To rate this hotel 'average' overall is perhaps a little harsh but it doesn't merit a 'very good' rating. It's a lovely characterful building with a fine hilltop outlook, and yet it could be so much better than our experience suggested.
On a Friday night in June we were two of only four overnight guests, which immediately takes away any sense of atmosphere when dining (this is not an area with a large number of likely alternative options). On arrival and again at check-out, the hotel appeared to be one-man (or one-woman) operated, and whilst the staff are certainly friendly and willing, they are stretched.
The bedroom had a magnificent view over the hotel courtyard (nice for a drink after arrival/pre dinner) and countryside beyond, but the room decor is of the quirky/dated French hotel style. The room and bathroom are adequately equipped and it is certainly a quiet area for sleeping. Dinner was good quality (they recommended what turned out to be a brilliant 'sabayon' dessert, made with local Orval beer). The room rate is comparatively reasonable but we left feeling that the place was just slightly 'faded' and not making the most of its undoubted potential.
