    Great views, superb food - one of our best stays

    If we have a criticism of the hotel it was that the bedroom was very small with only just enough room for our things and the whole place could do with a bit of an update, being rather old fashioned. However, everything worked well and was very clean

    This family run hotel is about 500m from the centre of La Roche, up a steep hill but it was well worth the effort to stay there. After a friendly welcome our bikes were safely stored in the wine cellar. The dining area, lounge and all bedrooms of the hotel have wonderful views over the river and valley, unlike most of the others in town, and we felt we really appreciated the area much more than we would have done had we stayed down below. We opted to eat in and it turned out to be the best meal of our holiday. It was cooked by our host himself and although a relatively simple menu it was absolutely delicious and not overwhelming.

    Wouldn't have changed a thing.

    Location, location, location: LaRoche-en-Ardennes is a most breathtakingly beautiful town, and Hotel des Genets is the most breathtakingly beautiful place from which to view it. Monsieur is helpful and breakfast is wonderful. The views from our room (#9) were of the town and river, and also of the hill behind; the bathroom was huge, the water hot, the bed comfortable, the hotel common areas very charming. Prepare to drive/walk steep hills. The town has some superb restaurants.

    The (bed)rooms are rather small whereas the bathrooms are rather big. Again, that is part of the charme of this hotel.

    It is a very nice friendly oldfashioned hotel with a great atmosphere. We have been there before and will certainly come back in the future. The owners are very nice people who make you feel welcome. He is a great cook. We hope they will not make this hotel completely uptodate as being what it is now, determines it great value. The view from the hotel upon the village is priceless.

    Bedroom a bit small compared to the size of the huge bathroom. Difficult to get to at the moment by car as the bridge in the town has been closed for renovation, but that is not the hotel's fault, but better signage at the bottom of the town would be a good idea.

    Fantastic breakfast, great views across the valley and town.

    No plugs in bedroom. No folded towels in bedroom; Towels are hanging so you dont know if they are clean or not. When asked about it they said is because of lack of space...!? Breakfast starts at 0830. Should be from 7 am. Had to wait!? Also no buffet at breakfast like depicted on internet it seems they have buffet but in reality not so!? In the evening wanted to eat at hotel restaurant on saterday and all tables were booked with people from outside of the hotel. At least they should have offered roomservice but this they did not do and they didn't have roomservice at all!? At least should be mentioned in their roominformation book, that need to book a table in advance but nothing of such..

    Nice view

    Stayed here for a week. Made to feel welcome by the owners. Their spoken English was far better than our very limited French. There is nearby on-road parking: we never had an issue with parking. Access to the bedrooms is via the stairs i.e. there is no lift. Hotel has stunning views over the local town. Some good XC mountain bike trails accessible by rinding direct from the hotel, and plenty of local walks (though many involve significant gradients). La Roche town was bustling, with plenty of eating places.

    The floors are creaky in some rooms. Showers are variable, some are mounted low with no curtains. Two single beds pushed together can still move apart in the night.

    Patrick welcomed us despite being late. We inquired about restaurants in town but he offered to feed us, dinner was fabulous and so too was the breakfast. The views are to die for, the town is beautiful, the whole area demands more exploring.

    A comfortable family run hotel. We arrived late after giving warning by telephone and were received warmly and provided with a delicious evening meal. The hotel is perched above the river with lovely views of river and town and is very quiet. La Roche is an interesting town with a castle and there are fine walks all round.
