    « Not bad at all »

    Great room, great welcome, very good meal. Great pub opposite. For the middle of nowhere can't complain at all! Parking very easy at the time - November ... in the same street as hotel ... didn't go for breakfast as sleep well over leaving time but they were ok with that...

    « Quaint and Comfortable »

    Comfortable room with modern bathroom. Shower. Electrical outlets on both sides of bed. Refrigerator in room. Small closet. Wifi worked in room. Great location - easy to walk to all attractions and to local market. Nice breakfast with pastries, eggs, yogurt, fruit, tea/coffee. Friendly staff. Tiny elevator if you need one. Would stay here again.

    « All the amenities of an American hotel including AC »

    Nice, nice place on quiet side street in this ancient town. Convenient location to everything. Very pleasant staffing and decent breakfast. Thankfully there is an elevator altho very tiny but sure beat hiking several flights of stairs just to get to first level of rooms. Bathroom is very up to date.

    « A pleasant hotel »

    Great room (superior) with plenty of space large bed and refurbished bathroom. Pretty well in the centre of town but quiet at night. Everything easily walkable. Adequate breakfast but not as good as one should expect in a hotel in this price bracket

    « Great boutique hotel »

    Lovely place to stay if you want to make more of a stopover. Book the secure parking it's worth the extra to park off street (although we weren't actually charged) if you're heading north or south with a car full...

    « Great location.. Tired hotel »

    The location of the hotel was great. However, the hotel was tired. The carpet in the room was dirty, although the bathroom was nice. The room was also tiny. Breakfast was included, however it was also tired.. the cheese, ham etc looked old.. and they were very slow to restock the pastries, and only put 4 minis out at a time with maybe 15 people waiting to swipe them. The sausages were uncooked and the scrambled egg was ok. The yoghurts were warm in a dish, which I assume went in and out of a fridge until out of date... they were already off. A small mini bar like fridge would have helped this situation. The 24hr bar was interesting... You had to ask the receptionist for a drink which they may or may not have - Pot luck there! Also, if you come in late, be prepared to ring many times to get in again. Car parking was reasonable for secure parking in the centre, but there is free parking available up the road if not.

    « Very pleasant hotel in heart of Bourges »

    Ideal for an overnight stay on your journey south.Large clean refurbished room and good parking garage attached to the hotel Very handy for choice of local restaurants. Good choice on breakfast menu and WiFi easy to connect to.

    « Small but perfectly formed »

    Good place for a stopover. Well placed in the city, with main street and cathedral in walking distance. Small lobby, small dining room, small bar/lounge and tiny lift. However, it is all well appointed, clean, well maintained with friendly helpful staff. Room was adequate in size, quiet, air-conditioning, en-suite, wi-fi, TV and tea/coffee making. All we needed for our nights stay. The secure carpark is also small and spaces need to be reserved. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and quality. I would stay here again and explore more of the area.

    « Horrible experience don't go there! »

    This was a real disappointment it was far from the centre and Cathedial the staff were cold and unhelpful and recommended a horrible beer smelling bar/ restaurant for our evening meal but luckily ther was an ok restaurant across the road I would really recommend you avoid staying in this hotel.

    « Two nights »

    What a great little hotel. If you want parking you do need to book it in advance. However, my wife and I shared a room with a view of the Cathedral towers - quite splendid. Meticulously clean. The staff were courteous and helpful. For those who like a busy town, Bourges is not good on Sundays.

    « Best western Bourges »

    Our stay at Best Western d'Angleterre was lovely. The room was clean and quite spacious. Breakfast was included in our stay and was delightful. Parking was secure and undercover even though we were right in the heart of the town. Great location, easy walking distance to the Main Street with good restaurants, and amazing cathedral and beautiful parkland.

