“Unexpected pleasure”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We just turned up on a lovely day last week when our shopping trip aborted. Quelle bonne surprise! Welcoming to start with and in the gorgeous sunshine of the day we were placed in the garden, with the church tower to keep us company and all pleasant kinds of wildlife around. Service was prompt. My wife's starter of beet root and goat cheese was wonderful and a real find. Great bread from the local bakery. Main courses presented well and we shared a cherry clafoutis at the end,so generously proportioned it was a wise move. A bottle of rosé from a local bio vineyard and great coffee complemented a very enjoyable meal. Price reasonable too.

The friendly staff were incredibly thoughtful and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent - home made jams (including banana and ginger), mini croissants, pain au chocolate and apple turn overs: home made plum cake: local farm produced plain yoghurt (amazing): fresh fruit salad: fresh squeezed orange juice: cold meat and cheese and endless supplies of coffee. Our bedroom was one of the more modern tastefully decorated ones with individually chosen furniture and double glazed windows. Comfortable bed and pillows and good linen sheets. The ensuite had a large shower with good water pressure. Our friends were in a room in an older part of the building and it had the original stone fireplace and all the original exposed beams and walls. Beautiful! We didn't have a chance to eat in the restaurant but we did eat there last year and enjoyed it very much.

Right in the middle of Yzeures-sur-Creuse, this hotel has been recently renovated and the rooms are comfortable and stylish. As seems to be the fashion, our bathroom had an awesome shower! There is a comfortable resident's lounge with exposed beams and an open fireplace - very welcome when we stayed there in a very chilly early March. The staff are friendly and very helpful, and the owner speaks good English. Wi-fi available. There is some parking available in the square immediately outside the hotel.

The food is good, with a variety of menu options, and we enjoyed all the meals there. However the basic menu included with half board had only 3 choices - a bit limited if staying for any length of time. A daily special would be a good idea - as would some vegetables on the plate. Breakfast was good - tasty breads with jams, yogurt, fruit and cheese, with eggs available on request.

The hotel is in a very convenient location for visting the Brenne national park. There is a courtyard garden at the rear - this could be great in summer.

The hotel is right on the road through the village. We didn't really notice much traffic noise (double glazing on the window) in our room at the front, but if you're sensitive to this ask for one of the rooms at the rear.

Charming hotel in the center of this typical small provincial town. Rooms were clean comfortable and quiet, We had dinner in the dining room. Food was first rate and service was excellent. Breakfast was served in the courtyard, very pleasant. Special praise for the owner who was very gracious

Very disappointing meal. I felt the chef had either not tasted any of the sauces or if he had he had a very strange palate. Médaillon de porc was smothered in a black olive sauce, the meat was tender but sauce far too strong and very salty. The duo of creme brulée was extremely disappointing - two coffee cups of a very solid and tasteless custard, certainly no 'brulée' in sight. On the other hand the service was very good and the decor pleasing.
