Over the years, we've stayed at a number of places along the Cote d'Or between Beaune and Dijon, and Le Richebourg is the most luxurious we've experienced. Behind the deceptively plain walls of a large old country house (the restored Burgundian-style roof, if you take a good look, gives some hint of what's to come) is a remarkably comfortable hotel with large rooms, faultless internet, balcony or terrace space in many instances, and a friendly, attentive staff. Outdoor parking is available across the street, or garage parking in the main building can be had as well. We did not try the restaurant (it had its regular weekly closing the night we arrived, and there are so many other great places tucked away in small villages around the area) but breakfasts were very good, even if on the expensive side. Our room was comfortable (with very effective climate control) and offered a large terrace; the weather was only warm enough to justify using that space on one afternoon/evening; but when we asked for a sun umbrella on that day, one appeared at our door within about three minutes, dragged upstairs by the friendly and long-suffering desk clerk. (If I'd known she had to bring it up herself I'd have done things differently!). A variety of other services are offered (including laundry, at knee-buckling prices, but sometimes that sort of thing is essential!).
One minor thing to keep in mind is that the Richebourg does not accept American Express. That, by itself, is no great surprise in France, but at the Richebourg's price level I might have expected to be able to use AMEX. That said, however, it won't deter us from staying at the Richebourg again if we're in the area, and if we feel like pushing out the boat in terms of some extra luxury --
