We arrived to a very warm and friendly welcome from the young lady on reception who took us to our room (in the annex) and explained everything very well. After unpacking we sat on a terrace at the front of the main building enjoying a relaxing drink and the wonderful grounds. The dinner was excellent and the service efficient and... More

The 4 star hotel is well situated in a quiet area a few miles south of Vienne with some nice landscaping. We were allocated a room in the Annexe as the main rooms (cheaper) were taken by a wedding party. The room was excellent; large, nice bathroom, separate loo and a small terrace surrounded by greenery. Worth noting that the... More

Nor far south after Vienne ( France), you can find the beautiful " Domaine de Clairefontaine" in the small hilly village of Chonas-L'amballan. The hotel is actually a splendid house from 1780, located in a green and large part, away from everything. Of course, the room ( in the new building) are perfect, cosy and well decorated. More importantly, the... More

The reason to stay is to experience the restaurant which has one Michelin star and is a real treat. The hotel portion itself is okay but the overall facility needs more to do when one is not eating. It is situated in a quiet parkland setting in a very sleepy little town not far off major highways. In that it... More

We choose this hotel to accomodate us during the jazz festival in Vienne, but have been quite dissapointed. The hotel has two buildings: an older one with some character and charm, and a newer one. We stayed in the newer one. I would not comment much about the architecture and design of the new building which I found boring, and... More

Wonderful hotel. I arrived very late due to flight problems. Staff were superb organising me food even thought the restaurant was closed. I was made to feel special and relaxed after a difficult day. Rooms large and very clean - great bathroom. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. The ambiance of the place is great. Food and service was outstanding. We arrived late, but the staff was ready with refreshments, red wine, cheeses and other treats, all without asking. While enjoying our refreshments they arranged our rooms and took our luggage without us being aware of anything. The breakfast buffet and... More

I spent Valentines here whilst on a business trip & I loved every moment. The bathroom was HUGE as was the bath. The meal we had in the resturant was my favourite of a week long trip. Would love to go back.

Stayed here for 1 night on our way down to St Tropez. Although the area is not that amazing, the hotel itself is really good and there is plenty of space to stroll around and enjoy the grounds. The room we had in the separate annexe was excellent with a huge bathroom with large shower cubicle and a massive bath.... More

To me a very enjoyable stay, two nights in June 2012, in a very attractive room in the annexe, just paces away from the main building and in a delightful garden. But the real bonus was the restaurant, the best food in our whole 4 week trip, also fantastic staff who could not do enough for us. Unfortunately we were... More
