Friendly staff, great food, lovely hotel in good location. Ideal for a stopover on way back to UK especially if you have a dog . Definitely worth eating in the hotel restaurant as food fabulous even on a Monday night.

We booked the private room to celebrate a family birthday, chose the wine and tasting menu in advance and were not disappointed. Eric and his team provided a beautiful meal with the utmost attention to service. Next time we'd love to stay!

A charming establishment and great personal attention from the management. The hotel was surprisingly quiet when we were there and we are at a loss to understand why tourism is so slack at this time of year. The hotel was superbly comfortable. We had a really nice dinner and would love to go back again.

This was our fifth stay at Le Clos but this time we visited with my parents and their small dog because we wanted them to see the beautiful town of Verneuil sur Avre and to enjoy the fantastic hospitality offered by the owners of Le Clos, Odile and Eric. We knew what to expect but it was good to see...

Le Clos is a gem. This upscale boutique hotel is wonderful in every way. Erik and Odile think of everything from a warm welcome to beautifully decorated rooms to impeccable service. The cuisine is refined and delicious - bravo to the chef! A perfect place for a romantic get-away. This is our fourth visit and we'll be back again soon.

We arrived at Le Clos after a 6 hour drive from SW France. The proprietor was enthusiastic and warm in his welcome. We had a menu with a wide selection of teas & coffee from which to choose, and at at 4pm I was also hungry. Alas, 'nothing to eat' was the swift response and all that could be found...

We love Le Clos, as is obvious from our many visits and reviews. It is beautiful and the food is excellent but more than this, it is run by two of the nicest hoteliers you could wish to meet. We took my father-in-law over for a weekend recently. He is a splendidly fun 86 year old who is pretty fit...

We have not had the opportunity to visit Les Clos recently so it was good to get back. The building and the gardens are immaculate, and make a great first impression. We booked room 17, a garden room, as we had our dog with us. This makes for easy " walkies" in the morning. The room was to the highest...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Le Clos, the story start in 1770 when the nuns of the Abbey of Saint-Nicolas bought the land under the old regime called "The garden of the Beguine". Bordered by the remains of city walls and a tower called the white tower, the plots became peasant gardens. A century later, in 1886 - under the protection of a gentleman benefactor of the Abbey of Saint-Nicolas - a Castle was born. The Benedictine nuns began hosting families opened a school for girls of the abbey. The round tower and the square pavilion, pepper-pot roofs and four slopes, false battlements and tall chimneys, windows and doors decorated with braces, are a harmonious example of architectural style of Viollet-Le-Duc. The mansion was an inspiration for the architect to draw on the exceptional tower houses that have adorned the town of Verneuil since the fifteenth century. In gothic style, the walls come alive with color. The "checkerboard", so characteristic of the region, combines the dark brick called "flamed" orange brick and whitewashed plaster, while flints and brick diamonds offer subtle variations in the tone. The sisters welcome families into the 1960s. In 1961, it was renamed the Hostellerie du Clos. In 2007 it became Le Clos. The castle original will require ongoing renovations, modernization and decoration but will preserve its original spirit. In the spring of 2015 will rise to a former conservatory Gustave Eiffel style of 100 sqm, facing south with a view overlooking the park. It will host the breakfasts, a restaurant that showcases the "Bistronomie" tea room, reading and rest ... A relaxation area with a swimming pool cover, bio sauna, bio steam room, fitness , energy showers ... Finally a south-facing terrace on the ground floor equipped with sun and a beautiful place "nose in the grass" to eat more lightly. Today, the castle of fifteen rooms and suites located in a park of ancient trees has beautiful botanicals, beautiful and loyal birds, four hives with bees pollinate flowers and tree gardens. He is a member of Relais & Châteaux since 1975 and this year celebrates its fortieth anniversary of belonging to this great association ... more   less
