The staff do everything to make sure guests’ check-in and stay go as well as possible. And all in a good mood, as shown by the colours that brighten up the whole hotel.
“Besides the warmth of our hospitality, we put an emphasis on effectiveness,” says Patrice. The rooms are testament to this.

VISIT DREUXBetween Île-de-France and Normandy, Dreux is an appealing town with its pedestrian centre, overlooked by the royal chapel where the Orléans family is interred. The tombs and recumbent statues make it a real museum of 19th century sculpture. Take a walk around the town where you can also admire the wonderful 16th century belfry and the charming Place Métézeau. Wander around the Marcel-Dessal Art and History Museum to see the works of Claude Monet, Maurice de Vlaminck, Pierre Eugène Montézin and Henri Le Sidaner.
ANET CASTLEOnly the west wing remains of this charming castle built from 1548 for Diane de Poitiers, King Henri II’s mistress. However, you will be surprised by the entrance gate featuring a clock above it with a stag kept at bay by four dogs, and by the chapel. With its dome covered in trompe-l’œil boxes, this is a real architectural gem of the French Renaissance, designed by Philibert Delorme. To the left of the castle, a funeral chapel holds Diane de Poitiers’ remains.
CHARTRES CATHEDRALRodin called it ‘France’s Acropolis’ and it is a real gem of European Gothic art. Chartres cathedral is known all over the world for its architectural unity, the beauty of its two tall spires (106m and 115m) and its jamb statues. You can also admire the sculptured gates and wonderful stained glass windows from the 12th and 13th centuries which are the most important collection in France. For 800 years the cathedral has opened its large ambulatory and huge transept to pilgrims.

Had to wait more than half an hour to book in....not what you want after a long day driving...because the poor receptionist was having to cope with a large party booking in in front of us. Where was Patrice? I had a message saying he would be thete to greet ud.
Very clean hotel, with spacious rooms en a very nice staff! The breakfast-buffet was super, enough tot choose front.
