Hotel du Boeuf Couronne
Ranked #18 of 27 Hotels in Chartres
Reviewed 15 August 2017 via mobile

Pluses: Fabulous view of town square & Cathedral. Short walk into the historical thick of things. Good parking (you have to pre book) and dog friendly.

Minuses: Reception staff on check in unfriendly to the point of being rude. Ignored for 5 mins, then was curtly snapped at with a harsh 'one minute' and ignored again. This after racing to hotel as was told in an earlier call that Late check was impossible after 10pm as no one on site after that time! (We got stuck in awful traffic and staff had no solutions for what to do if we couldn't make it by 10). Rooms small & stuffy despite window open. Mattress soft & baggy. Shower tiny and in an awkward position across from the loo and curtain inadequate so loo seat got soaked. Found a bottle of 1/2 used mouthwash left on the floor. Walls thin so heard television and music from other rooms well into the night - bring ear plugs.

All things considered, the price of £60 for two people, a dog & parking was good, but the staff really let the place down. If we do return to Chartres, we may look at booking somewhere else.

Our second night in Chartres found us across town and with a view of the cathedral. As the underground car park was closed, we took up the offer of the hotel car park which was just down the street. The hotel is a three star and modern. It was well staffed on our arrival, and we took the small lift up to our room.The room was smallish and on a corner, so we were able to get a cool draught on a hot day.The bathroom was fine. We ate in the hotel that night, sitting on the front under the awning.We took the Menu de Terroir with a trout salad starter. My wife had veal in cream sauce while I had roast quail.We both finished with mille feuille.A bottle of sparkling Saumur accompanied it all well Some noise outside early in the morning, but otherwise a good visit..

The hotel is well situated just across from the cathedral and close to many restaurants. The parking is nearby and easy to access. All staff were very welcoming and helpful and the room was clean with comfortable beds. All in all it was pretty much as I had expected and hoped for, save the bathroom. They really need to up their game here with only a bath mounted shower and no shower curtain. Result: you either stand up and make a mess or wallow round in the bat trying to take a proper shower.

I guess the acid question is would I go back? The answer is yes but I would be a bit more specific about the room I wanted.

The continental breakfast was fine with plenty of choice and very good coffee - always a must!

Only stayed two night in there: great location within 5min walk from the train station (uphill) and 5/10min to city centre (uphill).

Very friendly staff both at check-in and check-out.

Room was cleaned upon arrival but also cleaned on the next day with fresh towels and new toiletries provided.

Bed is comfy but no A/C no coffee and tea. Room is tiny.

I had a lovely stay but a bit pricey.

OK, first and foremost, if you have the chance to stay in Chartres, do it! A great place to wander around.
With regards to the hotel, our only experience was in the restaurant which, until the cheese desert arrived for one of us, it was quite good.
For a starter, I had marinated trout which was tasty and the scallops my wife had met with approval. My lamb chops and my wife's quail main courses also went down well especially with a decent but surprisingly light Pinot Noir.
Then the let down. I had Brie, the portion being extremely small but even for 5 Euro I expected more while my wife's milky coffee struggled size wise to compete with a French espresso. OK, not major issues but a bit of a let down at the tail end of a meal. Otherwise we may have ranked it higher.
Would we do again? Possibly but there are many other choices in front of that!

We have known this hotel for a long time but sadly not eaten there for some time. A friend invited us there and we were so pleased to accept. It was a lovely experience. The restaurant is formal with lovely table settings and a great menu. We had a set menu which gave the three of us plenty of scope for choice, and although we were guests, I felt that it was excellent value. Well cooked food and a great choice of wines too. Super service, but not over the top so we felt very comfortable.
All of our friends who have stayed at the hotel have found it a very convenient place to stay with all that they need for an enjoyable stay in Chartres. The hotel looks over an open area and has a fabulous view of the west front of the cathedral, even more memorable in the flood lights, and of course the son et lumière in the summer.

Arrived late Sunday afternoon, found the hotel easily enough, but tracking down the parking was much more tricky. After a couple of laps of the town we just dumped the car in the city car park and checked into the hotel. The staff were helpful and gave good directions to their garage, which was close, a bit tight space wise, but very useful.
The room was small and the bathroom very compact, but it was clean, quiet and very reasonably priced.
We ate in the restaurant, which was excellent, very tasty and again very good value.
Now I know the location of the car park, I would use this place again.
