    An over powering smell of drains in the bedroom tracked down to the shower drain which had not been cleaned properly for along time. No amount of room spray could mask the smell!

    There is no private hotel car park and you are to share the facilities of the large town car park. The town is very busy throughout the day and into the evening and spaces in the car park are at a premium.

    This is a large, popular hotel at the bottom of the medieval Vezelay town hill. Facilities are excellent and we enjoyed a tasty meal in the hotel dining room. Staff were helpful and friendly throughout. The room was on the small side for a Junior Suite but the use of a small, private verandah made up for it.

    Sink was almost completely plugged. Elevator only to 2nd floor, but they carried the luggage up. The breakfast was of very poor quality and the coffee terrible (14 EU). Such a surprise as everything else was exceptional.

    Beautiful room with fantastic view of the town, cathedral, and countryside from 2 big windows. I could stay here for a week. Lovely bedding and comfortable bed. Extremely clean. Room was comfortably cool without AC. Staff extremely helpful, especially Katarina. Excellent bar --- try the local beer it's excellent. Good lighting and plugs. Good WIFI. Great restaurant near the cathedral called La Terasse. I went twice. Reservations recommended at restaurants in this town. They are very good and very booked up. Convenient parking at either 5 or 8 euros a day. Convenient location --- about a 10 minute walk up the main street of lovely shops and cafes to the cathedral and gorgeous terrace view.

    The staff were very woolly - we were taken to an unmade room on arrival. Our room was unmade at 4pm the following day.The dinner which was excellent took hours due to hectic/poor service. I think the staff try but they are not very charming. Having said this I left something at the hotel and they called me to tell me - which is very rare.

    the aesthetics, colours, garden terrace were lovely - our room was in the annexe overlooking the countryside.The position at the bottom of the hill is perfect after walking and visiting the church, to be out of the village and away from the pilgrims.

    • Superior Double Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    Just about everything - to summarise: the room (especially the bathroom), the noise, the attitude of the management / owners, the breakfast chaos, the high prices. Our 'superior' room was a joke. Shower was a hand-held dribbling thing over the bath (lethal) and at one point I counted over 50 bikers right outside the window. At breakfast I had to ask for . . a cup for my coffee, a cereal bowl, some milk . . . it was a shambles - and expensive. Basil and Cybil would have done much better. The manager didn't want to know, just smiled at us! Check your bill - they these wrong too. Visit Vezelay for the day only. You'll not get any sleep at night here - Auxerre is MUCH better and doesn't suffer from the Hells Angel effect.

    I liked the overall position however it turned out to be the motor-biker's of France primary meeting up point.

    • Stayed 7 nights

    We were first assigned to a room in a separate building, perhaps in an attempt to allow for a more quiet surrounding as we were traveling with a baby. However the room had a damp smell and below par. We were very happy with the alternative room we were provided with (same type) in the main building

    The hotel is extremely well located in the charming village of Vezelay, surrounded by a (relatively to the area) wide selection of dining options and stores. We stayed at a superior triple room which was spacious. Staff was accommodating and pleasant. Breakfast was superb with an extremely wide selection of bread and pastry, cheese including the famous local epoisses, etc.

    The evening manager was great as we got a little lost in the woods around the village due to some road closure so we arrived quite late. The room was very big and comfortable for the three of us and the bathroom was enormous and all tiled in white. The bar was very nice. The building is very elegant.

    The hotel prides itself in it's kitchen and dinner menu. Other reviews described it as innovative cuisine. We found the meal odd in taste and appearance so were underwhelmed.

    Vezelay is a bit off the beaten track. The hotel is at the bottom of the village so easy to spot as you arrive with both public and private parking available. It has old fashioned grace with updated, comfortable rooms. We found an easy, friendly check-in process, and lovely amenities including air conditioning which was especially appreciated in the extremely warm weather, an elevator, and a clean and comfortable room with dreamy beds. Plus a lovely view over the countryside. Pricey for us but a welcome respite from hours on the road.
