Having stayed at the Ricordeau a a couple of years ago, and found it to be the best hotel we had ever stayed at, we had no hesitation in booking again for a one-night stopover on the way from Caen to Classic Le Mans 2014; OK, we had to travel off our direct route a bit, but it is definitely...

Such a great visit to this fantastic hotel, great location for traveling through France, lovely hotel with super rooms and friendly service. Even the restaurant in the evening was fantastic, good quality and good value. Also the grounds are great for a stroll, all in all a super visit.

This is a lovely place to stay. The welcome, restaurant, gardens are all superb. The restaurant serves exquisite food at affordable prices in a beautiful dining room with warm and friendly service. I was travelling back to UK on my own and with my dog and I was made to feel welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. My... More

We had the pleasure of staying at The Ricordeau as a 2 night stopover on our return from South West France. Can't rate this highly enough, Ludovic and Anna were wonderful hosts, Ludovic has the best sense of humour - in any language, they were both very welcoming. We had dinner here both nights and wow - what a culinary... More

Our two night stay at the Ricordeau was such an enjoyable experience. Shortly before checking in, one of our party urgently needed medical assistance and as soon as we arrived, Ludovic and Anna quickly responded, going out of their way to organise this. Throughout our stay they were attentive, relaxed and willing to share knowledge to enhance our overall trip... More

We stayed overnight at The Ricordeau en route to the Vendee - a great start to our holiday. We were given a warm welcome (including our standard poodle) and were delighted with our spacious room and bathroom decorated in lovely French style. We ate in the hotel restaurant - what a treat, as was breakfast the following morning. Beautiful hotel... More

We arrived here mid afternoon having cycled for 4-5 hours in the blistering sun. We were hot very sweaty and thirsty. we were greeted with open arms and sorted with lunch even though the restaurant was closed. It is an idyllic spot an oasis. Gardens are beautiful and it has a lovely pool. Dinner that evening was truly scrumptious. Ludovic... More

We've stayed at the Ricordeau twice this year, first en route on our bikes, cycling from Caen to south of the Loire in April. Then the hotel was quiet, but we were given a warm welcome - our bikes were stored overnight in a grand room with chandeliers and gilt mirrors while we enjoyed a room on the top floor,... More

Classy dining room with lot of space around. If you're lucky and the sun shines you can eat on the terrasse close by the river. Food is great and tasty with the right level of imagination and creativity. Service is exceptional as in most French restaurants out of Paris.

We stayed for one night on our way back to Calais from the Ile de Re. The hotel is in a small town, near Le Mans, called Loue, in the centre of the chicken breeding area! The owners, Anne-Cecile and Ludovic Deschamps, are the most delightful, helpful hosts, so the visit got off to a good start, particularly when Ludovic... More
