“A Great Family-Run Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Nathalie and Florent are the friendly, genial hosts who run this little gem of a hotel. One always feels welcome here - they even serve their own homemade yoghurts and jams for the guests' breakfast whenever a new batch is ready. Florent also loves having soft jazz music in the background, which makes the ambience very homely and peaceful. The rooms are clean and warm - and the location is perfect, being in the heart of Murol itself.

Nathalie tells me that this hotel is their dream and they bought it over just over a year ago, having worked in the hotel business for over 10 years previously. So they know how to treat guests well and we were very thankful that we picked this hotel.

Highly recommended, especially for visitors to the region. There is a free car park as well.

We loved this local hotel and Murol. The hotel has a free car park and is right in the heart of the town from which we could walk everywhere, even up to the castle. The room was quite spacious, very clean and had good heating and blankets. The bathroom had a good shower as well. Our proprietors are a young couple who did everything to make our stay comfortable. The continental breakfast that we took each day was quite complete as well. Murol is one of the most interesting places that we have ever visited - Don't miss the Musee des Peintres de l'Ecole de Murol!

We stayed here for two nights for my birthday whilst touring around the beautiful Auvergne region. This good value hotel is charming with pretty rooms which are comfortable and very clean. The young couple who have recently taken over this hotel are very welcoming hosts. The town of Murol itself is old and interesting to walk around. There is a very good selection of restaurants in walking distance, and also some nice shops. A quieter place to stay than nearby Chambon-sur-Lac.

We are just back from a road trip through France and Murol was one of the places we visited. We stayed a few days at Hotel Les Volcans and we were immediately welcomed by the owners. It made us feel comfortable, to be received by such nice smiles and friendliness, especially after a long drive.

The hotel is very simple and cosy, and definitely clean. We liked the homely and countryside feeling in the hotel. The owners, quite a young couple, are very nice and very helpful. They both speak very well English, their kids are lovely and liked to interact with us as well.

There was no internet connection in the room but there was connection downstairs in the shared living room.

We paid € 7,50 for the daily breakfast, which was for a typical French breakfast (croissant, butter, cheese, jam, coffee (with hot milk if you'd like), etc.). The breakfast is optional.

The location is perfect - at night it is nice and quiet. It is not far from anything. The owners are more than happy to help you with the sight seeing activities in and around Murol, they are absolutely lovely and warm people.

We would love to stay at Les Volcans again and we can definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. It is suitable for families (with kids), for couples, for singles, etc.

Also if you'd like to book a room with them, it is best to contact them directly rather than via a booking website.

Room Tip: We think that all rooms will be equally quiet. There are no elevators, but the owner of the hotel w...

Traveling from Paris to Provence, we broke up our drive with a stopover at Hotel les Volcans. The drive was lovely; the Auverne region is a gorgeous mountainous area with a beautiful vista at every turn. Arriving at Hotel les Volcans, we were a bit surprised to find it up against a main road, but it was indeed a quiet night's sleep that we enjoyed. No a.c., but the weather was cool in early May. We enjoyed Anne Mary's lovely garden with a cold beer upon check-in. She even offered us a choice of rooms as she wasn't booked up. Loved the deep-set windows. When a storm blew in, we were able to enjoy the breezes due to the deep roof overhang as well. Anne Mary proved herself a most courteous hostess when I left a necklace and earrings, contacting me by email and forwarding my "jewels" on to our gite in Provence.

We stayed two nights to do some walking in the Vallée de Chaudefour. It's a good base, right in the village, so you can walk out to restaurants and shops.

The couple who run it were very welcoming and helpful with advice about walking routes. The room was fine and the breakfast was very good, including a selection of local jams and cheese.

This delightful hotel was a real discovery. Because it was so relatively inexpensive, we didn't have high expectations, so imagine our surprise when we pulled into the the flower -filled grounds and beheld a charming and obviously much-loved hotel. M. and Mme. les patrons were very welcoming and friendly. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a brand new bathroom. Murol nestles in a deep valley and all the lanes are narrow and the hotel plots necessarily small: we were initally concerned that the traffic noise would disturb us but Madame was quite right when she said that all would become tranquil once the weekend visitors had returned to Clermont. There is ample parking and a pretty little garden in which we sat out in the sunshine. We were visited by a very sweet Collie dog who had lost his master and the children helped madame to comfort him until he could be collected. All this added to the charm and happy memories. Nearby are some super restaurants and there is plenty of choice. As well as the castle of Murol (on Sundays, alas, only a garrulous guided tour rather than any mediaeval jousting) Mme recommended the lac de Chambon which the family loved. Lots to do, especially for children. Breakfast the next day was generous and made even more delicious by madame's home made plum jam. I would be very happy to recommend this lovely hotel and we are very keen to go back as soon as we can.
