Well managed hotel. We had the same room we had about 9 years ago - very nicely updated. Tricky to park and dump luggage but worth the effort. Staff and owner very friendly. Breakfast simple but good. Great restaurant linked to the hotel.

We received a very warm welcome. The room was spacious and furnished with carefully chosen antiques including a four-poster bed. A lovely place to relax with lots of thoughtful touches. The linked restaurant is just a few yards up the street. The staff there were also very helpful, and the food was well-priced and very good.

Great room, great concierge who was very helpful with luggage left in Avallon,. Quiet and charming room. Good french style breakfast. 100 metres to the basilica. Great meals at the associated restaurant

This quiet setting off the main street has the most beautiful wisteria covered patio. The food was really excellent with a good range of items for the breakfast. The service and the friendly staff made it feel very welcoming

What a beatuiful location. Charming 18C house with lovely front Wisteria covered terrasse. The Reception room is very beautiful and the welcome friendly. You can park the car outside to drop luggage, then you have to move car to official car park out of town- but that was fine. Our room was 103- very large with twin beds making a Super King bed- nice bedding too- and 2 windows overlooking patio. Large bathroom. Breakfast was excellent - cold and hot buffet. Personally I would have preferred classical antique furniture rather than neo classical black, and black curtains- and a large shower rather than step in shower in slippery plastic bath. But no matter - it is a wonderful place and we will return in the autumn and have a little more time to explore. It was very hot (30+ C) and no air con- but a ceiling and standing fan were available- as well as an extra cotton sheet to sleep over duvet.

We arrived later then expected, after the hotel reception was closed. We informed the hotel the night before and this was not an issue. An absolutely beautiful building and our room was outstanding, spacious and bright. The breakfast was lovely too. It was an awful pity that we only had one night in the Village. We will definitely be back.

Outstanding hotel, slap bang in the middle of a beautiful hilltop town. We had the Kandinsky room which wasn't the biggest room however it was of a high spec. It had aircon which was great as it started to get a bit mad temperature wise.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I had one of the smallest rooms (Kandinsky), but it was adequate and comfortable. Nice windows. The best part of the hotel is its location, within a 5 minute walk from the Basilica. Breakfast was on the pricey side, but the fresh-squeezed orange juice was great. The one downside for me was that there is no common room to meet with other guests. Note: You must adhere to the checkin time. There will be no one there if you arrive early.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights as a family. Getting into town to the carpark was hard work. Phone directions and hotel directions didn’t seem to match. Study maps before you get to town. Then we had to drag suitcases in the 39 degree heat. Not a good start ! The lady on the front desk was not that interested in our arrival. She didn’t offer any information other than the room key. Much less friendly than the other hotels we have stayed on this trip. The location of the hotel is very good and there is a nearby ice cream shop the children enjoyed. The room 202 itself was visually appealing but probably not the best pick with children. The sofa bed the children had to sleep on was quite uncomfortable and squeaked frequently at the slightest movement. Waking people at night. The room had an air conditioning unit which was essential with the high temperatures. It was also very noisy even on the lowest setting. You need earplugs to sleep with it on. If your travelling without children I could recommend this hotel. With children. No.

This is an outstanding hotel in a beautiful hilltop town. Our room was in the attic, stylish, high spec, comfortable, with everything we needed. The bed was large and comfortable, the sheets crisp. The bathroom had a good shower and everything was spotless. Both bedroom and bathroom had windows which opened over rooftops and trees towards the cathedral tower. Breakfast was good.
