Hotel To Open At The Palace of Versailles

Fancy living like royalty? For an overnight stay fit for a king or queen, you could soon be eating cake, drinking champagne and taking a stroll around the grounds of the stunning Palace of Versailles.

The former estate of the French monarchy is said to be considering converting three of its run-down mansions into a luxury five-star hotel in an effort to boost revenue. While you won’t be able to stay in the sprawling castle itself, many rooms will overlook the famous Orangerie garden.

The hotel will likely be called the Hôtel du Grand Contrôle, and is scheduled to open sometime in 2016.
