This hotel is in a central location. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was good value, however the dinner, served in a magnificent room, was a little over priced for what it was.

Been staying here en-route to the South of France for the last thirty years. Something of a tradition and we always look forward to the food. In the early years it was pretty much untouched since the time of Napoleon. One guide book put it 'in gentle decline since 1750' which rather appealed, to me at least. In 1994 we... More

This was a last minute stop over as the traffic from Provence was awful. The exterior looks promising but inside is disappointing for the price - just generally tatty and a bit musty; all new decor and fixtures / fittings are desperately needed; very small bathroom with peeling wall paper and water marks all around the window, the toilet was...

I stay here every year and am met with the best service I could hope for. The hotel has a charm all its own and wonderful ambiance. The people are lovely, breakfast is just right and coffee and pastries delicious.

Avallon was the half way point on horse-driven trips from Paris to the south in the old days. Now by-passed by motorways it has sunk in importance but retains a lot of old world charm in the town centre. Its a fascinating place to visit still en-route and the Hostellerie is still part of the "old world". Seduced by pleasing... More

A lovely Hotel spoils by the Evening meal-Amuse Bushe was not cooked -the Walnut bread was not fresh and I object to having butter saved in foil packets straight from the freezer. The starter was raw salmon with mango not very inspiring

Dear Howard, We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your dinner. For information you have to know that the "terrine" that was served as "amuse bouche" was homemade by our cook. Our menu often changes, and we have pay attention on your reflexion about the butter. We absolutly need the feedback of our clients to improve our services. Best regards More

This is an average hotel. It does however have huge rooms and large bathrooms with tubs, with plenty of amenities and fluffy clean towesl. Very comfy beds with nice bed linens. Prices are fair.

Avallon was a stopover on our way back to our home in Italy from the UK ... What a GREAT choice we made. Room 44 was an attic room and was ABSOLUTELY Delightful.
