I had high hopes of Les Glycines, with beautiful wisteria climbing over the large restaurant at the front of the hotel. My heart sank as I climbed the steep, narrow stairs to the second floor where there are several rooms for guests to stay. Mine (and my friends rooms also) was very small, barely room for my bag on the... More

It's in a great location and apparently the only show in town. They did some interesting restoration of an old building but my room was extremely small and impractically configured. On the plus side the wifi works very well. On the downaide I couldn't get past the fact that one of the recessed lights was hanging out of its anchor... More

We stayed here one night. Room was comfortable and good value for money. Bathroom small but adequate for an overnight stay. we were on the second floor, no lift and the stairs are steep. The young lady on reception was very helpful and although her English was not good, it was better than our French and we got there in... More

We arrived mid-afternoon to check in but found the place was closed. Not a good start! After looking around we eventually found a side door which was open so we went in only to find a board with 5 keys hanging on it each with a name attached. Ours was there but we had to find the room ourselves and... More

the wisteria (glycines) was rather 'over' by september but fine nevertheless - spent a peaceful night here on the last day of our holiday - a small comfortable but well appointed l room on the second floor approached by two steepish flights of stairs - overlooked by an ancient belfry and serenaded by cooing woodpidgeon - ok the bells start...

We took our friends here while staying with them nearby. The set menus offered good choices and we tried most of them out between us. Usual problem with the waiter - he was more keen to practice his English than to let us use our French. A good way to end a great holiday. We paid 132 euros including win... More

We have eaten at Hotel Glycines numerous times since 2002 whilst visiting Melle. We were amazed to read the previous review. The service is always excellent. Attentive whilst giving time to relax and enjoy the food at a leisurely pace.. French style, not Macdonalds style. The food is imaginative and good quality.

I have dined at Les Glycines a number of times over the last 5 years when holidaying from Australia. The food has always been excellent. The greatest problem is to choose just one of teh great desserts as tehy are all delicious.

During our holiday to the region we spent 1/2 a day in Melle. We went into Hotel Les Glycines for lunch and had the worst dining experience we've ever had. The service was so poor that I've had better service in Macdonalds. The staff got our order wrong twice (its not because of the language barrier as my French is... More
