“Hotel good. Eat elsewhere”
Reviewed 21 November 2010

The room was very good. The food was not to standard and when we complained to the chef/owner he did not reply and walked away. On departure I commented on this to him and he told me we were just two of twenty and therefore we were wrong. I told him he should be devastated if fault was found with his cuisine. He was very happy to see us leave. No apololgy at any stage. If you stay here, eat elsewhere. Never seen this attitude before in France.

Nice enough place, and good standard of rooms and bed. Good value for money - which was why we chose it. The owner manager became very disdainful when we decided not to eat at the hotel, and was unpleasant and rude to us. We had to catch a ferry, and the breakfast was serverd very late (8.30am start). When we asked to leave at 7am, we were told we could not - we had to wait until the owners got up! Part of staying at a hotel is the welcome and personal contact. Colonne de Bronze; null points.

We returned to this hotel in April having enjoyed our first stay here in 2000. Since that time, the former owners have retired and Maryse and Laurent Hanquier have taken over. The hotel rooms, which have been fully and elegantly renovated and refurbished, are spotlessly maintained. At E62 for a double room, with shower, toilet, TV, quality furnishings, heating and ready access to parking, it is excellent value for money.

Chef Laurent presides over the 'restaurant gastronomique', with Maryse its elegant hostess. There are plenty of choices to be had, either a la carte or a 'menu' (in April, E23 or E27 respectively for a two course dinner). Our meals were excellent - full of flavour, fresh and beautifully presented. Breakfast was E9.50 per person, but what a breakfast ... Apart from the usual choices of juices, cereals, yoghurts, baguettes, croissants, tea and coffee, there were pates, hams, cheeses, eggs, herrings, slices and fresh and poached fruits.

In our 5 weeks in Italy and France, this hotel was among the best three we stayed at and the food would be close to the best we had.
