My brother and I stayed here over the weekend 19/22 May 2017 as we were going to the Moto GP in Le Mans. We had driven from Dieppe and were a little nervous about locating the hotel but we found it easily. Check in was efficient and friendly and they had room in the hotel car park for us (10 euros a day) which was very lucky as we hadn't pre-booked. I would recommend booking this if you do have a car, as parking was at a premium in the area directly around the hotel.
The room itself was very nice. Very clean, with lovely bathroom (and a great bath). Comfortable beds, and fairly quiet (although there was a little noise on the Friday night as the bar/restaurant downstairs was extremely popular).
We didn't use the bar or restaurant ourselves but they looked very nice. There are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity, as well as McDonalds / Subway and a very good supermarket Monoprix. Free wifi in room worked well, and there was a gym which looked pretty modern.
Chartres itself is a great town for a weekend away. Fantastic old cathedral, with a lovely old town. There is a light show in the summer evenings which was very good, and as I say, lots of nice bars and restaurants.Was friendly and safe feeling.
Next time I am in France with the wife, i will definitely bring her to Chartres and the Grand Monarque. less

We thank you very much for your last stay in Le Grand Monarque. Thank you also for sharing your experience with the internet users. :)
We hope that you had a very good time in our sweet home. Regarding your comment, indeed, the parking cost is 10 euros per night (on booking), we have a limited number of places and being located at the core of the city center, it is quite practical and cheaper than the public parking.
We remain at your disposal for your next stay with your wife and wish you a very nice day :)
