Stayed for one night on our way south arriving around 8pm. The restaurant closed at 8.30pm but they wouldn’t let us have a table. The building looks medieval but it may have just gone down hill!! Room was small and grubby. The bathroom was small and the toilet had been used and not cleaned. It all just felt very neglected. Cost is €112 for the night for three of us through Bookings although the price charged by the hotel was listed at €130 for the same room. We booked breakfast initially but then realised it was €12 each for a coffee and croissant so cancelled. There was no parking at all for the hotel. There was a bit of on street parking but that was limited. We ended up about 500m away at the top of the hill. We asked the lady in the hotel (?owner) about parking - she looked out the door, shrugged and waved in the general direction of up the hill!! So staff/owners are not the best either. Town seems very nice but I would look elsewhere for a hotel. We only chose it because we booked late and it was the only one we could find in the area we wanted to be. Book early and get somewhere nicer. We did g to a pizza restaurant about 100m up the street - pizza cooked in a wood burning oven - yummy!! Glad the hotels wouldn’t let us eat. …
Let's cut a long story short. Hotel in a very simple style, no luxury items, don't expect the average 'modern comfort' ..... It's clean, small bathroom and a private loo. Don't go there for the luxury bedding but there is a TV and even a wi-fi connection. Prices are OK; In june we spent €70 for the room, excluding breakfast. The 'chef', owner and cook (same person) is rather introverted; No professional smiling. He is streight forward. If he likes you he'll talk, if not he might be only polite. Being tired we did not want to do the tour of the village/town with a lot of touristy type of restaurants. The Beffroys dining room is nice, charming and you are being served by the daughter of the boss, while dad and mother are busy in the kitchen. I've got no idea how good his english is, but next morning I asked him about his professional background and he told me that he has worked during his youth (he is around sixty now) in a couple great Parisian restaurants. Indeed: the dinner was of excellent quality, very tasty, unexpectedly fresh food, no pre-fabs. We tried some local wines which were nicely drinkable but not the quality of wines we are used to (we are from Mâcon/Burgundy) This guy is a very good cook, and being an amateur-cook myself, I could appreciate some of his 'secret information' about suppliers of greens and meat.and his making of some sauces. There is some local fish, caught in the vulcanic lakes and nearby rivers; I tried the Omble-Chevalier (Salvelinus Alpinus) in some sort of raw-smoked version. Eating remains -of course- a matter of taste ! Still, I highly recommend the restaurant of the Beffroy hostellerie. (We had a 3 course menu for € 29 p/p) Besse & Sainte Anastaise is a nice renaissance/medieval village to be used to tour the area by foot, bike or car. Nice vulcanic lakes, great views, and other nice villages and small towns to be visited like f.ex. Murol. Have fun & enjoy your stay......…
We pinpointed the Beffroy through our SatNav as we searched for lunch. We arrived at around 1.00 pm, were the only diners but were warmly greeted and immediately seated on their small terrace overlooking the road. Little traffic - pedestrian or car - so not a problem. The menus were really interesting and written with humour. We chose the regional special menu focused on Omble Chevalier and Vache Salers with an exceptional dessert. M Legros explained the menu and went out of his way to make us feel welcome even helping to pinpoint a restaurant closer to Salers, where we were staying, for dinner.
We were delighted with this beautiful, mountain village but very disappointed with the Hostellerie du Beffroy! The rooms were a la 1950's and had seen better days. The welcome was cool to say the least, despite the fact that one of our party was a fluent French speaker, and I had the feeling that the patron and patronne were thoroughly fed up with what they were doing. We didn't dine there, being put off by the price and near empty dining room but had two excellent dinners in restaurants in the village. Breakfast was overpriced and disappointing with cold coffee and indifferent pastries. Never again!! It was an oppressive place and we were jubilant when we escaped after two nights. Overpriced.
This small hotel is located in the heart of the village of Besse, which is itself a charming mountain resort with a great selection of small restaurants. the building itself is a converted Bellfry and you should be ready for the bells to sound every hour between 07.00 and 23.00, a minute or so after the bells sound in the church opposite. Do not stay here if a few church bells disturb you! Parking is available in the hotel garage, but even in August i found parking for free on the street outside was never a problem. Elsewhere in the village there is plenty of car parking. The standard room should come as no surprise to anyone who has stayed in a French 2 star hotel. The bed was on the small side for a double and the mattress had seen better days, but the room was spotlessly keen and decorated in a charming rustic style. Breakfast at the hotel is continental and perfectably acceptable, but you can get better value at one of the cafes 20 ms walk away. The hotel restaurant is sublime however. You will not eat a better gourmet meal anywhere, and the attention to detail is worthy of a Michelin star. I would have expected to pay 4 times this price in Paris for equivalent food and with service that would be nowhere near as attentive. free wifi in communal areas doesnt extend to the bedroom, so be warned. The husband and wife team who run the hotel bend over backwards to make you feel welcome. I would say that it is the warmest welcome I have ever felt in a French hotel. I will certainly be coming back.…
