comfortable bed, clean surroundings.
The hotel was first class. I was very pleased with every aspect of this facility. The roads going to the hotel are a little complicated. (Use a good map surch engine)
Menu very good The hotel corridors smelt very strongly of cigarette smoke which we found obnoxious.
Cyril was very helpful and attentive to me as I had my leg in plaster and needed extra help.
very good for an overnight stop surprised that WIFI was not free
Good food, spacious room, quieter than a city centre hotel. Have stayed at various hotels in the Novotel Group and know that their standards are good and can be relied on.
We were very satisfied with this hotel. The room was quiet, clean and the bed was very comfortable.
Everything ok, wifi and gym
The spacious areas and the relaxed atmosphere
We only stayed over night onour way south.
The friendly welcome
Very friendly and welcoming host. Nice quiet location with clean and comfortable rooms. Good breakfast and lovely restaurant within a couple of miles. Would recommend.
The setting is quiet and peaceful. The owner (Ms. Simon) speaks English, and she is very friendly and helpful. There is secure parking. The village of Chandelles is a few kilometers from Maintenon, which has a very good restaurant (ask Ms. Simon for the name), several cafes and boulangeries, and a chateau that is worth visiting; Chandelles is also close to Chartres and Paris. There was nothing we did not like--it was excellent.
The owner looked after us extremely well and was cheerful, enthusiastic and most helpful. The owner has thought of the little details that make you comfortable. A lot of excellent local information was made available to us, as well as useful recommendations. The warning about the steepness of the stairs is appropriate.
Clean and comfortable and the b & b is in a very quiet area.. Nothing
Starting with a very warm and friendly welcome, to secure parking, nicely furnished rooms and a very good breakfast.
Very friendly and homely feel. The proprietor gave a very personal service, the accommodation was very clean and comfortable and breakfast in the morning was delightful.
Quality of the room .peaceful situation n/a
Friendly owner (& dog) good breakfast and excellent rooms with a lounge with tea & coffee making facilities which yu rarely find in any continental hotels or B&Bs. Handy for Paris, Chartres and historic sites.
The hd tv! Really noisy on friday and saturday nights...bed was fine...pillow was lumpy. everything was clean yet I still felt kinda sketchy about the whole thing. the only thing this hotel had going for it was the location....RIGHT Across the street from the train station and like 5 mins away from Chartres cathedral.
Yes, absolutely No
Excellent central location, directly opposite SNCF station and within 5 minutes walk of cathedral. Good sized room with decent shower. Car Park name on directions has now changed. Car Park is now called La Gare
Proximity to city centre and railway station Staff could have been more welcoming
Good location near station. No onsite parking and but of an odd traffic pattern but parking setup at walking distance garage was OK. Courteous staff. Smell from bathroom in room. Room pretty basic for price but not much option apparent in Chartres.
It was vwell located within the cathedral site Breakfast was ok but not worth the money
Chartres is a very walkable town and this hotel was within walking distance of a main shopping area and the cathedral. This hotel is located near the main train station which draws a large number of undesirable people. We did not feel completely safe in this area walking with a toddler in tow.
Nice location, quiet, possibility to leave luggage. There was some strange liquid dropping in the bathroom.
tranquility, near to centre of the city
We were pleasantly surprised by the meal we enjoyed in the restaurant. It was excellent! We did not have breakfast as even at a reasonable 5 euros 90, compared with most French hotel's 8 euros, it is still cheaper to do what we did, which was have breajfast at the local Geant: orange juice freshly squeezed, hot chocolate and a pain au raisin for 3 euros 20. Just the price of the breakfast.
Helpfulness of the manager Vary hard to find at night, deep in an industrial estate. Best described as "past its best". Had it not had a restaurant I think we would have gone hungry rather than try to find somewhere else to eat and then find our way back.
We arrived late but phoned well before check in, everything was perfect, could not ask for a better service. quiet room and breakfast, ideal for stopping over night, I am sure staying a few nights would be good too as they have a restaurant. None
We found the hotel excellent for the purpose of our stay. Nothing
Price, relatively cheap. Helpful guy on desk Toilet and shower facility in poor order, but they did work
Budget hotel near the motorway - but very comfortable and clean. Didn't hear noise from the road. Spacious parking lot. Nice room. Only 30 min. walk to the city center. In the morning you just continue your trip and don't waste time in traffic. Very good place for stopover.
