This B&B was simply outstanding. The interior of the two adjoining manors has been lavishly restored with beautiful Victorian furnishings and antiques. The lovely woodwork found in every room gives the feeling that you have been transported back to another age. In particular, if you are seeking a luxurious and romantic retreat - this is the place. The atmosphere overall is warm and inviting.
We stayed in the Monk manor, which is especially lovely. It felt like we'd woke up and found ourselves in a French chateaux. The claw foot tub across from the bed was an indulgence we sought out at least twice a day! Our room was on the second floor and although it overlooked a downtown street by the populated Rue St. Denis, the soundproofing on the windows prevented us from hearing anything at all. The rooms are also complete with a standard shower and toiletries, including goat milk soaps. The air conditioning during the day was extremely comfortable, especially after our long summer walks. The bed was divine, with a mildly firm mattress and quality linens. I might also note the entire manor was at all times immaculately clean and well attended. Iron, refrigerator, cable tv and wi-fi was available in the room.
The buffet breakfast was enjoyable, if modest - especially the hand squeezed orange juice the owner prepared each morning. More than anything, I was especially appreciative of the fact breakfast was available up until 11. On weekends, there is a generous assortment of fresh breads to chose from, on week days it is served on a smaller scale. The jams are also homemade and delicious. We loved to take our plates and sit out in the garden.
You can walk pretty much to anywhere from this location. One of the main metro stations is also a block away. Many fine restaurants are a few minutes walk from the door.
We could not have been happier with our stay and I don't believe it is possible to find any place nicer at this price.
($150-180 per night. Note that B&B site doesn't include tax in the price)
