“Family affair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

Smart, comfortable country hotel presided over by the redoubtable Pierette Agulhon, whose family have run the business for three generations.

The rooms are comfortable and cosy with decent showers and copious cushions, but the main attraction is the salubrious restaurant where fine meals are served amid much 'ceremonial' shuffling of plates and glasses. Goats cheese, and cheese in general, seems to crop up frequently in the cooking, and there's a magnificent cheese board to tantalise you for dessert. Sadly, the splendid 'fromages' are only served to you in modest portions.

My only real complaint would be the rather mean breakfast... A 2 Euro supplement is payable if you want to augment the standard ration of toast with anything as fanciful as a bowl of cereal. Everywhere else we've ever stayed in France, cornflakes are a basic entitlement rather than a chargeable luxury! It also seems a little bizarre that orders for breakfast coffee are taken the night before. On the plus side, the selection of breakfast jams is excellent.

The hotel has a pleasant garden across the road, with tables, chairs and a topiary donkey. A few yards further up the road is a short steep path up to a lovely viewpoint overlooking a river gorge.

La Lozerette is set in fine walking country made famous by Robert Louis Stevenson, and offers its own four or five-night rambling packages. The walk to the west down the river to the charming nearby town of Florac is recommended, as is the long but rewarding ridge walk from Le-Pont-de-Montvert along the GR70.

La Lozerette is a very well run small hotel in a village just outside Florac. We were made to feel very welcome by Mme Agulhon. Our well-equipped family room was a decent size with a sofa bed for our son and a pleasant balcony overlooking Cocures.

The restaurant is deservedly popular, and the staff were very helpful and patient in their explanations of the menu and extensive wine list. The excellent cheeseboard was a particular highlight.

Breakfast was similarly efficient and pleasant - including a choice of three different types of hot chocolate which we had to pre-order the night before.

A really nice stay - a typical French provincial hotel at its best. We hope to return.

Very pleasant village hotel a few minutes drive from Florac. Very small room 'The Stevenson' but quite adequate, very clean for an overnight stay and a little balcony for a sunset/sunrise view to the hills. The dinner was quite superb, service terrific especially from 'Miranda' who was spot on. The wine list very extensive, if little pricey, but some fine wines to select from. We treated ourselves to an Alain Chabanord Alouette 2007 (apologies if the spelling not perfect) and relished every sip.

Great to have safe car parking at the rear. Only slight downside was the breakfast, sparse at 10 euros pp, but the honey was amazing!

We spent a wonderful few days walking in The Cevennes (but not with a donkey). We felt very looked after by Pierette's attentive & impressive staff team in her characterful little hotel. Our room was compact but comfortable. The food was excellent & outstandingly supported by Pierette's carefully chosen wine list that will suit all tastes & pockets.

Can't recommend this small hotel highly enough. Pierette and the staff were so friendly and accommodating - on our honeymoon and our car blew a tyre just down the road; they managed to find us a room on the fly. Our room was small but very well appointed and the view up the valley was spectacular. Excellent food and wine cellar and no problem catering to my husband's vegetarian tastes. 5 mins to Florac with Stefane's friendly taxi service - an all round great experience, they even fed us on the Tuesday, when the restaurant was closed.
