Le Clos Jouvenet
Ranked #4 of 28 Rouen B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Hubbie and I recently spent three nights at Le Clos Jouvenet, in the very charming city of Rouen. This is one of the best B&Bs I have ever stayed in. The house is a gracious 19th century property with beautiful gardens, and Mme DeWitte has decorated the house exquisitely. We had a very comfortable and spacious ensuite room on the second floor. It didn't have a TV but that was fine by me. There was a cosy lounge area for guests on the first floor where we could hang out with their very friendly cat Lilou and catch up on email (wifi signal was stronger here than in our room). Breakfast was delicious -not just coffee and croissants but cereals, yogurt, cheese, a variety of breads, fresh fruit, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Plenty for us and served in a lovely conservatory overlooking the garden.M. et Mme DeWitte were extremely hospitable and helpful - they really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and easy. For instance, we were travelling by train and there are no left luggage lockers at the station, so Mme DeWitte arranged for us to be able to leave our luggage at a hotel across the street from the station while we had a last few hours of sightseeing. The neighbourhood is on a hill overlooking the city with lovely views. It is about a 20 minute walk from the city centre, uphill but it was not a difficult walk. It is a quiet area with some convenient shops. Rouen is a very friendly city steeped in history, and staying at Le Clos Jouvenet made our trip doubly satisfying. Highly recommended!

This was the first time my husband and I have stayed at a B&B - thinking it was the right time and place to try it. We searched TripAdvisor for hours looking for the right fit for us. We were highly pleased and Le Clos Jouvenet has set the bar high for sure.

Catherine is highly responsive (via email and in person) and a pleasure to talk with. Her home that she's opened for the B&B is absolutely lovely and well maintained. Comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was simple and delicious. My husband especially loved her baked apples. Our room was well aquianted and bathrooms large with excellent tub/shower. We slept very well and also enjoyed giving a good scratching to their gracious kitty.

It was easy to find using GPS and Catherine's instructions. Was really nice to be able to leave our car in their parking area safe and sound while we explored the town for the day on foot.

Would highly recommend it, especially to explore the area.

Room Tip: My husband and I really enjoyed the 'Verger' room. Great bathtub as well if you like that s...

We stayed for one night and wished we could have stayed for longer. Catherine is a superb host and has created an extremely comfortable and well furnished home. The location overlooking Rouen is much quieter than we expected, and the large garden is also a surprise in a city. Breakfast was served in the sun room which overlooks the garden, and was well presented as well as providing a good start for the day. Parking at Le Clos Jouvenet is a bit tortuous as one has to reverse down the driveway, but at least one doesn't have to park in the narrow streets. The house is only 15 minutes walk from the cathedral or Old Market which is just as well as much of the centre of the city is car-free. Definitely worth staying here.

We stayed with Catherine for three nights (October 10 - 12, 2012). She could not have been a better host. This B&B is located a 25 minute walk (downhill on the way there, uphill on the way home) from the centre of Rouen. Catherine provided advice, helped with travel planning and even made reservations for us. The information provided was very helpful. This accommodation is well maintained and spotless.

Catherine offers a first rate operation that I would highly recommend to anyone.

Thanks Catherine for welcoming us into your home and making our stay so enjoyable.

This property is located about a 20-25 minute walk from downtown Rouen. If you are not inclined to walk much you will need to use your car or take taxis. We were welcomed with a beverage, and received advice about local restaurants and sites. The room was spacious, furnishings and decor were beautiful, and very clean, and the bed linen, towels , breakfast settings and serving pieces were elegant. Food at breakfast was fine but average.

A wonderful place to stay in Rouen and Catherine made us all feel very welcome! The home is so tastefully decorated yet doesn't feel stuffy or intimidating and it was really a special B & B. I would definitely recommend staying here when in the area.

Le Clos Jouvenet delivers all the aspects that other reviewers have listed and is indeed a rare gem. If you stay here on a visit to Rouen, on your way to or from Calais, you will be rewarded with a very special atmosphere.
One word of warning however: Check whether your room is suitable for elderly or disabled guests as our room was up a steep flight of stairs. That said, this is THE place to stay in Rouen, and your host, Catherine de Witte could not be more welcoming or charming.
We'll definitely be back.
