We stayed here on our honeymoon in July. Once you enter the property, you still take roughly 5 minutes by car to get to the Hotel, it is huge and beautiful.
it is a beautiful old house. However, it is private so you can't really go in. The Hotel is built in the surroundings of the main house.
We arrived close to 16h00 and we were invited to take a seat in the living room and have a glass of orange juice (nice gesture) while we started filling in what I thought was our registration form. We waited for nearly an hour to finally check-in.
The boy who checked us in, parked our car and took our luggage. Clearly short of staff.
This boy was clumsy and had a very sloppy walk. It seemed he was doing us a favour and not very friendly, probably just embarrased (maybe not the ideal person to have in Front Office as it does not give a good first impression).
Unfortunately there was a wind storm coming in and we couldn't use the swimming pool, but it looked great.
There is no place inside the Hotel where you can actually eat something during the afternoon. we had to go to the "café" a little further away as we had not had lunch yet.
We had dinner here and it was not good. My fish was raw and there was no appology given. The second fish that came was practically inexistent.
Service was OK.
Not the kind of Relais & Châteaux I would like to go back to.
