Pleasantly comfortable rooms, good brasserie and a bit off the beaten track very close to the source of Badoit. The excellent value Menu is worth experiencing at 28 euro for 3 courses. The breakfast was rather average though.

This property is difficult to find, but it is the price to pay for a quite stay... the hotel is situated in the middle of the nature, and promote the "silence" to the guests...unfortunately, guests are not always respecting the rule; rooms are clean and cosy; the staff will do his best to answer any request; they are polite and...

I'll start saying: don't let the address fool you, the gps will not lead you there. That said the hotel was wonderful, very well furnished, peaceful, with big rooms, clean, fast wifi connection and everything else. As an addition the restaurant is excellent beyond expectations, and surprisingly cheap all things considered. Staff was kind and helpful. I strongly advise this...

Clean and cosy rooms, very good bed, food at the brasserie is good, not exceptionnal, but good. However, this hotel is a "relais silence", which means that the surroundings are quiet and silent. Which is the case. BUT the doors of the rooms are slamming like hell ! Birds could have woken you up, it's the doors that do. A...

St Galmier is the source of Badoit mineral water so quite appropriate for a wonderful weekend to resource with friends or family. We had an hour in the spa followed by an hour long massage, followed by a beautiful dinner, followed by a lovely long sleep in a comfortable bed. If that doesn't put a smile on your face i...

My Parents stayed in La Charpiniere for three nights in July this year. They had a very enjoyable experience. They were not confident speaking French but found that the hotel staff were capable of communicating with them most of the time. The hotel itself has been renovated since they stayed in the hotel in '97 and huge improvements have been...

This property has beautiful grounds on the edge of Saint-Galmier. It is a close walk to the city center, and close to the surrounding countryside. There is a nice lobby bar, outdoor bar and cafe, and a pool. Good wifi. Clean rooms.

Bathrooms much improved since the renovation. Beds still quite hard but with new furnishings. Breakfast still very DIY. Still think it lacks warmth or rather homeliness. Don`t like the mosquitoes either.Have had both Menu of the Day at Lunchtime and evening meal in Restaurant and both were ok.

I recently stayed at La Charpiniere on business and had a delightful 3-night stay and overall experience. Check-in was pleasant. My room was located on the first floor, it was clean and had a lovely semi-private patio overlooking a grassy courtyard. It was nice to be able to prop open the doors for some fresh spring air. I accidentally blew...
