The location is just in the middle of the Avallon village, walking distance from the church & restaurants. The stuff is extremely nice. Nice big comfortable room. Recommended for young as well as older people.

We had stayed at this hotel on two previous occasions and had very high expectations but we were disappointed. In the past the restaurant had a wonderful a la carte menu but this is no longer the case. Two set menus were on offer both with a very limited choice with absolutely nothing that appealed....and we are not fussy eaters.... More

My husband and I were travelling with our youngest child, a boy of 12 and he was enthusiastic in his appreciation for the room. The bathroom is stocked with toiletries, there were bathrobes-wow! and the beds were comfortable. The location can't be beat. Staff was friendly, helpful and competent. The brioche at breakfast was out of this world! I'll never... More

The excellent served lunched outside was out of a small choice of posibilities, but small portions and very tasted!! The starter with salmon had a very nice sauce and the main dish of meat was well ballanced. The desert was simple, creme brullee, but was home made and had an excellent taste. These three courses for only euro 16,-.

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...

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