Perfect for a stop over break. Clean and comfortable. Rooms are way too hot!
Location and easy to find. Restaurant reasonable price and food quite good. General decor good. Comfort of room and hotel reasonable for the price Cleanliness of room. There were cobwebs in many areas of the room indicating that cleaning had only been carried out superficially. Also there was thick dust and other debris under the bed. We were initially allocated a room but asked to be moved as it had a smell (posibly cigarette smoke)and it overlooked a noisy roundabout. In the second room there were bread crumbs in the bed which led us to think that the sheets may not have been changed since the previous occupant(very serious if true).
The reception staff were very helpful and even provided breakfast for us past the 9am closing time. The rooms were fine but the location is only really suitable if you have a car. If you stay here, just remember to check in before 9-10pm - the reception is unmanned after this time. Bathrooms were a bit dated.
Great food Very friendly staff Hard to find No a/c
We stayed for two nights with a view to visiting the cathedral and old town at our leisure, so the location was ideal. The hotel is of interesting character, where uneven floors and doors which don't quite fit properly are all part of its quirky charm. Our room, Les Louis, was warm and comfortable, with a novel shower and a surprise kitchenette in a cupboard. Internet access was fine. We were given a friendly reception by the proprietor, and we enjoyed reasonably priced, unpretentious meals on both evenings. A plentiful, traditional breakfast was served. On arrival, we had to unblock the sink in the bathroom. The lighting was dim, making it difficult to read. Not the hotel's fault, but parking is at a premium in Chartres. We could possibly have used the nearby underground car-park, at the hotel's expense, but chose not to risk it because of our vehicle's height. Luckily, we found a space just outside, but feeding the meter was not cheap.
Interesting decor, comfortable bed. Very close to cathedral No tea/coffee facilities or glasses. No soap or shampoo.
Excellent staff and management.
Very Individually French - lovely warm atmosphere - many unique features - very comfprtable - excellent breakfast - other good restaurants very close
Lovely hotel... Nothing to much trouble.. Everything worked ...loads of hot water ..good position.. Good food.. Owner was away his mother made us feel very welcome and at home... None
Excellent friendly staff. Lovely location right in the centre of Chartres old town. Great breakfast and evening meal also. Parking permit is given for parking. Car park is a walk away but it is definately worth the short 3 minute walk.
Great location, excellent room, very good breakfast, value for money. But see below. We booked a room for the night of 16 December 2010. We went out to dinner in the evening. When we returned, at about 9.30pm, the hotel was locked and there was nobody there. It transpired that we were the only residents and the staff had left for the night. It was raining very hard and extremely cold. After much banging at the front door, which was fruitless, we went to a neighbouring restaurant. An extremely pleasant young man there (at Le Bistrot de la Cathedrale) contacted the Parvis staff who told him we should use our room key. Long story short, the key did not work. Finally the staff member turned up and let us in, acknowledging that it was the front door lock which did not work. It was by now sub-zero temperature. Not happy.
Excellent location, small and friendly hotel
Quirky hotel but really good. Great central Chartres location. Great room. Excellent food, we had lunch, dinner & breakfast. Parking is an issue but definitely worth the hassle for the location.
It has character, charm and perfect location
we were very happy with the services and restaurant - the hotel and staff proved to be everything we needed and wanted and expected. THank you
The room was comfortable and the staff pleasant. The staff spoke English which was a nice touch considering my pathetic attempt at French. The food was very good, probably a little upmarket for me, but we treated ourselves. The bed was the best I've slept in. Because it was on an out of town site we were restricted to eating and drinking at the hotel, which made a cheap room very expensive. On our second visit we drove into town for dinner.
close to motorway as we only stayed overnight
Being familiar with French roadside budget hotels I was fearing the worst and ended up being entirely pleasantly surprised by the accomodation, the room, the friendliness of the staff etc. Nothing
Clean, modern and efficiently run. Restaurant very handy for our one night stopover on way from South of France to Calais and the food was excellent. French menu was not very well translated into English but it gave us a good laugh!
Ndew hotel, very nice staff, the shower was fantastic.
Good stopover on our drive to Spain. Signposting has improved since earlier reviews. Helpful staff.
