“Adorable historic hotel with excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

We have stayed here twice and twice were not disappointed. What I can add to the other glowing reviews? The service is fantastic and extremely thorough, and makes a huge difference when comparing this hotel to others. Yes, the rooms are not super-modern, but that is part of the charm. The breakfast is EXTREMELY delicious and always features a copious selection of fresh cheeses -- nothing like starting your day in Burgundy with a good serving of Delices de Pommard or Aisy Cendre. I can't wait to return.

We stayed two nights at le Cep and absolutely loved it. The room, the bath, the breakfast, and the courtyards are most appealing, and the location is wonderful. Many restaurants and shops are close by within easy walking distance of only a block or two. Yes our room decor was dark woodwork and red/gold fabrics but we loved the room and everything about the hotel. A very warm, rich, and classic hotel. We will certainly stay there again on our next visit to Beaune.

We were satisfied but not impressed. The staff is friendly, delivering minimum service ("here is a map with restaurants on it"). The rooms are clean and charming but certainly not everone's taste. I would have appreciated to be asked if it is ok to have a completely open bathroom in the bed room, check out upfront what kind of a room you get. Small détails were certainly not luxury like the cheap soap dispenser. Breakfast is ok, but from a choice and quality perspective far away from luxury standards. Situation is perfect downtown. Do not count on the fitness: extremly small, dirty, bad equipment. In my eyes this place is not worth the money.

I have stayed at the Hotel Cep several times and each time is better than the last. The staff are charming and helpful. The location is ideal. The hotel has a special, old-fashioned charm that is all its own and is the polar opposite of a modern chain hotel. For me it is perfect, and I hope I will stay there again soon.

We stayed in Hotel le Cep for three nights and thought it was great. Unfortunately, we didn't get to eat in their restaurant as it was full on the Saturday night when we arrived, and closed on Sunday and Monday. The hotel is a mixture of beautiful antique furniture in dark woods and red upholstery, and modern vibrant furnishings and colours. Their are two lounge areas, and a bar with sofas and seating in at the back of the reception area, which sounds a little strange, but it works. There is also seating outside, where you can also eat breakfast on sunnier days. Breakfast is served until a highly respectable 11am! The staff were very good. They were very friendly, approachable, professional and incredibly helpful. The hotel is centrally based so the shops, restaurants and bars are extremely accessible. I would highly recommend Hotel le Cep, and if we find ourselves that way again it will be the only hotel we would stay at.

On a recent trip to France, I had the opportunity to stay 2 nights at Hotel Le Cep. The hotel is in a great location, with easy walking to the city center within the original walled city. Shops and restaurants are plentiful. If you are in town on a Saturday morning, the market is a must see.
The hotel staff was welcoming and accommodating. We received an upgrade on our room to a very spacious suite which was decorated in true French décor. The bed was very comfortable. It would have been helpful to have more power outlets for charging cameras, phones etc. The hotel is very clean and well kept. We especially enjoyed the various courtyards which were maintained in an excellent manner.
I do not hesitate to recommend the hotel due to its location, staff, service and well run business. You will certainly enjoy your stay

We've stayed at le Cep on 3 other trips and always found it a good value. When we arrived in July 2014 for a 2 night stay we expected the usual good service and comfortable room. But we got great service and a wonderful room. The lounge seemed even better than usual and the drinks were perfect. The courtyard was even better than our last breakfast and we enjoyed generous and delicious breakfasts there. So, our congratulations to whomever manages le Cep -- you've kept an old property elegant and fresh. We look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Every room we've had has been good but that over the courtyard was excellent.
