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. This is a 4 star hotel and as they had left a selection of wine and drinking... More

Dear Madam, I understand that you would be desappointed by the paper cups in the rooms. We are franchised with MERCURE Hotels and this is an obligation from MERCURE. Anyway, I agree with you and I prefer China Cups. Best regards Thierry PUYFAGES More

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

Just back from our 3rd stopover this year in Bourges on our return journey to the UK from the South. The hotel is easy to find, has good secure parking and a lovely garden to the front where you can enjoy a nice glass of wine on arrival. It's also opposite some beautiful gardens which we unfortunately have never had... More

Developed from an old abbey, a modern hotel that is comfortable and in a good location. There is a common room and outdoor court available for relaxing. Many restaurants and cafés are within walking distance to the centre ville. There is also a fine restaurant on site but we didn't take advantage of it.

This hotel in the centre of Bourges is lovely - up to a point! The reception, bar and garden all live up to the 4 star status and the beautiful restaurant and quality of food surpasses it (albeit a bit formal). However our initial room was small, dark and decidedly shabby - one small pillow each, very cramped and only... More

In fact you were in a "standard" room and not "Comfort" room at arrival and you've been upgraded to a "comfort" room. In standard rooms (smaller) there's one pillow on the bed per person and two extra pillows in the dressing. regarding the paper cup, we only had "China Cup" untill Mercure decided to change to the paper cup.

So our first night and we immediately questioned its 4 star status. As a family of four including two children aged 10 and 8 we arrived at 915 pm after a nightmare 11 hour drive from Nice.

The restaurant was fully booked with no table available and no solution in the hotel. Regarding the breakfast service of the sunday morning, our... More