Location. Air conditioning is regulated by hotel stuff and it was too hot for me in the room.
Very Clean & Fresh Restaurant
The hotel was very fresh and spacious, a suprise for the price. There was nothing to dislike.
The location, the staff,the hotel ambience No porter available for luggage to room, parking arrangements, no english tv other than bbc world
A great hotel in a lovely town, a nice relaxing experience.we will come again
Clean room, English speaking receptionist,staff generally polite and helpful No restaurant and only a very limited menu. Wine not served by the bottle with the meal, we were forced to buy it by the glass, very expensive.
Spacious well appointed warm spotlessly clean Nothing
The hotel has a wonderful location across from the chateau and tourist information in a very quaint town and building. This is the cleanest hotel I have ever seen, the air is incredibly fresh and the rooms spotless! Wonderful breakfast too!
the position of the hotel was excellent. Lovely rooms, good service.
Hotel was generally very clean and staff were very helpful Parking facilities were not 'onsite' and subject to frequent unavailability.
The room was spacious and the decoration was stylish and refined; the kettle, tea and coffee were most welcome. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a quiet, restful weekend with long walks in the park of the chateau. everything was fine!
The location is perfect to visit the wonderful castle (it's just across the street) and also to go shopping or eating. It was silent, clean, comfortable, with a nice mini-bar and coffee/tea set. We chose the hotel to stay for one night and continue our trip, but we found it so nice that we decided to stay one more night. The staff was also very kind to allow us to have our bikes in their depots (so we could feel safer by not leaving them attached to our car). There is a public parking just in front, but also there are more parkings all around the area (we had no problems since we stayed during the weekend, but it seems that Tuesdays and Fridays it's forbidden to park because of the street market)
Great place, fantatstic location right at the Chateaux
Easy to find, central, parking and ok restaurant. Reception area large but lacks atmosphere. Separate lounge/cocktail bar could help.
good breakfast buffet, parking in a closed hotel area with fair price (€ 8,-), only five minutes walk to the town center (cathedral) our room (side to the railway station) was a little bit noisy, in the hotel corridors it smells like "toilet cleaner"
A good city location for an above average quality of hotel,it was well worth paying the extra tariff to stay in a very clean enviroment with a very helpful manager.The internet came free of charge and the private car parking at a small cost was secure ,although we did not have time for breakfast it looked very appertising and fresh.
It was lovely, staff was friendly and helpful. Nice low key hotel. Good sized room, free internet. Liked everything
secure parking on site, proximity to centre - easily walkable. nothing
Good location, friendly & helpful staff, and pleasant surroundings NO
Very convenient for city centre. very good for overnight stay.
Good location for visiting Chartres cathedral (sadly being seriously renovated). Hotel has character and staff are friendly and parking is secure.
Clean room, comfortable, ac, good shower, easy to get to places by foot. Staff was busy with tour groups. Breakfast was not included. You had to pay for parking.
Friendly helpfull staff, good value and a decent breakfast. The bathroom in our room was excellent and well fitted out. The room althugh adequate was a little cramped
Good price, friendly service, free Wifi/Wlan, clean. A great place if you're not looking for luxury or a central location. For those guests without a car, it would be good if the street leading up to the hotel had pavements/sidewalks.
Hotel staff kindly sent a person to pick us up guiding to the the hotel. It was very kind for us. Bathroom was very small.But it was fit the price...?
Very friendly staff.
...... only the prize. I can survive creaky floor but smelly towels it's just too much...
The concierge, an older gentleman who was covering the holday of the regular receptionist, was particularly accommodating and helpful, despite not speaking English. The bathroom was a little on the small side for a 3-person room.
The restaurant at the hotel served a very good meal. the hotel itself was less than we expected from the information on the website.
The staff was outstanding. Stayed an extra night and without hesitation would stay there again. although the temperature was mild to cool, no A/C in rooms.
silence and good
noisy when someone goes in the stairs or next to your door
Staff were polite and helpful. Room was clean. The hotel is more suited to one person per room, business people requiring a budget overnight stay. We also had dinner and breakfast, food was average but good value for what they charged. Rooms are small, bathroom is miniscule. Shower area is the smallest I have seen. You get what you pay for and for 43 Euro/night, you can not get much better so close to Paris.
