Travel Blogs from Beaune
The Eurostar wizzed us back to Paris to Gare du Nord and we used the wonderful Paris metro system to find our ATC hosts in the Latin Quarter (the 5th arrondissement). It is a lovely part of town, nice and clean, quiet and near to so many options. Our hosts Sylvie and Pascal warmly welcomed us into their apartment and we felt immediately at home. Our bedroom window looked out from the fourth floor onto the inner courtyard garden below. Next door was ...

So I fired up the translator and composed a request to have our second night payment refunded based on the lack of cleanliness and the fact that we also had to listen to some real soccer goons drunkenly carrying while they watched the second World Cup match on the night on the campsite's outdoor screen. We of course expected some noise from that but this was just too much, too late. The ...

We met some interesting people over the weekend, and had a nice dinner out for our 39th wedding anniversary on the 21st. Coming back across the bridge into town that night, there was a “music festival” going on in St Jean so we wandered over that way for awhile, shared some wine with some English folks and listened to things like “These Boots Are Made For ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Luxe le Cep Beaune
Le Cep is true luxury! From the bellman who took our luggage up to the room to the reception staff who found/mapped wine tasting adventures for us in town - we felt like royalty. The room was huge (we even had a private balcony)with an enormous king-sized bed! Sure, it was pricey but we splurged and it was totally worth it! Not sure I would go back to Beaune (I found it a little on the "pretentious" side) but if I did, I would only stay at Le Cep!
The best place to stay in Beaune - if you can afford it
Hotel le Cep is without doubt THE place to stay in Beaune if you have the money to afford it.
Its position is ideal as a base for exploring the old part of Beaune.
Staff are extremely polite and helpful and there is no problem speaking English.
We spent three nights in this elegant and relaxing hotel.
When we arrived our cases were carried to our room and our car was parked for us.
Our room was on the ground floor, however the window was well above street level and we didn't feel overlooked.
The room itself was large, with a wooden beamed ceiling and chandelier style lighting, but it had air-conditioning and a modern bathroom. There were plenty of hangers, but possibly not really sufficient drawer space for us to completely upack.
The reception and other staff were friendly and efficient.
We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Beaune
Elegant and Welcoming
We just spent a week at Le Cep in Beaune, in the Burgundy region of France. The hotel exceeded all expectations. Our room was spacious and well air-conditioned, two characteristics that can be rare in French hotels. Since the temperatures reached 100 degrees in an unexpected heatwave, that room became a haven. The room was beautifully and elegantly decorated. I felt as if I were in a private château. Staff were all warm, friendly, and helpful. I speak French but all staff spoke English. I'd love to return the to hotel and the beautiful town of Beaune.
I cannot believe this is the same hotel garnering praise in previous reviews. My experience was completely different from other reviewers'.
Beautiful hotel in the center of town, close to everything. Spent the weekend Friday to Sunday(May 27-29, 2005). We made our reservations through the website of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and upon arrival we were treated royaly. Our room was large with a huge king size bed (slept like a baby) and a balcony overlooking a private courtyard. The bathroom was quite large (especially by French standards). The staff was extremely helpful in telling us all about the things to do in town and directing us where everything was on a map. They arranged a balloon ride over the vineyards for us which was amazing. Their resturant is very very pricey. Perfect for a special occasion dinner. All in all the hotel is a 10+ and we would definitely stay there again.
As a family we've driven down to the Cote D'Azur or the Alps on many occasions and each time we've stopped at the Hotel Cep in Beaune as it's pretty much halfway between Calais and the South of France
Nicer than we could have imagined
My wife and I spent 2 charming days at La Cep over Christmas. From the moment we arrived until the time we had to leave for the train station, we were treated with great service, superb professionalism and a true level warmth.
From a fantastic roaring fire in the sitting area to warm, wonderful guest rooms and an ideal location for being within walled city. La Cep has it all. We would stay there again in a moment.
most wonderful place. We stayed at Le Cep in June of 2003 for 2 nights.
The staff are friendly and professional and they spent a lot of time helpinmg me change some of my reservations at other hotels and towns and they did it with a smile. We had a room with 2 beds in it accomedating 2 adults and one child. The room was large, beautifuly decorated and comfortable. The hotel building is a total charm, old building with a lot of history. The court yard takes you to a different time and place.
Total Charm at a Great Price
Le Cep is a magical little hotel of top quality. Excellent rooms and public areas. Thoughtful and personal staff. Charm, charm, charm. I would return in a heartbeat. May 2003
