According to Trip Adviser's reviewers, the best option for eating in Ste-Croix is a place called Café 12. But my hill walking trip was on a Sunday when it was closed and I didn't fancy the local kebab house or a gloomy tea room, so I went to the Hotel de France. The restaurant is called Bistro 77 and it... More

In the heart of St Croix in the Jura mountains, this hotel has everything you could wish for. It is run with clockwork efficiency ensuring that guests have the most relaxing stay possible! Dinner was yummy. Rooms very comfortable. Excelled wi fi. Prices very reasonable. Just the thing after a day in the mountains!

Nothing was too much trouble for the splendid couple who run this hotel. The rooms were comfortable, the food was excellent and the feel of the place superb. I was travelling with a group of 25 people and was their leader, so finding ourselves at such a wonderful hotel was a bonus for me. Not only was everything about the... More

I enjoyed a very pleasant overnight stay at the Hotel de France in St. Croix on Sunday-Monday 21-22 September. The rooms are a bit basic but clean and well equipped. The dinner was excellent and the menus quite creative. A very nice breakfast followed a nice quiet night's sleep, as St Croix is a pretty quiet town. The best part... More

Stay in Hotel De France two times on business trips. Very neat, efficient and friendly operation by the owners and staff team. This time we have a twin-room and a special room with a view to the town church. Rooms are clean, beds comfy and WiFi works well. Sainte-Croix seems to be a quaint town but the hotel is quite...

Am very glad that Rolf and Marina now run Hotel de France, as like said by other reviewers, is a few steps away from the Leu Family's studio which has now settled in quiet Ste-Croix. Perfect for hobbling back to the hotel after what will probably be a session of epic proportions! Much better than heading down the mountains afterwards... More
