This was a return visit to possibly one of the nicest places I have stayed over many trips to France; it's like putting on a favourite jumper, as when, say, gardening of just lolling about - more like going to a friend's house than to an hotel.
I digress; it's decorated somewhat eclectically, with different 'treasures' (or knick-knacks) in the various rooms. (I've often wondered what constitutes bric-a-bric. Visit Le Clos to find out!) Yes, some bits are looking a little tired but it's all part of the charm and its individuality.
As others have mentioned, the hotel is ideally located for the Avenue de la Champagne, and it's a short walk into town. Conversely, it seems a lot further walking back afterwards, but I can think of a couple of good reasons for that.
We were on the top floor, in the eaves, which gives a view on one side of the valley across the Marne, but there's no lift, so best travel light.
Breakfast was rather good, mostly home-made with freshly squeezed fruit juices, marvellous croissants and confitures. At €15, I thought it a little pricey but there is lots of choice, including cereals, cold meats, cheeses, yoghurt etc., and they'll also conjure up boiled/scrambled eggs.
The owner, and her staff, are delightful and were very helpful throughout our stay.
The gardens are lovely and a peaceful haven, with sufficient secure parking.
