The hotel is literally a one minute walk from the Avenue de Champagne and if that's not why you're in Epernay then I don't know what you're doing visiting! Parking on the street requires topping up the meter but a little under 5 Euros got me parking from 9am to 3:00pm - not a huge hardship to make sure I came back (or left) by then but if you are staying longer then there is a car park 50m walk away. The receptionist could not have been nicer to us - I don't speak French but at least I give it a go ......she put me out of my misery by speaking impeccable English and once explaining everything I needed to know about the hotel, she went on to give us recommendations for dinner that were walking distance. After looking these up on the complimentary Wi-Fi we made a choice and she helpfully phoned through a reservation for us. The room was beautiful and the shower was enormous. Yes, the floorboards creak - if you can't put up with the "character" of an old house, go book into a Holiday inn - you don't belong here!
We opted not to have breakfast here so have no comment on this. The only, single negative comment that I have about this hotel is that the coffee in the room is charged for - yes, it's a Nespresso machine, but I really think that a cup of coffee could be thrown in for free .........
Lastly, I have to recommend a trip downstairs to the Champagne bar that is under the hotel - we had a great time exploring unusual champagnes from the local area that you can buy by the glass - a different 9 growers are showcased each week and it's a very reasonable way to experience something different. Hat's off to Damian for being a great host for a couple of hours and closing much later than he should have :-)
