As Amou is a very small town, there are limitations in your choice of places to stay, but you shouldn't be disappointed here.
Staff are friendly and helpful, but as per a lot of places in this area of France, the ability to speak at least some French is a distinct advantage! The hotel itself is well situated and easy to find, with plenty of parking available close by. Rooms are large enough, clean and well maintained - and excellent value for money at less than 70 Euros per night. A word of advice if you plan to arrive between 3 and 6 pm - discuss how you are going to get your key, as no-one is around at this time (I had a local contact with access to the hotel and the key had been left out for us). Although meals are not served until 07.30/19.30, I needed an early breakfast and the owners were quite willing to accommodate. The hotel was quite busy during my stay, but there were no problems at all with noise, so sleep quality is very good (unless you indulge a bit too much in all the good food and wine!).
The eating terrace is beautiful, as is the food; judging by how busy the restaurant got, it must be the place to eat around here! Try the local delicacies such as foie gras, confit gizzard and various cuts of duck, and you won't be disappointed, though you will certainly pay for them... Also, if you have a long day ahead, plan for a meal after breakfast, as the petit dejeuner is very petit - a croissant, a small bit of French bread and an orange juice won't keep you fuelled all morning!
All in all, if you are in the area, I would recommend staying here.
