From the scenic vineyard views to the extensive wine cellar, world-class spa and Michelin-starred restaurant, the Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa is the dream wine-country retreat.
As you sign the guest book, you may ponder how many hotels can claim Napoleon and his entourage stayed within their walls? The Royal Champagne was one of the Emperor’s favourites and he stayed here on his way to the sacred city of Rheims, coronation seat of the Kings of France.
Some things haven’t changed. The hotel is still the perfect base for a wine tour of this UNESCO-listed region; and still treats its guests like visiting royalty, offering them exquisite food at Michelin-starred Le Royal restaurant and a wine cellar that includes almost 300 different Champagnes. The décor is a modern take on the classic French style - homely, half-timbered buildings with ceiling beams, pedestal tables and roaring fires that lend a cosy feel.
