We stayed here on our way back from our holiday in the South of France. Beautiful hotel with lovely grounds. Plenty of on site parking. Friendly staff and nice room. Our only gripe is that the restaurant was closed on the day we arrived, Monday. Hard to believe a hotel has no restaurant open for guests. Breakfast was excellent and... More

Just like when we stayed here last year, the "Privilege" room in this hotel was disappointing. The seating area and furniture were all tired. The toilet was a huge surprise - streaks of limescale down the pan and in the bottom leaving an unpleasant colouring. (I am not saying it was dirty, but limescale is easy to remove and it... More

We stayed on our way from South of France back to England. This is lovely hotel. with a very welcoming reception, all of whom speak English. We had a very nice room with plenty of space. Breakfast the following morning was excellent. What more could you want !!

Bourges, right in the centre of France, is worth a visit, particularly if you stay at Hotel de Bourbon. It's housed in an elegant old convent, beautifully converted and staffed by the most charming and helpful young people. Eat (very well!) in the attached restaurant in the semi-ruined and imaginatively reconstucted convent chapel. An overnight here is an experience in... More

From previous reviews we knew that this hotel was regarded as rather shabby and tired and so our expectations were lower than say our very positive experience of the Accor Hotel in Chatres. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable (even if the quirky roof line made access difficult to some parts) but the bathroom was of a poor standard and... More

Room sizes are typical for Europe, very clean and modern. Centrally located for easy access to places of interest by foot. The town is shut down on Sunday and Monday which happened to be my days off during this business trip. The hotel bar was open and had 2 tapas selections. Staff was very helpful and courteous, the hotel restaurant... More

We arrived at this hotel after a 6 hour drive and were offered no assistance with our bags or finding our room. This is in contrast to every other hotel or guest house we have stayed in in France where the host has always offered assistance. The room is OK. But the worst part is that for a Mercure hotel,...

5th stay at this hotel. Booked a standard room this time (previously had a superior room). A little smaller but adequate size. Room had a shower enclosure (which we prefer) rather than a shower over bath. Easy to check in/out. Rooms have minibar and a mini safe. Will be staying here again. Restaurant (in form of a brasserie) is independent... More

A great place to stay on the way from the North of France when heading to the Languedoc. We were greeted with a beautiful converted monastery in great surroundings and plenty of secure parking. It is better to ask for a larger room as the space is enormous. The Restaurant would seem to be the old Chapel which has been... More
