We stayed at this hotel in early September, 2011. The hotel is situated in Bas-Riceys in the middle of Champagne producing region. It has an air of quality and solidness. Parking was available in the hotel court yard for a fee of Euro 10 per day, however we parked in front of the hotel next to the church for free.
The area is very quiet with a lot of solid houses but with little sign of life. Champagne houses are dotted all around the area. For a little more excitement and choice the town of Troyes is situated to the north and easily accessible via local roads. There is also a good factory outlet to the north of Troyes.
We had a double reserve and a double comfort room which had a difference in size and price. The double reserve room in which my wife and I stayed was large and clean with a writing desk, bed side lamps, TV, telephone and free Wi-Fi connection. There was no safe, minibar or slippers and had only a few coat hangers. Linen was clean.
There was a WC to one side of the room with no hand wash basin or toilet hose or hooks to hang clothes on and a bathroom on the other side with a large semi-circular bath tub and a hand wash basin. Not having the WC in the bathroom was not very convenient. Bathroom was large and clean with a hairdryer and magnifying mirror. Towels were clean. However, supply of shampoo and shower gel was totally inadequate as only two sachets of 10 ml each were provided per day.
There was a restaurant in the renovated cave below. Food was very good but slightly on the expensive side. Breakfast cost Euro 10 per person per day and was very basic. Not even a boiled egg.
Staff/owners were polite but very busy doing most of the work themselves and at times seemed a bit distanced and overworked.
