“We will be back....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

04/09/11
As others have written below I cannot understand the negative reviews earlier in the year. My wife and I stayed here for one night as we travelled down to Languedoc.
Our reception was warm and friendly, the room was clean, comfortable, and well laid out. Dinner was an excellent meal and the local wines were well worth trying.
Two small things ensured that we will return. Firstly a welcome coffee when dealing with a couple of 'e' mails first thing in the breakfast room before 'breakfast' had begun and secondly two garden fresh strawberries offered with our breakfast as they had just ripened.
Perfect.

I couldn't disagree more with the comments that the owners were not welcoming! We had an extensive email exchange with them from the UK and they could not have been more accomodating to us and our children. The food was very good and the family room clean and comfortable. An easy drive from Calais so we actually arrived in time for an aperitif in the lovely courtyard and they also cooked a plain pasta supper on arrival for our children. Would definitely recommend either as a stop off en route or as a base for a holiday as the region looked to be very attractive.

We stayed for 7 nights in this hotel. We had a bike arrangement with a Dutch travelorganisation. Beautiful, charming hotel. Nice location. We enjoyed the hospitality of the owners and we absolutely don't recognice some of the earlier reviews! The owners (Diana and Dominique) are both very hard working and nice people. Diana is also a great cook.

We stayed here for one night on our way south. It's a great location for a good days drive from the ports. Sitting in the village square with a cold beer and then eating the excellent dinner cooked by Dianna, we knew we'd booked the correct place.

If you don't like it....well you're a bit stupid I guess and should consider a travel-lodge.

We had a really pleasant 2 night stay here. The food was excellent and the children were made to feel very welcome. Diana was very helpful with tips on where to go in the locality. Would definitely go back!

We were only here for 1 night but I can't fault what we got. Lovely room, perfect for our requirements. Great restaurant - food was excellent and a good wine list. Everything was lovely. The town itself was truly magnificent. We really enjoyed our stay and would come back again.

Apart from breakfast, which I too thought was rather overpriced at 13 Euro (though overpriced breakfasts are not unknown in French hotels), this was a charming small hotel, the owner helpful, the food good, the room smart and very attractively furnished. The village is certainly very beautiful, and if I would not take six cases of the local wine home with me, I enjoyed sipping it out in the courtyard. Recommended.
