We stayed at the hotel in August 2020. I initially booked for 5 days but after staying there for one night we decided to check out after three days. It would have been the day after but felt bad that we had initially booked for five nights. We stayed in room 4, which overlooks the front garden. A garden I hasten to add that guests can’t use when the independent restaurant is open. That is some lunchtimes and most evenings. We were met by the owners on arrival on a particularly rainy night. The reception is only open between 8am and 8pm there is no room service whatsoever which you would expect from a three star hotel. We were handed a bottle of water and told that despite an eight hour drive there was no food available. Apparently guests wanting to eat in the restaurant need to book three months ahead. It would have been nice to have known that at the time of booking, it would have certainly had an influence on whether we stayed there. When we went to our room, we could see that the rug just inside the door was curled up which was an immediate trip/fall hazard. Couldn’t understand why the rug hadn’t been turned around to avoid an accident. The room had two small double beds in, they were very low down and very hard and uncomfortable. There was a mish mash of cheap white ill fitting furniture in the room, along with a tatty ironing board . There was no dressing table or mirror in the room either. A tv sat on the desk which showed nothing in English at all. The bedside lamp on one side of the bed was tiny not giving enough light to read by. There were two paper cups to hold a hot drink and two thin plastic glasses for water. ( these were not changed during our three days there) We were told that China cups and glasses weren’t available because of COVID! Strange when glasses and china were being used elsewhere in the hotel. The room was not cleaned or attended too either during our stay, again because of Covid! I could understand the room not being attended to if we were in it, but once we had gone out why couldn’t the room be cleaned etc with people wearing appropriate ppe? We did put the plastic bag from our bin outside but this was not replaced. The en-suite bathroom had a Lidl hand soap and cleaning products which is hardly worthy of a premium room. In order to turn the shower on you have to lean under the shower as the screen is fixed to the bath. It also took an age for the water to disperse. After checking in we asked where we could get a drink. The waiter suggested us to sit in what looked liked an anti room by a small bar. We had a bottle of wine. I asked if there were any nuts,olives which is normal in France when ordering drinks. I was told there was nothing. We sat on a tiny sofa ignored by all the staff, watching them cut up bread and prepare food for the restaurant. All in all this hotel is not worthy of three stars. It’s no more than a B&B and at €90 a night for the room only a bit expensive. Breakfast is €9 per person for a very small continental breakfast. I would not recommend this hotel and I certainly wouldn’t return.…
We stayed here recently and had a fantastic time. Our room (no 2) was large and beautiful, with all mod cons. The bathroom was also big with a separate bath and all singing and dancing shower cubicle. We had a lovely view over the front garden. The owners are very welcoming and hands on. Their breakfasts of yoghurt, fresh bread, mini pastries, jam and plenty of coffee were delightful eaten on the terrace outside. We enjoyed exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside and there are lots of interesting places to visit. We highly recommend this hidden gem of a hotel!
We stayed at the beginning of August for 2 nights. This was our second stay here. I need an accessible room. They have two. Very modern bathrooms with everything you would need. We were very comfortable. Adrian made a point of checking that we had everything we needed in the room. The breakfasts are very filling with copious amounts of tea and coffee. There is a wonderful restaurant within the hotel run as a separate entity. Definitely worth eating there. Lots to see and do in the surrounding areas. We were just passing through but will definitely be back for a longer stay. Couldn't fault it.
The English hosts, Adrian and Sharon welcomed us at the door and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, happy and welcome. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them. They recommended towns to visit such as Perigueux and Brantome and this amazing mussel and sardine festival in a neighbouring village, Corgnac, where we had a fantastic night. They also directed us to this amazing lake with a bar and live music, an incredible setting to swim, eat and relax. The rooms in this 18th century coaching inn were large, comfortable and immaculate with exposed beams and a history lesson around the corner from our host Adrian. We will definitely return to this wonderful hotel which I recommend unreservedly.
We came across this wonderful hotel by chance and so glad we did Highly recommend very friendly helpful owners nothing was too much trouble All rooms individually styled all with en-suite bathrooms very clean and tidy We enjoyed a sunny breakfast on the terrace and the restaurant is outstanding even if you can’t get a room food here is wonderful
