We had been wanting to eat here for some time but did not want to drive afterwards so booked when the hotel opened and we were put back as it was not finished.
Restaurant : despite the hotel saying we would have to drive to the restaurant, we walked, (500 metres) might not be fun in the rain! We had the reduced degustation menu. Excellent start with a choice of good champagne,canapés, amuse bouche, both entrees exquisite, the fish superb, however the Challans duck was average at best. This was followed by a top class cheese selection then a dessert amuse bouche then two desserts and the chocolate trolley. For me the meal lacked balance overall with the long dessert finish overwhelming.
The builders were still in the hotel. I thought the modern rooms were slightly too austere for my liking and the layout seemed to be designed by someone who does not stay in hotels. We had to change rooms at 1.30am as the lighting system had a mind of its own. Also Poor WIFI strength in the room. Breakfast was cooked in the dining room and whilst excellent in every aspect made little or no allowance for the size of dinner, a tad too much for me.
They promised to send a copy of the menu, six weeks on we are still waiting.
A lot of money not delivering the overall experience we anticipated.
