“Great building, great location, let down by lack of investment.”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

A group of four of stayed here during a gourmet motorcycle tour.

The hotel accommodation is very tired, the rooms very small and the bathroom poor - a leaking sink and some crazy pre-formed plastic bath that does not fit any known human shape. Maybe there are better rooms in this lovely old building but all three of ours were the same.

We had pre-booked one of their gourmet meals for dinner and overall it was good. However sadly the meat course for two of us was a huge problem. The presentation was terrible, the meat was tough and un-cooked (I don't mean underdone on purpose), even the Maitre D agreed. He took the plates away, showed them to the Hotel Manager (his insistent idea not ours) and subsequently they would not stop offering us things until we agreed they would not charge us for our one bottle of wine.

Although they staff started out quite snooty in a French way, they ended up pretty human in a good way. Gladly we ended the evening friends!

After dinner we took a short walk around the fabulous church in the town square of Autun. It is a very short stroll from the hotel. This was a very pleasant end to the day.

The cost if the hotel was very reasonable at 189 Euro for two in a double room including dinner, bed & breakfast.

Although this review sounds a little bad, we enjoyed our stay and would give it another chance if we are in the area again.

“Fantastic value”
Reviewed June 2, 2010

Friendly staff, excellent wine choices (if, like me, you don't anything about wine), and excellent food at unbeatable prices. We ate there twice and both times had excellent service and food.

historic setting in the lovely medieval city of Autun (once practically ruling the Roman Empire!), fantastic view, great meal in the michelin-tipped classic stop on your way to a lavish wedding
