I can't comment on the hotel itself, but this seems to be the forum for reviews on its restaurant, so here goes. We went here to celebrate my mother-in-law's 60th birthday and retirement. She chose it based on a write-up she read somewhere, but we're thinking now that if it was a positive write-up it MUST have been a paid advertisement. We were there 50 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order, despite repeatedly asking a waitress to have someone come to take our order (there was a toddler with our party who was getting hungry and restless). When a waiter the waiter finally came, he was unapologetic and terribly rude. He even went so far as to correct my grammar (I live in France and speak very good French, but mistakenly used the masculine article instead of the feminine one, apparently an error he felt needed to be corrected). Food was mediocre at best, clearly cheap ingredients were used (the red wine sauce on my monkfish tasted unmistakeably of powdered veal stock) and preparation was unskilled (stale, soggy pastry on plum tarte tatin, plums weren't at all sweetened and were unpleasantly acidic). Dining room was busy but overstaffed, although it was a Sunday lunch, usually a very busy meal in French restaurants, so you'd think they'd have been prepared for the rush. Decor was terribly outdated, cringe-worthy even. Much better food can be had in this region for the same price, very poor value for money. Wouldn't return here if you paid me. It was a thoroughly unpleasant experience.
