Free wifi, outdoor swimming pool, very good quality food, obviously cooked from fresh every day. A large restaurant, separate breakfast room, bar area with seating, bedrooms with views over the surrounding countryside. Superb breakfasts with fresh bread, croissants, pain au chocolat, a large variety of fresh fruits, home made jam, bacon, egg and sausage and more. All beautifully laid out. The hotel is set on a quiet road in a lovely garden. The bar has a variety of excellent wines, beers, spirits, soft drinks. We travelled as a group by coach and stayed for 2 nights in all which we thoroughly enjoyed.
We had 2 nights as part of a group at this lovely family run hotel near Cluny, France. from the moment we arrived we were made welcome by the proprietor, who runs the place with his wife, doubling up on occasions as receptionist, chef and waiter. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast buffet was one of the most extensive and finest I have ever experienced in over 40 years of travelling in France, with a selection of fruits, fruit salad, patisseries, fresh breads, home made conserves, cold meats, a variety of cheeses, hot saucisses, sliced bacon and eggs as well as a variety of teas and coffee. the evening meals were made with local produce and we had two excellent regional dishes on our two nights - chicken and boeuf bourguignon with generous starters and desserts. The local wines and drinks were all reasonably priced and altogether it was a truly memorable stay in a traditional French hotel of a type which is sadly becoming fewer every year, and which i would highly recommend.
Firstly this is not in Chalon. It is a few km south of St Gengoux le National, approximately 30km away from Chalon.
The welcome we received was most peculiar. The lady on the desk did not speak to us - perhaps afraid that we would not be able to speak French (we can) and she merely indicated with gestures and took us up to our rooms. Despite the fact that the hotel was virtually empty we were given the smallest room in the house. 2 nights in fairly cramped accommodation.
The power in the bathroom cut out several times and if someone was seated in there then it was not possible to enter the room.
The room was clean and freshly decorated.
Wifi was free but very flaky and I ended up taking my pc to reception to use it.
There is a restaurant on site but when we went there it was dead and empty so we ate elsewhere. When we returned at 10.00 the reception area was shuttered off.
Breakfast in the morning was with a much friendlier face. The cheese, ham and fruit salad were a bit tired and I would have preferred to pay less for simple baguette and croissant. The coffee was actually unpleasant: if you want white coffee I suggest that you get black and add milk yourself, avoiding the cafe au lait.
Checking out was efficient.
I would stay again if I had to but couldn't really recommend. Just a bed, really.
