One of those hotels where you feel sorry for the owners. Its a large hotel with lovely grounds and a real sun trap of a terrace at the front overlooking the road. But one worries whether they'll get the trade to pay the running costs of such a vast edifice. We visited in the second week of September - hardly low season, but the place was pretty empty and lacking atmosphere. We opted for a small room as it was just a one night stay, but it was well appointed and clean, if a little old fashioned.
The evening menu lacked choice and was served in a cavernous and sparsely populated room. The menu was trying to be at the gourmet end of cuisine but didn't really succeed. A menu serving good hearty auvergnat favourites might have been better. We weren't late finishing and fancied sitting in the attractive and large bar for a while, but with everything being packed away around us we decided to go up to bed.
Would we go back? - well yes if only to reward the hard work of the owners and staff - you feel like they deserve a break - and it is a nice hotel with wonderful grounds . But we'd probably eat elsewhere in the village.
