This hotel impressed from the start - welcome, service, valet parking.Right through staff were helpful and seemed genuinely pleased when we said how much we had enjoyed our stay. The room was large and furnished with taste. The bar is cosy and the breakfast offers a wide variety of lovely food, even inlcuding home-made jams.

Not your average Best Western. Classic old school luxury hotel recently refurbished with a starred restaurant ( we didn't try it). Plenty of character, excellent front desk service, rooms impeccably clean, spacious (for europe) and very comfortable with lots of plush pillows, great linen and thick duvets. Proper shower (not the horrible tub/shower hybrid), good towels. A bargain. 10 minute...

Dear Sir, Thank you for sharing your experience and for taking the time to give your feedback about Le Grand Monarque. It was a pleasure for our team having you at the hotel and we hope to welcome you again next time you will come in Chartres. Why not, soon, during Chartres en Lumières ? Thank you so much again....

One of the best pastas eaten. Michelin 1-star restaurant. Not much for a vegetarian but just truly awesome food, ambience and service! Very homely yet sophisticated for the town. Can't wait for the next time!

We have kept on returning to this hotel, whenever we are passing, for the last 20 years. Its always been welcoming, clean, and efficient and now has two good restaurants. Parking is some way away down a side street but the staff will park your car for you. Its hard to stop outside to unload due to new bus lanes.

Perfect location for exploring the Chartres and the Cathedrale. Based on a tip on TA, I paid a little more and we got a Prestige room - king bed, huge room, great modern bath, quiet - everything was great. Excellent check-in and service. After a long rainy day, we were too lazy and cold to go out to eat for...

Our favorite hotel in Chartres. Excellent rooms for a great price. Elegant hotel with a superb restaurant and a romantic bar. Wonderful staff. I can't say enough about this hotel. The location is superb. The attention to detail is superb. Everything is superb. And it's near the finest cathedrals in the universe. Do a YouTube search for "Chartres Cathedral documentary."...

We arrived in the evening without any reservation, and we were welcomed by a very nice and friendly lady. Without asking for anything we got upgraded to a very nice and quiet room on the courtyard. We didn't had the time to go to the spa, but we will do for sure next time.

Checking in was a bit busy, but with warm service. Kid & dog friendly which is always great for us. Spacious family room, well equipped. Michelin star restaurant & brasserie in the hotel. Very convenient. Good location. Quick walk to the cathédrale.

I have stayed here before and was enthralled with the room, and the room service. The desk staff were just as great as last time, but I booked a mid-rate room better than the last time and was given a room whose windows opened on to a walkway with cigarette butts on it. The room was so hot that we...

This hotel is well situated in the centre of Chartres just a short walk from the Cathedral. The complex road layout of the Place des Epars nearly blew our GPS SatNav off the map, but once you feel happy about crossing a bus lane and dodging into the '5 minute' drop-off it's easy to pop in to Reception ready for...
