“Best Best Western”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

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.

Found it on Trip Advisor and thought we would try it for ourselves. Very comfortable and quiet. Perfect as right next to the A75 motorway. Newly renovated rooms- good night sleep. Great food at night - only negative, after such good food at night disappointing breakfast- advice on this one- get off early and find a service station.

Stayed her for 2 nights during a business trip. Arrived on a Sunday evening and unfortunately could not get any food anymore. That's why I gave a bit less in service. Otherwise rooms where great and clean, and alo the breakfast and dinner I had where well catered for. A great tetras with a magnificent view on the Gergovie plateau, where Vercintorix concquered Julius Cesar ... Guess that counts as a view ...

We did have trouble locating the hotel as in the Best Western website had the completely wrong location on the map however we found it on Google maps prior to travelling so be careful there. The hotel itself is in a good location in that we wanted somewhere quiet and away from a town centre as it was an overnighter. There is a lovely outside terrace with a fountain trickling away which gives a sense of tranquility. The room was lovely and the bathroom was amazing with a wonderful walk in shower. Its clearly a very new hotel, the only downside was it was extremely hot when we stayed probably around 32oc and the air conditioning just didnt seem to get the room cool enough. The food in the restaurant for dinner was lovely and quite unexpected, they served a lovely set dinner with a buffet starter which was delightful. I will agree with another review regarding breakfast, very poor for the money. a bit of ham and cheese, bread and some tiny pastries, i also took an egg thinking it had been cooked and it was raw! on the whole though a lovely hotel though and would definitely stay again if I was in the area and needed a bed for the night.

Very comfortable room- not very large but well designed to maximise available space, modern without being too trendy. Wonderfully comfortable mattresses, plus for this class of hotel an exceptionally spacious bathroom. Also very nice free 'smellies' in the bathroom (so nice I took the little bottles and leftover soap away with me!). Air conditioning worked well, and there was a pleasant tiny terrace outside (but you have to take the room chairs out if you want to sit outside).
Easy to get to. When coming from the North it's just off the slipway from the motorway, with an almost immediate turning to left. High up on the hill with pleasant if unspectacular views. Good secure parking. But there isn't much else in the immediate vicinity. Landscaping rather newish and a bit unkempt in parts - could do with some weeding and trimming of the bushes. But this didn't bother us too much because we were there for just one night and we liked the comfort of the room and the easy atmosphere of the hotel. It was a very nice stay.

This would have been a top notch overnighter if only the breakfast had been worth anything like the 11 Euros each shelled out (no discount for kids). How do you make a total botch of a continental breakfast?
Otherwise this is a great place, lovely outdoor terrace, balconies in every room, spacious airy rooms, spotless and easy to reach from the autoroute. To top it all the room didn't cost a great deal more than the breakfast!!
Clermont Ferrand is a lot nicer place than often given credit, centre ville is an easy ten minute drive from the Gergovie.
