“Good stop over”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Spent an afternoon and evening in Vezelay and stayed here. Owner is great, very friendly, low key and decent English. The location is very charming and picturesque. Had a nice meal in the restaurant across the street. Hotel is simple and basic but clean and comfortable. Breakfast is excellent. If you are looking for a good value in this lovely town, this is a good place.

The hotel is conveniently located on the main square, just outside the Old Town, and at the foot of Rue St-Etienne, which leads up to the Basilica. There was plenty of parking in front of the hotel (free overnight, though I believe you have to pay during the day, maximum of 3 euros for the entire day). With such high ratings on TripAdvisor I expected a real gem. The hotel was clean and the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom included a tub which is quite rare, but the room was rather small and the furnishings basic. My room had a view of the Old Town. The breakfast area had large picture windows that overlooked the beautiful valley below. There is free WiFi and a flat screen TV in the room.

I found the Hotel le Compostelle to be quiet, comfortable, well located, friendly, clean, and offering rooms with great views over the lovely countryside surrounding Vezelay. I would stay there again. It was reasonably priced and the breakfast was abundant and varied, including fresh fruit, outstanding cold sliced meats, croissants, several kinds of bread, local jams, butter, yogurt, everything you could want for breakfast and plenty of it. Nearby there are many restaurants in various price ranges. I found this to be a good value in a good location and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: see if you can get a room with a view out to the countryside, some rooms face the village, also love...

You step over there and you fell like to be part of the family the reception is so harm and friendly is very difficult to find better
Don't misunderstood we are talking about a small hotel with very reasonable prices not about a 5 starts.

Vezelay is a small town. And there are few hotels that are “close in” to the old town. We were pleased to get a room in this hotel, as others were fully booked. While we were in Vezelay, this hotel was fully booked. This is a basic hotel, and you get what you pay for. We paid 66 euro for a mid size room with a large bathroom. The room had stairs to a dark loft with one bed, which we didn’t use. The cupboard for our clothing was occupied by extra bedding, which I had to move to store my clothing. We had no armchairs for sitting, so we used the hotel’s attractive sitting room in the evening. The hotel was quiet. We had main floor accommodations, so we were troubled by the fact there was no lift. Breakfast was good and tasty, served in an attractive room. And yes, we would go back.

A nice hotel just below the main street, with a free parking nearby (If you don'f find a parking place just in front). Rooms are average, but the view from the back rooms are gorgeous! Some doing directly to a charming garden. The breakfast room has also an unforgettable view. Staff very friendly!

Room Tip: Back rooms are a must!

Vezeley's population is less than 500, so there aren't a wide range of choices. Le Compostelle is a nice place, looking up the hill at the old town, with pleasant views of surrounding countryside from our room. The room was clean and largish by European standards. The beds were comfortable and the room and bath clean. Cleanliness, not newness, is most important to me. Staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay

Room Tip: Choose one looking out over the valley.
