    « Nice Place »

    Very comfortable, clean and attentive staff - would recommend you stay here if in town. Although on the main road is very quiet and parking easy - 4 mins walk into the town centre and good restaurants around.

    « Excellent staff »

    This was an overnight stop on the way back from Andorra, very nice rooms and the staff could not have been more helpful. We ate in the hotel and the food was excellent, much better than I expected. I would definitely recommend.

    « more for business than holidays »

    due to a problem with the car, uk assistance put us up here for a few days. nice sized room with aircon, very clean, good sized TV, wi fi a bit variable, nice bathroom. best to get down for breakfast early - leave it until 09.00 and there's not much left and bacon/sausage are a bit cold. good selection of teas. staff all pretty helpful with varying levels of speaking english. Evreux isn't really a touristy place but quite a pleasant little town nonetheless. if you're out for a drink, oddly everywhere seems to close at 8.30pm... handy hypermarket over the road, nice swimming pool just behind that too.

    « Outstanding Stop »

    I stumbled on this facility looking for a hotel in Evreux and am very happy I did. The staff was extremely professional in appearance and manner and very friendly. The price was more than I wanted but I decided to stay anyway. I'm very happy I did. The room was roomy and comfortable, extremely clean and quiet even though I faced a busy intersection/roundpoint. The WC was smaller than expected is the only complaint I would have. I would without question stay at this facility again and will probably book in advance on my planned trip next year. I had dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was excellent and the price quite reasonable. Service was friendly and excellent. Breakfast at this facility was also very good with a wide selection. I was extremely satisfied at this hotel.

    Good hotel in reasonable location; 10 to 15 minutes walk to main centre. Rooms nice and free WiFi throughout. Also Free parking. Staff very helpful. Good for overnight stop if heading south or back to channel ports. Also convenient for Givernay (for Monet garden). Evreux great cathedral but quiet night life.

    « Stop over on way back from Southern France »

    Excellent hotel, great staff, lovely big room with power shower & aircon, fine attention to detail throughout. Had a 3 course dinner in restaurant which was very good. Would highly recommend and would stay again!! We didn't have breakfast as had to leave early which was unfortunate. Thank you.

    « Fantastic »

    We stayed three nights on our way back to UK. Hotel is short walk to the beautiful town with plenty of shops. Across the road is a large supermarket with petrol station. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Room was air conditioned with a small fridge. We ate every night in the restaurant and the food was delicious. As we don't speak French we had a menu with English translation. Breakfast was good with a good selection to suit every taste. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.

    « Nice hotel but rough round the edges »

    We stayed for two nights as a treat after a few weeks of camping in France. The rooms and decor are nice and modern, but our first night was a dreadful experience. There was a problem with the air conditioning that started about 4am, it woke us up making loud noises every few minutes. We turned it off and opened the window as the room was too warm without it. The noise from the open window was dreadful with music and people shouting outside. We didn't manage to get back to sleep, it was the worst nights sleep of the holiday. I tried to explain this to the receptionist in the morning but she didn't want to listen and cut me off explaining. I was given a key to another room with no apology and no assistance. We moved rooms and this new one was fine except the hairdryer and shaver plug didn't work, which was inconvenient. We had dinner one night in the hotel and it was lovely, but they were obviously short staffed so the service was patchy. Do check the bill as ours had breakfast put on it but we didn't have it. All in all, it was okay when things worked but not worth what we spent. The first night of not sleeping and glib response really tainted our stay.

    « Smart modern hotel with welcoming staff »

    Just a few minutes walk from the centre of the town, this is a smart modern hotel with secure parking, spacious rooms, nice bar and great breakfast. Proper bathrooms with powerful showers as well. We didn't eat at the restaurant this time, but the menu looked good and the prices are reasonable.

    « EXCELLENT BUSINESS HOTEL »

    « good and modern »

    Nice welcome, nice room, nice visit experience. Really good value and nothing was too much trouble - all I can say if you need a hotel in Evreux use this one! This is a franchised hotel and the Franchise was every where, he should feel proud of his hotel and proud of himself!

    « Brief stopovers »

    We stayed overnight at both the beginning and end of a holiday elsewhere in France. Plenty of parking, though the hotel was very quiet.The reception staff were efficient and welcoming; the hotel is spotless, with pleasant rooms including particularly comfortable beds. Attractive dining room with responsive service and a very good breakfast. We had a couple of niggles with one room: the sink was partially blocked, and the hairdryer not working. The receptionist immediately offered a change of room, so no real complaint, but I'm surprised the cleaners hadn't picked up at least the issue with the sink in the first place. Would I recommend this hotel? Certainly-and 10/10 for Justine on reception for her energy and enthusiasm: she's a credit to Best Western.

    « TRAVELLING »

    Motoring through France we stopped for two nights at Evreux and found the hotel clean modern and bright. The restaurant was functional with a decent menu and the staff were polite and helpful. The wines were surprisingly good and reasonably priced.

