We have stayed at Hotel De la Poste on about 10 occasions over the past 30 years and the restaurant of Daniel Doucet was always the main attraction.His son,Frederic,is now the chef and we were interested to see if the high food would be as good as we remembered. However,the first thing we noticed is the ground floor has been refurbished and extended to include a larger restaurant area,new kitchen,patio area and new breakfast room. The bedrooms have also been enlarged modernised to a very high standard.We stayed in late September in room 9 (a junior suite) at 110 euros for one night.The suite was large enough to have a lounge area,desk & seating area,flat screen TV (with BBC World), air con and everything you could need for a relaxing stay.Our only minor complaint was that the hanging clothes rail was onlywaist-height so any long dresses of trousers trailed on the floor.
In the restaurant we chose a 50 euro set menu of 4 courses plus various extras ( beetroot sorbet-very good) and petit fours.Our main course was a sizzling beef dish which is sort of the 'house signature dish' - which was very good but I would preferred to have had less fat and more lean meat - my wife claims that there are people who actually like a lot of fat!
Apart from that the whole meal was really good and there was also a an extensive wine list with reasonably priced wines as well as the more expensive.
The other impressive thing is that all the waiting staff were very friendly seem so knowledgeable about the food and drink that they are serving.
The hotel is situated in the centre of Charolles and there is ample parking around.
Interesting to see that the recession bites everywhere as the 2 other hotels in the town
(Lion D'Or and Moderne) have both closed.
