Excellent service and food, the new owners Marie Helene et Jean Louis Lelong have continued to give the same if not better service than the previous owners. We have been staying at this Hotel for over 10 years and the service & Food has always been excellent and we will continue to stay here both on our outward and homeward... More

A French Adventure(or arguing with the Sat-Nav!) The plan was to drive from Newcastle to Narbonne in the South of France Via Portsmouth /Caan ferry, take our time and stop a couple of times on the way down. First stop was Premier Inn for a night with Lenny Henry (no sign, Molly was disappointed!) in Portsmouth and ferry next day... More

We stayed there for our second time, in both cases so we could attend the local Promenade Goumande. New management had taken over in 2013 but everything was at least as good as before. The setting, using various buildings for the rooms, and the gardens make for a relaxing stay. If the weather is right then dinner outside is delightful.... More

Spent one night at the Auberge de Launay. Rooms are small but clean and well appointed. The restaurant is very good. We had a great dinner there. Also enjoyed the continental breakfast with home made preserves in the morning. Very very good stop.

We stayed at this very pretty hotel in October. The outside of this hotel is just lovely – with ivy on the walls and a pretty patio and garden in the rear. Our room was on the second floor, highway-side of the hotel. We didn’t even realize there was a highway on the other side of the hedge as we... More

We stayed at this Logis Hotel quite by chance, as our other choices were closed on a Monday. Our room on the ground floor on the garden side was quite large and well furnished and although the railway was quite close, and we sleep with open windows, we were not disturbed. The menu in the restaurant is relative short and... More

I pulled in here footsore and tired after two solid days of walking around various tourist sites. I really didn't care what the place was like after I saw the sign on the road. I just wanted to rest (my legs and feet mostly) and recuperate. The lady who greeted me pleasantly in French did not speak English very well... More

We spent two nights in September and greatly enjoyed dinner in their restaurant both nights. The rooms, while completely adequate and very clean, were more on the order of a motel than a B&B. There is an (electric) railroad not far away which is quite busy and could be a problem if windows were open. Staff is accommodating but English... More

Stayed 5 nights, the room overlooking the garden was spacious and spotlessly clean. Other reviewers have mentioned train noise, yes there is a nearby railway but was in no way an issue for us. Everyone very friendly, breakfast lifted by little touches such as lovely home made jams! Dinner quality high and service attentive. Just a shame the weather was... More

We stayed for three nights with half-board at Auberge de Launay. Our room was quite large on the garden side and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was typical French, but unlimited coffee was available. The 3-course dinners were outstanding and the wine list quite extensive. We would highly recommend this auberge and hope to come...
