I stayed in one of the small cottage like buildings in the grounds which was nice but the bathroom needs a little bit of maintenance. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Antoine was extremely helpful and helped organise a bike and rigg up a carrier to strap my backpack to.

We went there to dinner twice, and it was absolutely good, fresh cooked food with local ingredients yet modern dishes as well. The staff was very friendly and the location is uniquely decorated and located near front beach. Don't know about rooms but definitely recommend eating here.

Got room at the outer buildings and could not access the wifi which is frustrating. The rooms need to be maintained as they don't offer good value for money. Bernard was very helpful in terms of places to visit and welcoming.

I got a room in the outer building (probably an old servants quarters. It is quite old and doesn't give much value for money. The bed was okay but the bathroom was terrible - it had dirty walls and leaky faucets. I definitely wouldn't recommend for anyone to stay in the outer building unless it is renovated. The footpaths leading to the outer building are not illuminated, however, there are a lot of fluorescent bulbs illuminating the grass - which does not make much sense. That being said, the grounds are well-maintained, and there is a public beach right in front of the property. The food was okay, and the staff were very nice. The place has a lot of potential, it just needs to be cleaned up/renovated and organized better.

We spent 2 nights in the hotel. The place is nice, in the middle of a big garden (although it is a pity there is no direct access to the lake). Nothing was wrong but we were not so warmly welcome. Not a good place to meet other travellers and being alone at the bar on a Friday night can be a bit sad.
