Stayed here for 3 nights in September. The hotel was clean, pleasant and well appointed. The location beside the river Yonne was very attractive, especially when the evening sun lit up the old town across the river. There were attractive gardens and in more pleasant weather eating on the terrace would be charming. I believe the restaurant is of high...

We were looking for a place to stay prior to going a Locaboat holiday at Joigny and this hotel is only 150 meters from the Marina. An older building that has been refurbished, it is a quite, beautifully placed hotel right on the River Yonne. The rooms are large and spacious and most look out over the river or the...

Our party of 5 enjoyed a wonderful evening meal on the Terrace overlooking the Yonne courtesy of head Chef M Joubert. Maybe it was his estranged wife who featured in the first series of "The Tunnel"! Le Rive Gauche is situated on the opposite bank of the river from the 3* Michelin and it's hard to imagine doing much better...

This hotel has three stars, but deserves four. Nice, modern, well maintained rooms with a terrace, gardens and within ten min walk from the old town, directly at the river Yonne. Friendly staff, effective check-in and check-out. Very good restaurant, a good selection of regional food. The cheese cart is simply amazing! The breakfast buffet quality and selection is above...

Over the last months, we have made Le Rive Gauche one of our usual Sunday stopovers on the way back to Paris. The reason is quite obvious, it is really an excellent value in a nice surrounding. Facing the famous Cote St Jacques from the opposite side of the river, Rive Gauche is in a more modern building. Setting is...

A small but excellent hotel right on the riverbank, with a lovely terrace and gardens, within walking distance from the bridge and the old town. The rooms are modern, fresh, with views over the river or the garden. I would not come here for just the place, but if one has any business in Joigny or passes by, it is...

We had an amazing stay. The hotel was wonderfully accommodating. The restaurant was absolutely delicious and exceeded my expectations. Our room was very large which was great for 3 year old to play and have some space to move around. Only complaint would be the pillows were very hard.

This is a charming hotel, with pleasant and well appointed rooms, in a iovely riverside setting. It's between five and ten minutes' walk from the centre of town. There is a pleasant outdoor terrace where you can sit and enjoy the view: we thought we may have a drink there but after a while it became clear we'd have to...

Being in France on a bank holiday is taxing at any time but when you are staying on a canal boat with a 90 years young mum looking for a great meal we felt we may be in trouble. We had a drink in a really friendly bar in the old quarter in Joigny and the customers advised us to...

We had heard about this restaurant from some Parisian friends and so when we found ourselves walking past the door we were tempted in by the very reasonable looking prices for their set lunch menus. No booking was needed and although the restaurant was not that busy the atmosphere was relaxed pleasant and professional and we had a very enjoyable...
