An ideal French experience, from the charming reception, to an excellent lunch and a bright, clean and well appointed room. My only dissapointment was that work preparing a local farm for a technical trial kept me away from the restaurant and any other food that evening. I will however make a point of staying and eating here again soon. The... More

Yet again another excellent but short stay. As usual we received a warm welcome and we look forward to our next visit. The restaurant meals and service are exceptional and we always enjoy dining with friends at Le Grand Monarque. Thank you Anne-Marie and Marc.

We had a very warm welcome from the staff, who couldn't have been more helpful. The room was very clean, and beautifully decorated and I liked the feature of one stone wall left uncovered in this very old building. There is free WiFi. The restaurant had a very French ambiance. Again, the staff were helpful and attentive without being overbearing.... More

We chose the hotel from its good english descriptions of the hotel and restaurant. The restaurant was good value for money. Not expensive and good quality. The waiter profoundly professional, very polite and a nice person altogether. The hotel is run by a married couple with M. Mercier in the kitchen and Mme. Mercier running the hotel. We stayed from...

This hotel has recently been taken over by a young French couple, Anne-Marie & Marc, who appart from making their guests feel most welcome are making a real effort to restore this 16th centuary coaching house to its former glory. The hotel is situated in the little known village of Donzy in the Nièvre district in the heart of the... More