    « Excellent Location, Awesome Breakfast! »

    I was recently in Bourges and had the pleasure of staying in the Hotel d'Angleterre. The hotel is situated almost in the center of the old town, it is surrounded by one way cobblestone streets. Everything in the old town is within walking distance. If you google map directions to anywhere it "seems" that the driving time is double the walking time. About the hotel: The rooms are smaller than "American" hotel rooms, but when in France in the summer time you really will only sleep in the room. The bed was in my opinion high quality, along with the comforter. The room had a TV a desk, a mini fridge, and a really nice (in my opinion) bathroom. I actually preferred this bathroom to many "american" style bathrooms. The staff has many people to speak English either very well or broken, either way, I had no problems communicated with any of them. Which added to my comfort level due to my inexperience with the French language. I have to specifically talk about breakfast, because to me this was awesome. Coffee is important to me, so to others this section might not apply. The staff personally brings coffee to you if you ask, the coffee itself was great every day, now I'm not a Starbucks regular, and I'm not a coffee snob, but this coffee was great to me every day. The food was a variety of meats and breads (the breads and pastries were FRESH local fare EVERY morning). The scrambled eggs, I'm sure it's nothing cosmic, but they add cream or something to their scrambled eggs, and I swear they were the best scrambled eggs I've had in a LONG time. I found myself looking forward to my morning breakfast/coffee due to the freshness of EVERYTHING food related. They only had one small juice dispenser, which wasn't a big deal to me, because if you wanted anything else you could just ask. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

    « Delightful stop-off en route to Spain »

    This is a sweet place to stay in an historic town, with a beautiful cathedral.Rooms are spotless and beds very comfortable. Breakfast is good and one can reserve safe parking. The Centre of town is an amble away. A perfect stopover on a long drive. This was my third visit on my drive through to the Costa Brava. Excellent staff who are extremely helpful.

    « well situated in Bourges »

    The hotel d'angleterre is nicely situated for touring the city of Bourges. Literally right around the corner is the Palais de Jacques-Coeur and just down the street is the UNESCO Cathedral of St. Etienne. Also, it is close to the ramparts and many of the half timbered buildings of the town. It has parking (not as tight as I thought it might be given other reviews). The room was fine with free wireless and it had a nice enough breakfast. We also sat in the lounge after dinner and had a digestif. also a pleasant experience. The staff were both friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again if in Bourges.

    « Lovely hotel in lovely Bourges »

    We had a big very attractive room with a big bathroom and a great shower. Loved it!!! Location is very good and breakfast was delicious. The hotel has a lot of old world charm, but is nicely maintained.

    « Central spot in beautiful city »

    Bourges is the medieval equivalent of Bath, a heritage delight. The hotel is right in the centre near all the things you want to see, so very convenient. It is small, has a wonderful history of its own and aims to please it's visitors. It's staff are a delight. Rooms unpretentious, clean and comfortable and excellent breakfast. No restaurant but there is a very good restaurant within 20 yards and many more nearby. Wifi bit dodgy but that was being upgraded when we stayed. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night and plan to go back.

    « Great hotel, well located »

    Stayed here an route from Beziers to Paris. Spent a rainy day trying to see the old town, but that did not work out too well so we repaired to our hotel room with a bottle of Sancerre and some fresh pastries. We did visit the Cathedral, though it is big it is rather plain inside, it's a better sight at night when illuminated. There is no dinner at the hotel, but fortunately there are lots of choices close by.

    « Great location! »

    Located in the heart of the old town this is the place to stay when visiting Bourges. Friendly staff,and very clean comfortable rooms. A stones throw from the fantastic Jaques Coeur Palace which must be top of your visit list.

    « Very Comfort Stay Bourge, France »

    Nice, quite and comfortable hotel right in old city area, walking distance to shops and cafes. Hotel staff are friendly. There is parking on site and not recommended, the space is small and guest have to pay a small fee for overnight parking.

