Exceptional 10.0
Best hotel
Wonderful hotel. I've stayed there for years. Wouldn't choose anywhere else in the Vezelay region.
Bradley, us1 night business trip
Good 6.0
A good base for Vezelay and the surroundings
Great location. Our triple bedroom had an amazing countryside view. Reception service and service overall was very friendly - maybe a little bit on the formal side. The main downside was the food. The food at the fine dining restaurant was overpriced for the quality (compared to the Cheval Blanc next door, for example), and the breakfast buffet had little choice. Also, the WIFI was a little weak.

A lovely area to spend a few days!o
A fantastic place and area in which to spend time. Great food and wine too! Only negative was insufficient cupboard/wardrobe space for hanging clothes. We spent a week in the hotel whereas it seemed to be the sort of area where people spend one or two nights before moving on. As a base for exploring the area we found everything to our liking!

Superior room was large with an enormous shower room. Very comfortable bed. Hotel is at the bottom of the road that leads up through Vézelay so great location for seeing all the sites. Ate elsewhere for dinner as didn't want to spend a fortune on evening meal. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Spoke French slowly so we could understand and have a conversation.

Our small group of touring musicians stayed at this wonderful hotel overnight, en route from Paris to another show in Lyon. I booked the hotel based on a number of factors - price, location, facilities, etc - and the reality of it surpassed all expectations, beginning with the wonderful welcome, care and service extended to us when we checked in. The hotel is a fabulous place to stay in the incredibly beautiful place that is Vézelay. Both accommodation and location are highly recommended.
