Ok, my room was tiny and totally unremarkable. But it was hard not to be won over by the quirky charm of this old fashioned French family-run hotel. It's smack in the center of the town but just far enough from the main square to avoid the noise. The staff were very friendly. To save money I took the fixed-dinner...

Not luxuary by any means, but a very friendly hotel. Located on one of the scenic pedestrianised town centre streets, it's a short walk to lots of restaurants and bars. We had one of the family suites, which is basic, clean, and perfect for groups on a budget. There's storage for motobikes and bicycles, and parking for cars. The restauant...

Reached Barcelonnette while enroute from Geneva to Nice, had to stop there because it was getting dark and the road onwards was very mountainous. Asked around and an awesome lady named Joelle helped us find this hotel - it is run by the same family for 8 generations. Very clean and nice, though E60 bought us a room with a...

Hotel was fairly basic in the usual French style. The positive was the very good breakfast (great if you are cycling or walking). Dinner was only so so - there are better options in the town. If you do stay here, avoid rooms 22 and 23 - they are on teh grouond floor and overlook a car park so privacy...

Arrived with a group of 11 on a Hautes Alpes cycle ride. Hotel is perfectly located in a pedestrianised area of Barcelonnette, with tables and chairs outside it was a welcome place to sip a few beers after our 65 mile ride from Briancon over Col d'Izoard and Col du Vars. Evening meal was very good as was the service....

I booked this hotel in February for a stay in July 2012. upon my arrival tired after a long day I was told that the Hotel was full despite securing a booking with credit card. The owner had booked myself and five friends in for the following day. He did search for other Hotels but all full in immediate area...

Central location near main square with its many good restaurants. Parking difficult at front of hotel. Space at rear but need a street map to find it. Family owned for over 100 years. Very small reception accessible only by 18 steps up to it from entrance (no joke with a heavy suitcase). There is no lift in hotel. Rooms are...

We were also a group of 4 classic cars from UK and we were made most welcome. After reading previous reviews, I was sceptical about booking, but we were well looked after, with use of a garage and an excellent restaurant. other guests were cyclist groups and they had big dinners at night and said the restaurant was excellent

The owners could not be more helpful or accommodating. We turned up in 4 classic cars and parking space was made for us (I think others might have been evicted for us!) It is a very old building - the front entrance is pedestrianised, so arriving by car, yo need to find the back entrance and first impressions are not...
