“Enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We stayed at the Grillon on our last trip to France? The owners and staff could not have been more accommodating. We enjoyed our breakfast each morning. The only down side is the location.We did not have a car so we walked each day to the city center at least twice a day.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor.

We have stayed at the Hotel Grillon at least once a year (more often twice) for at least 10 years and thoroughly enjoy the experience every time. The proprietors could not be more welcoming and are always interested in what we have done or have planned and still offer some new ideas for us. Breakfast is substantial with the biggest croissants we have ever seen and plenty of bread. For those who want eggs, meat or cheese that's available too. The rooms are spacious as are the bathrooms and always spotless. We enjoy the walk into Beaune on an evening (it's about 15 minutes level walking) as this helps to build up an appetite and the walk back helps to settle what is always a good meal and bottle of burgundy. We came here with our two sons and daughters in law for our 30th wedding anniversary so we would be happy to recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: All the rooms we have stayed in have been equally good

The Hotel Grillon occupies a prime spot in the no-man's land that surrounds so many French cities. It nestles in amongst the supermarkets, econo-hotels, and light industry about1.5km from the centre of Beaune. As other reviewers have noted, it's not particularly noisy or unsafe, it's just not very convenient. The hotel itself is, well, average. The rooms are both clean and spacious but the decor is dated and there is nothing that indicates the owners are trying very hard to overcome either the hotel's inauspicious location or its unimaginative interior. The courtesy set is private label, the jams at breakfast are part home-made but part supermarket bought, the croissants are from the closest, rather than the best, boulangerie. All-in-all our one-night stay at Hotel Grillon was underwhelming. Much could be forgiven if it was the only game in town but Beaune, fortunately, boasts a plethora of far more interesting options at a similar price.

Cet avis nous surprend beaucoup.
En effet, notre hôtel est implanté à Beaune depuis 35 ans.
Nous sommes à 800m des commerces du centre ville de Beaune et avons aussi la chance d'avoir un petit supermarché avec une station service à 500m. Nous vous assurons que notre pain et nos croissants sont toujours achetés chez notre boulanger et que l'ensemble de notre clientèle les trouve excellents.
Nous conseillons à ce client de bien réfléchir sur son choix de l'emplacement de l' hôtel avant de réserver .

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!
