Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed for a long weekend a the Moulins du Duc courtesy of one of those boxed package deals that we were given as a gift. We were unable to get there by the 6pm required checkin on Friday night (it is after all 5 hours from Paris) and therefore missed the dinner. but we had phoned at 5pm to say we would be arriving late and said that we'd try to make up for the dinner during the weekend. Saturday and Sunday were enjoyable but the wait at the Restaurant Raphael was a bit long and they offered us the identical menu for our 2nd night. When we said we had already eated that menu, they offered us another choice (without any mention of price supplements).

When we inquired on Sunday about "making up" the missed dinner from Friday night, we were told the restaurant wasn't open for lunch on Mondays and therefore we were out of luck.

At checkout time we were presented with a bill that was much more than we expected, and we had been charged extra for menu items they had offered us as choices, like the crepes suzette.

When we wanted to discuss the charges further with the manager/owner, she was not available. We refused to settle our bill and asked her to call us.

We never got a phone call from her. Instead our credit card was charged and we received a very nasty email from the owner. When we responded back with out version of events, we again received a very nasty reply, alluding to the fact that they didn't need our good recommendation to survive.

Well, the accomodations (albeit the small sized rooms) are charming and the wait staff is very nice. I agree that breakfast is a bit on the small side. But unless this hotel's management changes their attitude and doesn't try to cheat their guests, they will not do well.

We had such a wonderful time here that I was amazed to see people on TA giving it a terrible rating, but a couple of their points are valid, and I will try to explain. First let me say that my wife and I would stay here over and over again if we could. The property is an old mill setting with the most bucolic scenary you can imagine. The check-in, the lounge, and the dining rooms are in what was the primary mill. Then there are a number of outbuildings, which in the day, were obviously used for storage, and these were converted to guest rooms.
The property used to be a Relais and Chateau many years ago, and slipped pretty badly over the years. The current owners, a husband and wife bought it a few years ago. He is the chef, and she the hotel manager. They are pouring their profits back into the property, and slowly but surely upgrading every aspect of it. There is still some work to be done. Let's start with the rooms.
We were shown to our room and, as an unhappy TA contributor noted the room was underwhelming. I had booked one of the cheaper ones. We asked the desk for a different room, a little more expensive, and we were very happy. Bigger lighter, nicer furniture, etc. A French actress, who we were supposed to recognize but didn't, was staying next door. The weather was not so nice, kind of cold, and both our first and second rooms seemed a little damp (they are in old stone buildings, after all), but there was no thermostat to turn up the heat. Turns out one must call the desk and ask them to do that. We learned that on day two. After that the room was nice and toasty. Management should tell people that upon check-in. Oh, and there is a computer for guest use.
Back to the property. A gorgeous pond is in the center of the property with a stream leading to it, and out of it, which powered the grinding mill in the old days. The owners keep rabbits, chickens, a cat, a dog, a cow, a pony, and a llama on the property, and there are walking trails.
The restaurant is wonderful. The chef is terrific. We ate there on two of our three nights, and we were very happy we did.
So, all in all, I say to those folks who rated this place "poor" or "terrible," I sure wouldn't want you rating anything I did as you appear to overlook everything that is terrific here. Sure, a top-notch room is most important, and they do have work to do in this area, but this property is fabulous.

We stayed here in the autumn for the first time. We were immediately struck by the beauty and seclusion of the place. The room that we were given was very comfortable and quite spacious. We were slightly puzzled to discover that there was a machine to make coffee and tea, but had we wanted tea, there only one teabag and a note informing us that we could get another for €1.50 from reception.
We had booked dinner for 7.30 so decided to wander over and get a drink at 7pm. The bar was unmanned so we asked at reception if we could get a drink and see the menus. We were told that someone would come from the restaurant at 7.30 with menus and to open the bar! I thought that maybe I hadn’t understood this so went down to the restaurant where it appeared that the staff were having their evening meal. The Maître d’ hotel ushered me away with the same message, so we waited until 7.30. When we eventually got the menus and our drinks, I discovered that a glass of white wine was €10. We are fairly used to expensive hotels but this did seem extortionate. Of course our 7.30 booking for dinner was rendered irrelevant although the delay was no more than 30 minutes.
Dinner was perhaps the main and most redeeming feature. The food admittedly was expensive but superb and worth the price, but breakfast was a bit of a disappointment. Although perfectly nice in itself, it was somewhat traditional and limited which meant that only one of us could have a particular item from the bread/pastry plate and the fruit selection was limited. I have had much more choice and better breakfasts in less exalted establishments.
I have read the reviews which seem to vary quite a bit. I would have to say that this is a lovely hotel with exceptionally good food, but we got the distinct impression that maybe they take themselves too seriously and don’t put the guest at the top of their list, and the bar prices are too high.

Where do I start with this place. At a first look this place seems lovely and has nice beautiful views and then everything falls apart.
We stayed for 4 nights which I would strongly advise against. 1 night max is enough.
We had dinner the first night which was above expensive. I payed €7-€8 for 25cl of beer. We found out you can buy a 10 pack down the road for €4.
We speak little French and both got upset at dinner as we could only order mains but received starters. I won't go into detail but it was rather upsetting considering the cost.
I had both of my Nintendo ds's stolen from my room along with all my games. Over £300 worth of equipment and they wouldn't do anything but ask the other staff. No cctv. No log of who went in our room. No help. Nothing. Turns out this will be an expensive holiday.

it's a real pity: such an astonishing environment and landscape, spoilered by a room quality and service simply awful.
Room are small, decorated with cheaper fonrniture I've ever seen (ikea is far better).
The window of our rooms did not close perfectly (and we were at ground floor).
The bathroom was incredibily dirty (spiderwebs on the walls) and bad-smelling.
The service, same story: a 1 star hotel service.
We asked for a glass of white wine, (10 euros) we waited a very long time to have a warm glass of wine, without any excuse.
And the the prices, are stellar.
I strongly do not advice this place.

