Pont-de-Vaux is a busy but pleasant little town with its leafy canal and marina.
The hotel is clean, staff friendly, and my room very good value overall, in particular considering the hotel's location: i.e.conveniently close to the busy Paris-Lyon route, but sufficiently distant from it as well.
Good meal also, especially the "little bits": i.e. the Mise-en-Bouche, the sorbet Vigneron, the Pre-Dessert, all very nice. Although I think the hotel part of Le Raisin is bettter quality for price than the restaurant.
