We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stopover on the way to Nice via the A71, just taking a chance on the first reasonable looking place we encountered at the end of a long day of driving. I had been going on to the family about how it's still possible in France to pick a random village and have a great...

This was our third visit to the hotel, but the first after a gap of about eight years. In that time it has been renovated but the attitude of the management has changed to one of grudging acceptance of guests as some form of unavoidable nuisance. The food in the restaurant, whilst good, is nothing exceptional for the price. The...

I stayed here again this year en route for the south of France. I reviewed the hotel last August, where I felt that the hotel was OK but I did comment that the service was slow in the restaurant. Yet again, the service in the restaurant was very slow. It was 20 minutes before we were given a menu. After...

The Hotel de France is a shining example of what an energetic young couple can do to transform an ageing property into a comfortable modern hotel without losing some of its more traditional features. Our bedroom was quiet and comfortable despite overlooking the street and our breakfast served in the elegant restaurant was first class. We did not dine in...

The restaurant at Hotel de France certainly has pretentions to greatness (silver service, white table cloths, etc), but I'm afraid that our experience was the quality fell well short of the mark. The wine list is poor (I find that having no half bottles on a wine list is unforgivable for a start), the waiting staff were inexperienced and poorly...

We arrived very late last week on route to Calais. We were accommodated fabulously! Lovely suite for the family and wonderful dinner! The recommended wine from the region sublime! They couldn't have been more helpful!! Will skirt round Clermont Ferrand next time and head for here!!

The Hotel de France is located in the small town of Montmarault, and it is locally popular for it's dining, fine dining. The elegantly furnished dining room is a fine setting for dishes of a high standard, well presented. The service is formal and adequate, the atmosphere is a bit stuffy. But we enjoyed the food, fine dining, very much....

Hotel less than 2 kms from the motorway and so a very convenient stopover. Rooms simple but clean and warm. Good restaurant with tasty well cooked food. Having stopped here 2 or 3 times we have now decided that we can no longer stay here because of problems with the house dog. A very boisterous young Boxer that runs wild...

This small hotel is 35 minutes north of Clemont Ferrand and is a great place for the weary traveller to rest either going south or north. Restaurant is of an excellent quality, friendly staff. They have rooms for wheelchair access.
