We know the restauant of this hotel well but have never actually stayed in the hotel before. Walking up the grand staircase has always been something I have wanted to do although as we know M et Mme les Patron we could have done it anyway! Yes Mme is a little reserved as stated by some reviewers but when you get to know her she is very kind. M is an amazing and jolly chef, if you aren't staying here at least go and eat out in the charming terrace courtyard at lunchtime or in the beautful dining room for a splended evening meal.
As this is a hotel as well as a good restuarant I had better review the rooms. We had a smallish room on the first floor! The fireplace in our room was as large as the bathroom, it was adequate for a three night stay. We couldn't make it to the second floor and the suites as we are old and decrepit at 60+! We were at the back of the hotel so with the huge shutters and window closed we heard nothing of the Friday market. The rooms on this floor are a little dark but we were told that, also a little old fashioned maybe. With the curtains, shutters and windows wide open onto the courtyard below it felt much better. We had a perfectly nice stay. We did not have breakfast so cannot comment on that. All in all we feel this is the best hotel in the area. All the staff are helpful including the English speaking Paula. We would recommend this hotel even if it was only for the food.
