After an overnight ferry trip from Corsica and a drive from Marseille it was a pleasure to find such a quiet place to rest for a couple of days. The rooms are much larger than most we have encountered accross France and are beautifully appointed with a large comfortable bed, a small table and chairs and a lounge chair as well as a sideboard where you have tea and coffee making facilities and which also contains the minibar fridge. The bathroom is also quite large with a separate bath and large shower and the toilet is also separate which is a bonus. The room is tastefully decorated and bright and airy although the large window needs to remain closed at night because of the insects. Whilst the hotel is located on the fringe of the town away from the hussle and bussle it is within easy walking distance of a number of restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets. There is also a lovely garden area where you can sit and relax at the end of the day, or alternatively you can take a short walk to a great little pub for cold beer or a glass of wine. The location of the hotel is also within a moderate walking distance of the old town which has lots of character and is well worth a visit. Apart from the historic remnants in the old town there is excellent shopping and many fine restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy a coffee or a snack. A lunch at the museum restaurant is also worth a try, but get there early as it gets very busy. Would definately recommend this as the place to stay in Rodez.
