Very nice hotel; good location.

The hotel is a short drive from the Puy-de Dome and the "volcanoes" area, where we had spent the day. The staff was very welcoming and informative. We arrived after 6 pm, and the hotel restaurant was fully booked (I think there was a large party there); but the woman at reception (who was very pleasant and spoke excellent English) offered to make reservations for us at another restaurant. We decided instead to just go across the street to the local bistro, where we had a fine meal--nothing fancy or memorable, but just what we needed at the end of our day. We returned there for coffee/pastries the following morning; very convenient. Like most European hotels, the rooms are small; but given that fact, the room was lovely. Also note that the "toilette" is in a separate room from the tub/shower and sinks--also fairly typical.
We didn't have time to use the spa, but fluffy robes and slippers were provided. Towels in the bathroom were also high quality.
Parking: We had anticipated paying about 15 euros to park the car overnight with the hotel. But we parked in the public lot out front to register, and we found we could just leave the car there, put in the number of euros we'd need for the start of the next day's fees (we arrived after 6 pm, so free parking overnight) and the meter would "go on again" at 9 am. We put in 3 euros, which would have taken us 'til noon, 'though we left by 11 am.
