We booked on the basis of the hotel's website and it's promise - and should have paid more attention to the less positive Tripadvisor reviews. I don't mind cost - it's the value that's important and Abbaye de Villeneuve rates very low on that criterion. It's clear that the budget for this hotel is limited - in terms of maintenance... More

Very disapointed given the price we paid: EUR 175 per night - Old and dusty room - Old bathroom => bathtube without proper shower equipment (modern people no longer take a bath everyday...) - We ran out to avoid the dinner (some friends arrived a day before us and said it was terrible) - Internet is not working in the...

Beautiful location and lovely surroundings though we might have preferred the hotel to invest a little more in comfort and mod cons. Our room was a good size and attractively furnished but the bath had a hand held shower which was very tedious. Dinner was good and the service was excellent. Our sat nav took us to entirely the wrong... More

This old monastery was once a great hotel. 2008 Dalei Lama was in this hotel. With a good GPS the hotel is easy to find and you get a warm welcome of the friendly staff. Once in your room it's not that nice anymore. The windows are old and penetrable, the bathroom is quite outdated. The whole hotel needs a... More

5 star Cistertian Abbey Hotel. Good, if small, room with a view over the garden. The food was wonderful and staff friendly. Excellent end to our holiday Good postion if a little difficult to find ( you need a good detailed satnav!) just south of Nantes. Dont leave at 8pm straight into the rush hour if going North!

We found this hotel on lastminute.com and got a good rate on the day that we wanted to stay. Pluses - it's convenient, beautiful, quiet. Minuses - we hada standard room which was stuffy on a warm day and very small (we were advised in advance that the rooms were small, to be fair). The cleanliness wasn't great - bathroom... More

We received a gift of an overnight stay at the Abbey as one of our wedding presents. Our entire experience with the staff of Abbaye de Villeneueve was perfect! When I called for the original reservation, we were guided to come on a Friday (rather than Saturday when a big wedding party would take place and it might be noisy)... More

I used this hotel as a stop off on my way south. The hotel is charming and has real charcater. The location is also ideal within a few minutes from the main motorway. My room was lovely and was overlooking the main front garden. My one complaint was the air conditioning didnt seem to work. The staff were very nice... More

service friendly and courtious. room spacious, lovely and clean. swimming pool o.k. diner: terrible. precooked, overcooked, too expensive and terrible. nothing fresh. microwave. wine however was good. in short: stay there if you can't find anything else, but eat elsewhere. it is sad. we would certainly return if they had a normal kitchen.

We stayed one night at the Abbaye. The hotel is not easy to find even with GPS. The easiest we found: enter Les Sorinieres (downtown) in the GPS. When entering the village, look for a Villeneuve sign in one of the roundabouts you will cross and always follow Villeuneuve signs(you will leave and re-enter les Sorinieres) until you arrive at...
