“Great for dining at Auberge de l´lill next door”
Reviewed 21 July 2011

We spent one night early July 2011 at this hotel because we wanted to dine at Auberge de l´lill, which was roughly in the middle of our way from Lausanne to Frankfurt, and therefore a nice point to pause during the drive. The place offers great value for the price, considering that the only other truly convenient option is the pricey Auberge des Berges which houses the 3 star attraction. I will not go back to Auberge de l´lill for foodie reasons, but if I did, I would definitely spend the night here again. Nice breakfast buffet to boot, during which we noticed many faces from last night dinner next door!
One negative point was the thin walls. We were the unappreciative audience of our next door neighbour's snoring, which was of fairly impressive volume

This hotel was even better than I remembered in 2005. The owner was holding out our room key as I arrived in the door and this time we arrived early enough to jump in the refreshing pool after a horrid drive through a million swiss tunnels to get there.

The bed embraced us into a refreshing sleep after a delicious dinner at la truite restaurant by the river. The prices at the auberge restaurant mentioned by other reviewers were of the "once in a lifetime after winning the lottery" variety. The hotel seems to have been done up a bit since our last visit and we have promised to return.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 1st floor overlooking the courtyard to enjoy the flowers

We decided to treat ourselves with a dinner at 3 michelin star l'Auberge de l'Ill but could not splash out on a room at the lovely (but pricey) sister Hotel des Berges so we ended at les Hirondelles. It's literally across the road so ideal.
It's clean, comfy so highly recommended. Although I'm not sure we would have stayed there if we did not go to the 3* restaurant!

We were looking for a quiet, clean and comfortable B&B for a long weekend in Alsace. I couldn't have been more pleased with Les Hirondelles. The rooms were comfortable, very clean and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Couple that with the reasonable rates and in my opinion, it cannot be beat. We had a wonderful time in Alsace and will definitely be back in the region - and this B&B!

I can't really comment too much about this hotel because it was literally used as a crash pad following a dinner at the nearby LAuberge de L'Lil down the road.

What I can say is the owners are very trusting. We booked via email, yet they didn't ask for any credit cards details - just a reply to their email asking for confirmation. The same when we arrived, no asking for passport or credit cards that you get in all the chains, just check in, show room and ask what time we were likely to be leaving.

The room was comfortable, had a good shower and a Loewe flatscreen TV (I don't think there were any English channels). It had shutters on the windows so it darkened the room perfectly.

All in all for the price we paid, excellent value, and a lot less than the £350+ Auberge were wanting, which meant we could have a nicer glass of wine!

We chose to stay at Les Hirondelles on a Saturday night as we were going to the Michelin three star restaurant, the Auberge de L'ill, which is 50 metres away, in the evening.

The hotel is pleasant and provided an excellent alternative to staying in the lovely but expensive hotel attached to the Auberge. It was clean and traditionally decorated and was just what we were looking for for one night. The breakfast we had the next morning was nice, but we would have preferred to have been able to opt out and not have it included in our bill, which we couldn't.

The hotel was a good base from which to explore the Alsace region, as Riquewihr and other villages on the Alsace wine route are just a short journey away. The village of Ilhauesern itself is centred largely around the Auberge so if you're arriving early it's worthwhile going off and exploring some of the other villages nearby.

A pleasant, comfortable Logis, just across the road from one of the best restaurants in Alsace. We have tried on two or three visits to book online on the Logis website, but were always told there were no vacancies. Each time we then telephoned the hotel direct (they don't speak English), and there was no problem getting a room.
