We were looking for a stopover in Beaune and felt that with the ecstatic reviews on TA, this was the one. Hmmmmm, it didn't really live up to expectations. It is a B&B (not hotel) in a suburb of Beaune, a good 20 min walk to the restaurants in the centre of town. The room was ok in a 'shabby chic' style, no fridge provided and ice for our water was not possible. Breakfast in the conservatory had a good croissant each and tasty bread but the orange juice tasted as if it was uht juice and the fruit salad in mini killer jars was in syrup, not fresh. Coffee was self serve from a 'bean to cup' machine' which took ages and caused quite a queue. Overall, it was average but for the price we would go for a more convenient hotel.

Stayed: September 2013

So sorry that you found our hotel "average & shabby chic"...!!! From 35 years so many people are so pleased to stay in our house and have time to have a good breakfast and they became as friends.
We don't know who you are exactly and which room you had but we really hope that for the next time you have to choice another hotel. Just to say that we have fridge in junior suite & superior rooms and also a bar with cold water and several drinks... but you have to pay for these services.
You have luck and you don't realize that. THAT is average !

We needed a stopover hotel for our journey back to UK from Cannes. Chose this hotel based on reviews and we weren't disappointed . It is easy to find has plenty of parking and our room was very tastefully designed and the staff were very accommodating. The only comment on the room would be that tea and coffee making facilities would have been appreciated .Beaune is a great little town with plenty of restaurants to chose from. We would like to return to the area and spend a little longer and we would gladly return to the Grillon.

In retrospect the ones talking about how the staff changes from seemingly nice to grouchy if one makes a faux pas and has a glass of wine other than that bought from the hotel in the garden. We were starting in a walk leaving a canal boat and didn't wish to carry the bottle. The change was remarkable. We opted for walking a few kms before stopping for breakfast and felt like declining the breakfast was another offense. We had three rooms nothing special. Hubby and I shared a twin room (2twin) beds were uncomfortable.

Madame,
Family Grillon is very surprised by your reaction !
Legally in France in the hotels you can't drink your OWN drinks in the garden or around the swimmingpool (sorry ! but drinking wine in a glass for tooth is not so good !). And also hotels have to buy a Licence 4 for that .If you want to do that it would be better to choice a"chambre d'hôtes" or a "gîte".
Hotel GRILLON is working since 35 years so we think that we are not so bad !!

Just finished a stay with 6 cycling friends

The hotel exceeds its * ratings in every way, great rooms, lovely pool and superb service from the excellent al fresco breakfast through to helping us in managing our many cycling needs

Great base to explore the country and so nice to comeback to a warm welcome every night

Many thanks to all at the Grillon for making it a perfect holiday

Hotel Grillon is a super place to stay. The owners and reception staff are all very friendly and helpful and the rooms are wonderful - beautifully and tastefully decorated and extremely clean (our's looked brand new and had a huge bed too!). Outside is a pretty garden and small pool (not heated). You'll sleep well too as it's very quiet at night.

The old town of Beaune is only a short walk away (or free parking in a nearby square if you prefer).

The only criticism I could possibly make was about the tedious wi-fi system in the hotel. To cut a long story short, you have to keep logging in every so many minutes, and each time have to watch a short video advertisement before you can access the internet (which admittedly works well when you eventually get through). I spoke to the owner about it and he claimed it was a new legal requirement! Well if it is (and France has some strange laws...), Hotel Grillon is the only hotel we've stayed at in France that uses such an annoying system!

Thank you very much for your comments.
Also we are going to contact our webmaster to do something easier for you for the the wifi access.
Really in France the wifi in hotels have to be secured. But we will try to do it more simple.

This was a fabulous find of a hotel. Beautiful building, comfortable well appointed rooms and the service was fabulous. Breakfast was lovely although was an extra cost to what was quoted. Beaune is a lovely place and the hotel is a short walk into the town. The food we ate on the recommendation of the hotel was top quality and good value. The town has loads of wine shops and is full of character, well worth a walk around.

We stayed as a couple on a detour on route back from the Alps and it was well worth the visit!

Have just stayed at Hotel Grillon for the 5th time. The owners are very helpful. The rooms are superb and all individually decorated. Breakfast in the conservatory is always excellent with plenty of choice. Just a short walk from the town for evening dining. Would thoroughly recommend it.
