We stayed at this inn for two nights during a seven-day biking trip through the Burgundy region. We were only planning to stay one night, but had to return for a second night when an unforeseen storm and mountainous terrain forced us to cancel our trek to Autun. The owner was very gracious about our return when we arrived back at the hotel in a very wet and disheveled condition. She washed our cycling clothes, showed us where we could make ourselved some tea, and helped us cancel the hotel reservation we had made for that night in Autun.
It was the best accomation during our trip and we highly recommend it. The owner was kind, warm and helpful. She is also fluent in English (they also have some English magazine subscriptions for guests). The two cats and dog are very friendly and one of the cats was happy to oblige us and hang out in our room!
The room and bathroom were quite large compared to the average French hotel. A shower curtain would have been nice, but the heated towel rack made up for it. Everything was very clean and the decor very original and comfortable.
The breakfast was very nice, and although somewhat expensive (approx. 12 euros) it was comparable in price to the breakfasts in all of the other hotels along our stay. The overall price of the room was a slight bit higher than similar hotels in Burgundy, but it was worth it....(and it was cheaper than similar accomodation in Canada). Hotel is within walking short distance to downtown shops and amenities. There is secure parking for bicycles in a clean locked shed. Note that the hotel check-in is closed for a couple of hours each afternoon.
