The room was comfortable and well appointed. All the rooms have been modernized although the hotel itself has a traditional layout. It is deservedly one of the top hotels in Chartes. The only drawback was that the Michelin starred restaurant was fully booked when we tried to make a reservation on arrival. Next time we will book the restaurant at... More

We travel regularly between the South and North of France, and we take always the opportunity to make a stopover in the many towns and villages on the west side of Paris, in the large Normandy area. More often than not, we like to stay in Chartres, and this hotel is excellent value. It is located in the heart of... More

My adult daughter and myself were doing a road trip throughout France in September and visited Chartres in September. Our trip was haphazard taking us where we wanted to go so therefore did not book hotels. We arrived in Chartres and all the 'normal' rooms were booked but the hotel offered us a Junior Suite at an amazing rate. They... More

Le Grand Monarque was a lovely hotel (with a Michelin starred restaurant), abutting the upper part of the old town. It is a very short work to the Cathedral. Our room was extremely spacious by European standards. It was quiet and clean. And it has some charm. The staff were incredibly nice and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this hotel... More

I'm lucky (unlucky?) enough to travel a lot for business and as a result I stay in a wide range of hotels from seriously horrible cheap and dirty places to amazing and luxurious resorts (but only when they have great deals) - La Grand Monarque is one of my all time favourites. It combines fantastic service (everyone at the hotel... More

Our first stop on a tour round France - and what a find. Firstly the hotel stay could not do enough for us. Took the car to a very secure car park, made sure rooms were next to each other (family rooms but there are 6 of us). Took the time to explain the town and the evening event that... More

We loved our last hotel!! Such a great location to Chartres!! We got to see the light show at night and the hotel staff was so accommodating. They were quite helpful. Our room was good, not large but quite comfortable. The breakfast was a good value and not too expensive. Stay here and go see the magnificent cathedral!!!

Generous upgrade from the category below to a lovely suite on the 3rd floor. Catherine de Medici. It was an oasis from the 38C Chartres was experiencing during our stay. Air con worked very well indeed. The suite was huge,very quiet and extremely comfortable, decorated with humour and we loved it. ( Okay we wouldn't have chosen the black furniture... More

This hotel is as good as the savoy or the Ritz in places! As part of my job I get to go to incredible hotels and restaurants but was with my family and had heard good things of this hotel. It exceeded them in parts. It was overall a delight to stay here. We had had a delayed crossing from... More
