We drove on to Colmar - a town I have visited several times and enjoy - where we stayed at the four star Le Marechal which is in the area known as petite Venice. The receptionist was first class when we walked into this clearly upmarket establishment. It is an old building which backs onto the river and is one of those places that is truly picturesque. Considering the age of the building they have done well to manage to squeeze in rooms and a lift that works. We had two small doubles which were perfectly adequate as singles and I suppose OK as doubles if you are small, or very friendly. That night we dined in their gastronomic restaurant called A l’Echevin: it provided slightly pretentious service: the food was correct as one would expect in such an establishment: but I would have liked to see more flair and inventiveness.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Tranquility of a village at the water’s edge, right in the centre of town. Old, half-timbered houses, balconies heaped with flowers, weeping willows which dip their boughs into the Lauch waters… this is the heart of Colmar, the old quarter which is so picturesque that it has been called “Little Venice”. Constructed in 1565 on the fortified walls which encircle the old town (11th century), the Hostellerie « Le Maréchal » welcomes you to the center of this enchanting spot. Everything about the place has charm, tranquility, elegance and courtesy. Why not try a four poster bed from the yesterdays ? The owners, Family BOMO, will personally ensure your comfort. The 30 Rooms and suites are nostalgic, furnished with good brocades and antiques, but with 21st century conveniences : TV LCD HD (international chanels), WIFI, Minibar, Phone, Individual Air Conditioning, WC, Safe, Hair Dryer, all equiped with bath (some with whirpool bathroom) and shower (some with massage shower). ... more less
