Pleasant hotel, next to a large shopping center. Little bit overpriced breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Francophile2013 OK but ....
Just to qualify my review - I paid for the stay with my HI Points.
Our stay was OK. I spoke to a frequent guest who said that a few months ago the hotel was in the middle of and looked like it was part of a building site. The worst of that is now over though there was still some internal refurbishment in progress when we were there. This was compensated for by an upgrade to a Business Room - which was nice. Bizarrely in my view, though it may be welcomed by some guests, the hotel is now surrounded by a Shopping Centre. It had only just opened on our second visit trams both to and from the hotel were packed. If that continues then getting from the hotel to the centre of Dijon will not be as comfortable and easy as it once was.
However, two things annoyed me about our stay. The first is that we were handed a slip of paper on check in, written in both French and English. We were then told that the cost of breakfast (17 Euros each) would be added to our bill unless we returned the slip at the time of checkout. Never before have I been charged for an optional service in advance and then had to prove that I had not taken it in order to obtain a refund. I'm not even sure that's legal.
The second was a lack of English speaking channels on the TV. I believe I am right in saying that there were only 2 - BBC World News and CNN, not much of a choice and not very relaxing after a long days drive. There were in excess of 20 French Channels - why not it a French hotel, but I'm sure that the hotel gets a significant number of English speaking guests and they should be better catered for.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cezanne To be avoided
Worse than August. Still a building site, car park is builders yard, limited parking for guests, mainly used by contractors.
Work now 6 months late and counting. Internet access still not improved. No recognition for Rewards club status, no offer of of upgrade.
To compensate for disruption a miniature jar of Dijon Mustard left in room, ours had been opened and half eaten, we threw it in the bin - this is taking the Mickey in spades.
Dishonest description on website, it still describes a future state which is clearly a long way off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JWSengland Looks are deceptive
Driving up to the Holiday Inn at the Toison d'Or in Dijon, we were taken aback at all the building work going on all around it... but this was really only superficial. The hotel itself is quite comfortable and as long as you don't need to sleep after 9 a.m. you won't hear any building noises.Those you may hear are not as bad as you might expect.
The hotel is ideally situated not far off the motorway, so easy to find and easy to leave Dijon when one has a ferry to catch (for example)! Just outside the front door there is a new and quiet tramway which quickly - and frequently - takes you into the heart of Dijon so that you don't have to worry about parking either. Remember to re-load your tram card: at the time of writing the fare for 2 adults into Dijon was €3.90 but a re-loaded card only cost €2.40. Pity that the swimming pool had not yet opened.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ajiolee Do not pay breakfast? Bed very bad
I was told that breakfast was included and the person when I did check in gave me a paper for that the surprise was when I did the check out they charged me 17 euros for a very dissapointing breakfast. I have never received a paper for a BF and then get charged for that.
For a brand new hotel the beds are horrible.

Stayed here a few times. Staff very friendly. Although hotel is outside the city centre, the new tram service makes the city very accessible.
Very impressive refurbishment carried out recently.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JEFFNB Hotel on a Building Site
This hotel is part of a major re-development of the complex at Toison D'or That has been going on for a couple of years. During the week it looks and sounds like the building site it is, with hammering, drilling, dust and noise. Starting before 8.oo am and finishing in the evening.
At weekends the noise stops, quiet returns although it still looks like a building site.
Once ALL the work is finished then this again will be a nice place to stay but not yet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveKaren Great stop over for the south of France
We picked this hotel for its location on our way to the South of France. Although still under going complete refurbishment we did not experience any problems. The room with 2 double beds was great for the family. As a platinum elite member we were extremely well looked after.