We were unable to access the wifi service. It was not only disappointing but difficult as we needed to make important business contacts.
Nice breakfast though quite expensive. Room very small and no tea/coffee making facilities or air con
Nice clean modern hotel with friendly reception staff The room was very hot, despite air conditioning, in the night we couldn't sleep because it was so hot and asked someone to come up to the room to check it was working properly, they just said all was as it should be despite the fact that we were all so hot.
I am english. I thought that it was a good hotel and very good food the dirty babies nappy that we found under the bed!
Good location on main raod route. Businesslike and efficient. Good breakfast!
location and quiet No tea coffee making facilities in the room. My debit card was pre-charged and I wanted to pay in cash thus avoiding a bad exchange rate.
Staff were excellent, friendly and helpfull. Everything was very smooth from booking in to booking out. Not very well signposted from main road.
Very easy to locate and close to main autoroute. Junior suites offer plenty of room for a family and at a very good rate. Children were not charged for breakfast which whilst a typical continental buffet was better than many in such chain hotels.
Comfortable room - with all the facilities required - clean bathroom - quiet room - very nice The noise in the corridor was bad due to people coming in at all hours of the night - it seems a shame when the room itself is so quiet.
visited The cathedral and town no
Excellent position close to cathedral with good parkinbg within what also seemed to be a seminary. Good typical continental breakfast not quite as expensive as most other hotels. The entrance is in Rue Des Acacias, which is one way, and you may need to reverse into the entrance as its awarkdly behind you on the left. Take careful notice of the method of getting into the inner zone via the bollards.
The location is great and the people were very friendly. Very good value
Excellent location, private parking included. Room small and lacking in facilities.
Right in town centre and next to the church and lovely views
The hotel was calm, in a beautiful building with very clean and well heated rooms. Breakfast was really nice with many different items (not typically French!). A cozy, familiar atmosphere.
The hotel building itself is beautiful and set in the centre of Chartres. It is really meant as a place for people who like the historic aspects of the city. The room was pretty basic but the view made up for it.
Secure parking in middle of city, pleasant staff, welcoming and excellent breakfast!
Clean, comfortable room if a bit functional. Right in the centre of town and somewhat unusual. Very difficult to find in the dark.
the location was great, staff friendly and helpful and the place was clean and well cared for. the old monestary is lovely, yet the remodel choices of the plastic bathroom and wall colors did not suite it's history and charm.
The hotel is a beautiful building and in a most attractive and convenient location at the heart of the town. Cathedral is a stone's throw away. Rooms are basic but light and comfortable and everything seemed to work. Substantial buffet breakfast at 7.50 euros a head was good value although kiwi fruit was hard and inedible and hard boiled eggs felt as though they had been boiled overnight! Difficult vehicular access through narrow steep streets and restricted by security bollards which descend only when intercom contact is made with operator. Reception at the hotel was not good and we were kept waiting for 20 minutes as the sole receptionist had a long gossip with some young people. Finally relief arrived although unable to operate the computerised check-in system without assistance. In other words, not very professional reception at alland whole process took at least 30 minutes from arrival at reception until installation in room!
a beautiful chateau a wonderful stay
Wonderfull setting , comfortable room The food was excellent with an extensive wine list, however it was very expensive.
The Chateau was a unique experience, which was exactly what we were looking for on our trip. It was very well maintained and the rooms were spacious. The proximity to Paris was key for our trip.
The beauty of the buildings and grounds Three flights of stairs to climb to the room
Oustanding facility Concierge could be more helpful in arranging activities
Exterior outside is excellent. The room for double is bad. Double room in this hotel are in poor location (attic) .The money I have paid 275 euro is not worth for the room like this.
The walk around the lake. the view from the room. No proper shower-only hand held.
Delightful setting. Beautiful hotel with great staff. Good facilities. None
Ambiance both internal and external The restaurant did not do justice to the hotel - being only a little more than adequate whilst the Hotel was substantialy more than adequate.
The restaurant service Was very very very ineficient And we wait one hour after sieting to be atended.
The restaurant had a good ambiance and good food, although we did have to wait 30 minutes before getting any attention. We were placed in an annex to the main hotel (this was not clear from our booking) and then at 07:30 the hotel started loading laundry into a truck directly below our bedroom window.
