Stayed at La Chaine D'Or as part of a touring week in Normandy. It came by personal recommendation from a friend.
We were not disappointed during our two night stay, for which we booked the half board rate.
We were welcomed well on arrival late afternoon found a space in the courtyard car park, and given a detailed briefing on our bedroom.
The room, overlooking the Seine benefitted from the beautiful outlook, and came with a comfortable bed, appropriate furniture, and a good bathroom, which a strong shower over the bath.
In many ways as we had been told, the evening meal was the highlight. The beautifully prepared and artistically served food of four courses was simply outstanding. The restaurant staff were helpful; and the room had lovely views of the river.
Breakfast was a more straightforward affair, but satisfying.
The village itself is very pleasant to stroll around, and as others have observed, close (a 30 minute drive) to Monet's garden. The hotel staff were very willing to provide any information on the area that we needed.
Only one complaint - the high price of drinks and wine in the restaurant (we would have liked to see the opportunity to buy a carafe of house wine, rather than having to buy a bottle costing over 30 euros (and that was for the cheaper bottles!).
That said, the hotel is overall a fine establishment. And we would certainly return to La Chaine D'Or.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Chaîne d’Or gets her name from the history of the 18 th century, when the house was considered as a toll house. A large chain was crossing the Seine river between the rives and the island. Each boat that wanted to cross the river from La Havre to Paris had to pay a toll. The king was getting so much money from this toll, that people were telling that it was a “golden chain”. La Chaine d’Or has been successively an auberge, an hotel, and a coffee shop, just in front of the church, where men were meeting while their wifes were in the church.After world war 2nd, the Boirel family proposed a traditionnal cuisine, which was very appreciated from the local guests. Monsieur Boutineau went on with this tradition. Several years later, Monsieur et Madame Foucault, as new owners, decided to propose a gastronomic restaurant and with the help of the Chef, Monsieur Chevalliez, they obtained a Star from the famous Michelin Guide.When the chef left to buy his own restaurant, Madame Foucault sold la Chaîne d’Or which had a difficult time for a while.Today, Stephanie and Olivier Bicot, their team and the Chef Philippe Lallier are very proud to welcome you and to share their passion for the French gastronomy. ... more less
