This is a lovely country hotel in Semblancay!

The staff were so helpful and the breakfast was lovely.

I can't recommend this hotel too much.

One not obvious point is that the restaurant for breakfast is through the front door and accross the road. It's certainly worth the walk!

We were hoping for a pleasant night's stay on our road home and we were not disappointed. Indeed, we were delighted by both our accommodation and food. Our room had recently been renovated and was stylish, clean and comfortable.

Our dinner was nothing short of splendid. The food was interesting, without being over involved, well presented and tasty. The service was friendly and the owner spoke informatively about both the food and wine and the local area. Add to that the fact that our dog was made most welcome and it could hardly have been better. A delightful place to stay.

We had not pre-booked but were delighted with the location and the place. Our room was spacious, comfortable and provided for all our needs. Good parking. Gorgeous dinner - fine dining! Excellent.
The only disappointment was breakfast which we found lacking in choice and atmosphere and expensive. EU14 each for a DIY breakfast with stale bread - usually unheard of in France.

Hotel in small rural town. Bedrooms in building opposite restaurant. Our room a little noisy as on the road side and cars stopped for traffic calming and a youth on a motorbike was roaring up and down the street (but we're used to absolutely no traffic). No air con but windows could be opened wide in bathroom and bedroom. Room small but adequate (water, tea facilities, hairdryer, wifi, good towels, toiletries). Good shower over bath but impossible to stop it leaking over floor. No lifts so ask for ground floor if limited mobility. Reviews suggest there may be some bigger rooms.
Private parking. Garden where we had drinks before dinner and excellent "nibbles" (aperitif / amuse bouche) - all home made and unexpected.
Dinner was outside as good weather. Food very good. Attentive service, but disappointed that they argued about wine being "off" (refused to taste or smell it) - when we eventually got a replacement it was obviously superior.
Breakfast an extra cost (expected) but substantial so worth it. Again on first floor so may be impossible if can't cope with stairs. Maybe they would serve in lower dining area if asked in advance?

Room Tip: If you don't like any noise, ask for room opposite road, and if there are bigger/more expensive...

I must have stayed here half a dozen times over the past dozen years, always as a destination in itself, rather than a place to break the journey from South to North or vice versa. I like its dependable cuisine, the modest but comfortable rooms and its quiet village location. I always look forward to breakfast here too. I have a slight perception that it has become more expensive (not just because of sterling's weakness) but I will still come back whenever I want to spend some time in the region.

Room Tip: The annexe seems to have more basic and probably cheaper rooms but is a nice place to stay.