    « On teh way to Paris »

    We stayed at Best Western Hotel d' Angleterre for one night on our way to Paris from southern France. We wish we could had stayed longer since the hotel was one of teh best that we have experienced in France. Modern good size bathrooms (unusual for France), spacious rooms well furnished, excellent breakfast buffet (included) and an excellent location only 5 minutes walk to the famous cathedral. Parking overnight outside the hotel in no problem but only up to 9 am when stores open and teh car has to be moved. Strongly recommend it.

    « The perfect place to stay for a visit to Bourges »

    Located in the heart of the ancient half-timbered city of Bourges, this hotel provides a warm welcome, covered parking, comfortable rooms, and an excellent breakfast. As befits the name, the staff are English-speaking. With the WAZE GPS app at least, it was easy to find. (Due to the medieval layout of the narrow streets, with many being one-way, a GPS app is very helpful in the city.)

    « Business in Bourges »

    I can't fault my stay at the Hotel D'Angleterre. I have stayed their on many occasions and it has become my hotel of choice when staying in Bourges, The hotel is well managed by pleasant staff, provides comfortable accommodation and is well situated in Bourges providing easy access to attractions, shops and restaurants.

    « Elegant historic hotel with excellent staff »

    I stayed with my group in this elegant, centrally located hotel and loved our three nights there. The rooms are comfortable, with quality amenities, the staff is simply excellent: caring and accommodating. The hotel is (rightfully) well-known and booking ahead is essential.

    « Wonderful Historical Building transformed for comfort »

    This hotel is in the old part of town which is spectacular. It is a few blocks walking distance to many historical sights. The cathedral nearby is simply spectacular and much more intimate than visiting Notre Dame or Chartres. The staff was excellent and the breakfast was tasty. They were very accommodative and allowed us to take our breakfast to our room so we could relax and drink our coffee while waking up. We got the suite which had an extra bedroom and provide plenty of space. There is parking if you need to park your car, just be prepared that it is a snug space, but the staff is very helpful. Wear good walking shoes as these streets are very old stones....but it is wonderfully atmospheric. A wonderful place to chill out and also to use as a base to explore the many chateaux in the area.

    « Very comfortable stay »

    So glad we decided to head into Bourges for an overnight stay en route from Spain to Le Touquet, instead of staying out by the autoroute as normal. We pre-booked parking which I would recommend. The receptionists spoke good English which was helpful and all the staff were very accommodating. We had a classic double room which was very clean and quiet. We went out for dinner to Restaurant Sarl le Bearnais which is a pleasant little bistro about 10 mins from the hotel (see separate review). As other reviewers have commented it is an excellent hotel from which to explore Bourges. It is a great place to wander around and the cathedral and gardens are worth a visit. The breakfast buffet was very good with a mixture of hot and cold food. Would definitely stay again.

    « 3 Nights in Bourges »

    Visited Bourges for business. I would recommend that the Angleterre is well worth considering for business or pleasure. it is a pleasant hotel conveniently located in the town centre within easy reach of a multitude of restaurants to try out for your evening meal.

    « We will use this Hotel again »

    We came upon this Hotel quite by accident whilst travelling through France. We were delighted with the Hotel - it was clean, comfortable and in a lovely spot. The medieval town of Bourges is an interesting place steeped in history and the Hotel staff were able to provide useful information and recommendations. The Hotel provides a varied breakfast- we found everything we wanted- and an undercover car park is available at a small cost. We know we will return to Bourges and will use this Hotel again.

    « Very comfortable hotel in a wonderful location »

    We were visiting Bourges for just 2 nights in order to see its wonderful cathedral and the splendid Palais Jacques Coeur. The Hotel is 2 minutes at most from the latter and about 10 minutes from the former, and as a bonus we had a great view of the cathedral from our bedroom over the roofs. Our room and bathroom were of reasonable size, nicely decorated, very comfortable, and, despite the fact that we overlooked the street, quiet. The breakfasts were good and taken in a room which endearingly for East Sussexians like us was decorated with pictures of Alfriston Church, Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters! Whilst having no restaurant itself the hotel is within seconds of a good one l'Amphytryon, and a few minutes of many others. We were able to leave our car in the hotel's garage for 12.50 euros per day which seemed very reasonable to those of us used to Brighton parking charges. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Does attract some of the louder type of posh English visitors but it can hardly be blamed for that. Bourges is beautiful and this lovely hotel is right in its centre.

