We stayed in the Blue Room for 3 nights - it was spacious and very comfortable, especially the bed. Plenty of storage for clothes etc. I loved the shower in the en suite bathroom and the towels were lovely and fluffy. We really appreciated the free wi-fi and made good use of it. Yvonne is the best host ever and really went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. We particularly loved her cooking - delicious breakfast which was different every day, and the evening meals were fabulous, served with Champagne and wine. Chloe and Lucy were so lovely and they both help out in the B&B. It was brilliant having dinner with other guests in the B&B and we enjoyed the conversation and friendship. The B&B has a lovely garden and we parked our car in the small courtyard. If you visit, I'd recommend more than one night if possible because there are some lovely places to visit. We loved walking in the forest, and visited some Champagne houses whilst there, including Moet & Chandon which was fascinating. We also hired an electric motor boat and enjoyed sailing on the River Marne - will take a picnic and bottle of Champagne with us next time!
All the family are native English speaking and also speak excellent French and this really gives this B&B the edge over others. Jiles accompanied me to the garage in Verzy and explained that the engine was losing power when we went uphill. This was fixed the same day with a very reasonable bill from the garage. On the way back to England, our car gearbox failed and we had a very lucky escape as our car went into a spin on the motorway. Jiles and Yvonne were a massive help and provided interpretation services for us when we were trying to sort out the situation after being towed to the garage. Our car was a write-off and we were stuck there with all our camping gear etc in the car. They even offered to come and pick us up and take us back to the B&B and transport our things back to England. We didn't need to take them up on this but were blown away with their kindness. I have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending a stay at Les Molyneux.
