I am writing this review with mixed feelings. The room we stayed in was exactly as it looked in the picture on the website. It was a large room which had real character with exposed beams, there was a nice bathroom including a jacuzzi style bath and a separate toilet. However as it was in the loft, and there was no air conditioning, it was uncomfortably hot during the night.
The hotel is located at a busy junction in the village and there were frequent large noisy lorries passing right next to the hotel and the tables and chairs outside - which were fastened to the ground by steel cables!
The restaurant food was also excellent quality but breakfast was poor for a hotel charging these prices and we noticed that the preserves were left out all day with no lids! The main problem was the unfriendly attitude of the owners. We have been travelling in France for over 20 years and this is the first time we have encountered language difficulties where the people we were speaking to seemed determined to be as unhelpful as they possibly could and determined not to meet us half way and help us to understand what they were trying to say by either slowing down or saying things in a different way. We do have some understanding of French and did not experience this attitude anywhere else. At dinner we felt most uncomfortable and were surprised to hear that English was spoken to a table of American guests who were also offered an English menu. Even when checking out there was no ‘Bon Voyage’ or any friendly comment from the owner.
