Relais des Chartreux
Reviewed 12 May 2017

A large group of us stayed at the hotel, to attend a nearby Classic Car Event.
Our room had recently been refurbished and was comfortable and well equipped.
The three dinners or group had, were well cooked and well served.
I would have given the hotel a "Very Good" had it not been for the Breakfast service, which ranged from poor, to a bit of a shambles.
The hotel seemed incapable of keeping the buffet re-stocked with either food or crockery.
A shame, as the overall experience was good and the hotel benefits from extensive car parking.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room.

Was booked into this hotel by my employer on a one night stopover, the title pretty much sums it up.

The outside does look quite tired and the reception does nothing to change that impression however my room (147) was really very nice, it had clearly been renovated recently, the existence of an extractor fan hole with no extractor fan confirmed that and it was utterly superb, great shower, comfortable bed, useful sofa and a giant bloody whopping 50 inch tv! 'Woopee' I thought as a single traveller with nowhere to go that night, but alas there were NO English channels not even BBC news, this was the first time I've experienced this (perhaps I a spoilt) but nonetheless pretty annoying. The Wi-fi however was excellent and quick and each room it seemed had a balcony or terrace, perfect for a smoker. Again perhaps I've been spoilt but the lack of room service really pushed this from a good hotel to average, that was really annoying, a decent vending machine though...

So yes, all in all, its fine, i'd stay there again for only a night, any more than that and it would become tiresome I reckon. Staff seemed nice and obtained an ironing board and change for the aforementioned vending machine with a smile.

I think that Relais des Chartreux had its heyday in the eighties and hasn't moved since then. The rooms are basic but comfortable and clean, the restaurant is huge but the menu is VERY traditional and frankly, boring. Overall the hotel is OK and is certainly better than some other options nearby.

This is an older hotel which outwardly looks dated, however I was pleasantly surprised by the good standard of renovated room I was given, the shower and bathroom was particularly well done, the bedroom (huge comfy bed) was somewhat austere but clean, and not particularly stylish.
For a stopover (business trip) it was fine.
Breakfast was basic continental, not very good.
I didnt use any of what appeared to be extensive sports facilities.

eccentric hotel I've ever had the pleasure of staying at.
The staff are very pleasant and helpful, apart from one, the rooms are perfectly ok except when the heating breaks (they did eventually find me another room at 1/2 past midnight).
From the zebra stripe chairs in the bar to the motor racing picture in the restaurant it is a strange mix of all kinds of stuff that doesn't match and has no theme.
It has a certain gallic charm though which has led me back on several occasions.
You kind of have to go to know what I mean.
The used to have an upside down christmas tree as well, don't know if this past Christmas was the same.
Sums the place up really.
I'll be back though.
