The staff were friendly and spoke good English. The breakfast was plentiful and the room clean and comfy. The restaurant was being refurbished, so I didn't get a chance to use that, but it was characterful and looked very posh on opening night - just as I was leaving.

We are pleased that you appriciated your stay in our House. The restaurant is now opened with a new owner proposing a "Gastronomical Brasserie" in the old Churh of the Abbaye. The place is great for any catering formula as you could see. So I hope that you will come soon to discover the new restaurant. More

I've stayed here twice and was not disappointed. The abbey/hotel is comfortable, personnel friendly and helpful. The dining area is one of the better places to eat -- and the most attractive. Easy parking, close to town & cathedral. my highest recommendation. stayed here in 2012 ans 2013.

Stayed in this hotel for a week during business trip in Sep/Oct 14. The hotel building is converted from heritage structure nicely and is a good place to stay. It is close to railway station and walking distance from city center, cathedral and palace. The hotel staff is very cordial and helpful. Check-in is very smooth & fast. Breakfast spread... More

Splendid old building which is easy to find and has plenty of free, convenient parking. This is a massive advantage if you are driving between the UK and the South of France with your car full of stuff. The hotel is dog friendly and there is a lovely big park just across the road ideal for well behaved dogs after... More

Comfortable room, with tea coffee making ( shame about paper cups). Would expect more from a 4 star hotel. We did not eat in the hotel but had a comfortable over night stay, during our trip. Reception staff helpful and provided cheerful service.

We are pleased that you had a nice stay in our hotel. AS we already mentionned, the paper cups are an obligation from MERCURE HOTELS as we are franchised with this brand. Anyway, you can ask for Cina Cups during your stay. Hope to welcome you soon in Hotel de Bourbon More

To return to a hotel after a gap of 20-odd years and expect little or no change is unrealistic. The de Bourbon, now a Mercure hotel, is no exception; it was once a 17th century convent and its dining room, in the former magnificent chapel, one of the finest dining rooms one could hope to eat in. While, today, little... More

You are wright. this butyfull building has not followed the time evolution or not enough. I arrived last year in order to act on many points asked by the owner. I began by the gardens (the umbrellas are just a protection against birds as the terrase is under the trees), then I managed with technical problems before acting on refurbishment.... More

We stayed over night here on our way South like many others. After seeing a review from someone with a comfort room getting paper cups for coffee in the room I was disappointed to see we had the same in a standard room.

We stumbled on this hotel by accident for an overnight stop through France. The ambience was fantastic and the rooms were beautifully furnished as you would expect for a 4 star hotel. We had our evening meal in the restaurant, which I believe was once an old abbey. The gardens are lovely for sitting out with a book or drink.... More