    « Gorgeous and elegant hotel right in the centre of medieval Bourges - magical! »

    This is a gorgeous elegant hotel right in the centre of medieval Bourges. We only stayed for one night on the way down to the south of France. We had a comfortable room looking out over the front of the hotel. Can't fault the amenities, the services, the breakfast or the cleanliness of the hotel and the helpfulness of the staff. We appreciated the efficient air conditioning in the room on a hot August night, and the secure car parking space not too far away. We ate a very acceptable meal in a nearby restaurant and strolled up to the cathedral and gardens and caught the light show at Jacques Coeur Palace - it was a magical stay and we were sorry to leave. We'd definitely come back again - this *has* to be the hotel of choice in Bourges.

    « Excellent service in classically French hotel »

    This is just the perfect hotel. Lovely, friendly staff, a beautiful setting and delicious breakfast. We have stayed there twice and have been more and more impressed with it. Literally every member of staff we have come across has been utterly charming and helpful. It is good value too considering its location and the stunning facade. A perfect place to break the journey down south. Makes the drive worthwhile.

    « Nice Location »

    This is a nice little hotel and about as close as you can get to everything important in Bourges. It is literally steps from the Palais Jacques Couer and a quick walk to the Medieval Quarter and the Cathedral of St. Etienne. The staff was efficient and the breakfast layout was adequate but nothing special. The room seemed a little dated but were clean and comfortable. Our bathroom had been updated to more modern fixtures with plenty of room. Would not hesitate to stay here again the next time we are in Bourges.

    « Magical hotel in a magical city! »

    An overnight stay en route to our holiday destination - and what a pleasant surprise this hotel turned out to be! Clean, comfortable and very welcoming, with all the amenities one could reasonably expect, including a private secure garage on site. It's easy to imagine that a Best Western hotel in one town may be the same as any other but that's not the case here - it's very original and full of character, with plenty of historical information and features on display. Bourges is a magical city with a wonderful cathedral, centre and fabulous illuminations. It's well worth a visit and the Hotel d'Angleterre is very well placed within the old town in easy walking distance of the city's many attractions.

    « Ideal base for exploring Bourges »

    This hotel is perfectly placed, just around the corner from the Palais Jacques Coeur and within walking distance of the many delights of Bourges: historic sites and buildings, gardens, museums, galleries and of course restaurants. The welcome and helpfulness of the staff could not be improved, the room was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. At the end of our 6-day stay we were sorry to leave.

    « Excellent hotel with great service and parking! »

    Yes you pay extra for the parking but it's worth it. The room - a superior double - was large well appointed. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and they speak English. The breakfast was one of the best we've had while in France. Loved Bourges!

    « A room with a view! »

    Wonderful hotel in a great location. Our room was spacious with a wonderful street view, in the morning we could hear the chimes coming from the Cathedral. Plenty of storage, comfy bed and great a/c! Great bathroom with a large counter and fully closing shower door, yay! Breakfast was very generous. We stayed here only one night, unfortunately. We have never stayed at a BW in the States but this is our second or third BW stay in Europe. If only they were this nice in the States!

    « Very nice stay »

    My stay was perfect. The hotel is very well situated at the heart of the medieval city centre, in a quiet street. The staff is lovely. The room, though not big, was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I particularly enjoyed the complimentary kettle with tea and coffee in the room. Breakfast is good. I definitely recommend this hotel. Just be careful when you, there are work in progress (but they do not begin before 9) in one side of the hotel. the other side is perfectly calm.
