“A lovely surprise - gorgeous location and outstanding restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We booked this hotel for a 1 night stay on our way to Paris from Nice and what a lovely surprise it was. Location is quiet, restful and tranquil. Rooms are tastefully decorated with very modern, well equipped bathrooms. The big surprise was the restaurant - our evening meal was superb. Food was presented like a Michelin rated restaurant and tasted amazing. Overall hotel facilities were great - beautiful extensive grounds and lovely swimming pool. Great place for couples or families.

If you are looking for a great stay away from all of the noise and traffic you normally find at a hotel in a city centre, then try this one. It has a great restaurant, nice and clean rooms and a friendly staff. It also has a golf course, a swimming pool and some tennis courts - unfortunately, it was winter while I was there so I didn't get around to trying out the golf course... It did look beautiful though.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2010

We stayed for one night on our way home from Italy. The room was small and a bit dark but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was newly refurbished and of a high standard.
We got an excellent value half board deal and the food was better than in some of the 5* hotels we had stayed in in Italy. (Even the whole frogs in garlic starter proved to be tasty!)
There was a very nice swimming pool and lots of fluffy towels available which was an unexpected bonus after a long day sitting in a car.

We stayed at this hotel 13.-16. May and played golf at all three courses. The courses were enjoyable, but especially the service at the hotel made us enjoy the long weekend.

The lady receptionist was the greatest. And food in the restaurant is best that we have had in three star hotels. It was better than we expected - we had the menu every night. Rooms are also clean and quite recently renovated, and funnyly located in an old, stone farm house. We were able to modify air conditioning ourselves according to our wishes.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2008

We stayed at the hotel as that is where my cousin's wedding reception took place. I don't play golf but can heartily recommend the hotel.

The room was roomy with separate toliet and bathroom. Very clean and with all the facilities. Outside there was a swimming pool for those who didn't golf. The grounds were lovely with many wildfowl among the many ponds.

We didn't actually make breakfast due to exhaustion caused by overeating and drinking but the food we did have at the various wedding meals was superb. The service was first class.

  • Liked — Great food
  • Disliked — Not noticing till later that I had been charged for breakfast

When you want to visit "The Dombes" near Lyon, you can easily choose this hotel in a peaceful location with its own large Golf, park, and outdoor swimming pool.
The "Suite-room" are worth especially at the corner of the building with the nice view over the Golf and Park. In the bathroom, there is also a wihrlpool. A sitting aera with nice flat TV , air-con, Internet access, mini-bar are also provided. All the stuff you need to feel comfy. We 'll go back.

Try also the excellent restaurant "La Table d'Antigny" in the hotel which is really delicious and serves nice French traditional food and tasty wines. Book in advance.
