Reviewed 20 November 2016

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 was great having a fridge, stovetop and kitchen amenities in the room. Had we stayed longer, we would have considered purchasing meals to heat up and eat in the room. There was a grocery store within walking distance. The hotel itself was quite a historical building with ties to the palace. There were no English TV stations. The breakfast was very adequate and in a pleasant atmosphere. Although there were restaurants nearby, not many of them served breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke English. We would be pleased to stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the main floor as we both had mobility issues. I don't believe there is an elevato...

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 look forward to welcoming you soon!

Best regards,
Camilla.

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 we weren't sure how to access the car park...it was a Friday evening and the area was very busy as there are restaurants all around and lots of people walking in the one way street...but with a call we were assured we could drive down the street and access the gated parking area.

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 handy in Versailles.

We hope to welcome you again in the near future.

Best,
Camilla.

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 clean was rather disappointingly tired and some areas e.g. window frames were a bit shabby and in need of a good cleaning and repainting. . The room was obviously recently waĺlpapered and painted. The beds were modern, big enough and comfortable. The bathroom sink was obviously new so why not refurbish the toilet and bath? The hotel has no kitchen and therefore it is necessary to eat out in plentiful restaurants. There are no kitchen facilities in the room

Breakfast consists of the usual cereals, selection of yoghurts etc along with ac
couple of fruit juices, followed by toast, bread, croissant an coffee and tea came ftom a machine which was OK.

Although we understand nothing is ever perfect, we both feel the hotel does not reaĺly merit the rave reviews we have seen.

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. Room small and a bit outdated but location made up for this. Staff on reception very friendly and helpful. Lots of restaurants to choose from around a market square just outside hotel. Nice walk to the Palace, passing lots of shops. Hotel did not do dinner so we ate out on the two nights we were there. We did not have breakfast in the hotel - we did not need it after the dinner the previous evening.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the car park but it was very quiet.

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 while it has no evening restaurant, it's situated by the main square in Versailles, home to the fabulous covered markets and 18 restaurants.
Given the comparative low cost, it's best to book ahead.
