Reviewed 22 October 2012

The hotel is set in open country side just 8 kilometres south of Avallon. Rooms are set out at ground level and you can park your car outside the room. The french window in the room opens out onto the lawns. Good large room, exremely comfortable. The restaurant was excellent.

Visited this hotel for a wedding in August and stayed 3 nights.

Staff was very nice and price didn't include breakfast but we had dinner and it was very good.
The bad side of this hotel are the rooms... they look old, but they are very spacious.
Established on a big garden with lots of air and trees. Nice place for a short visit!

We stopped here on our way back to Caen from the Alps - we had seen it on the way south so booked a one night stop over on the way back. It is ideally suited for the purpose being only a few minutes off the A6, but far enough away to be quiet. The swimming pool was very welcome. The tennis courts do come with a health warning as the surface is very uneven, but for our poor level of play it made for an enjoyable diversion before dinner.
The dining room is really nicely furnished (in contrast to our rooms, which were in need of a makeover) and the servie was attentive but not too much. We found the food excellent - the €25 and €34 fixed menus had some great dishes on them - good starters, including the inevitable Burgundy snails (which were delicious) then the main courses: stuffed saddle of rabbit was sensational; tuna loin, excellent; lamb fillet, also excellent. Extensive chesse board and good puddings.
The only thing that let the place down was the quality of our rooms, where the decor was distintly tired. But the beds were comfortable and there was a good breakfast the following morning so overall, we would recommend it for a one night stay, but I am not sure I would want to stay much longer.

Room Tip: Try for rooms in the main building, or the second row of bungalows, further from the road.

Contrary to other trip advisor reviewers, my family and I preferred the hotel to the restaurant. Nothing luxurious but fine bed, enough towels and pillows provided and nice little swimming pool (water a bit cold). Definitely very reasonable value for money. Very friendly staff as well. We were less convinced by the restaurant for three reasons. First, the service was really quite slow. Second, while servings are definitely on the generous side, the food could be a bit more refined. Finally, I was not excited by the selection of Burgundy wines despite being in the region. Now, let's not exagerate either: this remains quite acceptable for a stop-over.

When we're on our way to Normany, we usually spend one night in the IBIS Avallon. This time we decided to give this hotel a go. We had a family room for 118Euros, which I think is very reasonable. You can park the car right in front of your door. The setting is really nice with lots of greenery and very quiet. The swimming pool was very welcome after spending most of our day in the car. The reception very friendy, helpful and efficient. Rooms, restaurant...really I have nothing to complain about. a very nice touch from our service person at the restaurant was that she arranged the cheese on our plate from mild cheese to strong cheese, we had chosen from a cheese platter. only thing is that the children's menu wasn't exactly children friendly (as a starter , they had a salad served with a strong mustard sauce) the other alternative was snails. or maybe our kids just aren't adventurous enough when it comes to food.

A classic case of 'overstatement' by a website. The rooms are nothing like the buildings pictured. They were very basic modern style motel rooms. Walls and roofs in need of a paint, smallest bathroom ever, leaking basin, non working airconditioner/heater, small single beds and the garden/park outlook were lawns in need of a mow! The meals were not as specified on the website which also omits to mention a street addtress and that they are 4 km from the town.
The set menu was nutritionally unbalance, vegetable free and certainly not up to the blurb the so called hotel promises. The wifi was good but the smug manner of the staff was a continuation of the bad experience. I doubt this establishment gets any repeat business.

We selected this hotel as a stopping point en route from Nice to Paris. It's located a couple of kilometers off the autoroute on the way to the town of Avallon. The hotel is composed of two parts. The main building holds offices and the restaurant while the rooms are arranged towards the rear in a motel-style configuration facing the swimming pool and tennis courts. The rooms are basic (bed, bathroom, small TV). About the only good point I can come up with is that free wi-fi is available.

The hotel's saving grace is its restaurant. Avallon is in the Burgundy region and the restaurant does its level best to illustrate all that's good about Burgundy wines and food. I ate an excellent kidney dish with a mustard sauce and the other diners were equally happy with their food. Desserts were excellent. As you'd expect, the wine on offer was top-class and not overly expensive - ask the waiter for some help to navigate through some possibly unfamiliar local vintages. And best of all, the staff were very accommodating of my daughter's gluten-free requirement and cheerfully found food that she could safely eat.

So the rooms are slightly crummy but the restaurant will score high marks if that is important to you. Curiously, the buffet breakfast was expensive and not up to the high standard of the previous night's dinner, so you might elect to miss this and grab some coffee and crossaints in the nearby town before resuming your journey.

Room Tip: The rooms are arranged in a motel-like configuration away from the main hotel building. If you don...
