Coming out of hot Clermont Ferrand into the cooler 'mountain' air was a great boon and the views of the city from this hotel are an added bonus. This is very much a stopover place as it does not have much in the way of facilities (a spartan kiddies playground out back). The advantage though is that you are five minutes from the Puy de Dome train and can make a head start on everyone else in the morning. It was very French! No attempt at any stage to engage in the Anglo-Saxon tongue. Fair enough, we're in France, but then this is a service industry! If your French is poor/non-existant, this might prove a struggle. Room fine and functional, with a view. Evening meal very respectable and friendly waiters. Breakfast something of a bun-fight, but we probably arrived at the peak time. Worth a stop and surely better than a steaming city centre on the plain below.
