A nice big room, nice towels in the bathroom. Very close to the road and the traffic was rather noisy but the view out onto the street and bridge was nice. Also an advantage on this side of the hotel was the sunlight into the room. Breakfast was not so fresh.

We only spent one night in Hotel de France in gorgeous Ornons and would have liked to stay longer. We were travelling as two couples and were lucky enough to have two newly renovated spacious rooms which were tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Staff were friendly, welcoming and the meal offering local produce was great as was the breakfast. This... More

We stayed here for 4 nights last month whilst we explored a new, to us, area of France. Although our room was a little tired it was comfortable and the food was excellent, we were pleasantly surprised that the menu continued to offer us interesting and varied choices over the four days. We were very pleased that we had opted... More

English speaking and welcoming family hotel perfectly located in Ornans, the Venice of France, on the enchanting River Loue, with easy access of all things Franche-Comte, Jura, Burgandy and Beaune, and Switzerland. Exquisite food, well priced, French charm at its best, and nothing is too much trouble especially if wanting assistance with guided fishing, walking, sight-seeing, wine buying, famous Gustave...

Good location in centre of town, rooms could be modernised, being close to the river and with trout on the menu, I imagine the odour of fish is not uncommon as we found with a few rooms above the kitchens, breakfast was ok. Overall for the price good service and good food in restaurant.

I have not awaited much to be honest. I know that this corner of France is not really spectacular as far as the quality of hotels and restaurants is concerned. And still, with Hotel de France I was absolutely satisfied. I will go back. It was cosy, the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice at a reasonable... More

Forty years ago I ate in the restaurant at this hotel with my parents on our way to the Italian lakes. It seemed fitting to return to the establishment to both stay and eat when my wife and I undertook the same trip this year. The business is now owned by the sons of the couple who owned it when...

Dined here in preference to a 2nd evening in the restaurant in our hotel (no complaints just simply fancied a change). The Hotel de France proved to have a good restaurant with a very pleasant atmosphere. Superb trout soufflé and rabbit terrine starters followed by cod plus lamb brochettes main courses were followed by comfortably sized plates of local cheeses.... More

I generally find that Logis de France establishments are good and this is probably at the top end of these for value.Our room was large ,clean and adequately furnished with a large bathroom. The restaurant was very busy and, like the hotel, excellent value.The situation is central, overlooking the river
