Was travelling via motorbike, had to abort our original route as the weather was closing in on us and we were getting colder and colder. Was getting to desperation point of finding somewhere, stopped and asked a local who pointed us in the direction of Les Messageries. It was a welcome sight in the snow! I ran in to reception dripping wet and shivering and was welcomed by the lady owner (who also happened to be a motorcyclist), who totally understood our plight! She quickly opened their private garage for us to park the bike up, and welcomed us into her hotel. She had rooms available, but thoughtfully offered us one with a large spa bath in order for us to have a soak and warm up! The room was lovely, just what we needed after a long day's ride. Very comfortable, lots of nice touches - tea and coffee facilities, biscuits, water etc. We booked a table and stayed here for dinner. Lovely menu, large choice, helpful friendly waiter who spoke good English. We were well looked after. Had a brandy at the bar after dinner, purely medicinal and to ensure that we were totally warmed through! Had a great night's sleep. Very quiet and comfortable. The staff were so friendly and helpful with the motorbike, would definitely recommend to any motorcyclists looking for a little bit of luxury.

We booked this hotel without reference to Tripadvisor (bad mistake). Had we had the facility to review what Tripadvisor reported, we certainly would not have stayed there. In making our booking, we had to give a Visa account number, so, when we checked in, we were unimpressed even at first glance, but we felt that we had to stay, as we might otherwise be charged for the booking. The location of the hotel was near a disused railway yard and we found it highly unimpressive, but it seemed to get business from people stopping over, as the hotel is just a few kms from the motorway. We would certainly echo the views of another reviewer, who spoke of “a bland blonde who despises you and should change jobs”. The room was basic, as was everything else. Wifi in the room, although advertised, we could only access in one spot on the corridor. At breakfast, which cost €9.00, there was an additional charge for 1) having an egg, 2) having ham, and 3) for having cheese. The soaps in the bathroom were tiny and were not replaced. We generally felt that we, as guests, were a nuisance, in the eyes of madam. On our arrival home, and when my wife checked her Visa account, she found, in addition to the price of staying there, 2 debits of €60 each that we could not understand. The hotel, when queried, claimed that we had taken a painting from our room and that we took a bottle of wine from the mini bar. When challenged, they advised that one €60 charge was in error but refused to refund the other. Only today, almost three months later, have we got a refund of the 2 amounts. France is a big place, with many hotels, do yourself a favour, pick another!
Shabby and way overpriced

Ideal for people who want to spent the night in rooms that are concoctions of old furniture. The minibar (which just stands in the middle of the room) is not second hand, but fifth hand looking at the damage on it. They also claim to have free WiFi in all rooms. If your room is the lobby then this is correct, otherwise forget it. A last tip for those who never the less want to have a bad night: the restaurants in the historic (up) town are much better value than the so-called 'cuisine' with three star prices
On recommande chaudement.

Lors de nos dernières vacances, nous cherchions à faire une halte à mi-parcours. Idéalement situé entre Bourges et Béziers, nous cherchions un hôtel pour nous accueillir en famille, sans prendre 2 chambres (nos derniers enfants ont 5 et 6 ans). Le groupe accord n’ayant pas répondu à nos attentes, nous avons réservé cet hôtel à St Flour. Très très belle surprise! 1. Personnel disponible et réactif 2. Réservation facile par mail 3. Chambre famille très confortable 4. Salle de bain grande et kitch 5. Petit déjeuner gargantuesque C’était vraiment un très chouette moment. Avec le minimum en grande simplicité, ce qui était très agréable. Personnel irréprochable. Notre seul regret était de pouvoir prendre le petit déjeuner mais pas de repas du soir (merci l’absurdité du pass sanitaire) car le propriétaire est Toque d’Auvergne. Alors que nous vous habitué nos enfants à manger de délicieux mets fait maison, nous n’avons pas pu goûter à ses plats. grosse frustration. On y retournera sans hésiter, d’autant que la visite de St Flour nous a beaucoup plu. Aucun bruit à l’extérieur ou à l’intérieur, on a dormi comme des bébés. On recommande chaudement.

Séjour agréable. Environnement très calme. le petit déjeuner est servi sur mesure. Nous avons reçu un très bon accueil. Il y a une parking extérieur juste devant l’hôtel et un privé sur demande. L’hôtel se situe en ville basse.
