We stayed one night on our way home from the south of France.
The room (a studio) was spacious, with a relatively large bed. The bathroom was excellent: the shower was absolutely fantastic. The studio also contained a small and basic kitchenette. Room also had a flatscreen TV. Location is fabulous too, you are quite close to Epernay and while you make your way up to Reims you pass the Veuve Clicquot and Moet vineyards.
We had reserved a spot for dinner as well. At first the price struck me as relatively high, but it became clear early on that dinner was comprised of an amuse, starter, main course, cheese plate and dessert. It was also accompanied by lots and lots of really, really good (Guy Charbaut!) champagne - the Cuvee Reserve, rose and Millesime 2005. Excellent value for money. It was also a lively dinner with all the other guests and the hosts.
All in all I would say that this is good value for money. It also lends itself well for staying a bit longer and exploring the area. Would probably stay here again if I visited the Champagne area again.
