The hotel is quite grand lookimg from the outside and is well located at the foot of the shopping street up through Vezelay to the Basilica. Inside the hotel feels as if it's seen better days. For instance half the bulbs in the lights in the "Restaurant Gastronomique" were missing or not working! There is a pleasant terrace at the... More

We spent two nights in room 303 facing the back of the hotel and the lovely countryside to the west of Vezelay. Our room was spacious enough. I had to ask for hair dryer from the helpful staff. Bathroom was enormous. It was nice being in the town in the morning before the tourists arrive and in the evening after... More

Large and confortable bed. Spacious bathroom . Clean. Old style furniture. No hair dryer, no safe in room. Just a shampoo mini bottle, mini soap, shower cap. Bring your own. Had dinner at their Gastronomic restaurant. Was fine. Strict minimum for a buffet breakfast. Friendly personnel . Excellent location of the hotel .

We spent the night in Vézelay after driving from Beaune. The hotel is very well run and the staff were very courteous. As others have remarked, it does host some group travelers; as this is probably the only hotel of any size in the town this is probably inevitable. However, we were in a lovely room on the first floor... More

Had a three night stay. Great location, nice and clean room. On the downside: too expensive, both hotel and restaurant. Restaurant prices are in Michelin one star region. Across the street you can eat at the same level for half the price. Wines too are overpriced.

Oh dear, I just read the review below. We were amongst the coach trippers and had a great stay at the Hotel de Poste. No idea why the restaurant was full as we were fed downstairs in a conference room. Hotel is clean, views are great and staff a fine. The downside is that the bar is very pricey and... More

Booked through a tour so can't comment on price. The view was amazing and the room was nice; however, it didn't have a shower, just a bathtub with hand attachment so required some gymnastics to get clean. The air conditioner (while I'm grateful that there was one!!) made randomly spaced loud noises, concentrated between 1 and 1:30am, which was annoying.... More

The best part of this hotel was the view from the room. At checkin the hotel clerk pressured us to make a reservation in the hotel's dining room at the risk of not getting a table. We didn't even wish to dine there. The room was very dated and had a bad smell. The bathroom was basic with sad lighting.... More

We booked this hotel through Booking.com and so did not feel it was overpriced. The rooms are very charming & all have really nice views. The breakfast room is wonderful and I especially like the older part of the hotel with its wooden staircase. But the updates are nice, too--the elevator, the bar & tea area was nice for a... More
