“Old Charm”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

We had a quiet back bedroom overlooking the garden. It is very old fashioned but has a lot of charm. After walking around the town we found a really good restaurant almost next door to the hotel which had an excellent standard of food. The hotel breakfast was one of the best I've experienced in France, with a huge choice. We had a puncture just before arriving at the hotel so the next morning the hotel owner got out his compressor and inflated the tyre for us so we could drive the short distance to a garage to get the tyre repaired.

Warm, clean, large and friendly. A very dated hotel on the outskirts of the central town. Hard to find at first and looked derelict on a wintery day! When we found it and drove into the courtyard all of this changed and it became quaint and hospitable. The managers were very nice and we enjoyed our stay, although facilities were basic and very dated. Overall a nice stay.

Room Tip: Take a room at the rear overlooking the courtyard

close to the center of Avallon (picturesque town with surrounding walls and nice old houses), this hotel has quiet rooms overloooking a beautiful garden. Those in the front may be noisier because of the main road. Friendly and warm welcome. great breakfast !

This hotel has rooms overlooking their garden (ask for one of these!); they are clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff are polite and friendly, there is secure parking and the hotel is just a short walk from the old town - and all at a lowish price. Excellent breakfast too. Downside? Well it didn't bother us but the room must have last been decorated decades ago with awful wallpaper even stuck on the back of the doors; maybe this is part of its charm and why the price is so good.

I wanted to update a previous posting and was surprised to see the review below which indicates the rooms do not have aircon.
All the rooms I have stayed in have individual LG aircon units which are very efficient and they work year-round.
The rooms on the first floor are my favourite as they have larger windows than the second floor and a bit more privacy than those on the ground floor.
It's a small hotel which offers value-for-money accommodation and the owners have always been most helpful in putting my coolbox packs in their freezer overnight etc..
Normal price is in the region of €62 per room night with breakfast and parking etc. on top.
Very reasonable and well worth a visit: probably not best for a long visit but I'd say it's great for a short stay.

Reviewed 31 May 2012

I agree with Le Traiteur's comments, although my room was not as clean as I would have liked. I had asked at the time of booking to confirm a room with air conditioning, but it had apparently not been turned on in the building in mid-May and the staff spoke no English and it was a warm night. Sure, you can sleep with the window open (on 2d floor), but our room faced onto a busy street and there are no screens so quite a few insects flew in. There is a large sign on the side of hotel that it has English speaking TV stations, but we couldn't find them. On the plus side, the hotel is within easy walking distance of train station (even dragging some roller bags) and restaurants in town are decent. Also, a very fair price at about 60 euros for room. Breakfast was extra - although not much more and it was an adequate display.
