Welcome to Sylvie Decorde's establishment where charming hotel meets guesthouse.
A former Burgundy inn and a verdant setting right in the town centre.
"Service, welcome and sharing mean something here I like my guests to feel right at home." .
It's a low-key spot. Almost too much so, seen from the street. But once over the threshold, the surroundings of The Originals City, Hotel Clos Sainte Marie, Nevers will win you over with their uniqueness, authenticity, charm and greenery. "I bought this former inn in 2008," explains Sylvie who, after a number of years in a large hotel group, chose to move on and combine work and family life. "A small place suits me really well. It allows myself and my team to offer a more personal experience to guests and to guide and advise them on Nevers and the region." Inside her 3-star hotel, Sylvie has created a real haven and a world apart with comfortable rooms against a backdrop of green. Here, guests are woken by birdsong just a few streets from Nevers town centre, in the Burgundy french region.
The Originals City, Hotel Clos Sainte Marie, Nevers comes with 17 rooms split between the main building (former inn) and the garden lodge. Spacious and well equipped, they boast two decorative styles: old world charm in the main building overlooking the interior and the street, and contemporary influences in the lodge which is quieter with direct access to the outdoors and terraces for relaxation.
