We booked 3 nights based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. The hotel was on the main road and easy to find. We were delighted to be shown our room which was very clean and inviting. The bonus being a balcony with privacy screens. The decor of the breakfast room and lounge areas were delightful. The breakfast proved excellent... More

Stayed here on the way back from the Le Mans 24hrs. Needed a cheap pit stop and as we were two blokes didn't need or expect anything fancy.

Nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotlessly clean and welcoming,... More

We stayed here for 1 night prior to driving to the south of France. The hotel was very easy to find with plenty of parking. The lady who met us a reception was very friendly and did her best to try and speak English to us. Her English was better than our poor French, but she managed to tell us... More

We are a party of four on two motorcycles and arrived at about 6.30pm after a fairly long run up through France on a damp sort of day. On speaking to the owner it became obvious there was an error in the booking and it was my fault. I had booked for October and not September. It was no trouble... More

I was one of a party of 14 who stayed here at the weekend. I heard no complaints and everyone was happy. The hotel/bar/restaurant had a cosy family feel to it and we were all made very welcome. We had a super meal in the evening (the service was excellent) and the breakfast was plentiful. Everything was clean and we... More
