We chose this hotel based on the good reviews on trip advisor and it lived up to its reputation. It's quirky and a bit of a maze, but this really adds to the fun of it! We had a lovely modern room which was quiet and with a very comfy bed. The hotel communal areas are beautiful and breakfast was... More

This was my second visit to this hotel while en route to the south of France and I love staying here. It has the gel of a special hotel. The rooms are beautifully furnished with the most comfortable beds, and the breakfast buffet is the best I have ever had: so much choice of so many delicious things. Last year... More

Chartres was our preferred stop on our way to South Brittany. It is a lovely city, well renovated and still keeping the character of the old town. The hotel is very centrally located and only a short walk to all monuments. The reception was very friendly, they had a valet to park the car in their private lot. We had... More

Chartres is a lovely town worth a visit. This hotel is on the main plaza and at the center of everything - tourist sites, restaurants, and shops. It was a former post office so is not the typical layout, but has been very nicely renovated. We stayed in the garden suite and it was lovely. Very spacious and a patio... More

The hotel struck me more as a dowager empress than a grand monarch - aged, but nicely, and working hard like Lady Violet to stay "with it." Our superior-class room was big, with a sitting area and a fireplace, and nicely period-decorated. A new elevator had just been installed, but the tiny ancient one was still working. Service was impeccable... More

Our room was small and had a poor view, the decor needs updating for the price that you are expected to pay. There was an awful sewage smell in the corridors during the morning, which you could smell in the breakfast area. I have tried to take into account the current poor exchange rate of 1.17 when considering value for... More

We stopped over at Le Grand Monarque on our way back to the UK and we were so glad we did - what a fantastic experience! Our room was enormous and more like a suite with a lounge area which was perfect for our 11 year old to sleep in later whilst we had the biggest bed ever seen with... More

A nice looking establishment marred by high costs and poor service. The room was decent enough if a little old. However, we had to pay €15 per person per day for the Spa - it should always be included for hotel guests! Worse, we went downstairs to eat and were told that the restaurant was fully booking in a rather... More

We stopped in Chartres for 2 nights and originally chose this hotel as it provided secured parking. On arrival, we were shown where to park temporarily whilst our bags were taken in. The concierge then removed our car to the secure car park. The check-in process was painless and the hotel itself is smart and all the staff were very... More

We spent one night here en route south. We arrived really really late at night and were were kindly shown in by the night person. We had two rooms next door to each other. One room was very small but was for our two children so it was fine. they left a few sweets for them which was a nice... More
