We have just returned from a week touring Brittany and Normandy staying in five different hotels. Of the five this hotel was by far and away the poorest, which was most disappointing given that we had selected Relais du Silence hotels and then cross referenced them on Tripadvisor. When we arrived our check in was fine, but when our friends turned up the receptionist took a telephone call although they were waiting, without so much as an apology. After ten minutes we all gave up and went into town, leaving the check in until later.
Our room was a tiny twin room built into the eaves and with limited headroom on one side. Care had to be exercised when moving about to avoid the low beams. When using the mini bar care was also need to avoid the low slung television above. We queried the room but we were told yes, this is your room.
The first floor common areas were dark and dingy and when we inspected the indoor pool we gave up on the idea of a swiim.
We dined in as the hotel is out of town and had a good reputation. Unfortunately that was also a less than memorable experience. The waiting staff were first class but someone needs to tell the chef the difference between rare and raw. I like rare lamb and at a push will eat it virtually raw, but even I draw a line at raw guinea fowl.
Overall not an enjoyable stay, and somewhere we would never return to, which is a shame as of the other four hotels, three we want to go back to and the other was perfectly adequate. Relais du Silence, you need to carry out some reviews.
