A very welcoming hotel in this attractive town with private car parking so your car is safe, lovely rooms and we had one of the upper rooms but did not think the small windows were a problem at all. We had a large ensuite bathroom which was beautifully appointed and the staff were excellent, well visit again.

I've stayed in several Best Western hotels in UK and they've been ok, but nothing special. This hotel was, however. We were driving from Calais to Lake Garda and chose Bourg for an overnight stop. The hotel is an imposing building, with a grand entrance and staircase, set on a quiet and leafy square in the middle of Bourg. We... More

Had to extend my stay from 1 to 5 nights for health reasons. The staff was very nice, could not have been more helpful. The room at the back was basic but quiet and clean. Parking in the hotel is limited, but outside is very easy except on market days when the whole square turns into a souk. Very good... More

Once we found the hotel (due to major roadworks in the town center and many diversions) it was as expected. Secure parking for the bikes but despite requesting twin beds one room had a large double, no twins available so the receptionist offered to put an additional bed in the same room. No problem. Good breakfast, restaurant looked OK but... More

This Hotel has the fairly unusual policy of pre-authorising your card on arrival for double the room cost, giving the minibar as an excuse, (even though in fact I did not have one in my room). They will then issue a closure ticket on departure, and charge you seperately for your bill. However in my case the 150 euro pre-auto... More

We had an impromptu stop here as our travel plans were delayed. This hotel is a lovely very French imposing building on the main town square. Inside there is a beautifully tiled floor. Room was very spacious, spotlessly clean with a decent shower (albeit over the bath) and a very comfortable big bed. Staff were polite and helpful - the... More

These week have we visited several 3 star hotel in France, surprisingly we have found very good ones even in rural ó isolated areas. Tha is why one can expect a better quality in this hotel situated in the core of the ancient town. Besides, when it belongs to a chain, it should fulfil certain standard. This was not the... More
