We first stayed here about 10 years ago for an overnight stop. The whole set up was superb although the rooms had not been refurbished but were quite ok. The staff were very welcoming, the restaurant stunning, the food excellent and the beautiful grounds well kept. This time wasn't such a positive experience in some ways which may be due... More

The exterior of this hotel is delightful but that's about where it ends. Admittedly we did arrive just as dinner service was starting so maybe they were short staffed and that was the reason our reception was not over effusive. The carpet up to our room - on the top floor - needs to go in the skip. The room... More

I stopped "by accident" in l'Auberge des Vieux Moulins. I was driving back from Paris later than planned, and I was looking for a place to stay about 1h outside Paris. After getting a couple of negative replies from fully booked Ibis/Formula 1 hotel around the Melun area, I found this Auberge on Booking.com and booked online. I showed up... More

Were this a review of just a restaurant my ratings would be better. The main thing that would make the restaurant ratings even higher would be more help explaining the menu in English. But the Oeufs en Meurette were superb, and, apart from one unfortunate menu choice, the meal was excellent - tasty, well presented, well served. The initial impression... More

The location is wonderful and the site is worse a long drive! Food is very good. Quiet atmosphere, very charming dining room. The old mill is one of the rare in the region and worse the visit. The small Town of Villeneuve L'Archeveque is also worse the visit. Do not miss the "Cathedral' and the very nice trails along the... More

It is a year since we were last here and I was commenting then that the refurb was progressing at a snail's pace and one might want to think about an alternative. Don't. We had two refurbished rooms (rooms 8 and 10) which have been done out really nicely and we were very comfortable. The corridors are still work in... More

We stayed one night in February, having visited 5 years ago. A lovely old mill that is being renovated. Restaurant is excellent as we're the restaurant staff. This is a restaurant that prides itself on quality and service with a huge wine list. I have to have a gluten free diet, and other than bread, they adapted things to suit... More

Having had a wonderful 7-course dinner on Valentine's Day last year, we returned this year, expecting the same. Sadly it wasn't so good: firstly the number of courses had been reduced to 4 but the price reduced only to €40 (from €45 last year). This was over-priced, especially given the disappointing main course: a steak (rather tough, so not even... More

Rooms comfortable and the surroundings really rustic and peaceful. Gardens and grounds lovely to sit and enjoy a few drinks or... More
