“Amazing breakfast”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

We stayed onte night on a "sejour gastronomique" at The Soldier located on the outskirts of a city obviuosly built for military purposes. The location of the hotel was close to the main road entering the inner parts of the town. We were not disturbed by the traffic.
The room was charming and very neat, bathroom spacious and clean.
The "sejour" consisted of a 5 course dinner with vine, champagne and coffe; and a "small" breakfast.
First we had three small pieces to the champagne. Then we had a golden foie gras. The foie gras vas decorated with flakes of gold and served with a Alsacien Pinot gris grand cru - a perfect match. The fish was turbot with a wonderful sauce. To the fish we had a well selected Pouilly-Fussé, loaded with oka and vanilla. In my opinion the fish would have benefitted from 20 secs less time in the oven. Then we had filét of veal and sweetbread, a rösti with truffles to this. The vine was a fullbodied claret, The dessert was perfect to.
Afterwards we sat down and had coffe and a digestif from the wide choice of rhum, cognacs, armangacs ans so on. Georges Schmitt came and had a little talk with us.
If dinner was perfect the breakfast was even better. Scrambled eggs with truffles, foie gras, bread, coffe, croissants, marmelade...

“Good hotel with some of the best food”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

On our way to the Art fair in Basel we stopped at this hotel basically to have a bite to eat and to have a night over.

But this hotel offers a lot more.

The service is good and friendly (not always obvious in France). The rooms are clean, a bit dated but the idea of putting a showercompartment in the middle of an older room (I suppose late 18th, early 19th century) actually works. well done.

But by far the reason to come back to this place is the restaurant. Only one Michelin star is not enough for the quality of food you get. Everything is well prepared, presented and served with joy.

And then after an exquisit dinner and some drinks in the bar, a good nights rest you get the same treat at breakfast. Personally served by the owner/chef we were spoiled with the best truffle eggs we ever ate, there was fresh picked local fruit on the table, homemade gooseliver etc... etc....

When in the area, make a detour. You'll love it.

“hotel very cosy and chic, food divine, great stopover”
Reviewed September 2, 2010

we just spent an evening, night and morning in this beautiful hotel on our way from Gstaad to London. we absolutly loved the dinner : we arrived quite late yet were welcomed by the very friendly chef. Best fois gras ever. Our children had their own gourmet menus permitting them to sample divine grownup food in kids portions. we loved our suite and slept very well. the breakfast was out of this world with fresh truffles and scrambled eggs. Hard to leave but we were envigorated by such a restauring sojourn. I highly recommand it despite previous very undesevered severe critics