    « A good hotel with one major problem »

    This is a good hotel for a stop-over in Evreux on the way to Calais. The Reception is friendly and the rooms are quite large and pleasant, with good decoration, comfortable beds and excellent shower and washing facilities. The 3 course dinner for 25 euros is good value for money and all in all we had nothing to complain about until the following morning We had negotiated a deal with breakfast included, but the receptionist knew nothing about it, although she did finally concede it. Because the bill when printed out was in tiny and unreadable type, we did not discover until we examined it with reading glasses a short while later (luckily before leaving) that we had been charged for wine and soft drinks at dinner which we did not have. When we returned with our queries it took a long time for the receptionist to re-imburse us for the extra 40 euros - as we were not given a bill to sign for our meal and there was no itemised record except for the erroneously entered items on the final account, it was difficult to prove and she had to take our word for it. We would have been happy to put this mistake down to a clerical error had it not taken such a long time to resolve. This was an awkward situation, arguing with the receptionist in the hotel lobby was not the ideal way to end our stay and left an unpleasant taste on an otherwise enjoyable experience

    « Excellent value in a business class hotel »

    Nice room, clean with modern amentities. Free wifi with good speed. lobby bar. Dining room with excellent breakfast. Good location, in central business district. Good parking on surface lot. Should be one of the first choices in Evreux.

    « Now a 4-star hotel at 3-star prices »

    Easy to find (driving a rental car), excellent facilities and staff service. Very good restaurant open until 10 pm. Large store and reasonablby priced fuel across the street. Strongly recommend for anyone planning to visit Monet's house and gardens in Giverny.

    « Good hotel but don't eat in the restaurant or order room service »

    Positive: -Comfortable rooms with shower, clean, nicely decorated. - breakfast ok although boiled eggs are cold Negative: -Don't eat in the restaurant!! I ordered steak with French fries, and they were horrible. Dark brown and not crunchy as they should be. They were burned, almost black. Just look at the picture I took. It's a disgrace to serve people these fries. -There is not a single electricity plug in the bathroom. I brought my own hair dryer and could not use it in front of the mirror. There is only a electricity plug at the writing table in the room. Very inconvenient. -Coffee maker in the room but no tea. Could be improved. -Only 3 things in the minibar: 2 waters and a coke. Why not more refreshments? I arrived and was thirsty and wanted a snack. Nothing there: no nuts, chips, ? Could be improved.

    « Excellent stay »

    We weren't sure what to expect in Evreux, it's not a city we've visited before. When we arrived we were glad hat we had chosen this hotel. Our room was large and well appointed, though it was near the lift we were never disturbed. Our welcome at reception was great, very friendly and this friendliness was evident from all he staff. The breakfast was super, lots of choice, dinner in the restaurant was very god. No complaints from us.

    « Three days in a remarkable city »

    A hotel that leaves no wishes open for the casual business traveler - fro ma fresh breakfast bar with ample selections, to a restaurant with surprising high quality of the menu and dishes (the lamb shank I consumed was absolutely fantastic!). Rooms are well designed for work and relax, with the exception of the rather small windows, that do not let in much natural light and might make some people feel a bit 'chamber-like'. The hotel is located across a supermarket and small mall - very nice for those who like to get their stuff at location. We walked into the city for dinner in various restaurants and the walk from the hotel (15-20 minutes) leads along very cozy street with small shops and a variation of architectural highlights of a town typical for the Normandy. Worthwhile to do the walk.

    « Perfectly comfortable place for a stop over »

    We stayed for just one night, as it seems many Brits do as they travel through France. The secure underground garage is useful,if like us, you have bikes on the back, and a car full of "stuff"! The direct lift takes you to a modernist reception with friendly English speaking staff. Very comfortable room and perfectly quiet night sleep was had. Breakfast at €14 is not expensive for a hotel and offered anything you might reasonably want. The restaurant was busy by 8pm. The food was good and the wine list very acceptable. Overall, very good value for money We will certainly use again

    « From hero to zero »

    Until the management takes control of the distasteful allowed practice in this hotel for smoking in every room despite the law and the signs at every level and on each room, I shall not rate this hotel any longer. The smell is awful and embedded into the linen, the carpet and the curtains. I use this hotel for convenience and I have changed rooms on numerous occasions without great success. Get a grip please, this is not the 1980's anymore!

    « Always good quality and comfortable »

    My wife and I stayed at this hotel several times during the summer. The staff are always polite and the rooms are always comfortable. We also stayed here last year and we will continue to do so whenever we pass through Evreux on our way south.

    « Lovely comfortable hotel with great food and drinks! »

    We stayed here for one nights stay on a road trip in France and it was lovely! Bedroom was very big, with a mini fridge, water in the fridge and the shower was lush! It is next to a main road but didn't make any difference to our stay. It had private parking. There were english and french menus for the dinner in the evening, room service including breakfast to the room as well. The cocktails were lovely, kir royale was my fav! The food was some of the best that I had out there, it was amazing. The steak was cooked to perfection and the buffett breaskfast was outstanding. The little pastries were to die for and there was a huge selction. The staff were really friendly and helpful. A great hotel.

