It's in a pristine little village adjacent to Arbois and it is not all that easy to find, but well worth it. You have to go down some really tiny roads outside of Arbois that look like they are going nowhere, and the hotel is at the very end of it, once you reach Les Planches-pres-Arbois. The place is nestled... More

Very nice hotel at the Jura country side. In the middle of nature. Good food especially the deserts. We stayed for 7 nights at half board with a verying menu every night. Staff was very nice and helpful.

We met a friendly staff, who was willing to go the extra distance to meet our needs. We stayed at the main house and found it both interesting and romantic. The mattress in the bed was of good quality, and the poster bed was both squeak free and clean (as was the entire room). It was however a bit shorter... More

The location of this hotel is lovely, in the middle of the Jura contryside, near a river. But that's the only good thing about this place. The first thing that struck us when we walked in was a dirty smell, which was everywhere in the building and never left the place. Make sure you don't look at the floors, they... More

We were returning from Italy this summer and for a change took a chance on finding a hotel along the way. This turned out to be harder than we thought originally, so much of the Jura seemed to be depressed little towns with not a lot going on. That maybe unfair, it was summer and people could have been away... More

We stayed here with another couple. Our room was fine, being at the rear of the hotel overlooking the millpond and waterfall. It was great to drift off to sleep to the sound of crashing water! When we arrived at 14:45, we noted that reception was closed from 12:00 - 15:00. This was not a problem for us, even though... More

The hotel is in a stunning and quiet location but the staff were not particularly helpful. We booked a superior room as we read that the standard were very small and that there was no shower in the bathroom. Our friends who were travelling with us booked a standard room some Euros 40 cheaper than our per night. On arrival... More

We spent a long weekend at the hotel at the beginning of July. There was an initial confusion over which suite we had booked, but it was sorted out very quickly. The rooms were much cleaner than previous years and arriving at the hotel still provokes the same reaction of a large smile appearing on our faces. The hotel managers... More

A gorgeous location at the end of a lovely country road -- easy walk to some lovely cascades, and one right outside the hotel. It seemed as if the cleaning crew had taken a good deal of time off -- both inside and out. The rooms were quite dated and could use new mattresses and pillows. Bath had no shower... More

A beautiful period hotel in a stunning location which was situated a mere 10 min walk from tranquil cascades, a true gem. But, the service was......... abysmal. Delivered by arrogant rude staff which at best were ambivalent in their service. They lacked pride in providing anything resembling service. Eating at the Hotel's Micheline restaurant was completely spoilt by laissez, faire... More
