We stayed at this place last year on our way to the South of France; We were not disappointed on this second visit. We even had the impression that the Prestige room was better than the last time; Personnel is extremely courteous and helpful. The restaurant offers very good food and the breakfast buffet is convenient. What more can you ask ? We highly recommend it.

We had pleasant stay in Mercure Villefranche en Beaujolais. Good wine from this area and very good dinner made us cheerful end of work week. We were very surprised by Michelin awarded cuisine at Ici et La restaurant on site. Every course was very good and stylish and Pouilly Fussé was excellent. We can recommend even longer stay than we had. Just only narrow passes through the garage for our big car was little bit uncomfortable, but it was only one flaw.

We wanted to try for a first time Mercure hotel having been often to Novotel, Pullmann and Swissotel. This stay did not meet our expectation despite the fantastic restaurant it has. The room was certainly big four our family (2 adults and 2 kids) however despite requiring some refurbishment and improved isolation (facing railways) we were also somehow disappointed by the half-board offering. When arriving, we were informed the offer was only for the adults (so kids were extra) as so was also the breakfast when normally we often take breakfast offer for everyone... So not the greatest stay... But the restaurant on teh evening and the quality of the food was excellent and appreciated by the whole family! Next time we will look for probably the Novotel near by or other ones.

It is my thrid visit there in three years and they do keep up to the top. You can tell management is good and the hotel is well run.Breakfast is not spectacular however pretty good.THey do have a smimming pool or more exactly a very small swimming pool but it's ok if there isn't anybody there.Did not try the restaurant but did heard various good comments about it.

All the staff were excellent. Our room was spacious and insulated from the TGV's. Nevertheless, I would have preferred windows that opened (even though the a/c was effective). We had dinner once; I was very happy with my meal but my wife less so. We also twice ate from the room service menu in the bar area and all these dishes were very good. The car park is very convenient.

We stayed at the hotel as Part of a Sport group Trip. We waited almost 30 Minuten to get at least the Mineral water, then they served a soup and after that we receiver the bread. The Chef the Service seemt to have no education, on how to serve, He handed the plate ober the table, I assume he was handicaped or just to lazy to walk around it and serve it proberly. We ordered 3 bootles of redwine and receiver them after we had the main course!!! The food is good, but with this bad service I personaly doubt that I will stay at, or recommend the Mercure Chain ever again

three days in this hotel for the second time in the last 5 years. A very good experience fueled by highly professional staff and a very good restaurant. Room (exclusive one) was large, not noisy and no vibrations even if fast trains line (TGV) a passing in front of the hotel.. A convenient underground parking is also available. City center is at 5 minutes walk....

Worst hotel ever!! accessibility is poor Rooms are small Bad service Rude receptionists Service in the restaurant was very bad They serve the left overs from breakfast.. Bread was so old, you could break something with it, while they pretent to serve high quality food Personell does not know what they are doing! You pay a lot for nothing! coming from the highway, there is no possibility to come to the hotel directly, because you can’t turn, so you have to cross the whole city first. On the site there was mentioned they still got a room with a bath.. but when we asked, they did not have one... the rooms are very small They served the wrong dish, when we mentioned this was not what we ordered, ( we ordered pork, they gave beef), they removed the marrow pipe also on the plate and replaced it with pure parsnip .. and then served it as a new dish within 1 minute. The Bread was old ( probably the Bread which was left from breakfast).. the personell never learned basic hospitality rules.. Breakfast was bad as well, very limited, not tastefull and when we came in at 9:20 am they told us we Only got 10 minutes to eat, because breakfast was Only till 9:30.. 10 minutes later, after we hurried ourselve to eat something, the same waitress came that she made a mistake and we could eat till 10, which is still very early for finishing up breakfast in such a hotel When we came back from breakfast, we could not enter the room again.. while we did not have to leave our room yet.. When we mentioned at the reception that we were not happy at all, the did not respond at all.. they just ignored everything we said..

Clean rooms, very nice breakfast selection. Parking indoors, friendly staff, good location. Very clean room, very nice breakfast selection. Decent dinner restaurant , friendly and accommodating staff at reception and restaurants.

Staff a Reception very helpful as were those in the restaurant. Room was acceptable but heating was slow to warm room up. Meal in the restaurant was good with steak cooked as requested. Breakfast selection was reasonable.
