We were amazed when we first saw this hotel - we couldn't believe how preserved it's building was- it was like being transported back in time with old beams, a cobbled courtyard, and the most amazing decor. We felt we had struck gold with this one!!! And we were not disappointed the service was supurb a special mention for Anna... More

Back in The Past, few centuries before. Amazing. It's look like It was at The very Beginning. You feel like be in a movie or Travel in The past. The Food unfortunately is not that So good. You have a pork cook in The fire place, The same recipe since 1975. But not enough Tasty. But It's a Nice expérience... More

The last night of our two week holiday was spent here and what a way to crown two wonderful weeks. Our room R was just oozing with character, with plenty of room and a very comfortable bed. Luckily we had reserved a table in the restaurant where we enjoyed a wonderful meal and were warmed by the open fire over... More

Lovely interesting building, easy parking, staff ok, brown bathroom suite from the er 1970's, but I thought the food would be better or in the case of the local sausage actually edible. I could not recommend the brasserie at the hotel and my colleague would not stay there again based on the food. Maybe the main restaurant is better but... More

A mix up with breakfast but it got sorted, cereals, croissants,bread, cheese and jam. €11 each. We ate in the restaurant and food was very... More

My friend and I booked two single rooms in this charming hotel for two days in June. The welcome was immediate by the owners, our rooms clean and spacious, and the food excellent and interesting. The old bricks and beams have tremendous atmosphere and we used it as a base to tour First World War Museums and sites. Good access... More

Courteous and thoughtful owners, spotless and tasteful bedroom, helpful staff and excellent food and wine - what more could one ask for. The staff spoke excellent English but allowed the conversation to flow in French where the customer felt comfortable. The suckling pig, one of the restaurant specialities, was very good and well-priced. The breakfast could have been wider in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Comfortably established after four hundred years of existence.All spruced up, it offers its Henry IV style, interpreted with regional inspiration in its proportions, harmoniously decorated in total respect for the region and its history.When Louis XIV made his “joyful return” to Valenciennes in August 1680, the Auberge was called “A la Ville de Troyes”. A souvenir of the great fairs of Champagne, with the travellers, salesmen and drapers stopping in our town to rest and restore their strength.in the hearth, there would be capons and haunches of meat roasting with a stew bubbling in fat jugs, swaying with the bawdy songs which barely covered the sounds of horses and their hooves on the round paving stones in the courtyard.The inn had a great reputation; Jacques Fontaine managed the establishment until 1701 and its successors’ were still roasting in the fireplace in 1789. ... more   less
