If you fancy a few days in Clermont Ferrand (and I can't imagine why anyone would want to do this) then stay at the Best Western. Not because it's central, because it's miles from anywhere, as far as I can tell. Not because the breakfasts are amazing either, because they're not, they're pretty average. Not for the use of the amazing wifi connection, as it's a bit flaky. Stay there for two reasons. Firstly, because the rooms are great. I've stayed in hotels of this rating all over Europe and this one wins hands down. The shower is a particular treat, as it as it doesn't follow the hotel traditions of being impossible to set it to the required temperature or spraying the entire bathroom with water as soon as you turn it on. I'm guessing it's new or refurbished, but either way it's really very pleasant to be in. Not just the shower, I mean the room too. The second reason to stay here is the view. Being, as it is, in the middle of nowhere, it's surrounded by green. Fields and trees kind of green that is, not green walls. The view is beautiful, and the dinky goldfish pond outside the restaurant is a nice touch too.
