OK, this hotel overall is probably only a 4 dot review, but the breakfast made me up my rating.
The restaurant in general had top notch service and very good food. The breakfast, seemed to be the usual European hotel thing, where everything is set out and you help yourself. However, each little thing I ate was exceptionally good. The juice (orange and grapefruit) was fresh squeezed. The yogurt was amazing, it was not prepackaged and seemed to have fresh fruit puree of different flavors on top, in little individual jars. The croissant was the best one I had in France. The hot cocoa was delicious. It didn't seem like it was anything special, but each item was super high quality and this breakfast really stood out.
The service was OK. As others have said, it was not what I would expect from a 4 star hotel, but it also wasn't bad. We weren't able to get a taxi from the train station, after a long wait I called the hotel and they told me wait longer. Also, our tour company supposedly sent all our travel documents to the hotel, but they didn't know anything about it at the hotel. Passable service, certainly not great.
The hotel is really pretty, and we did get a room in the "chateau" part, and not in one of the modern buildings. The room was decorated very nicely, sparse but soothing. The bed was super comfy, with nice linens. The air conditioning didn't keep the room as cool as I would like, but it wasn't too bad. Nice bathroom.
Overall, I would give the place probably a 4 dot rating, but the breakfast seemed to warrant some extra recognition.
