Hotel-Restaurant La Chaine d'Or
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Les Andelys
Reviewed June 28, 2014

We arrived on a Sunday night, requesting a room,and were immediately impressed by the owner/host's knowledge and enthusiasm for the historical importance of the building. Recognising that we were English, we were shown to a room, which was delightful, that had previously been used by Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle, and next door to another which had had Lawrence of Arabia as a guest. We were asked if we required demi pension, but we refused stating that we would like to choose our menu from the carte. We had one of the most amazing meals ever in France. Our table, overlooking the Seine, had a stunning view. The hostess was charming, and we chose our menu and had the accompanying wines. Both the food and the wines were superb. We have travelled widely in France and eaten at many two and three star establishments and this hotel is right up there with the best. A bottle of Champagne was opened for one of us to have a glass to compliment the strawberries!. On leaving and paying the bill, we were told that we had been placed on demi pension regardless, because it was better value for us. What a wonderful place. We will definitely be returning as soon as we can.

On our way to Rouen then Monet's farmhouse we fortunately chose our stopping off place. Following our GPS we wended our way down this road up this street down another lane where the trees were carved in a cube. Strange, yet memorable. Into the gated parking area. At last the pilgrims could rest. On the Seine. The hotel's rooms were as if out of my mind's eye of how a room should look that sits on a beautiful French river countryside. Opening the shuttered window, OMG. there just below twenty feet away was a small fishing boat where two or three locals sat on the shoreline casting. What a view. The rooms were decorated simply, very clean with great pride, I'm sure. No TV or radio to ruin what God has given us. Wonderful. The hotel was not finished. Come join us for dinner. I have no memory of what we ordered. I do remember the rough hewn timbers on ceiling of the dining room; the very courteous service, attentive non intrusive; the general cozy yet refined ambiance. From the wine to the delicious desert the food my wife and I enjoyed was some of the best food we have ever consumed. The quantity, quality, and cost shared an equilibrium that made our stop so memorable. Definitely, a place to stop at in future. Next time we will bring friends & family along for the treat.

Room Tip: A river view is a must......

One night in early December. We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival and had a great view of the Seine. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings in their restaurant. One of our best meals this trip which included several one and two star Michelin restaurants. Breakfast in room was the best we had on the trip. The owner was very gracious. We hope to return.

Room Tip: Book a room with a view of the seine

My wife and I recently stayed for two nights with friends and their 11 year old son. We took Mme Stephanie's autumn special offer and had a wonderful meal, if maybe too much good, rich and typically Norman food. Our rooms were enormous with beautiful views of the Seine. And we received extra special service from all of the staff, particularly Bernard and his young offsider (we did not get her name). Nothing was too much trouble. A top place in a beautiful town, and very good value for money.

We recently spent the night after a day visiting Giverny and Chateau Gaillard. We had a river view room, and it was spotless and gracious, with a vintage feel. Our dinner was wonderful- The dining room is beautiful and the food excellent. Breakfast was a typical continental spread, but, served in the dining room with starched linens and a view out onto the Seine, it was far from ordinary.

The hotel is in a superb location on the banks of the Seine. Room looked out over the river, locals were fishing and huge barges chugged slowly past. One of the "River Cruise" boats was tied up one morning (they are huge). Room was a little tired small things let the hotel down. Wi Fi was not working, radiator was loose on the floor and had made a hole in the all behind. Room key was very difficult to make work, Staff under pressure due to lack of man/woman power. Garden could benefit from some TLC. No obvious bar area. Food was good breakfast excellent. Room at the end of the hot water run so took a few minutes for the shower to warm up. Overall worth a try but the little things needed attention.

Room Tip: Try and get the red room.

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
