They give their opinion

Great place to stay and/or eat if visiting the gorge

“A lovely hotel with great location, views and food. The staff are wonderfully helpful and indulged our rudimentary French with some English translation when needed.
The food was extremely good in a pleasant restaurant overlooking the gorge. The alcoholic ice creams were a favourite of ours.
FYI it is a two minute walk along the road – mainly on the other side of bollards to the Pont D’Arc viewing point which may be had to park at (see photo). May be a bit unpleasant to walk if a lot of traffic but we found it a doddle first thing. Looks good for people cycling the gorge as there is a pool and you can hire rooms with Jacuzzis. ”

Great location very close to Pont d’Arc

“Great location, just a short stroll away from Pont d’Arc. Good restaurant and nice pool. Room was right sized with a/c (necessary in August) and nice little bathroom. Basic breakfast and very friendly service. All in: A perfect base for exploring the valley and the Ardèche river.”

Great little hotel with a terrific location!

“Lovely little hotel just down the street from the Pont D’arc. Easy to find and easy to drive to nearby attractions. And we got upgraded to a room with a private hot tub out back! What a treat after a long drive and a lovely dinner. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms stocked with shampoo and soap and plenty of towels, and I was able to control the air temp in the room on a cool night (rare in France)! I’ll be back to Pont D’Arc and I’ll be back to Hotel Le Belvedere.”
