Situated just a 5 minute walk from the town centre, this hotel is located in an old abbey which has been thoroughly modernised. The decor is light,bright and contemporary, with many modern works of art adorning the walls. Reception was efficient and friendly, there is a Spa and small swimming pool. Although on a main road, the hotel and garden/ pool area were quiet with no traffic noise. The hotel has a large car park part of which is underground.
Our room was of reasonable size, with a large double bed, adequate storage TV, separate WC, The bathroom had contemporary furniture of good quality with a separate shower area, wash basin and bath. Wifi was free, fast and did not require, login id or passwords.
There are two restaurants, a bistro and La Table Capucins, which offered gourmet dinning. We ate in the latter, service was friendly and efficient, the waitresses gave us a detalied description of each course's components. We had the Gourmet menu, which is served as part of the hotel's demi-pension package, this consisted of an amuse, starter, main course, pre-desert and desert. For wine we chose the option of a different glass wit each course, chosen by the chef. I find that this is usually a good option, the wines whilst not expensive have been well chosen and often one is served a wine that one would not have risked, if having to purchase a whole bottle.The food was well cooked with good presentation and tasted delicious. If you are staying more than one night, the gourmet menu has two alternatives. The dem-pension package was€219 for two people and represented excellent value.
Breakfast was a buffet, hot or cold. Bacon looked really tasty, but after the previous nights dinner I could only manage some fresh fruit and a croissant.
The hotel makes an ideal location to visit the area and would be a good resting place for two or three days.
Montauban is well worth a visit, with interesting architecture, some chic shops and a square away from the traffic in which you can partake of a drink and watch the world go by.
