Aux Armes d'Estaing
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Estaing
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2017

Loved our stay with Pascale. The hotel was oldish but traditional and cosy, the service and the food were excellent, amazing presentation of all the dishes and especially the desserts! Pascale, the host was a real character. We would definitely come again even if negociating the stairs for our elderly parents was a little tricky and despite the lack of vegetarian or other options on the menu. Some people never seem happy!

Room Tip: Be aware that the hotel has no lift

Be warned the room is basic but clean. Ear plugs are a must -the walls are thin and you won't sleep a wink without them. The food here is the best I have found on the GR65, this little restaurant could go up against the very best 'fine dining' in the world IMHO. Especially when considering the price tag of the menu, the best value for money by a long long way. The owners were very friendly.

This building next to the hotel restaurant is torn to shreds.
Going up the shabby stairs up to your room in the dark is a ordeal.
The room is terribly basic, so is the shower.
A tiny tv not in fonction and no wifi in the whole building.
You can hear people talking in the room next door.
It is like a youth hostel in the sixties but far from being the price of a youth hostel.
Food was very average: the meat was good but the entrée was very probably a defrost mushy small onion tart, the desert was a bad quality supermarket cake.
Altogether not a memorable stay.

Comfortable rooms with an old world feel. Nice bed, good sized room, bath was OK. Only downsides were that the hotel was very noisy, both from other rooms and the street (street facing room) and that the hot water was so hot that one could really get hurt (I did burn a finger just touching the hot water pipe that connected to the hot water dial). Ear plugs totally solves the noise issue. I suggest that the management of the hotel put a cautionary note in rooms regarding the hot water. The restaurant is top flight.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the tstreet

I'd stress, after reading other reviews about the hotel, that we only ate lunch at the restaurant - but that was *very* good. The menu was read out, rather than being printed, so it was a little tricky to keep track of prices (particularly on the wine, they don't seem to do pichets, so we just accepted the recommendation on a half-bottle) but it isn't that expensive. The food was beautifully presented and very nicely cooked, so I would definitely recommend it for a lunch if you are visiting this lovely little village. The location is wonderful, just by the river, and the friendly staff speak English (despite our best efforts!).

We stayed here while walking the 'Chemin St. Jaques' the hotel is in a lovely position, right on the river but the very small room we were given is in a rather shabby, hostel like annexe. The food was good, and the 'Madame' was very friendly , and it was a very interesting village.

We arrived on foot as clients of Sherpa Expeditions. No instructions from Sherpa saying we may be accommodated in another building. Hotel looked pleasant and welcoming as we approached it across the bridge towards the town.
However we were ushered into another building close by. The dismal room approached through a dark and uninviting hallway complete with grimy artificial flowers, was very dusty and there was much mould in and around the shower room and bedroom wall & doors. Shower stall had an indescribable area of dreadful damp extrusions growing around the doorway.
There was no mattress cover on the very ancient and lumpy sprung mattress. On asking if we could have a blanket to cover same we were told that it was not necessary as the mattress had been sprayed !
Madame lost her fair command of English when we asked why we were not accommodated in the main hotel , but eventually offered us a room there ,( when she had previously declared it was full ) if we paid extra.
This hotel was the only really dreadful place we stayed on our otherwise well organised self-guided walking tour with Sherpa. To be avoided at all costs.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the annex. It is old , dreary and dirty.
