    These are not dislikes but things to know. a. The hotel reception is closed from 1 to 4 pm daily so check-in is not available for those hours. Just a consideration for first day arrival. b. the WiFi is not within range of all units and you have to go through the total login process for each access. if not within range, go to the reception for access. c. Some of the units are two stories with the toilet on the first floor. Sort of a bother for those who have to get up during the night.

    Facility was very nice, the staff and location were great, and the hotel restaurant was excellent. The parking was also excellent.

    The extremely slow service in the restaurant, very disappointing. 20 minutes + without the offer of an aperitif, we had to get the attention of the receptionist who was passing through. Only 6 other clients dining at the time.

    Broadband was a bit flakey in the room

    We were given the room Napoleon stayed in on his trip to Avalon. A room frequented by movie stars and Royalty. Need I say more? Amazing

    The Breakfast is simple and eating cereal with a tea spoon was challenging!!The room we had was a bit limited with seating.It was a double room with one comfortable seat only.

    It was the old traditional style of the Hotel that appealed.The town reminded us of old France.Less Touristy.If you want a busy tourist town Vezeley is only 20 minutes away through some lovely old villages and some excellent wineries.

    Very traditional hotel where Napoleon stayed over night on his way back from Elba. The feeling of a tradition is weaker than the one that this hotel had its best times in the past. We got a room under the roof with a very small window to the street. It heated up too much for sleeping well on a warmer spring day. There are probably better rooms available in this hotel. Breakfast was really bad for the fact that it has to be indicated the evening before what and when you want to eat. Fruits salat with bad taste, mini croissants like soft rubber, baguette not crispy etc. Staff showed understanding and didn't charge the 15 EUR for the breakfast.

    Nothing special above expectation.

    The rooms require some updating and decoration.

    The staff were very friendly and professional. The breakfast was good value, however the dinner was a little expensive for what it was. This hotel is in an excellent location.

    Nothing, was all around marvelous.

    The staff could not have been more accommodating, we went to Avallon on our first night in France and were too jet lagged to appreciate the restaurant, regretfully as fragrance from kitchen was very alluring, and our hostess recommended a lovely casual dinner spot. Breakfast was fantastic and very generous. Charming town with so many nearby churches and villages and rolling countryside. Highest recommendations.

    Nothing - almost perfection

    The suite was extremely comfortable, tastefully furnished with a sense of the building's interesting history. The restaurant was fabulous, exceptional food and excellent service. The maitre d' even opened a 30 year old bottle of Corsican Red, at no charge, for us which had been found in the back of a cellar during renovation of the property. Front desk was courteous and helpful.
