The clever place to stay in Reims has to be this neo-gothic hotel owned by the Jarrige family, who believe in old-fashioned service. Breakfast rivals Château Les Crayères as the best in Champagne. Heated indoor swimming pool, gym, sauna, glistening marble bathrooms stuffed with bundles of fluffy, white, satisfying absorbent towels that are changed twice a day and even Wi-Fi. What more could you ask for? And while some might regret there being no restaurant, I find it a positive relief not to be pestered about whether I will be dining every time I enter a French hotel!
