very friendly and helpful reception . room very comfortable and clean . good free parking facilities . good buffet breakfast . 8 out of 10 there was no town map available at the hotel . quite far from the town center .
Staff was very helpful. Evening meal was fabulous. Gourmet 5 course meal with great service. Breakfast had a nice assortment and was a step above the typical French Continental of beverage, bread and jam. Not an English or American breakfast, but it was nice. If the Sauna was operating and the Whirlpool Spa was water was warm then I would have marked them Excellent. They have nice faciliites but don't really promote their use and don't keep them heated/operating.
Helpful staff, good restaurant. Twenty minute walk to town centre.
These are very friendly people, with a high level of general welcome & service and an outstanding restaurant.
Good location at edge of city, relatively quiet. Plenty of dedicated parking. Very good restaurant - good selection of wines & food.
We enjoyed our one night at Hotel Brivas, the staff were friendly and efficient and the manager/owner was very personable. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. It's only a short walk into Le Puy, but we ate in the hotel restaurant which was fine, if a little expensive.
A fun, slightly Bohemian place to stay with a welcoming, relaxed and lively atmoshere. Beautiful location, off the beaten track. Lovingly restored old building. Good food at a reasonable price at the restaurant (both dinner and breakfast recommended). Refreshing swim in the outdoor pool (with unrestricted opening hours). The children also liked the rare facility of having playground equipment. We were able to fit our family of 2 adults and 4 (young) children into one room, which was a bonus and helped make this a very good value place to stay. No frills (eg toiletries) and the bedroom had only one high up, small window but then the price was good so not really an issue. Normally I wouldn't particularly like having a campside immediately outside but the atmosphere was great here and it didn't matter at all.
the friendly owners, the rustic ambience
Freindly and easygoing, good restaurant basic room
The friendly owners. Excellent food. Tranquility and made to feel part of the family
Lovely people who owned it and very nice location Facilities extremely basic and didn't feel very 'clean' - grubby!
Location and food were great. We liked the whole atmosphere as it has been done out very nicely. Quite noisy in rooms
friendly people, small scale, place to stay with children, clean, correct, .... No remarks (we only stay for 2 days)
Fantastic views of surrounding area (from outside of the building). Very peaceful. Very good evening meal but flies everywhere. No window in room expect small skylight in ceiling (especially annoying owing to the inability to see the fantastic views!) Room layout was 2 story with a steep, high ladder leading up to a balcony area where the children's 'camp' style beds were. With young children this was not ideal as the wooden stair was very steep, and the only light switch for this area was at the top of the stairs. So the children would have had to get out of bed in the dark and approach the open stair to find it. If this layout had been made clear we would not have booked this accommodation. Room, although clean, was very basic and looked very "used". Ie. It looked as if only the bare essential room maintenence had been undertaken. Shower area particularly was in need of attention (ie. A good clean of the tiles) - This cannot be excused as "Typical French rustic charm"! Dinner was made a bit of an ordeal by the number of flies in the dining area - we resorted to covering dishes with our napkins to protect it whilst eating. We refused to eat the breakfast owing to the bread, butter, jam etc. being left out on tables for guests, completely uncovered, without any consideration to the many flies (as we witnessed) sitting on it.
Excellent food, family run, very helpful and sociable. Out of the ordinary and very memorable
The food and the relaxed atmosphere. No toiletries in the bathroom.
