by | Updated on 7/11/2023 | Hotels | 0 comments


The Hostellerie La Cheneaudière is a 5 star hotel-spa located in Colroy-la-Roche, in the Bruche Valley, and belonging to the prestigious Relais & Châteaux network. Ideally located in a peaceful setting, it is a beautiful place to take a break. A true haven of peace from which one emerges serene and rested. I have already been there several times, it is a real favorite, perfect for a romantic weekend in Alsace!

Atmosphere of the hotel La Cheneaudière

The host has 45 rooms: double rooms of different categories (Forest, Village, Terrace, Mountain, Garden), but also different suites with their own whirlpool on their terrace. I have stayed in a Les Terrasses room on each of my stays but have also had the opportunity to visit some of the suites: all have their own personality, I understand why they are so popular for a romantic moment.

I was already perfectly happy in my room Les terrasses. These rooms are very nice, with a comfortable king size bed, a bathroom with a beautiful bathtub (it can also be a walk-in shower) and a TV. The room also has a Nespresso coffee machine. The decoration is elegant. As a bonus, the place is obviously extremely quiet…

Thegeneral atmosphere of the hotel is very pleasant, with recently redone common areas where modern and old elements found by the owner are mixed (yes, La Cheneaudière is a family hotel! It is also certainly what gives it a part of its charm….). I loved the Bar Calixte and the room with big comfortable armchairs and a pool table…

The building is superb, with a beautiful view of the village of Colroy-la-Roche and the surrounding area and a peaceful garden. In addition, the service is very considerate. A place where you feel good right away!

Breakfast at the Hostellerie La Cheneaudière

The breakfast at La Cheneaudière is fabulous, combining quantity and quality. The buffet is huge and composed of many home-made, organic and local products. Really excellent!

The food includes a wide range of cold cuts, salmon, eggs cooked to order, delicious Climont jamsWe offer a wide range of products, including yoghurts and honey from the region, cheese, pancakes on request, pastries, a large selection of bread, waffles, dried and fresh fruit… There is something for everyone, including those with allergies: gluten-free bread and cereals, and soya and almond milk are available.

As for drinks, you will find organic fruit juices, squeezed orange juice, cider, Crémant d’Alsace, coffee and tea.

The breakfast room is very pleasant: you can choose a large, bright room with a magnificent green ceiling or prefer the intimate atmosphere of the Calixte bar or the veranda. Ideal for a good start to the day!

Gastronomic restaurant

The restaurant of La Cheneaudière is a gastronomic restaurant. The chef Jean-Paul Acker offers a French cuisine of great finesse and made from high quality products. I particularly appreciated the fact that there is an entirely vegetarian menu, the “Menu Potager” in 7 courses: this one is really excellent, which is rare enough to be underlined. This is real vegetarian cuisine with incredible tastes and flavors. Notice also to omnivores, vegans or people suffering from allergies or intolerances, you will find without problem your happiness in the menu of the restaurant and the team will know how to adapt if necessary.

Nature Spa of La Cheneaudière in Colroy-la-Roche

I already told you about it, the Spa of La Cheneaudière is magnificent (click on the link to read the dedicated article). It has been awarded the prize for Best Hotel Spa in Europe as well as Best Relais & Châteaux Spa.)

When you book a room, access to the spa is offered from 3:30 p.m. on the day of arrival until 11 a.m. on the day of departure. The spa is open every day from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and the family pool area from 7 a.m.


The Hostellerie La Cheneaudière is located in Colroy-la-Roche, a small village situated at an altitude of about 500 meters. Colroy-la-Roche has the double advantage of being sufficiently remote to benefit from an extremely peaceful setting while being relatively accessible from Strasbourg (50 minutes) or Colmar (55 minutes). Ideal to spend a weekend in the green, in a true haven of peace surrounded by nature!
