“Could do with a lift in areas....”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

A fairly basic hotel that does have an early 80's feel to the decor: Fifty Shades of Beige/Brown. To be fair it doesn't market itself as anything special/unique. Clean in our room. Not sure why there wasn't a fan as it must be baking in high summer. Not sure why the shower head holder was an inch above the bath: totally useless. Doesn't take much to drill a hole to put it at head height. Staff pleasant and friendly. Okay for one night if you are touring/passing thru.

We have already recommended this hotel to a wine group I know. The food here is excellent and a short walk away from Caves Morgon- a must for wine lovers.
The rooms are not the height of luxury but they are comfortable enough. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, so the odd screw hole can be overlooked.
Our room had a vineyard view and we had a quiet enough night.
As you drive into the town there are quite a few vineyards offering tastings - so would have liked to spend a week here.
Will go back -

We spent three nights here and I was disappointed to say the least. We’d booked ahead and explained my special diet. They had already said they did not provide gluten-free bread-despite the fact that there was another guest for the first 2 nights who was also gluten-free and the patron remarked how common it was/is these days. No soya products were provided despite me asking for yoghurts for breakfast. So, I ate what I had brought with me myself, what I could pick out of a very uninspiring fruit salad and an apple compote.

The cuisine at dinner purports to be gastronomy. It isn’t. It was not just on my diet that things were tasteless. The chef seems to have an aversion to garlic or onions and apart from the jellied chicken terrine on the first night which was salty, the rest needed a good dose of seasoning (and we usually think things are overly salted). There was no thought to what a meal might taste like without the proposed sauce, no drizzle of oil on a salmon fillet with dry rice and dry beans and courgettes. The chef even managed to make a roast thigh and drumstick of chicken dry. Desert was non-existent. I was offered an apple or a sorbet!

The room we had over-looked the parking. The first two days it was very warm. We tried to sleep with the window open on the first night but there was constant traffic noise. The second night it rained and the drumming on the leaves of the tree outside our window drowned the road out. The third day was colder and wet…but even with the window closed the road noise was bad.

The room itself was smallish and was clearly the height of modernity in 1980-now it’s just tired and shabby. There were screw holes in a headboard where lights have been replaced; a notice on how to use the phone, except there isn’t one, one socket for the TV and one for everything else (2 laptops, an electric toothbrush and a phone charger), and only 1 extra pillow. The bathroom is tiny with nowhere to hang the shower attachment and a shower curtain which smacks of grubbiness even if clean. There is no extractor fan in the bathroom so no ventilation which makes it smell of years of dampness and as soon as the bedroom window is closed the whole room becomes oppressive and stale smelling. Both the room and particularly the bathroom are in serious need of updating and modernising.

On the plus side, the staff are friendly enough. You can buy a bottle of wine and if you fail to finish it they keep it for you for the next day. There are some organic sorbets on the menu, of which the strawberry is delicious. The terrine of lapereau en gelee is delicious. The wifi is good with codes that last your entire stay so no need to keep bothering reception for new codes each day. The double bed consisted of 2 single mattresses meaning you disturb each other less and they have moved away from traditional blankets and gone with duvets which I personally prefer.

NB this hotel is in the village of Villie-Morgan not Corcelles as indicated on Trip Advisor.

Room Tip: Possibly one at the back might have had slightly less road noise.

Stayed one night - hotel a bit shabby rooms very basic and all the same - a bit like a 60's motel in UK would be - think Crossroads! But it is what you would expect from a 2 fireplaces/2 pots level of logis. Food OK. A reasonable place to rest your head whilst touring Beaujolais, and you could walk into the town for a better meal.

Room Tip: get a room that overlooks the pool - the ones at the side overlooking the car park are noisey - you...

Turn off the busy autoroute and a few miles up in the hills you find this hotel. A little haven of peace and tranquility. Pleasant pool and surrounds, friendly staff, and great food and wine. Satisfactory rooms with all that you need. Have stayed here twice and will definitely be back. Excellent recommendations on local vignerons.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool preferable to car park

My wife and I stayed here on Wednesday 10th August on our way home from northern Italy towards Calais.
In a nutshell we were extremely disappointed -
The staff were terrific, spoke good english, very friendly and attentive
The public rooms - bar, restaurent - inside and outside - were very attractive, clean and well kept
The bedroom was tired and battered in need of a refurb with a dreadfully marked carpet as was the hallway

In the evening we ate in the restaurent - (in doors due to the temperature) which was very pleasant, but - bearing in mind that EVERYONE in the immediate local area were growing vines in their gardens, on their garage roofs and any available land - in the hotel vin de maison was not available at 10euros AND the cheapest alternative bottle of wine on the menu was 18 euros! we chose a bottle that cost 20e and later discovered that the same wine was on the shelf down the street for 7.60e!!!!!! terrific mark up!

In addition I'm afraid I didn't rate the food, a salad starter was very nice but the main course, we selected fish, was very similiar to Aldi's 'boil in the bag' fish and associated sauce.

No thank you, there are some things in life that you only do once and a night at Le Villon is not one of them.

My husband and I stayed for two nights in order to visit Chateau de Pizay just down the road, where our children had bought him a row of vines for his 60th! I had booked a room with pool view, but was initially given a room overlooking the car park at the front of the hotel. The English speaking receptionist changed this for us with no problem. The room was very comfortable and despite the crowing cockerels in the nearby park we slept well. The first night we ate out on the terrace and had an excellent meal. The second night was not so warm so we ate in the restaurant. Breakfast was also very good. We were able to take advantage of the swimming pool, which was a bit cold, but there were plenty of sunbeds available to warm up again. Pool towels are provided.

Villie-Morgon has a lovely public park, accessible from the hotel gardens, and a nice restaurant which overlooks it where we had a very good lunch.

Would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.
