We had booked in here on our return from a holiday in South West France, liked the look of the place and noted positve reviews. On arrival, we could see what a special place it was, in a wonderful setting with lakes, gardens etc. But oh dear, everything was so run down. The car park was quite scruffy and unkempt, the paint on the gates peeling and in need of freshening up. The pedalo and the duck house mentioned in the advertisement were both rotting away quietly in the lake, the fountain was not working. The whole place was desperately in need of some tlc. The "mill" part of the place was clogged up with rubbish and wood, could have been made into a fantastic feature. There was a plile of old barbecue equipment beside the lake, which looked very unsavoury. Our room was at the top of a slope, thank goodness the weather was dry or it would have been muddy and dangerous. Room was on a corridor opening onto the garden and the outside door could be locked only with a key once everyone on the corridor was in. Cleaning equipment, not very clean was stacked outside our door, and the light switch was probably very dangerous. Our room was pleasant with a nice seating area and bathroom with shower, but cleaning was perfunctory at best, with previous occupants hairs left in shower. Bedding was very clean and crisp and the bed was comfortable. The meal was another disappointment; we have stayed in many chambres d`hote and appreciate that food is not always of a restaurant standard, but this was overpriced at 20euros per head. Wine was expensive, we paid 19euros a bottle, which is more than we had paid during the whole holiday. Yes it is a beautiful place, but needs someone who will restire it to its former glory and who can provide better meals at that price. We shall not go back or recommend it.
