“A Chambre d'Hote and not an hotel”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Firstly this is not an hotel but a Chambre d'hote and a very good one, being positioned on the outer edge of the city in a beautiful and private position with all facilities within very easy walking distance.
The owners were utterly charming and helpful and breakfasts were fresh and plentiful. We considered our choice of accommodation to be a stroke of good fortune.
The directions need to be finer tuned and be more specific about the precise location and entrance. Once any part if the directions are missed, the remaining directions are rendered pretty useless. It took us over an hour to find the place, eventually resorting to parking our car and walking in order to find it.
Once found it was a joy.

Situated on the same street as Hospice DeBeaune, this B&B was just perfect for touring the local sites. The room which was located in separate quest quarters offers privacy from the main house, our hosts greeted us each morning with a delicious breakfast. While speaking only a little english and we speaking almost no french, we were still able to communicate enough to enjoy the conversation and company. The property is gorgeous and we took advantage of the nice weather and outdoor furniture to sit and have a before dinner glass of wine. Our hosts also recommended BLVD 21 restaurant for dinner which was one of the best meals we had in France.
A perfect stay with L'Octroi Saint Jacques for sure.

We last stayed here 3 years ago in Room Hortensia - a lovely room in ? converted stables but this time were given a room in the main house which was even better! Salva and Jocelyn are excellent friendly hosts with enough English so we could be understood but also very keen for us to practise our rusty French. Location great on ramparts and parking on site. We hired bikes for 3 days from place near station on Rue Septembre - again VERY helpful with advice for rides and restaurants. Tres Bon!

What a perfect place to stay in Beaune. We stayed six nights in this beautifully decorated B&B. Upon checkin we were given an upgrade to the upper suite which is spacious. Jocelyn and Salva were the perfect hosts, providing delicious breakfasts, a wine-tasting, and enjoyable conversations...all in French. The gardens are lovingly cultivated, and the inn's location couldn't be better: close to everything in the old town and surprisingly quiet. It is only a 15-minute walk from the train station. If you have a car, there is plenty of room within the gated property. We met guests from France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the USA, and all loved the inn. We will return someday.

With only 3 rooms, we were so fortunate to stay with Jocelyn and Salva. They are quite possibly the nicest people I've met in France and you can tell that they really enjoy inn-keeping and are very proud of their establishment. Rightly so. For the 2 of us, we stayed in the upper suite that had room for a family of 4. The decorations are lovely, and the bathroom was one that I envy to have in my own home. Despite a few technical glitches (like the city turning off the water all night and that it was so hot outside (36C) that the airco couldn't keep up), we truly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect with several great restaurants literally across the street and very close to the center of Beaune. Yes...beware of Salva's 'shot' at breakfast.

Room Tip: If its hot outside, ask for a bottom floor room. Its smaller, but cooler.

The owners of this B&B were wonderful! They even helped our son with his French homework project! Fantastic location. Our suite for 3 on the upper floor was spacious, clean and well appointed. Would highly recommend.

We were originally booked in to another chamber d'hôte but due to a complication with the booking we were re-located here. The setting is stunning, 2 minutes from the centre of Beaune, and the owners are very friendly. Although the room was on a main road we couldn't hear anything at all and slept really well in a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was really good with a wide variety of food including viennoiserie, salami, freshly made pancakes. We had a bit of a cold and were offered some Marc de Bourgogne (similar to Grappa/Cognac) at 8:45 in the morning which went down very well thank you!

Room Tip: Central location, v quiet, well appointed rooms
