Things didn’t get off to a good start when we were shown our room. I’d requested a quiet room with shower but ended up above breakfast room/terrace area and no shower just a bath. WiFi access is available in room. A walk around their gardens is definitely worth the effort but unsuitable for people unstable on their feet.
Dinner was so-so……..my foie gras was excellent but of course we are in France so that should be a given. My husband’s starter “Sandwich de l’Ocean” was average bordering on boring and it attracted a supplement of 10 Euros. Why? I have a real irritation with hotels who add greedy little supplements to their menus. I had the lamb which was very pink in places and hubbie’s beef was medium/rare – a little too rare for his taste but again, he ate it. Why do restaurant staff bother asking how one would like meat cooking if they don’t follow your request?! We travel through France a lot so understand that their idea of medium cooked is not the same as the English version so we always compensate for that when advising how we like the meat cooked. Service was chaotic to say the least and, at times, the staff appeared to be arguing between themselves. There didn’t appear to be anyone in charge and overseeing the whole operation.
The bed was large and very comfortable so we both slept well. Towels and toiletries were adequate.
Breakfast at 18 euros per person is ridiculously expensive and bordering on London hotel prices. We voted with our feet, checked out and stopped off in Jonzac for a super 10 euro per person breakfast.
Standards have dropped and prices have increased disproportionately since our last visit so, on those grounds, we won’t be staying again.
