“THE place to stay in Epernay”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

I've just come back from a wonderful 2 night stay at Villa Eugene. What a beautiful place! The grounds are beautifully landscaped and impeccably maintained and the swimming pool is great on a warm day. The inside of the hotel is beautifully furnished with stunning chests of drawers, armoires and tables. The breakfast room is a light and airy place - a great place to start your day.

The hotel rooms are also thoughtfully furnished. The bathrooms are well finished and equipped, with fluffy towels and nice toiletries. The bed is soooo comfortable - getting out of it in the mornings was a bit of a challenge! We stayed in Room 23 on the second floor, which is a standard room with a small terrace with two chairs. Our friends stayed in Room 24 which is a deluxe (or higher level) room with a very large terrace. A great place in the evening to drink a bottle of Champagne :-)

Breakfast was very good, with a great selection of cheese, fresh fruit and charcuterie. But one of the best things about Villa Eugene is the service. Extremely warm and friendly reception staff are happy to help you with anything, from making appointments with Champagne producers, to recommending and booking restaurants. They think of the little details and do things before even being asked (a book left at reception with our key when we went out for dinner was placed on our bedside table when we got back). And while I don't expect hotel staff to speak good Engish, the fact that all the staff were fluent in English made it that much easier to communicate.

The hotel is very well located on Avenue de Champagne. You can walk to many restaurants from the hotel (they are around a 15 minute walk), which is a nice way to work off all the food and Champagne consumed!

I've stayed at other hotels in Epernay before, including Clos du Raymi. I think Villa Eugene is by far the best hotel in Epernay, and worth the additional cost. When we go back to Epernay, we will be going back to Villa Eugene!

Room Tip: Room 23 with a small terrace and Room 24 with a large terrace are both fantastic.

I stayed here with my Wife and youngest daughter while returning from our holiday in the south of France. The location was perfect for us within walking distance of the local restaurants as well as the Champagne Houses. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and polite, the room we were in was magnificent and roomy, even for the 3 of us. After an evening out we retired to the bar and enjoyed a glass of Bubbly. We intend to go to France next year and with out a doubt be returning to La Villa Eugene.

This is probably the place to stay in Epernay. It is the former house of Eugene Mercier, wealthy eccentric and founder of Mercier champagne. It has a great pool and the room and public areas are lovely. But a few problems: The hotel is situated at the far end of the Avenue de Champagne, and to get into town it's about a 15 minute walk. This isn't a problem if you're planning on spending all day in town, but it's just a little too far to pop in for lunch, come back to the hotel, pop out for a tasting, head back before dinner, etc. Your feet will hurt. You will be tired of the Avenue de Champagne. Also, one more quibble: I stayed here on Bastille Day. When we checked in, the staff didn't mention anything about the festivities that were JUST ABOUT to block off the entire Avenue de Champagne for the night. This meant that with aching feet from walking all day, we drove the car into town and were suddenly stranded. We could NOT get back to the hotel that night, every street was blocked. It was incredibly frustrating, and we ended up dumping the car in town and having to walk the 20 minutes back to the hotel anyway. I of course don't mind local festivities, but a little heads up, even a sign on the reception desk, warning guests that things were about to get very inconvenient would have been very much appreciated.

Room Tip: Some people have complained about rooms on the third floor being cramped and hastily remodeled, but...

I stayed here with my daughters on recommendation and it didn't let us down. The staff were helpful, all spoke English and the style is classic French with rooms beautifully appointed. We had a fun night walking along the Avenue de Champagne past all of the increasingly expensive and famous champagne houses to the centre of town. Found a number of indoor and outdoor brasseries for dinner. The outdoor pool was good fun for the teenagers.

We stayed here for one night, I loved everything about about this hotel. The room was lovely, the decor was beautiful the bathroom also fab. We stayed on a Sunday so when we arrived headed straight to the pool, we had it to ourselves all afternoon the staff brought us out a bottle of Champagne. It really was the life...
The staff were very helpful the recommended serval restaurants for dinner and made the booking for us. The walk into the town centre is fabulous, as the street is lined with champagne houses. It really is a very smart place to visit.
We had breakfast, I think it was an additional €17 it was really good the selection on offer was superb.
The following day we visited the Mercier Champagne house, it was extremely interesting and well worth a visit, it's next door to the hotel.

It's a beautiful place, just 10 minutes walk to the centre. The rooms we've stayed in are very nicely appointed, and we always find it to be very quiet and tranquil. It's our first stopover each year on the way down to Cote D'Azur, and the last one on the way back, and we always look
forward to staying again and again. No restaurant for evening meal, but there are some nice restaurants in Epernay, so it's no problem. Breakfast is very, very good by French standards and gives you plenty of opportunity to fill up for the day ahead. Excellent all round

Room Tip: Try and check in early as the car park's not the biggest

There's lots of things to love about Hotel Eugene. The staff are keen, the decor is beautiful, its comfortable, has a lovely garden & pool, the breakfast room is light & airy, & its so close to the Avenue du Champagne. The Champagne bar is also great - good wine list, comfortable, classy, they won't let you have the remote or change the DVDs but the access to champagne easily makes up for it. The only negative I have is the poor wifi - which is an issue if you were hoping to work while being there. Its also a bit up there in $$.

Room Tip: Rooms near the road are quiet & larger than some of the others but there is no view or courtyard...
