Le Relais Bernard Loiseau
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Saulieu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We stayed at Le Relais Bernard Loiseau for three nights in September. It was an excellent experience. The rooms are clean and contemporary with classical details. Bathroom was spacious and enjoyable. Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were in Saulieau, so we did not get to spend time in the garden or at the pool, but they were beautiful to see and I am sure very pleasant to enjoy in better weather. Staff was very gracious and welcoming. Some of the staff were not as good with English but they all tried hard (and is as much our fault for not being good at French). We were pleasantly surprised by the small gift basket on the day we checked out as well.

One piece of advice for other travelers, I booked this hotel because we wanted to spend time in Beaune and I thought it would be fun to have an outstanding restaurant on site. We stayed for three nights total and made the drive to Beaune each day. It is a beautiful drive, but about an hour long - good for a couple days, would started to have felt too long though if we had stayed for more than 3 days. We also tremendously enjoyed a meal at the restaurant, but after seeing the cost for it, we decided to eat elsewhere on the following two evenings.

Le Relais Bernard Loiseau is among the very best that France has to offer, so much so that it is well worth the 100mile(150km) detour we make on our journey from the Channel to the Alps. As you would expect of an establishment with three Michelin stars, every detail is attended to. The service is attentive but never obtrusive. The rooms are extremely comfortable. Above all the restaurant is outstanding, blending innovation with French tradition.

Room Tip: A room on the upper floor overlooking the garden is perfect!

OK, so it is a bit pricey but belive me you get what you pay for. We had a very large double room with its own garden/seating area. A quick trip up the steps and you are in the hotel garden which has an outdoor pool, a spa, lots of seating areas and thoughtful touches for children too. I could not fault the room and the bathroom must have been designed by a woman - hurrah! For the first time ever everyhing was included and in the right place. It even had a little dressing table with great lighting and the hairdryer next to it. Simple things but so many hotels get it wrong. The only downside is that a three day stay can be a problem food wise - even I can't eat micheline food every night and there is very little else in Saulieu. However, we had a room picnic and the staff happily provided us with crockery and cutlery.

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms have the benefit of a garden area.

We stayed here for 3 nights during a trip to Paris and Burgundy. When planning our trip, we put a reservation on hold 6 weeks in advance, then found out cancellation would evoke a fee. Usually this hotel would be above what we like to pay, but the experience was one of comfort, charm and exceptional service. The location was further from "the wine trail" in Burgundy than we had anticipated, situated as it is in a nondescript village, but within driving distance from both Beaune and Chablis.
We enjoyed a beautifully appointed room with a huge bathroom and a terrace overlooking the garden. At night there was perfect silence, and the bed and linens were outstanding. All we missed was coffee in the room in the morning...of course available from the room service menu.
There was a gorgeous little pool area, and various nooks to enjoy a drink, served by the ever-attentive staff...there was no bar [but Yes to billiards and library], therefore we missed the opportunity to meet other guests.
We ate dinner in the restaurant on one occasion. The service was phenomenal and the food as to be expected for 3 stars...but memorable mainly for the price. Otherwise, we ate in the village...limited choice and hit-and-miss, being in other [way lesser] hotels nearby.
Overall, the ambience and service are top-notch...but at a price.

the room is quiet, the view on the garden is very nice, bathroom is superb, bed mattress a bit soft for us, the little entrance is very convenient, if you want to sleep well in the dark, ask them to not only close the curtains but also the outside shutters. The breakfast is ok, but their coffee could be better. The outside pool is nice and having a drink around is very relaxing, The service and the people are awesome.

Room Tip: All the rooms are différents so discuss with them to get what you will like the most, I will recomme...

Make no mistakes this is a very lovely hotel. We stayed in their smallest room and whilst compact and bijou it was very comfortable and well maintained. The hotel is a Relais and Chateau and hence the service is fantastic from the moment you arrive when your car keys are whisked away shortly before your car full of wine is whisked away so that the wine isn't if you get my drift. Its always handy staying somewhere that has a locked secure garage on the home leg from France back to the UK. The pool in the back garden is fabulous and a great place to relax with a drink after a long drive.

Bernard Loiseau restaurant has three Michelin stars and the menu degustation was a triumph of traditional french gastronomy....just not that exciting....brilliant but trad. Expect to pay for this level of gastronomic perfection....it was probably one of the, if not the, most expensive meal we have. had.

So we diverted across France just to visit this legendary restaurant for its food, but we didn't realise we would find such a delightful room, garden, swimming pool as well. The food was absolutely top notch as was to be expected, including the breakfast on the terrace the following morning. Frog's legs were fantastic, even if you were squeamish before you went!
