“Excellent hotel! nice surprise!”
Reviewed 16 December 2012

I went to this hote lfor business and took the "soirée étape" forfait including the night, the evening dinner and the breakfast. It is simply wonderful! The hotel is in a castel and the room and very well furbished with design taste. everything is quite new and in style.
The dinner was perfect, served in a very nice piece of the castel with view on the huge garden. Wine is not too expensive, breakfast is also very cool and the feeling is just luxury!
I would definitely recommend this palce for business but also for tourism or leisure.

Very good hotel in a quiet and nice area, although as I drove at night it was little bit hard to find, more signs would be awesome. The little Chateux is very nice, restaurant has nice wines, could add little more dishes to dinner menu and little more variety to breakfast, but it is ok. Employees with an English good enough for communication.

Room Tip: The rooms in the Chateux are the best!

We picked this hotel because of its quiet, rural location and in particular so that we didn't have to drive arround looking for a resturant to eat in. We arrived about 10 minutes after the earliest booking in time, only to be told in a very abrupt and off-hand manner that the resturant was fully booked that night and would be closed the next night. However "there were plenty of resturants in Sables d'Olonne, a 25 minute drive away". This is the only hotel I have ever stayed at in France where you could not get an evening meal in their resturant. Disgusting. We subsequently had to drive to Sables, and then spent a further 45 minutes driving arround the town trying to find somewhere to park on a very busy Saturday night. A nightmare. Exactly the situation we had wanted to avoid.
Our room was not in the chateau, but in the Priory, a couple of hundred yards away. The room was furnished in a modern style, but decorated with a ghastly orange colour. In particular, we did not like the open plan bathroom, but at least the toilet had a door for privacy.
We did not have breakfast, on the basis that if they couldn't be bothered to let us use their precious resturant in the evening, there was no way we were going to pay 12 Euros a head for a croissant and a cup of coffee. And to add insult to injury, they even tried to charge us for it. Thanks heavens we examined the bill before paying.
All in all, a very unpleasant experience, and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Do not stay over a weekend

A pleasant hotel.
We only stayed in one of the 'bungalows' in the grounds but they are well appointed.
Good swimming pool.
Good dining room and food.
Just watch your bill. Breakfast is 11 Euros each and seems to be added automatically. You have to tell them if you do not have it.

Picked this hotel by searching the internet because we needed a place to stay on our circular way home from the south of France.

A real find.

A very simple reception process by charming staff in a very chic and modern decor. The location is wonderful, set as it is in countryside and surrounded by paddocks. The rooms were very modern and well appointed, and ours was based in the priory - a short distance from the main hotel building. A very refreshing mix of modern and traditional style. The dinner in the hotel restaurant was excellent, after the obligatory drinks on the terrace overlooking the horses in the paddocks. Our group did'nt take them up on the offer of breakfast - a common high priced addition in France it would appear.

We were so impressed with the standards in this hotel that we used their group brochure to track down another couple of places to stay for the remainder of our trip.

The outside pool did not open until later in the morning so the pre-breakfast dip was not possible.

Well this was the fifth of 5 chateaus we stayed on a mini break and with the others all bring A+ this had a lot to live up to.

The approach from the south was less than inspiring, you end up weaving through an industrial park and thoughts start such as "oh dear" ...

However after a few turns and beds you find the Chateau in it's own estate and very grand. Parking is easy and walking through the main door there is a modern design hall area and a reception, though not as you know it, you have to track the staff down, but that is OK.

Up some large marble stairs and a smaller set we entered our second floor room. Very different from the others we had stayed in, modern design, a corner bath in the same room as the bed ... and I have to say really good, a change from all the classical design and much needed !

We made use of the pool, which is nicely enclosed and warm, could have happily spent longer there and then after a beer we ate our dinner. The restaurant was very French (yes I know ... what did we expect !) and super with it, good food, service was great and it just had a super atmosphere.

It would not be for everyone, if you like the classical chateau this may not be for you, but if you like a little difference every now and again ... give it ago. Even better take your horse if you have one as they seemed to be set up as a horse hotel too ... i.e take your horse on holiday ...

Recommended !
