I looked at some earlier rewiews that are critical. I seriously doubt that they are honest. My guess is that the author (probably same person behind all) wants to hurt, for some unknown reason. What is said (in french) is simply NOT true!
I was part of a group preparing for a bike race. We made a short stop here, but found it was hard to leave. We had no time to stay over, but had a look at the the whole place and the rooms, since several of us want to come back here. Partly because Besse is a very pictoresque and quiet little medieval town, but also because we liked this hotel much.
We came off season and unannounced, but they still made us a very tasty dinner. and a good serving, even for eight big hungry guys. Some people seem to complain at price tags higher than McDonalds. Whatever you say, this is WAY better value for money, and cheaper than expected. The wine list is limited in length, but who cares, when what you get (recommended by the hotel owner) is VERY good and even fairly cheap. The owner knows the wine maker, who is an old guy that keeps making wine just because he loves to do that. That love you can taste.
The owners are a very charming couple who obviously put their heart and soul into this place and treat guests as very welcome individuals. Anyone not appreciating that, must be intolerably arrogant.
