Le Morvan
Reviewed 26 July 2011

This was an overnight stop on the way back from Italy. We have stayed in the Yonne department of Burgundy before but never in Quarre-les-Tombes. We are careful researchers of potential stopovers so we did know Le Morvan was developing a good reputation and I must say we were not disappointed. This is an old style logis with a serious restaurant and bedrooms. However Etienne who runs it has turned it into a slick [and given its location and scale], high quality, operation. He seems to have done it largely on his own efforts as not only was he in the kitchen for dinner but he also presided over breakfast.

The rooms were smallish but tastefully done, well-maintained, spotless and for a hotel of this size very well equipped. Dinner was excellent in the best traditions of French cuisine with imaginatively presented, beautifully cooked food. Breakfast rested heavily on home made pastries; perhaps the carbs were a bit overdone but it was a nice way to stoke up before dashing for Calais. The service was pleasant if occasionally a little tentative although the boss compensated by being very much an amiable and professional presence. The location could perhaps be held slightly against Le Morvan. Despite the evocative name Quarre is a large, undistinguished, slightly sprawling village in a rural setting and Le Morvan sits by the side of one of its main entrance roads. That didn't affect our sleep although I guess the safer bedrooms in that regard look out onto the rear garden. Bear in mind this is slightly off the beaten track and as a stopover you have a reasonable diversion from the motorway so it isn't a very busy place.

Is the diversion worth it? I would offer an emphatic affirmative to that. We are seasoned travellers in France with a long history of stopovers in this kind of hotel; this was about as good all round as I remember and I would certainly recommend it unreservedly to any other potential guests not least because it represents a standard that pessimistic critics feel may be disappearing in France.
