Nice hotel, clean with large bathroom. Breakfast was good, not exceptional. Centrally located in a lovely little area. Lots of shops in market in Square during the day. Walking distance to palace of Versailles. Lots of good restaurants nearby.

The location is superb; the staff helpful. Rooms were okay, though our carpet had a couple of stains. Otherwise very clean. Lots of free parking, and a great price. Lots of restaurants, and the Chateau, are nearby. Watch out for Sundays when the one-way approach road is closed to traffic (back up the other wrong-way one-way street). The biggest drawbacks:...

The rooms are very small but comfortable. Everything you need is there. When we discovered we had left a pair of shoes behind they were kind enough to package them up and mail them back to us. The only change was the postage. The rating would have been five stars but the internet didn't always work.

We chose this hotel for the included secure parking and good location to the palace. Both of which made a visit very convenient. We were pleasantly surprised by our big room, it was nice to spread out after small hotel rooms. The room itself was comfortable, but the breakfast was below average - definitely room for improvement. Self cater or... More

We stayed on the1st floor (2nd in the USA) in a double room overlooking the secure car park. Very comfortable beds, fresh linens, pillows and towels. Room size adequate for the 3 of us. Good size bathroom with shower over tub. Furniture and bathroom a bit dated but clean and that's what matters to us. Yes, the floors squeaked but... More

Friends recommended the sturdy, traditional Cheval Rouge for its convenience to the château and train station. I found the staff friendly and they really do go out of their way to be helpful, such as the gentleman minding the breakfast buffet who found me a good-sized glass for my orange juice instead of the thimbles they had out. The room... More

Traditional French hotel in the centre of Versailles. Friendly service, clean rooms, secure car park and all at a bargain value. I've stayed there several times, and the trick is to book well in advance as the secret's out regarding this hotel - especially when you can pay twice at chain hotels in the city, and get half the experience.

This hotel is convenient to the palace and in the midst of a plethora of restaurants. It's on the same square as the outdoor market, itself a treat. Our room, above one of the original 1600's stable stalls was long and narrow and minimally decorated, but the bed was comfortable. Our room had two double beds, so for once had... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to comment on our hotel. We are constantly undergoing redecorations as we have had several comments on the lack of colourfulness in our rooms.

This hotel is middle of the road - nothing startling. Pluses: (1) Hotel staff go out of their way to be helpful (2) location on the market place, with lots of restaurants nearby and plenty of atmosphere Negatives: (1) rooms and furnishing are basic (2) the bathrooms are very small
