I arrived in a snowstorm at 10.30 p.m. without a reservation. The Hotel Mercure is on one of the radial routes into the charming French town of B-en-B.

The reception staff humoured my Z level Freench and discreetly switched to English and were friendly and welcoming. There was a pleasant ambiance. And a getting a good meal that late was no problem.

The room was lovely, albeit the pretty view of a town snowscape would not be year-round. Warm and well organised, with a touch of Gallic flair in the decor.

Breakfast was memorably good, although not included in price agreed the night before.

A very short stay, but enough for a recommendation

We stayed for one night en-route to the Alps and found the hotel conveniently located to the auto-route. It is a business hotel and lacks a personal touch but is fit for purpose.

The room was located in a newer part of the hotel to rear of the hotel with a somewhat small and slow lift taking you to the upper floors, quicker to use the stairs (fire escape). The car park is free and secure at night.The room slept 4 with a double bed for us and a sofa bed for our 2 children. This saves quite a bit as we have had to book 2 rooms at other hotels in the past. The room appeared to be new or recently revamped and the quality of the bathroom was good. We all had a good sleep as were some distance from reception and the main road.

We had dinner in the hotel as it is a reasonable driving distance from the centre of town and after a full days driving we didn't feel like another journey in the car. Interestingly the menu enfant was good value with 3 courses and enough food to keep most adults happy. For the adults we had some savoury snacks and olives served while we waited for our main course, the food was of a good standard and was accompanied with bread. We had a glass of good wine each and some sparkling mineral water. By the time you add all of this up you have probably we spent between 80 and a 100 Euros. The breakfast was reasonable (kids go free) but the layout of the self service tables resulted in a bit of congestion during the morning peak. The service was friendly and efficient at both the restaurant and the front desk.

I would use this hotel again for a stop over.

Bourg en Bresse makes a good overnight stop either travelling to or from the Italian Alps and is on the main road in from the A40 autostrada and fairly close to the town centre. receptionist welcoming and very helpful. Room comfortable with everything you need for an overnight stop or a short stay. Buffet Breakfast with plenty of choice including cold meats, cheese, boiled eggs yoghurts and fruit, bread, croissants and conserves. There is a Casino supermarket and Carrefour within 3km both with cheap diesel and petrol (you can save about 20c per litre over autoroute filling station prices).

A mediocre hotel rescued by its restaurant. Tries to be a superior grade, but doesn’t achieve it. Room was small and dull, no fridge and a very odd toilet arrangement which made the “approach” awkward. On the plus side the bed was comfy and the air-con worked fine.
A busy business hotel seemingly geared more to provide for seminars and presentations than residential guests. We were given a ground floor room on the same level as reception; those rooms nearest reception could have suffered noise as there is no door separating the two areas.
The restaurant is very good and of such quality that it was the dining highlight of our holiday. Breakfast is poor value and not recommended.
Two disabled parking spaces near the door, but taken when we were there by those too idle to walk from the car park.
Had a couple of beers before dinner, a 25cl one and another half filled at our request. The following morning they insisted on charging for two 25cl beers, and would not budge, saying they charged by the glass not how much was in it. Left with the feeling that a little flexibility on the hotel’s part would have improved the experience. Difficult to recommend as a travelling stop, perhaps we were not the market they were after.

Ok, so it's a fairly anonymous chain hotel but, it has well appointed rooms and a very decent restaurant. It's not often you find tea / coffee making facilities in a French hotel or a mini bar which is stocked with complimentary bottles of cold water. The bathroom and shower was very smart.
The restaurant was large and busy but the service attentive and the food was of a good quality.
My stay, by myself en route from Provence to UK, was booked on a half board basis which meant the 2 course dinner, breakfast and bed was 116 euros. Value for money in a chain hotel a cut above the run of the mill!

This was a nice, clean, and comfortable hotel. The night we stayed, their only elevator broke down, which was a little inconvenient, but I'm sure wasn't their fault. The reason for the 5 stars is the great Chantecler restaurant. We came to Bourg en Bresse just to taste the Bresse chicken, and we were not disappointed. I ordered the traditional Bresse chicken (in a cream sauce), but my wife wanted to taste it more "natural" - just roasted. The latter wasn't on the menu, but the waiter was most accommodating, and the chef prepared it as a special. In spite of the special order, both came quickly, and both were the best chicken we ever had, And they're rightfully proud of their chicken. During the meal, the maitre d' came around with a freshly killed chicken to explain its heritage to all interested diners. I asked him to place it on an empty table so I could photograph it - the picture is now a great souvenir of a great dining experience.
