We stayed at the Hotel Regina in Le Puy in September 2005. As far as we know, there are not many hotels in Le Puy worth considering and so we felt fortunate in finding Hotel Regina. It is centrally-located and therefore convenient to the city’s major sites. It is on the main street but if you are patient you can find an overnight parking place. There is also limited free parking at the side of the hotel, but there seems to be little or no turnover in the spaces. During the day, you have to buy a parking ticket for your dashboard and there is a time limit (we believe it was the standard two hours).
The Hotel Regina is a “plain jane” hotel but nonetheless it is comfortable, clean, and the staff is most accommodating. We arrived at about 10 pm after a long drive and were hungry. Although the dining room had closed, the front desk arranged to have the one remaining waiter make up cold plates for us, which included an interesting and tasteful selection – fresh figs, cheeses, pate, cold vegetables, etc. The waiter also brought us a marvelous local white wine.
Our room was medium sized with a good queen bed. The colors were over the top – green and peach-colored walls, multi-color fabrics. Furnishings were adequate and the place was well-maintained. The bathroom was relatively large and the plumbing worked well. There was no internet access.
We had another dinner in the hotel dining room, and ate breakfast there, and can recommend the restaurant as having attractive offerings at reasonable prices in a nice environment. The restaurant was crowded with animated and lively guests, and it appears to be a major gathering place for local residents.
Our fondest memories of this hotel are of the politeness and helpfulness of the staff, who also spoke English relatively well.
