, meaning "great welcome"? You do get it, that's another icing on the cake.

“Perfect for a romantic weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

The food is good, typical of the Jura region. There is a large choice of wine. All this for next to nothing. The service is nice an friendly. I recommend to book a room for the night. The one we had was big, very clean and not too expensive.
