Le Parc des Marechaux
Ranked #4 of 21 Hotels in Auxerre
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 3, 2013

A pebbled path leads from the parking to the hotel door and then up a couple of steps to reception. This was not very convenient for someone arriving in heels with a large laptop bag and a suitcase, after a very long drive.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, also fluent in English.
The hotel is very well located within walking distance to the center of town.
I was given a corner room, facing a bit of parking area and the park. The room was charming in some ways but at the same time very dark.
The bathroom wasn't thouroughly cleaned as I found some strange hair here and there.
The big disappointment was a hand-held shower though.
The walls of the rooms are so thin, that I could hear my neighbour snoring.
Breakfast was good, but basic. Enough for me to eat to satisfy my tummy, but not enough for the price asked.
If I end up in Auxerre again, I might stay there again as it was nice, but I would probably rather be tempted to stay elsewhere instead.

We stayed here for one night on a Friday. The hotel is beautifully located just 5 min walk from the centre of Auxere. The staff were very friendly and the decor is great.

Unfortunately our standard double room was very dark and poky. There was no room and me and my husband were falling over each other. The bathroom needed an update and the shower is not fixed but over the bath so you have to hold it to shower...not great.

We ate at the hotel although there is no restaurant we had simple food in the bar. There wasn't much choice considering they advertise a full menu...a bit of a let down, however, what we ate was good.

Breakfast wasn't great. There was no warm option just continental. There wasn't much choice.

Overall I think this hotel is overbilled as a 4 star so a little overpriced.

We used this hotel as our base for exploring the local area. It is in easy walking distance of downtown Auxerre and has a free car park. The first room we were shown was very cramped so we asked for an upgrade which was much better. it was worth the higher price. The staff could not have been nicer and the hostess speaks perfect English. Since we were there in March, the hotel was pretty much empty but the breakfast was still ample and delicious.

Room Tip: It is worth paying a few Euros more for a larger room.

It is not a 4* hotel.
There’s nobody to help you with the bags.
The room is clean but very basic with no shelves or drawers to keep our clothes.
Breakfast was very basic too.
Bathroom only had a hand-held shower, making it impossible to wash ones hair.
We shortened our trip because this place did not meet our expectations.

Good location and access to Auxerre central. Delightful garden grounds. Appreciated free carparking. Room allocated was on third level overlooking rear garden. The room was very cramped with furnishings and no room for two suitcases. We had to move furniture to access our cases.Bathroom did not have a fixed shower over the bath let alone a separate shower. Towels provided (a good indicator of hotel standard) were pretty thin and small. While the lift (exceptionally jerky) displayed a dinner menu there is no restaurant. The helpful staff indicated available restaurants but feigned ignorance of Michelin mentioned establishments. The breakfast buffet was adequate but lacked any hot food generally expected of a 3 star hotel. Of 13 hotels stayed in over a 5 week touring holiday across Europe this was the disappointment. We have previously stayed in another hotel in Auxerre which was ranked lower by Tripadvisor. If staying in Auxerre a very interesting and delightful city again we will choose another hotel.

If you are traveling neat Auxerre, France, this lovely hotel is just right for an overnight or two.
The hotel is a renovated mansion in a pretty part of Auxerre, not far from downtown. Our room was very comfortable (spacious and beautifully decorated), and the breakfast was excellent. The hostess speaks English and is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would gladly return!

Room Tip: We were on the third floor in a room that overlooked the garden in back. I recommend a room that ov...

My wife and I have been travelling throughout Europe for the last five weeks and needed to stop somewhere for a night somewhere between Lyon, France and the Loire Valley. We took a gamble on the city of Auxerre which neither of us knew a great deal about. Our hotel for the night was Le Parc des Marechaux and in hindsight we are sorry we didn't spend more nights here instead of using it as stopover. The hotel was impeccable in every way. We were greeted warmly by the owner, there was free parking available for our hire car (not always the case in Europe) and the room was furnished with beautiful furniture and an extremely comfortable bed. We were a short stroll from the centre of town, Auxerre is quite small and easy to navigate, and the hotel was easy to find as we entered th city. The city itself is undergoing a transformation along the river and the work already completed indicates that this medieval city with cobblestoned streets is going to be picture perfect in the very near future. We though it was beautiful and wouldn't hesitate to return. If we do we will definitely stay at the Le Parc des Marechaux.
