Set back from the main road, this is a budget hotel that suits fine for a short stay in the Jura, and is very well situated. It also has the great advantage of being open all year, with the restaurant open daily. There are no frills in the rooms, but all was spruced up relatively recently by current owners and it is comfortable enough with WiFi provided free. The big surprise is the unassuming restaurant, where you should enjoy a really decent and well-priced dinner, focussed on local foods. The wine list is extremely well-priced with a choice from the most local producers, notably a complete range from Domaine Pêcheur.

Useful information: Rooms: €55; breakfast: €7.50; menus: €12.50 (lunch) or €21 - €30.
