TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Tourelle Du Beffroi Bourbon-Lancy
Wonderful place to stay. Utterly charming surroundings, very clean, lovely breakfast room (and breakfast) and terrace with amazing views of the old town and the nicest people running it. Very reasonable price, great for cyclists. Couldn't imagine staying anywhere better in Boubon.
