Great location near to the centre of Bourg-en-Bresse. Very welcoming and friendly staff. We had a superior room and it was faultless - easily equivalent to a typical 5 star European hotel room. Free onsite parking, a nice little jacuzzi, and a billiard room were available as well. Really one of the best city/town hotels I have stayed in.

We stayed here for just one night with two kids (2y/5y), who stayed for free in our room. The room is very spacious and with nice and modern furniture, the bathroom is big and nice as well, with a great shower. The location is just a few steps to the city-center with many restaurants and shops. They also have a... More

Good location, super friendly staff. Cozy bedroom, super comfy bed and awesome shower. Quiet and with onsite free parking. Small but super fresh local and organic breakfast products. Lounging area and spa on first floor. Definitely to recommend!! And great deal for the price.

good afternoon xxxlainyxxx, Lot of nice words, thank you very much for your comment about us. Your last words are the most important, i think. We are maybe the most expensive hotel of Bourg-en-Bresse, but we try to offer the maximum, with some free facilities : parking, sauna, hot tub, billiards, wifi. See you soon.

The Hotel Griffon D'Or stay was a shining example to the hotel industry. The proprietor was friendly and attentive, the suite of rooms was perfect and there was great attention to detail in everything from the bathroom to the breakfast. The hotel is as near perfect as you could wish for.

Excellent room (I had the 'superior' room), very short walk to center, free parking, and good quality internet. Room is boutique style, nicely modern, with desk and small sitting area. No wishes unfulfilled.

Stayed here whilst en route to Tuscany. Wonderful period building beautifully refurbished and the owner is charming. Rooms tastefully furnished. Very near the town centre but tucked away from the bustle.

Friendly reception and adorable hotel. Our room was amazingly large with a sitting room, alcove with a desk and comfortable king-size bed. Beautifully appointed room - modern and fresh!

How often do you drive into a city for the first time, head straight as an arrow to the city center, and turn right into a generous and safe parking space?
