Located in Saint-Galmier between the Forez and Lyonnais mountains Hostellerie du Forez offers an on-site restaurant and bar with a courtyard patio.
Pros: We stopped over whilst on a motorcycle tour and our room was perfect as it had plenty of storage for our gear. The room was recently decorated with a very large comfy bed. We liked it that much that we made sure our return journey passed by the same hotel. Unfortunately that room was not available and the other one was not so special, although still nice.
Pros: Nice restaurant and breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff.

It has a good lively bistro with excellent food, and a Michelin starred restaurant, though you will need to book well in advance if you want to eat there.

Pros: The hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful, and greeted us with a beer and a glass of wine on arrival. The pool was very welcoming and clean and provided some respite in the heat.
Cons: As mentioned in other reviews the Chateau was very 'dusty', and there were many dead bugs (and some not so dead) - an entomologist would love this place. Breakfast was a cautious affair with wasps and fly's divebombing the guests - but it was summer, it was hot and the windows and doors were open.
Pros: Very friendly owners. The Food in the evening was super (Raclette) The atmosphere in the Castle is perfect. Thank you
Pros: Original and fascinating interior, great hosts, food and good company in the evening with a bottle of wine. A must for anyone who is looking for something different.

This is so UNIQUE, you will never forget it!
Cons: Ok, this was not the most proper b&b I have visites, but man oh man, we enjoyed it!!!!
Pros: Beautiful, eclectic, rustic! We have been travelling through Europe for some time now and the Château has been the highlight!

Michele and Henre are perfect hosts, Michele prepared a fabulous dinner and nothing was a bother for them. Highly recommend!

Pros: Henry and his wife made us feel very welcome and cooked a splendid meal for us on the 2nd night. The Chateau is bursting with an eclectic mix of antiques and charm. The bedroom was very comfortable and the shower room very clean and modern. Rooms accessed by spiral stairs in the turret.
Cons: First impressions aren't great when you arrive to a messy courtyard and barking big dog. However the hosts locked the dog away so we came to no harm. There was only 3 places to eat in la foulloise it was pretty deserted.
