“Worst place we have ever stayed? Possibly”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

There is nothing to recommend this hotel apart that our room had a bed. Issues we had were many; from an unfriendly host to the shower being so small that it was impossible to wash in due to constricted arm movement and having only sub luke warm water. The full height clear glass windows in the ensuite bathroom had curtains for privacy that draped over the toilet seat. The corridors and public areas of the hotel smelled of kitchen grease which stopped us from having breakfast or meals in-house. In short, a good location spoiled by tiny, badly decorated and fitted rooms with an almost unusable bathroom. Oh, it is also very noisy from other guests clomping up and down stairs and walking about the rooms above. Avoid.

This is the type of hotel that you used to find everywhere in France. The room was large with a a big bathroom. Very clean and with everything we needed. Minuses - clearly struggles when full - no hot water in the morning (although loads when back from breakfast) and the breakfast room too small to cope with the number of people using it at the same time. There was also an irritating barking dog (from one of the room ?) that thankfully stopped when we wanted to sleep. So good enough for a night stop over en route to Calais. Despite being called La Cloche no bell ringing !

Cute French hotel. Beautiful, spacious room, close to railway station, and in the centre of town. Great breakfast. Take earplugs however, the paper thin walls are a let down. Did not have a good night sleep. Very clean.

I am a big fan of travel reviews and after reviewing on some hotels in the Champagne region, we decided on this hotel for the positive points. We stayed here for a night during our trip across France. It is a cute and well managed hotel. Our room was slightly small with a child's bed thrown in. However, the sheets were clean and crispy so it was not an issue. We had a long French window facing the street and the little green patch across. Whatever noise we got from opening our window added to the charm of a small lively town :-). Our bathroom was spacious and the bathtub and shower hose pretty new. But I could not understand why the wash basin was so high. I reckon they set it up with taller people in mind ;-). Initially, we only booked the room without breakfast. But we were tempted by the aroma of the freshly baked croissants in the morning which were fresh and delicious. Our son had several pieces and they gave him a complimentary breakfast. That was much appreciated. Check in and check out were smooth. I am happy with the overall experience for the price it is worth.

Stayed one night on way into Champagne, Eperany is a great area but this hotel is tired, dated and well overdue for improvement.

Pro's
- wifi
- location on roundabout close to town & 3 mins from train

Con's
- location on roundabout means in warm weather, you open the window but will be exposed to traffic noise day and night
- woke up twice during the night as well due to man in next room snoring (thin walls)
- tiny old bathroom, limescale heavy shower heads
- stairs, no lift or help with heavy suitcase (take note solo / less able travelers)
- breakfast limited to breads, cereal and yoghurt (no ham, cheese, croissants, etc) for 7.50 or have a coffee only for 2.80
- tired, dated and run down rooms so hard to tell if clean?
- no iron available so no ironing shirts, dresses, clothes
- professional website pics nothing like what I saw for real

At 54 eu for a double, it may be cheap but it's not value for your money.

Room Tip: In warm weather, if you get a room to the front & open the window, you'll get traffic and re...

Perfect location! In the middle of town right next to a beautiful church which we could look out the window to from our bed! The room was reasonable size as was the bathroom, and all very clean. The only down side was the paper thin walls. Nevertheless, because of location and price if I come back to Epernay, which I hope I will, I will come back here.

Stayed for one night here on our way down to the Med. Basic hotel but in a very good location in Epernay and next door to an excellent Italian/French restaurant. Great value for money if you are looking for a stopover with a reasonably sized room.
