Good typical French hotel which gives it atmosphere and great location. Free car park. Lots of cafes and restaurants right outside. Very clean and tidy rooms. Palace 5 mins away. Staff in hotel were very nice and helpful and obviously care about their hotel. I was amazed by Versailles - the palace, the buildings, the lovely streets with the cafes...

A good place to stay for your visit to Versailles. 5 minutes walk to the palace, a square full of good restaurants, very secure free parking. Room was good especially for the price and an excellent buffet breakfast. Wifi was a bit hit and miss in the room but that might be my phone as my girlfriend had wifi ok...

Couldn't wish for friendlier staff. The room was cosy and clean.The hotel is in a great location for visiting the palace. Free on site parking is great, it's off road and i believe it's locked at night. There's restaurants and cafe's on both sides of the hotel, so you don't need to travel far for a nice meal if you...

We stayed here for three nights while visiting friends in the next town. It was a lovely, quaint hotel near to restaurants, bars, shopping, the Palace and the markets. It was wonderful to stroll about the markets, stop at the cafes and enjoy some delicious meals. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The wifi worked well and it...

Hello What a wonderful comment to read! Unfortunately we don't have any English channels, sorry about that. Not all of our superior rooms have the kitchenette option (for other readers' info). I'm glad you enjoyed it! It is a cultural difference not to have restaurants serving breakfast, and unfortunate :-) Thank you for taking the time to comment and we...

Historic hotel in a great area with lots of restaurants, bars, market, etc. We were here to see the castle, the town and spend a day in Paris. The hotel is very comfortable and the breakfast was good. Soft boiled eggs were available but sometimes you had to ask or wait a bit for them to come out. Upon arrival...

Hello Thank you for your kind comment and I'm glad you had a good stay. We prefer to offer hard-boiled eggs on demand for our guests to avoid them cooling off too long :) They need a couple of minutes to cook. Thank you also for mentioning easy access to our parking despite the animated market place! It is very...

My wife and I stayed here one night on 5th October. The hotel is a very historic building, and was very conveniently situated for a visit to the Chateau although a 5 minute walk is probably only possible if your name is Usain Bolt. Staff (including Camille on reception) were all helpful and friendly. The room although reasonably sized and...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Chosen for proximity to the Palace of Versailles which was a 15 minute walk away. Secure car parking.

This is a great little hotel in the middle of Versailles. Small rooms, but all clean and well equipped, and in any case you come to this hotel from which to explore one of France's most iconic towns and of course the Chateau de Versailles - which is a 5 minute walk away. The hotel has a car park, and...

This hotel is in a brilliant location. The reception staff friendly and helpful. The room had lovely voiles and curtains and the bed was comfy with lovely crisp sheets, however, the carpets need replacing and the bathroom was poor. The shower cubicle was mouldy round the door frame and needed re siliconing. As for the towels they were very poor,...
