“Beaune B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2011

Jocelyn and Salvatore are lovely and gracious hosts. Location is perfect - on edge of ring road surrounding old walled city with off street parking behind locked gate. It was a tough go at first to find the right entrance - GPS dropped us beside one of the rooms on the street - but once we phoned, we were guided into the gate. Breakfast each morning was excellent - with fortification one morning vai Sal's special morning starter. One another afternoon, we were invited to share a fine bottle of burgundy with our hosts. Overall, an absolutely lovely stay in a wonderful French country town.

We stayed at this great B&B for 3 nights upon the recommendation of a local guide we had booked for a day. Great location, huge rooms & bathrooms, impeccably clean and close to everything. As described, Jocelyn and Salva are the french grandparents you always wanted. We have limited french and they have limited english, but not a factor really--if you're staying here and in Beaune independently, you've most likely dealt with the language barrier all ready. Good breakfast included. On our check out day we had an early train, Jocelyn had our breakfast ready at 6:30 AM & Salva even drove us to the station-which is only an easy 10 minute walk. I will mention one thing, not a factor for us, but I see it mentioned on trip advisor all the time--street noise-they cleaned the streets or picked up the garbage at around 6 am daily (it seemed) so there was some noise, and traffic started at around 7:30 am--you're on the ground floor of the ring road and one of the main entrances to the centre-ville BUT-- for us the advantages and amenities of this B&B far outweighed the noise.. and remember YMMV.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Hortensia, which was large and bright.

Stayed three nights in the Louisiana Suite with my wife and we had a wonderful time there. Location is perfect, couple of steps outside the city center, both practical and quiet by night. The room is huge and very confortable, with nice beds and a incredible bathroom (a real miracle in France). The only thing it lacks is a minibar.
The hosts, Salva and Jocelyne are a lovely couple. Very warm, friendly and communicative, they provided us with great recommendations for stores and restaurants.
We loved our stay and would definitely stay again in the Octroi!

Room Tip: The Louisiana suite its really neat, but it's on the second floor and reachable only by the stai...

We stayed here for 5 nights in the Sophora room at the start of May - the phots on the website show the room exactly as it is - charming, clean, well maintained and comfortable.

The B&B is located at the edge of the main town of Beaune - Beaune is relatively tiny, so everything in Beaune was within walking distance from the B&B. Even though the property is located on a fairly main road, the room was very quiet as the buildings are not at the front of the property. The owners were lovely and tried to engage us in conversation, which was pretty difficult given we only spoken very limited French!

Breakfast was very simple and, out of all the breakfasts we had during our European trip, probably the least exciting.

Tip: parking is surprisingly hard to come by in the town, so if you're going somewhere in Beaune town centre, just walk and leave the car at the B&B.

Great location in the heart of Beaune. Shops, restaurants and cellar doors barely a short walk away. Very friendly, warm, generous hosts and beautiful rooms. My husband and I would definitly stay here again. Shame we couldn't communicate more with Jocelyn and Salva, due to limited french. We had a fantastic time and breakfast was delicious!
