The best hotels for golf holidays in Versailles & St. Germain.

Hotel de France***- Versailles
Hotel de France***- Versailles

A small hotel right beside the Château that packs a big, Toile de Jouy wrapped, punch!

The Hotel de France has two distinct halves: on one side a bright and breezy bar and brasserie, on the other side there are 34 bedrooms in an overtly Parisian style clothed in the archetypal French wallcloth (Toile de Jouy) and bedecked with antique furniture. In many ways the hotel feels more akin to a Parisian apartment.

The brasserie side of the establishment does a brisk trade in French staples both indoors and out in its enclosed courtyard.  It also serves until late into the evening (very handy after a Summer evening round).  Just down the road, Versailles' market square offers a huge selection of dining spots.

The only thing lacking at the Hotel de France is a car park, however there is the vast public one in front of the château, several underground options or slots in the sidestreets around (free in August).

Residence du Berry - Versailles
Residence du Berry***- Versailles

The 18th Century townhouse of the Duc de Berry in the heart of old Versailles has been revamped and revitalised into a compact 38-bedroom town centre hotel.  It now provides simple yet solid accommodation in a very convenient location for enjoying the Château, the restaurants and bars of Versailles and is well placed for getting out of town to the golf courses.

The Residence du Berry has been pleasingly styled in restrained colours that go nicely with the original exposed beams.

There is a cosy bar (with pool room) and a bright conservatory-style breakfast room, with tables outside in the small courtyard on sunny mornings.  There is no restaurant at the hotel, but the Café des Arts just across the road is excellent and there are many many more restaurants nearby in Versailles’ “Latin quarter” and around the market square.

There's no car park either, however, there is a secure underground car-park close-by.

Le Versailles****

Very close to the Château a straightforward hotel that was created in the 1980s as part of a new apartment block, so the external appearance is a little austere!

Le Versailles hotel is comfortable and practical rather than super stylish.  Its advantages are its location and the fact that it has its own underground car park in the centre of Versailles.

Bedrooms, lobby and lounge are all decorated in a a modern fashion and bathrooms serve their purposes well.  There is a good buffet breakfast on offer each morning but no restaurant, however a small bar adjoining the Reception area.

A simple base for investigating Versailles' golfing and cultural attractions.

Cheval Rouge***- Versailles

A simple Versailles hotel, with two major plus points: location - just off the market square and free car parking in the central courtyard.

If you are planning on spending most of your days and nights out and about and are content with just a continental breakfast, then the Cheval Rouge may be sufficient for your needs.

The market square in Versailles is ringed with restaurants and brasseries that come alive every evening offering cuisines from every corner of France and a few other countries too!

Abbaye Des Vaux de Cernay****

In the depths of the Rambouillet forest, ideally situated roughly halfway between Le Golf National and Stade Français, l'Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay is one of France's most amazing country retreats.

L'Abbaye itself is these days an impressive ruin, but the attached monastery (coming up to its 1,000th birthday), has stood the test of time rather better.  It now forms a superbly preserved, beautifully furnished, unique, historic hotel.

There are four categories of bedroom from the simple Moines rooms tucked under the roof, to the spacious Rothschild rooms with their high ceilings and copper bathtubs; there are also two rather grand suites.

The restaurant La Table de Prieure serves exquisite food but is barely big enough for all the residents, so please book your tables as it is tremendously popular with the locals too!  However there are a surprising number of other restaurants tucked away in the little forest hamlets too.

Around the Abbaye are extensive grounds including with woodland walks, plus a large boating lake if you're feeling nautical.

Novotel Golf National***
Novotel Golf National***

Dominating the skyline above the 18th of the French Open course the modern Novotel was purpose built for golfers; the cheery air-conditioned rooms even have internal racks for storing your clubs!

The restaurant is very much a brasserie and serves up until midnight - very handy for maximizing the long summer evenings. Should you wish to dine out, there is a wide choice of restaurants, bars and cafés in Versailles, only 10kms away.

Just down from the Château of St. Germain-en-Laye on the edge of the forest of the same name, La Forestière has more the feel of a country house rather than an hotel. The associated restaurant, Cazaudehore, renowned in the area, extends through the grounds of the hotel and is a perfect spot for dining on summer evenings under the stars. 

The quiet setting of the hotel will ensure you enjoy a peaceful holiday yet you will be close enough to St. Germain to make the most of the Château, shopping, bars and cafés.

Pullman Versailles****

On the main boulevard leading up to the château gates the Pullman Versailles has a privileged position in town.  An hotel that is larger than it looks with 150 rooms and suites spreading through the neighbouring buildings.  Inside the the Pullman is a blend of funky public areas and more traditionally styled bedrooms.

The hotel has an almost atrium style lobby with a brasserie under the glass canopy and a very trendy bar off to one side.  There are also tables outside on the first floor terrace that are in use whenever the sun shows its face.

There is no pool at the hotel, but a small spa area has recently been created with a sauna and hammam; massages be booked too.

The Pullman Versailles benefits from its own secure garage; although there is a small charge for this convenience.

Being so close to Paris the hotel attracts a lot of business folk during the week; but at weekends (and during August) the hotel quietens down and prices fall.

Guest Comments

"Our trip was a great success and without exception everyone was very happy with the hotel (Le Versailles). The staff at the hotel were excellent and very helpful when we arrived a little earlier than they had expected. The Eurotunnel went without hitch and was on time each journey. Many thanks for all your help."
