“Great manor house experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2010

We had a great stay with a good chateau atmosphere. Staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions for local attractions. We stayed in the Christine room with a large bathroom and spacious bedroom. A good selection of French TV stations. Had dinner one night with good food, wine, service, and ambiance. Wi-fi connection was strong and reliable. Based on our experience, would recommend this for those seeking a chateau experience in Provence.

Fortunately I was not able to understand most of the bad reviews of this hotel but it would seem to prove that there is a big difference between what us “Brits” like and what our European neighbours expect. When we drove up the Manoir seemed a little more quaint than impressive. Inside however it was quite different, we were welcomed by the wife of the husband and wife team that own the hotel she told us we had the best room in the hotel. Our room was indeed “quintessentially “ French very spacious and immediately our spirits were lifted, you really feel that you are in a special room, equal and better to a lot of 4 star chateaus we have stayed in. We were lucky that the weather was good and I had a walk round the gardens whilst my wife after a long days travel could not resist a nap in the sumptuous bed. The gardens and pool are a delight the pool was a little cool to tempt me in but during the warmer season would be wonderful. I looked at the drinks menu and my first and only disappointment a glass of champagne was 13.5€ . We settled later for a glass of wine brought to us in the garden by the husband of the team who was also dressed as the chef. The dining room is splendid situated in the old Orangery it was a bit daunting with just the two of us but we were made to feel relaxed by the charm and conversation of the owner-chef-waiter-husband. The meal was good and the recommended wine excellent and surprisingly cheap at 19€ when compared to a glass of champagne.
We had one of our best night sleeps in a hotel, superbly comfortable bed and woken only by the croaking of a frog in the morning.
Breakfast was OK not the usual buffet just a plate with an assortment of bread croissants etc, but cereal was quickly brought on request and it seemed more things were also available on request.
The owner told us we were the first “Brits” that year and our numbers have declined considerably, a direct result of the economy, I think, and not the failings of the hotel. Perhaps a little on the high side at 280€ for everything but I would still put it in a “Good Value” category. I think there may be some deals to encourage us “Brits” back worth a try and definitely a good overnight stop on the way to the South

We chose this hotel as a "base" for driving around the Rhone Valley and northern provence. We stayed in the family room which had two bedrooms. It was a spacious suite with a large bathroom and it was very quiet.

I found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. I agree the restaurant is overpiced, but we did not choose to stay here becuase of the restaurant. This hotel is not a resort and we were not looking for a resort because we would be spending most of our time sightseeing. We picked it because of the location and it's "charm".

So, if you are looking for a spa or resort I would suggest you look elsewhere. If however, you are looking for a small hotel, with friendly staff I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed a night here in June 06. This is a smallish "chateau" with 8 rooms or so, run by a couple with the assistance of (I think) 2 or 3 part time staff. It is located on its own but is 5 mins drive from Montelimar, which isnt really worth visiting unless you have to buy some stuff.

The room we had was really nice - huge 4 poster, high ceilings, wooden floors, big windows, massive bathroom with separate shower. No TV in the room or anything like that, but nothing wrong with that occasionally.

There grounds are not huge but include a small pool which made for a lovely dip in the June heat.

Facilities in the house are limited - you definitely know you are in someones house. There is one TV room which generally contained the owners kids, and there is no bar.

Dinner was served outside in the garden, which given the great weather was lovely, and the view is stunning. However, the 7 tables were served by only one, harassed waitress, while the lady of the house went around chatting to people and not helping at all. This meant service was extremely slow, and menu choice is limited. The chef is definitely the husband, who we did not see much, and the food sadly is OK but not great, while the portions are distinctly stingy (when I pay a £3 supplement on top of the menu price for a prawn starter, I expect to get more than 2 small prawns !).

Dinner was livened up by the house dogs though, two cute bichon frisees, though one of them definitely needs to see a vet about its eyes - poor thing.

Anyway, we will fondly remember the evening we had here, because it was quite amusing if nothing else. If you are in this area, and fancy the "small chateau experience", then give it a go, but don't expect too much.

Stayed June 2006
