Located on the old village square - the hotel looks out onto the gates of the Abbaye. However, to find the car park you now need to visit reception on foot and obtain a map and directions!. The old coaching hotel is built round its own private courtyard, full of flowers, and thus most of the rooms enjoy a quiet environment but do rather overlook each other. Our double aspect room, with own small balcony, was comfortable, thoughtfully furnished and with a good modern bathroom. The restaurant is highly recommended. and value for money, but you might need to book on arrival. Do allow an hour to explore the charming village on foot, and, of course, much more for the Abbaye. The latter, though extensive and interesting, was a little disappointing, due perhaps to its prolonged conversion from a high security prison to a display venue for modern alternative art. That said, the hotel is well placed as a touring base.
