“For want of something better to stay......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2011

For want of something better to stay during winter in the area, the Coq d'Or is a good place, although a bit overpriced.
The guesthouse has only 9 rooms, spacious and nicely decorated, but with basic furnishings. Breakfast (not included in the room rate) was good and is served in the restaurant below, as well as the dinner. The cuisine is of a good value for money.
There is not a real reception, since all operations are made at the restaurant's cash desk.
Being welcomed by a closed door and calling for the owner on the phone seems to be a trademark (read comments of other guests), but for t he rest was a nice stay.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2010

We arrived at 3.30pm on Sunday to be told the bar was closing in 30 minutes and the restaurant was shut on Sunday and Monday evenings. The owner advised that there was a small restaurant nearby which was open on a Sunday night, this turned out not to be the case. As the bar was about to close and we had been travelling for a few hours, we quickly ordered a beer, be warned, the beers cost 6 euros each.
The only other bar in the village shut at 8pm and it´s restaurant didn´t do food on a Sunday. The only place we could find to eat was a sandwich shop. My wife does not recommend the kebab frites sandwich. In the morning there was no hot water for the shower, we told the owner and he came and told us he had fixed it (when we were sitting in our car with the engine running). We had been led to expect this place would be ´superb´, it was deeply disappointing to say the very least. The photos on the website were clearly taken during a village festival and do not reflect the reality. The village has a nice square but it really is a ghost town on a Sunday.
The room would have been very nice if there had been any hot water but the carpet in the hall outside our room was utterly filthy. Not a good experience. There was no offer of any refund from the owner.

although we werent staying at this hotel (the rooms look fabulous and the hotel is in a perfect location overlooking town square and castle)we have eaten here a number of times. The food is delicious, the owners charming, the decor and ambiance stylish and welcoming.The waiters are delightful and the kitchen knows what it is doing. we have been coming here for the past three years and it just seems to get better and better. recommend you try it.