After reading some of the glowing comments by a number of other reviewers, I'm wondering if we were staying at the same hotel! My husband and I booked a two-storey "Romantique" suite and -- based on the website photos (and the price) -- had high hopes for this place but we were very disappointed. The first thing that hit us when we were shown our quarters was the musty odor, like a damp basement in need of a good airing. I realize these are old stone buildings located on a mill pond but surely something can be done to dry them out! Our cottage was also dark and cold -- I spent much of the time hudded by the lone register staring forlornly at the massive but non-working fireplace, which was occupied by a small lamp and a weird decorative lantern. Furnishings were spartan and an utter hodgepodge, as though they'd been picked up at a succession of rummage sales -- naugahyde couch adorned by a stained fleece blanket, cardboard trunk filled with dog-earred paperbacks and childrens' books, faux zebra plush rug draped over the hearth (and no rugs on the cold tile floor), incongruous shiny curtains...Dinner at the Restaurant Raphael did little to lift our spirits. When we appeared for our 8 o'clock reservations, we were turned away from the restaurant and redirected up to the lounge, where we were served an unpromising amuse bouche and given menus to peruse. About 15 minutes later we placed our orders with the host, expecting that he'd reappear fairly promptly to escort us down to our dinner. Another 15 minutes passed, then 30, then 45, but still no sign. There were about eight other couples on hand, all of us sitting in rather strained silence. I began to have visions of some Fawlty Towers-like disaster happening below. FINALLY, 90 minutes after our initial arrival, just as we were about to bail and drive into town, our host reappeared without explanation and we headed to the dining room. It offered stunning views of the river (though of course by then it was nearly dark) but but was also plagued by the dank basement smell. The food, served with a little too much pomp for our taste, was okay but forgettable and certainly not worth the ridiculous wait. Breakfast the next morning was just plain dismal: tinned juice, stale bread, a croissant, and some sweet commercial yogurt.

The sad thing is, this place -- with its idyllic location and charming old buildings -- has the potential to be really wonderful, and I do sympathize with the owners, who probably bit off more than they could chew and were reduced to doing things on a very tight budget. But it needs a lot more work to live up to its claims of being a 4-star accommodation.

First of all we were not been told the truth. I booked the hotel to stay there for a week with my mother-in-law. We came from Paris by train, we did not have the car. We were told on the phone that nearest beach is very close, that it's possible to walk and that buses go to and from the beach regularly. On the hotel's page there an erronous information that "it's 3 km from the beach". It is not true. The nearest beach is 11 km away and it's impossible to walk everyday. Buses go only from the nearest village (3 km away) and only once a day. If we knew all that, we wouldn't book the hotel. When we asked for help we were given the feeling that we were bothering. The only nice person working there is Matthias who tried to do his best. At the end of our stay we were told by the owners that in fact there is a beach 3 km away! they gave us the adress and fortunatelly we didn't go because... the beach doesn't exist! We talked to local people before and checked google maps.
The breakfast was mediocre. I cannot eat much sugar and the only thing available for me was ham from the supermarket and plastic cheese. The only bread that this 4 star hotel serves is white baguette that looked liked bought at nearest supermarket. I asked many times for cottage cheese but only get it after couple of days. I did get extra tomatoes and quinoa once - that was nice.
It was impossible to communicate with the owners who told me I was too demanding. Even confronted with obvious misinformation on their page, they refused to help and became agressive.
The restaurant is pretentious and over priced. The food is simply not good except for fish.
I definteley do not recommend this place. It is my worst hotel experience ever.

We arrived at the moulins at the end of August 2014, after a busy 2 weeks family holiday on our way back to the ferry the next day. We just stayed one night, the weather was perfect and we sat out by the lake sipping our cocktails before dinner. The setting is magical and we found the rooms comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. We would like to return, but I am disturbed by some of the very negative comments I have read. Obviously the management have some problems to overcome, but one can only comment on our personal experience which was excellent.

We reserved 60 days in advance for two nights, and the hotel confirmed in writing. We called around 5 pm to say we would be late arriving due to traffic and were told not to worry, our room was ready and waiting for us. A hotel rep met us in the parking lot when we arrived, saying we could not go in the hotel due to "a booking problem," but another hotel had been arranged for us and we could return the next day for our second night. We left, as it was clear they had not honored our reservation but had given the room to someone else. In such a remote location, this was not a happy ending. When we arrived home we had an email saying they regretted they had a plumbing problem in our room since early that morning that could not be repaired -- not at all what I was told when I called at 5 p.m. or what we were told in the parking lot when we arrived.
We had the impression this is a regular practice at which they are quite adept, as one hardly has a choice but to accept the insult. A real vacation spoiler. One can only wonder if the "other" hotel (there are only 2 in this town that I know of) is also owned by the same people to serve this specific purpose.

A couple of years ago we wanted to make a reservation for their restaurant, as we live in the area. It was made quite plain to us that they did not welcome young children, we therefore booked elsewhere.
A few months ago we were with a group (7 people) mixture of French/English adults, no children with us. We were going there to have afternoon tea and thought that we would look at the garden and ponds on the way in. We had only taken a few steps when a member of staff rushed out and told us we were on private property and asked us to leave.
With that attitude we obviously decided not to enter the establishment and left.
Needless to say we shall not be returning.