    « GOOD, MODERN HOTEL »

    Stayed one night on our way from Dieppe to Perigord. Efficient check-in, despite language problems. Nice clean modern room, reasonable size. Good dinner in the hotel restaurant (couldn't be bothered to go looking elsewhere). A bit lacking on atmosphere, but pleasant wating staff and decent food. Really good breakfast in the morning to set you up for a long drive or hard day's work! Bit of a way from the town centre, but easy enough to find the motorway from here. Would return if in the area.

    « An excellent hotel »

    If you are looking for a good hotel, clean, efficient and with good food, this is excellent. I have stayed here on previous occasions and will continue to do so in the future. We put them to the test of arriving at 03.00 and were pleased to discover they were expecting us. It was presumed we were not going to leave the room till mid day - no problem!

    « Top notch hotel. Like no other Best Western that I have stayed at »

    Room: I slept in room 321. The Room was quite, as cold or as hot as I liked, spacious and welcoming. The shower was great and the bed very comfortable (king). Wifi was available in the room and at a decent speed rate. This room's window over looks the hotel's entrance. Staff: Top-notch! They were incredibly helpful and friendly. Our check in for 10 people took less than 5 min really. The front desk staff spoke fluent English and offered great local food recommendations. Location: Very close to food locations, but I didn't get the chance to look at sights for its proximity. The traveling Circus was only one block away though... Price: 89 Euro/night was very reasonable price for the room, location, and accommodations.

    « Excellent value for money »

    We stopped here on our way south and were ambushed by the level of service, food and hospitality. Smiles galore. Helpful hints and graciousness were everywhere. I had two expensive bikes on the back of the car and it was helpfullly suggested that I could keep store them on the car in the secure underground car park '(but don't tell the manager I told you!' ;) ) Now that is service. Delicious meal in the restaurant. Recommended.

    « On business with a cheeky weekend at the end »

    Always been using this hotel and restaurant whilst on business in Evreux. Best place to stay by a mile in town. Staff is extremely friendly and always go out of their ways to help. You feel very well looked after. The Maitre D is a very nice character full of attention when eating in his restaurant. The food is always excellent and varied and priced at a proper level: a full on three course meal of fresh cooked food of the local specialities either be meat of fish for no more than £17 quid add a bottle of a very nice Bordeaux wine this is just about £50 for a complete menu for two. Can't argue versus the quality. Highly recommend even for short stay. Btw car park outside is free whilst underground is available for a fee, perfect.

    « Excellent end to the holiday »

    Like others, stayed here on the way back to the ferry. From an unpromising exterior, we didn't have much expectation but as soon as we were inside, it was lovely. Staff very friendly, room excellent and restaurant really really good - and that was on a Sunday night. You can park for free outside or pay to use the locked underground car park. Very cheap deal through Expedia so great value all round. Opposite a big Cora supermarket should you want to stock up before heading to the ferry :-) Will definitely go back if we need a stopover again.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    Cannot fault this hotel on anything. Staff very professional, The restaurant is excellent with superb food at a very good price. Very competitive on price compared with some lower grade hotels. The menu changes and has a good selection of fish and meat. I cannot understand why the restaurant isn't full at weekends. The people of Evreux are missing out on a brilliant meal!

    « Nice Hotel - But »

    We stayed in the Best Western Palais de Congres twice whilst travelling to and from the South of France. The meet and greet was very friendly as were all the staff who were efficient throughout. The rooms are spacious, clean and very well appointed with good facilities. Most of all the bed was huge and very comfortable. We did eat in the restaurant on both occasions and the staff were helpful and efficient whilst the food was ok. Starters wise the oven baked Camembert was very nice but a big dish probably best shared. The cold beetroot soup with goats cheese was pleasant. Guinea fowl was well cooked although the salad was a mish mash and could have been better. All the mains were ok without being outstanding. Chef seems to have an obsession with potato soufflé/omelette's which are uninspiring at best. Sweets were ok and my wife liked the profiteroles. The wine list was good and fairly priced and we did have a cracking bottle of Sauterne. On both evenings the restaurant was fairly quiet. I came away with the sense that the food was being prepare without much enthusiasm and attention to detail. Sad because it could/should be better. Evreux is a nice town which is worth a walk around. The cathedral is beautiful and there are some nice shops. It wasn't busy even on Friday night but we liked it. In conclusion I would definitely use this hotel again. Although in no way is the food poor I hope the hotel can lift the standard of food to that of the accommodation and the service which are very good.

    « Last stayed here in 2013 »

    This is our second visit to this particular hotel, which is well situated for traveller going north and south. The private car park is immediately adjacent to the hotel The room we used was 108 which was very near to the lift. Our view out of the bedroom window faced side street and was quiet on a Saturday night The breakfast and evening meals were excellent, both in quality and quantity, representing very good value for money. We booked this hotel in advance and got a very good deal.

    Great value hotel with the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on away from home. My wife for the first time on our 32 day tour through France , Spain and Portugal slept all night without waking. Close to a delightful town with it's charming canal we certainly kept the best until last.

    Check-in was very good. It is within walking distance of a mall (right across the street) and within walking distance of the center of town. We enjoyed the bar/lounge and it's friendly patrons. The staff was very helpful and caring. If we return to Evreux we will stay here again.
