Restaurant good, rooms less so. My wife and myself stayed in one of the rooms whilst also taking in the very good taster menu and wine flight at l'enclume. We arrived and were shown to our room but alas the escorter failed to explain the heating or indeed anything in the room. Later, when we got cold, we had to...

We stayed here for one night as part of the whole l'enclume experience. Full taster menu in l,enclume restaurant, overnight stay in a superior room and breakfast in rogan. I have already reviewed l'enclume restaurant, this review is for the room. We had a superior room in l'enclume house, it was decidedly average. A generous size, spotlessly clean but very...

I had read a few reviews of the hotel, with noise issues etc, however we have the most lovely room, totally wonky, felt like you were drunk walking round the bed, but beautiful room and small hotel, we loved it. Bathroom great too as was the shower. The breakfast next door in Rogans in the morning was just brilliant too....

This is a long winded review, so I apologise in advance. I would also like to point out that I have not actually either stayed nor eaten at L'Enclume, this review is based purely on my experience with this establishment prior to a stay, that in the end, never took place, due to my disappointment with the service. In August...

It was about two and a half years since a previous visit and if you scroll back far enough you will find my review. No need. This was another stunning experience of 18 courses that lasted 3 hours. They make it relaxed and sophisticated at the same time and I could not fault a single plate. I have no idea...

One word - fabulous. We stayed in the deluxe suite which was beautiful. Spotlessly clean with some very sweet Christmas touches here and there. We had the tasting menu in the restaurant in the evening. Staff couldn't have been more attentive, friendly and extremely professional. I am one of those 'fussy eaters' (I don't eat red meat) so I was...

We booked this room as we were dining at the restaurant for our anniversary. Reasonably priced and located in the beautiful village, about a three minute walk to the restaurant. We were in a standard room which was lovely and very quaint. The room was very clean and well equipped. The bed was firm and we even had a tiny...

A perfectly acceptable room for the purposes of an overnight stay. Clean and spacious and smack in the middle of the village and a 3 minute walk to the restaurant of the same name. Bed was huge. Staff friendly enough. Very reasonable indeed when booked as part of a package. Low water pressure was a bit of a pain (...

Located in a small town, we arrived in the evening (very dark) being in a rural area. We saw their restaurant (L'Enclume) on the way and asked for directions. They are not located next to each other. The hotel is not the easiest to spot but just ask around and will find it. Nice small shops around the hotel, free...
