We drove all the way from Dinan to Lyons-la-Foret. A long drive, and we had no reservations. We tried the local B&B, and they were full. So a short walk along the main street took us to this delightful and elegant boutique hotel. With a 1920/30s car in the entrance and and a lovely garden for having an early evening drink.
Unfortunately, whilst the welcome was warm the boy on reception did not help us with our luggage- something I think is a absolute minimum. We got to our room, and it was lovely, and elegant. The bathroom had a luxurious bathtub. The bed was luxury at its best! We did not try the hotel's restaurant, as it seemed very over-priced (breakfast was a no-go too as it came with a 15 euro price tag). However, we did try the bistro next door, owned by the same people. It was great, excellent service and good value.
We would definitely recommend this hotel, and go again. The village is beautiful and the hotel a hidden gem after a long, long drive!
