First off, there was a terrible photo that came up when I used Google maps street view. Please ignore it, this place has obviously had a complete makeover quite recently.
It is now very smart and comfortable. The location is great, right in the centre of Chartres. A short walk from the station and easy to navigate to by road. They have their own, locked parking, chargeable but not expensive and very welcome in a city centre.
Staff very helpful and knowledgeable, excellent ciy centre map proferred immediately on booking in.
Only complaint perhaps, the breakfast could be better. It stated 12 euros each when we booked but we were only charged 10, fortunately, because it was still a bit expensive for what it was. Campanile charge only 8 euros for all you can eat and a massive choice.
The room rate is not cheap but you are paying a bit for the location and if you are in the middle of a long drive and only have one or two nights you don't want to be stuck out in the 'burbs. Chartres is easy to get in and out of and well worth a stopover. They are in the middle of cleaning the cathedral, which will make it even more impressive, all that stained glass, wonderful!More
