I had two specific requirements on this trip: Secure parking and restaurant. Neither, it transpires were available to us. Ordinarily, I would say the road parking is fine, but if you are looking for secure parking,as billed, it's not there!
The welcome was a bit patchy....bad start, I suppose, but no orientation...time of breakfast, evening meal arrangements etc...and no welcome pack in room, so we had to search a bit to find a notice on the landing. Every time we were in reception, Madame was engaged on the telephone, and we were unable to get her attention.
There were about 7 rooms occupied that evening. I think the rooms on the first floor are larger...we were on the second floor. Would have been nice to have been offered a better room since they weren't all taken...but hey-ho!
The room. Small, very dated, far too busy...which was ok....we are used to the quirky Logis standards....but not acceptable were:
Peeling wallpaper and mould on walls in the corners. Just remove the awful paper and paint the walls!
Mould at high level in shower. There was no fan. There was a hole in the ceiling. (where the fan once was?)
Electric heater in shower room had hanging wiring wrapped up in insulating tape (!)
Very very small shower room, with a curtain to the shower - pet hate.Old old fittings, some loose....Really does need updating.
Manky old blanket on the bed - not needed as there was a perfectly fine duvet...so why?!.
Restaurant - there's really no great choice. We noticed the previous nights "menu" only had one plat, and it wouldn't be our thing. We therefore decided to eat out.
On return from our pizza, Madame was outside chatting to what I can only presume to be her restaurant lady...."Allez! Les Anglais! " She urged when she spotted us...presumably in case we were expecting to eat on our return! It was perfectly audible to us as we were literally only metres away...and didn't exactly endear her to us....not least because we are not English!
Breakfast - seemed ok apart from curly cheese,dry meat and hard bread. Croissants were ok, and there were boiled eggs, and Madame did bring some boiling water for tea.

All in all pretty bad....had we arrived earlier, I really would have gone elsewhere....not a good experience...the only good thing is the proximity to Reims.

Auberge du Val de Bois
Conveniently 20 minutes’ drive from Reims (and its magnificent cathedral –our reason for visiting). Free on-street parking in front of the hotel. (Ignore their bit about parking onsite.) Pretty village; shop opposite. Pizza-type eatery about 10 minutes’ walk away. Pleasant lady host - barperson - dining room waitress; has limited English. Evening meal: menu of the day (with choices)… three courses for €22. Large room with en suite and lovely garden view at back.. (Note when booking: they have only two rooms with ensuites. Otherwise shared bathroom facilities.) Free Wifi OK. I’d stay there again, especially if visiting Reims.

Room Tip: If you want ensuite, check that you get one of their ensuite rooms. Most others have shared facilities.

The owners are super friendly. Their small hotel is more like a B&B. Maria speaks pretty good English and can offer helpful advice on anything. Her husband, the Colonel, is a master chef. I was on a 31-day drive thru 6 countries, and needed a haircut. Maria recomended her friend in town and I got the best haircut I've ever had, at a very fair price. Her restaurant recomendation was also a winner.

The rooms are comfortable. The free Wi-Fi works great. And the breakfast was perfectly fine. This is a place I definitely will remember! I could revist friendly little Warmeriville, France just to get another haircut!!

Room Tip: I think that all the rooms are pretty much the same. Quiet, nice sized and comfortable.

Went on other reviews and decided to give it a go. Quirky, charming building and friendly welcome. Madame kindly offered us some homemade cakes (stale) which went to the ducks, and unfortunately presaged things to come. Decor also rather odd...Bedroom VERY green and bathroom very pink with no knob (just wire) on toilet for flushing and heater barely attached to wall..but clean - no complaints there. Though bed not v comfortable.
However cannot recommend more strongly that you avoid dinner. Menu or nothing. Wine by the carafe - filled from a variety of already open bottles kept in the chiller. We know this because although it has a pretty dining room - not full - we were given a table in the annex en the waiter's route to and from the kitchen...by the chiller. Main of beef cooked as a steak (from the thigh it transpired) so tough it was almost impossible to cut, but delicious compared with the cheapest frozen chips which had clearly gone from freezer to deep fat fryer - but not for long enough. Dessert of creme brulee - stone cold and custard under the topping congealed and separating (perhaps even older than the cakes we were given). We finally complained and were offered an alternative - but almost everything requested was off (sic).
.And quite bizarre that the buffet of hors d'oeuvres (thank goodness we opted for the fresh salad) was cleared (into the chillers) whilst diners were still on their mains....presumably for serving tomorrow or the day after. At this point we declined breakfast.
They are trying to please but cutting so many corners on food that it is so bad it's almost funny, until someone gets ill.

Room Tip: No private parking though shown as such in Logis info.

We stayed here for 2 nights in late August 2011 and loved it. It's not 5 star and it doesn't pretend to be. The staff, and in particular Marie, the owner, were most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.The rooms are not huge, but clean and comfortable. The meals were fine, like I said if you want 5 star food, stay in a 5 star hotel and pay the price! All four of us loved the evening meals, the local beers & wines and the generous breakfasts. Wameriville is a lovely village with easy access to the Champagne region and excellent sightseeing. We would happily stay there again.

Room Tip: There is no lift so book a room on the first floor unless you want to keep fit.
