Spent a night here on the way further south and thought it was a great little hotel. The hotel was spotless and a large spacious bedroom. The kids loved the jacuzzi bath with flashing lights! We enjoyed the pool and had a lovely evening meal on the terrace. Would recommend it to anyone, and it is somewhere I would definitely...

We had a "garden room" with a patio adjacent to the gardens and pool. It is hard to fault the quality of the room, the food in the dining room or the convenient location 5 minutes from the motorway. However, including breakfast for two, this was a 140 euro B&B - and drinks with the (excellent) dinner were expensive. Thus...

We had excellent comfortable "garden rooms" with a small patio and seating and easy access to the swimming pool. The evening meal was excellent, the staff highly trained and efficient. Excellent menu choices available, good wine list. All in all an experience worth travelling for. Breakfast menu extensive with equally efficient staff.

We had a wonderful stay in this hotel. Rooms are clean, large enough, beds are very good. Breakfast is nice with plenty of choice. The pool is a good way of relaxing after a day out in the countryside. It's well located to visit the area, including going to the Puy du Fou themed park.
