We stayed here during our visit to Chartres. The hotel is in a nice historic building just across the street from the historic center. The room was quite large but the bathroom was embarrassingly small, especially the separate room for the WC. There was no curtain for the shower!

This proved to be a great choice - on the edge of the town centre, private secure parking (needs to be booked in advance), comfortable and friendly. Restaurant good, breakfast excellent, bed comfortable. Air conditioning and tea/coffee making facilities in room.

We had two rooms in this grand old hotel, one for a family of three, one for a couple. Our son's room was on the front of the hotel, very large accommodating a king size double bed plus a large double bed settee. It had a beautiful fireplace and views over the square. Our bedroom at the side of the... More

Stayed here for one night on our way south. About 3.5 hrs from Calais so an ideal location for getting a great way into France from the UK. Hotel accommodation and service were fantastic. Good central location for the town and just 10 mins from the cathedral. The light show in the town is also brilliant. Prebook parking if you... More

We were blown away by this beautiful hotel. The word is really "grandiose". The building is majestic with so much history behind it. The rooms are modern and very comfortable. Quite large for European standards. The bedding was super comfortable and we had a good night sleep. When we first arrived, the concierge took our car and parked it for... More

Excellent classic hotel, with a perfect location for central chartres. Would class as a 4* hotel, with the hotel quality itself being part of the appeal, and definitely posher than our typical 3* Ibis and mid range hotel choices - and it showed throughout the hotel. At the top end of the 'best western' chain from my experience. Hotel is... More

This hotel is really lovely. Old fashioned charm and glamour right in the centre of Chartres. We had a room at the front which was a little noisy be sure to ask for a quiet room. Room was spacious and bathroom a good size. It is in one of the central squares and you can walk easily to see all... More

We arrived mid afternoon after a fairly long drive and immediately the staff fell over themselves to help. The car was whisked away to be parked, reception checked us in immediately to a lovely room, far better than we were expecting in a standard double and fir a very reasonable price. The lady on reception took some time to explain... More

There are some pros- great location, comfy beds, opening window with a small balcony And some cons - rabbit warren of corridors, delusions of grandeur, small room,twin beds that are pushed together (what is the point of this- if you don't want to sleep together, you don't want to sleep together), aircon/heater noisy but can be turned off, decor is...

Stayed here for one night on our way back from a vacation in Bordeaux. Nice hotel in an old building, apparently there's been a hotel on this site since the 17th century. Our room was smallish, but not so small as to be a problem, and the bathroom was large with his & hers basins and a capacious shower. Some... More
