“Good hotel, bad location”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The hotel is OK, with plenty of character (faux ostrich leather tiles in the bathroom!). However it is on a noisy road and its not an easy walk into town with no food close by (it was rainy too). It wasn't cheap enough to offset those drawbacks for me. The room was big, and the bathroom had no shower (which is not that uncommon). You can pay more for a room that has one. I wouldn't stay again and was disappointed given the high rating on TA.

Also, make sure you lock your door (they don't lock behind you). We declined breakfast but someone tried opening our door several times. I hope it was just a rude housekeeper.

We stayed here for two nights in September - we felt immediately welcome as soon as we walked through the door - our hostess was very charming and helpful. Our rooms were very comfortable and spotless. The bathroom was very modern but it was a shame there wasn't a shower curtain or door as the whole bathroom was wet even after a very careful shower! Apart from that it was a perfect location for a stop over, within easy reach of the town and its numerous restaurants. Good value for money.

Stopped at hotel Grillon for 1 night on our way down to the South of France, it did exactly what was billed. The room was comfortable, clean and of reasonable size. The bathroom was large, however missed a shower (not uncommon in French hotels I may add).

Its location is only a short walk into Beaune itself and isn't a challenge. The hotel's location is actually perfect for those wishing to make a swift exit in the morning to the main motorway (not that you can hear the motorway i'm quick to add).

Breakfast was reasonable - not amazing but it did the job.

To sum up - it didn't set my world alight but ticked the box for a place to rest your head en-route to somewhere.

We regularly stop for a night in Beaune on our way to and from the south. Prompted by the euphoric reviews on TA, we decided to try the Hotel Grillon. Our room in the modern annexe was large and spotless, with a good bed. However, to our taste the room was garish and very unattractive. breakfast was OK but the breakfast area in a glazed extension was "tacky Tyrolean" in style.
Overall the place is clean and works, but at 157€ for two including breakfast is not particularly good value.
What puzzles me is why, having chosen to visit such a beautiful old town, anybody would chose to stay in an unattractive suburb!

We only discovered The Grillon a month ago but have already stayed here twice, in different rooms. Monsieur & Madame Grillon make you very welcome in their home which is a haven of peace. From the Zen garden to the tastefully appointed, spotlessly clean bedrooms and immaculate bathrooms, there is great attention to detail. The beds are extremely comfortable and conducive to a good night's sleep. Breakfast is a tasty buffet served either on the terrace or in the breakfast room. All in all a wonderful place for either a stop over or to linger longer and enjoy the delights of Beaune itself.

We stayed in this beautiful hotel in Beaune on our way down to the south of France and it was exactly what we needed, gorgeous room (we stayed in the lightbulb room!), close to town, perfect pool to cool off in and great breakfast on terrace. We had a great wine tasting and meal in town and came back for a swim and some more wine which our host delivered to us on a tray in the garden with some nibbly biscuits - a lovely extra touch.

We have stayes at Hotel Grillon for more than 30 years because we liked to spend a night in a very nice and quiet hotel after our long journey from and to the côte d'Azur. We were never disapointed.
The rooms are clean and we loved the breakfast. The receptionist (the owner) is always friendly and helpfull. There aren't any campers, any noise or picnickers and diert. We were there many times with our poodle Robert. Rob liked the Grillan as we do.
