Thank you for your positive review. Indeed all our rooms are different : some with a fairly minimalistic decor, some exhuberant, some with a very colourful decor! Guests can indicate their preference when they arrive, otherwise don't hesitate to see several rooms. Our restaurant staff have also been informed of you delightful comments, à bientôt !? More

We spent a night here while driving north through France to the ferry at Caen. This was the basic room (Ambiance) and did have a rather bare look about it. However, the bed and linens were very good and comfortable as was the shower. We had dinner in the Plantagenet gourmet restaurant (which was very quiet) and again this was... More

Stayed for two nights in a traditional but large room which was nicely furnished, quiet but perhaps lacking some touches like even a box of tissues. We ate in the Bistro the 1st night, Thursday - excellent and reasonably priced food and wine by the glass. Hardly anyone else in the room though. Next night, Friday, outside on the restaurant...

Lovely hotel with character in the main square right outside the Abbey. Nice atmosphere and helpful staff. Classy rooms. TV and Wi-Fi. Very good breakfast. Quite pricey for France but I felt it was worth the outlay.

We stayed in Frontevraud and went to eat at this restaurant twice during our stay. The food was great and the menu had lots of choice, unfortunately the service was terrible.
