“Basic room, but very nice property!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, actually so much that we decided to stay an extra night. The rooms were very basic, bare-bones, so to speak, but the common areas and garden were pretty and cozy. We found the staff friendly. They corked a bottle of wine we that had bought and gave us dishes and utensils to eat a picnic lunch on the patio, which we had purchased at the local Saturday Market. Overall, it was fairly comfortable and clean, and a very good value. The only thing I didn't like is that they did not tell us the price for breakfast until we checked out. It was good, but I don't think we would have paid $25 (USD for two) for breakfast all three days had we known. That was a surprise at checkout, so we'll ask first next time (note that in the U.S. free continental breakfast is very common, but they don't usually provide fresh garden picked figs either).

We arrived in Beaune after a long day riding our motorcycles through France. All the larger chains in the town centre were fully booked with coach parties, so we widened our search and came across this Hotel. Upon check in, the young lady attending reception was extremely pleasant, helpful, and showed us 3 types of room we could choose from. She also provided recommendations for dinner, and made us feel extremely welcome.
We were able to park our motorbikes securely in the private courtyard area at the back, and opted to pay for one of the duplex suites, with a loft room upstairs and comfortable living area downstairs (just perfect for biking luggage). The room was clean, well presented and essentially good value for money. The walk into the historic town only took 5 minutes.
The only downside to this hotel was during check out. I was greeted in the morning by an extremely aggressive lady, who if she had been there at check in, would have seen me walk away. She was both rude and arrogant, and would unfortunately stop me going back there on future travels, and if she is a member of staff, and not the owner as suggested in other reviews, should be fired immediately as she will do the business no favours at all. A shame, as until checkout I thought we had found a gem of a hotel.
If you arrive and the friendly young lady is attendign reception then go ahead and stay..otherwise, be on your guard.

The manageress runs this place like a prison camp walking around with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth looking for trouble. Don't treat this place like your home she barks, you may not wash clothes in you room or sunbathe on the sun loungers unless fully clothed and if you have paid extra to take your dog it must be on a leash at all times and either in your car (very sensible in August only if you want a dead dog) or locked in the room . The breakfast is a rip off and only 1 croissant permitted per person or else! and yes extra Euros for a tiny glass of orange juice. The room next to us had broken air-conditioning and a filthy bathroom according to our neighbours. It is badly in need of a renovation and what's the point of a charming garden if the manageress wont let you enjoy it. The owners should employ a new manager to re-invigoratate this stuffy and unwelcoming establishment the current one demands respect but gives her Clients none, she manipulates her staff to cause arguments and ensures that gates and reception are locked at 8.30 so don't be back late or dare to have a good time on your holiday. And be prepared to be kept up late and woken up early by people arriving leaving the hotel car-park, conveniently located in the middle of hotel adjoining what otherwise would be a tranquil garden. Boo to Hotel Bretonniere find somewhere else to stay where the staff are accommodating and friendly, there are plenty of others to choose from.

We stayed here in their duplex addition, which had a living area below with a pullout bed and bathroom and loft bedroom upstairs. The room was spacious, the beds were comfortable (although a bit firm) and the bathroom was large. The gardens and flowers gave the hotel a nice ambiance and there was plenty of parking. Location was good, less than a 5 minute walk into town. A good value for the money. Also, the hotel was able to suggest a nice restaurant, Arome d'Italie, which had very nice Italian food if one is looking for something other than the regional cuisine. (Wifi Internet is available for 5 euros for 2 days)

We stayed at the Hostellerie de Bretonniere for two nights, and found it comfortable and affordable. It is just outside of the old town's perimeter road, so the walk to sites like Hotel Dieu is very quick and easy.

After a long day of traveling, flight delays, and losing our luggage, we arrived late to the hotel. The staff was friendly, spoke decent English, and checked us in quickly, giving us a couple of recommendations for a good dinner, as well.

Our room was small, but comfortable. For 55 Euro, we had two beds pushed together, a clean bath with a towel warming rack (great in the cold Burgundian winters!), and a TV with French and German stations, CNN, and BBC. It was perfect for getting over our jet lag, and warming up after sightseeing. Very adequate heat, which wasn't the case everywhere we went in Burgundy. We were very pleased with the room, especially for the price.

We didn't try very hard, but weren't able to get the wifi to work. Additionally, we chose to take our fellow travelers' advice and skip the hotel breakfast (6 Euro). We popped over to a local cafe for our breakfast each morning, and saved the money for more wine at dinner. The parking was free, secure, and very close to our room, which was a definite bonus.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend this to a traveler who's looking for a clean, comfy, well-located room at a great price.

This hotel was adequate for our one night stay, altough with 5 of us crammed into one room (2 double beds and a single bed), it was a tight fit. The actual room is decorated nicely with a very nice and modern bathroom, however the bed linens and towels were old and pillows were terribly uncomfortable. The room was very musty smelling. There was no fridge or tea/coffee making facilities, and the TV was very small, although did have English speaking channels. The breakfast was a nice continental breakfast, but be warned the orange juice cost 2 euros each for a tiny glass, and this is not mentioned until you go to pay your bill. The service however is exceptionally friendly and warm. Beaune itself is a gorgeous village and full of beautiful shops selling amazing foods and wines. The hotel is a short walk from the centre of Beaune.

After driving round Beaune for an hour, we chose this hotel from a list given to us by the Tourist Office. The location was excellent, just a few minutes walk from the town centre and one of the cheaper hotels in the town, but unfortunately our room was the one closest to the road and the gates. The hotel is laid out a bit like and American motel, so some of the rooms are right on the driveway. Great for taking your suitcases in from the car but all night we were kept awake by traffic from the road and the opening and closing of the electronic gates which were right outside our window and closed after 10pm. Anyone coming in or leaving after that time had to press a buzzer and the gates would squeak open. I don't know where all these people were going to at 3am, but there was a steady stream of them opening and closing the gates....

Our room was clean, but very stuffy - we couldn't open the window because of the noise. Even for the cheapest room left (59 euros) I would not recommend this one, based on the noise. The bathroom was OK, a bit shabby and mouldy as someone else has commented on here, a couple of thin towels are provided. Bed was OK. We could hear the neighbouring room's occupants very clearly though as the walls were pretty thin, but they shut up at 10pm so that was fine.

The staff were friendly and helpful, and we had a nice drink in the bar under the trees before our dinner, but my main criteria for a hotel room revolve around getting a good night's sleep, and this one did not meet it. Perhaps the other rooms away from the road and gates are quieter, but I can only speak from our experience. Therefore I'm afraid I have to say I could not recommend the hotel to a friend.

Beaune itself was very pretty, but compared to other areas of France we had just visited was quite pricey, and the particular restaurant we visited over priced for the food. I could have made a better coq au vin myself, and we were charged 16 euros for it. I dislike paying a lot of money for food in a restaurant that I can make better myself. Breakfast at the hotel was about 7 euros, so we found a cafe down the road out of the town which was better value. Parking is free, and they take credit cards.
