The reviews on Trip Advisor rather put me off and I only stayed when the other hotels I had considered were full. The Logis de France guide gives the maximum of 3 chimneys and 3 cooking pans which was encouraging! In fact my welcome could not have been better as the receptionist changed my room to one on the ground floor with an excellent shower. My usual gripe with French showers is that no matter how good the shower they never provide a place to put your shampoo bottle and soap, this was no exception. The room was small but had all that was necessary. Week-end rate of 75 euro seemed reasonable and the heating kept the winter cold at bay. Breakfast (12 euro) had a large selection of cold meat, cheese, breads, and a chafing dish with scrambled egg and otherr items (which I did not investigate).
The restaurant was odd. It was very poorly lit which made reading the menu difficult. The staff of about 8 were eventually dealing with about 90 diners, and although they ran (yes, ran) from pillar to post they did not seem to have the time to provide any service! I had to ask for the wine list twice. My white wine was glugged into the glass and the waiter had disappeared before I had time to bat an eyelid, let alone try the wine! That said, they were all polite and as helpful as they could be at speed.
The meal was excellent: Terrine de Cerf à la Royale, Chutney d’Airelles (20 euro); La Veritable Sole XXL (800/900g) Meunière, Pommes Vapeur et Beurre Noisettes (38 euro); Soufflé Glacé à la Mirabelle (12 euro). My drinks were 54 euro which included a half bottle of Pouilly Fumé (25 euro), a glass of Côte de Toul (8 euro), and an old Mirabelle (10 euro).
The situation of the hotel, just south of Metz and close to the motorway is good. I would stay here another time were I in the area.
