We stayed here beginning of September. Like the previous reviewer we found our welcome lacking. We arrived after a long journey from UK around 6pm. We were shown to our room which overlooked I don't know what. Small outdoor space? We were not offered any form of refreshment nor was there any complimentary water etc., provided in the room. We had to go out of the hotel to a small bar across the road where the owner was just packing up the chairs. We were told that we had the last available room (booked about ten days prior). This contained two queen sized beds, so low your knees were under your chin when sitting on the edge. The sheets were grey and the bedding was generally uninviting. Our door was next to the janitor's cupboard and she kindly woke us early crashing about in the buckets etc. There was no disappointment in the restaurant however. The food was superb. We chose the menu to include the appropriate wines and it was worth the wait. Our table was right in front of the open french windows right on to the river and the sunset was amazing! The experience was only spoilt by the loud chat of the two elderly English couples at an ajacent table who thought we all needed to know about their lives.
Breakfast was disappointing after the quality of the dinner. Quite basic. Some fresh fruit salad would have been lovely and some REAL orange juice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Chaîne d’Or gets her name from the history of the 18 th century, when the house was considered as a toll house. A large chain was crossing the Seine river between the rives and the island. Each boat that wanted to cross the river from La Havre to Paris had to pay a toll. The king was getting so much money from this toll, that people were telling that it was a “golden chain”. La Chaine d’Or has been successively an auberge, an hotel, and a coffee shop, just in front of the church, where men were meeting while their wifes were in the church.After world war 2nd, the Boirel family proposed a traditionnal cuisine, which was very appreciated from the local guests. Monsieur Boutineau went on with this tradition. Several years later, Monsieur et Madame Foucault, as new owners, decided to propose a gastronomic restaurant and with the help of the Chef, Monsieur Chevalliez, they obtained a Star from the famous Michelin Guide.When the chef left to buy his own restaurant, Madame Foucault sold la Chaîne d’Or which had a difficult time for a while.Today, Stephanie and Olivier Bicot, their team and the Chef Philippe Lallier are very proud to welcome you and to share their passion for the French gastronomy. ... more less
