Reviewed 17 August 2017

We booked 3 rooms for 1 night as part of our 2017 road trip through France.

All the hotel rooms are very nicely furbished. One was on the ground floor (Room 5) with patio doors opening out onto the small garden. Excellent for quick access to the swimming pool and jacuzzi whilpool bath, located in an annex. The "spa" facilities are small but ideal for relaxing after a hot and tiring day.

The hotel is on a main road and is easily accessible with secure gate operated parking.

A good stop-off if you are travelling north / south and offers good value accommodation. We didn't eat here because the restaurant menu didn't appeal to us so we ate at a restaurant outside the hotel.

Will consider staying again if we take the same route south again.

Just a point on the booking. We booked as Genius members with Booking.com with the nice offer that we would receive a welcome drink on arrival. However, on arrival and after check-in, we were told that the "offer" was a pre-dinner drink which therefore made it conditional on eating in the restaurant. Something may have been lost in translation but we felt rather miffed that the hotel simply brushed us off.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor room with patio door to garden

Every year we spend a couple of nights here on our journey to and from the south. And every time it is a huge pleasure! The hotel is excellent in every respect with the owners consistently delivering to a very high standard. Madame Roche always gives a warm welcome, whatever room we select is clean and welcoming. The indoor pool lovely as are the gardens. The parking is secure.

However all that said the food is always fantastic, it gets better year on year! Her husband Michel and the team in the kitchen produce delightful high quality meals and the team in the dinning room serve it so well. This year a couple of new faces on the floor and a much more relaxed and interactive service. Great stuff! Few places in France will match this place .....and we have tried many!

Prices of the rooms reasonable. The high quality food is fairly priced. To really enjoy budget overall around 220€ per night.

Stayed: October 2016, travelled as a couple

We stayed in room 5 which was spacious and light with 2 French windows and a wet room shower. Very comfortable bed and a very efficient shower. There was also a single bed which we didn't need but which would be suitable as a family room.

The room was very very clean with a large bathroom and walk in shower. Large double bed and view out to the garden. The hotel proprietors and staff were extremely friendly. We ate in the restaurant on the evening and the food was superb. They have an indoor pool which is open all year round and a must at the end of of day to wind down.

Room Tip: The rooms to the rear have a good view over the garden.

This is a very comfortable place to stay for a couple of days. The rooms are clean and the bathroom is excellent. I would have liked to have a handrail in the shower or a nonslip mat to feel safe.The gardens and indoor pooland gym are a nice feature. The selfservice breakfast was very good for our three generation family. We did not eat dinner in the popular restaurant as there was not really the meals to suit our various intolerances and vegetarianism.I am not sure that the pool table on the top hallway is a very good idea.You cannot play pool quietly.having said that we had a very pleasant stay and the staff were good.

Room Tip: We had the whole top floor for our family. The young ones loved hearing the lions roaring in the Bio...
