“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

A pleasant hotel in the town square. Staff were friendly and attentive and spoke good English (far better than our French!) Our room was large with a comfy bed and really good pillows - not so for some of the hotels we have stayed in. Bathroom was clean and well appointed and breakfast was plentiful, including scrambled eggs. Secure car park was next to the hotel and good bars and restaurants were within easy walking distance. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of the hotel with views of the fountain the the square - lovely!

This hotel is in the centre of town at one side of a square. There is a very good restaurant incorporated into the building and a garage by the side. We were greeted by a friendly English speaking receptionist. Our room was not large but adequate for one night and had very efficient air-conditioning which was most welcomed. The lift is quite small and there were still a few stairs to climb when it got to the second floor. Would be happy to stay here again.

Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights on a road trip to Italy and found it very good.
The room wasn't the biggest and had a strange "split" bathroom and toilet that could have been in one room, instead of having to go to one side for the loo and the other for the shower/bathroom!!
Unfortunately our shower leaked all over the floor, and, despite telling reception a couple of times, it was never sorted!
The arrangement for the garage was a little peculiar with one having to move one's car a couple of times to accommodate others!
On the big plus side, the hotel's in a great central location, the staff were lovely, the bed very comfortable, it was spotlessly clean and had a great breakfast!! We didn't dine in their restaurant as one is spoiled for choice in Bourg, but it looked very nice and was always quite busy.
Would certainly stay there again, any time!!
Highly recommended!

After 2 or 3 years we were once again travelling through France and decided to stay once again at Hotel de france, Bourg-en-Bresse. We were not disappointed as we found the welcome, the hospitality, the food, the facilities better than ever and will certainly return!

Located in the town centre on a square with a fountain, the Hotel de France couldn't have a better location. It is a traditional French hotel and has managed to retain it's character whilst offering very comfortable and a good standard of accommodation. We had a good sized room overlooking the square and was not particularly noisy, the spacious bathroom had the usual shower, basin and w.c.
There is public car parking outside in the square, with several bars and restaurants nearby.
The hotel does have a brasserie which is very popular, we did not have the chance to sample it's delights unfortunately.

Nice central but quiet location, lovely building. The room was quite small but the bathroom was huge, not recently modernised but all clean and fine. Nice big towels and plenty of them, but the shower gel is super hard to use, not good if you don't have a lot of strength in your hands. Friendly staff, all in all a good place to stop over but the town seemed pretty dead so not sure about a long stay.
