Two friends had stayed here and loved it - imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, we followed, and even shared their dining options of the simpler Jardin d'Alice on the first night, and the gourmet restaurant on the second.
This is French grand'luxe. As Michelin used to say, "prix en conséquence" - especially in the bar, where I draw the line at 20 Euros for a whisky - but lovely grounds, really stylish rooms, classy bathrooms and nice coffee machine, and expert nouvelle cuisine menus with well chosen wine. We had the selection menus on both evenings, which showed real inventiveness in every course, but I suspect still more delights were available on the carte, with grand cru wines to match. The staff were all extremely friendly and seemed happy in their work, taking pride in the quality of everything, and full of giggles as they brought round a sweet trolly at the end.
I'd read the couple of negative reviews as well as the positive ones before booking, and thought they were a bit churlish. This is the best of its type that France has to offer, and there are plenty of other places to enjoy Ms Davids Omelette and a Glass of Wine if that's what you prefer.
