My wife and I have just stayed for two nights with 2 other couples (friends), we were all over to celebrate our friends 40th in a nearby village, Hotel Jenny was recommended locally and were were not let down, from the minute we stepped foot inside the hotel were made to feel really welcome, and nothing was too much effort (thanks Monique), the rooms were spacious and clean, we had a garden view which was lovely (Feb) however the only small negative was not having an opening window, all you get is balcony door which meant some careful air management (up & down in the night). Although the hotel feels like it is in the middle of rural France(nowhere), it's not, its about 30euro's from the Airport 40euro's from Basel. However to help further, Hotel Jenny will provide you (very cheap) with an all day travel pass for the local bus service which is just up the road (5min walk uphill, much to the wife's disgust) it takes about 30mins to get to Basel and runs every 30mins, we used it and it was great.
Being british you always think that a good old english breakfast starts the day on the right foot, especially in a hotel, however this is France and so believe it or not you get a traditional continental breakfast, which welcomes you every morning and is lovely, makes a change. The food is always fresh and there is plenty of it, I particularly loved the coffee. As for facilities there is a pool & sauna underneath the hotel which we saw, but sadly did not get a chance to use, but our friends did and they had a good experience. There is WI-FI through-out the hotel, sadly we had problems connecting, but funny enough our friends didn't, so maybe it was a location thing or just bad Karma? Enough of my ramblings if you are looking for a rural hotel close to Basel with a friendly service then this is the hotel. We had a great expereince and will stay again if the opportunity arises, thanks to all the staff and especially Monique for her help and patience :)) *****
