The hotel was an unexpected stop due to deteriorating weather on a journey from Aosta, Italy to the North of France. It was easily accessible from the motorway and is situated in the historic quarter of the town near the impressive three story viaduct. We were well greeted by a friendly and helpful receptionist. We were lucky to find a parking space in the courtyard next to the hotel, otherwise there is on-street parking next to the hotel. Our room was a little small but had all of the adequate amenities. The restaurant and Bistro were well supported by hotel guests, locals and visitors to the town. The staff were very attentive and served a very tasty and typically fine French meal, accompanied with a pichet of local wine, which was reasonably priced. There was a bar on the first floor. Breakfast was equally well served and comprised a buffet of local meats and cheeses, accompanied by fresh spumante orange juice. Our check out was speedy and efficient leaving us with fond memories of a comfortable evening stop-over and our walk around the historic quarter, shops and welcoming bars of Chaumont.
