“Pleasant Hotel, Excellent Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2010

An attractive commercial hotel on the river Yonne. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpful, however we were disappointed as the lack of internet availability unless you had your own computer. The dining room was upscale, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. The breakfast, which is not included in the room price, was extensive.

Many visitors to Joigny will be there because of the Locoboat canal boat hire base. A very short walk from the marina (virtually next door) is the Hotel Restaurant le Rive Gauche. We ate there at the end of 3 weeks in France (2 weeks Paris, 1 week on the Burgandy Canal). The meal we had at the Rive Gauche was the best we had in France and at 30 Euros for 3 courses was excellent value for money.

They can offer an english version of the menu which we recommend because I would not have chosen the excellent fish dish I had as a main course from the french menu. The staff also speak english so if your french is limited then no problem.

The restaurant is very popular and we recommend walking down during the afternoon and making a reservation. We had dinner there but the lunch menu looks like extremely good value.

I was a little hesitant on the hotels in the small towns outside of Paris, but was pleasantly surprised with both the town and the hotel. The hotel sits on the Yonn River, which separates the town into two halves. The location creates a great view of the older part of the town across the river. They own the parkland, which sits directly next to the hotel. The hotel itself is well maintained and has a great restaurant. All the food is delicious at the hotel, especially the desserts. And, the hotel is extremely dog friendly

The one indifference to me was that my room did not have a shower, only a bath.

The only downside to the hotel is there is no laundry and the breakfast plates are not the cleaniest (like it came out of the dishwasher and there were still food particules stuck on the dishes).

If you want a relaxing time, this is the hotel and town for you.

By the way, the hotel is big with tour groups and so if are booking a tour through the town, you will probably stay here.
