The receptionists were both delightful but you do need to book parking or go to the chicest nearby underground car park. The building is old so you have to walk along various corridors to get to some rooms but it was not a problem. It is close to Chartres cathedral and the town is lovely. We found the evening meal...

We only had one night here on our way North but we had such an enjoyable experience that we fully intend to stay again. The staff were, all of them, very friendly, helpful and polite. Lovely big room and very comfortable bed with all you need in the room and bathroom. We ate in the Bistro and had a lovely... More

I am not a fan of Best Western in the UK. Had a number of very poor experiences. This hotel however was excellent value for money, in a great location. Often these old large hotels struggle with the standard of facilities. There are some areas of the hotel which are a bit shabby chic but the bedroom we were in... More

The hotel is extremely well located for the centre of Chartres, an easy stroll to the Cathedral. The bedroom was very big (unlike the lift, which could barely accommodate my suitcase!) and decorated in a style sympathetic to the history of the building. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. I haven't given it 5 stars because although it advertises... More

We thank you for sharing your opinion about our hotel on Trip Advisor. We are happy you enjoy your stay even if we are a 4 stars (and not 5!) hotel.

Situated in the historic centre of Chartres, this marvellous hotel is 'la belle époque' brought back to life. With every conceivable contemporary facility, including a superb spa, somehow its original grandeur has carefully been preserved and enhanced. Superior room had a wonderful view of the illuminated a spires of the cathedral, which is five minutes' walk away. Marvellous bar and... More

Well, if you are booking with Booking.com, be sure to avoid being given room 108. It is above the kitchen, and it is NOISY. I had to phone to reception at nearly 01.00 in the morning to ask when the noise was going to stop. Hey it started again at 06.00 am. The receptionist I spoke to wandered if I... More

A very pleasing hotel in many respects. The room (108) was comfortable & very well appointed, though its location is directly over the kitchen & the noise permeated through the floor until the early hours of the morning & re-started at six o'clock; this was made known during the booking out process & the staff indicated an intention to report...

Great place to stay in Chartres. Beautiful rooms with French warm climate. Very good restaurant, delicious meals and French vines... yummy! Very good location, near the centre of the town. Prices are quite good but payments for rooms could have been a little bit lower.

Nothing seemed too much trouble. And this hotel has the wow factor. Only a standard room, as far as I am aware, but how delightful. A wine glass waiting for us after our long journey. As the weather was cold and drizzly (we'd come up from the south) we decided to eat at the hotel. The lamb melted as I... More
