We spent two nights at Maison Decoret in November.
As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by the staff of the hotel, who helped us with our luggage took us up to our room, explained everything to us. The room, one of five themed by colour, was furnished in a comfortable, modern style. It had a small terrace overlooking the roof garden, with table and chairs for coffee or a drink. One of my complaints of some (even luxury) hotels, is that there is often a small, underpowered hairdryer attached to the wall, which you have to keep your finger on all the time to make it work ! This was not the case with Maison Decoret where there was a proper, full-sized, high-powered hair-dryer. Bliss . . .
So, we were more than pleased with the welcome and the room.
We ate on both evenings in the restaurant, which was a great experience (see separate review). A nice touch when we went up to our room was to be met by a member of staff offering us a small liqueur to take to our room with us. Breakfast is served in a room simply but beautifully decorated with some original features of the building preserved. Breakfast comprised fresh viennoiserie, a lovely fresh fruit sald, yoghurts, home made jams and a great-tasting cake, which, as we couldn't manage it, was wrapped for us to take to our room to enjoy later in the day.
Having asked for some information about the town of Vichy at breakfast, as we came to go out it was apparent that a member of staff had made the trip to the local tourist office to obtain some information for us.
Madame Decoret, the owner of the hotel, was charming throughout our stay and we had an opportunity to speak with the chef - Monsieur Decoret - who made time to talk with us about the restaurant.
Overall, this is a charming hotel where you feel looked after from the moment you arrive.
We hope to return.
