For foreigners reading those lines, let me start by saying Sainte-Croix is a small town, nestled on the Jura mountains. Still famous for its automated music boxes, it now is a place mainly known for weekend walks in nearby forests. In this context, the Hotel de France has achieved a not so easy task to attract, with its lovely and...

First we were sceptical because of the price, that is fairly high for the region when you look at the hotel superficially. However for the services done, the cleanliness and order of the room and over all; the quality of the food, the price is very appropriate. A hotel, that has truly earned being called excellent.

According to Trip Adviser's reviewers, the best option for eating in Ste-Croix is a place called Café 12. But my hill walking trip was on a Sunday when it was closed and I didn't fancy the local kebab house or a gloomy tea room, so I went to the Hotel de France. The restaurant is called Bistro 77 and it...

In the heart of St Croix in the Jura mountains, this hotel has everything you could wish for. It is run with clockwork efficiency ensuring that guests have the most relaxing stay possible! Dinner was yummy. Rooms very comfortable. Excelled wi fi. Prices very reasonable. Just the thing after a day in the mountains!

Nothing was too much trouble for the splendid couple who run this hotel. The rooms were comfortable, the food was excellent and the feel of the place superb. I was travelling with a group of 25 people and was their leader, so finding ourselves at such a wonderful hotel was a bonus for me. Not only was everything about the...

I enjoyed a very pleasant overnight stay at the Hotel de France in St. Croix on Sunday-Monday 21-22 September. The rooms are a bit basic but clean and well equipped. The dinner was excellent and the menus quite creative. A very nice breakfast followed a nice quiet night's sleep, as St Croix is a pretty quiet town. The best part...

Stay in Hotel De France two times on business trips. Very neat, efficient and friendly operation by the owners and staff team. This time we have a twin-room and a special room with a view to the town church. Rooms are clean, beds comfy and WiFi works well. Sainte-Croix seems to be a quaint town but the hotel is quite...

“Apologies, hit swimming pool and fitness centre by mistake and can't seem to deselect them. It has no swimming pool and the outdoors represents its fitness centre, hence the five star rating! If you want to be able to do business and pick up wifi easily from your room, then let Rolf and Marina know. Some rooms have better connectvity than others,”
