We picked this hotel because of its quiet, rural location and in particular so that we didn't have to drive arround looking for a resturant to eat in. We arrived about 10 minutes after the earliest booking in time, only to be told in a very abrupt and off-hand manner that the resturant was fully booked that night and would be closed the next night. However "there were plenty of resturants in Sables d'Olonne, a 25 minute drive away". This is the only hotel I have ever stayed at in France where you could not get an evening meal in their resturant. Disgusting. We subsequently had to drive to Sables, and then spent a further 45 minutes driving arround the town trying to find somewhere to park on a very busy Saturday night. A nightmare. Exactly the situation we had wanted to avoid.
Our room was not in the chateau, but in the Priory, a couple of hundred yards away. The room was furnished in a modern style, but decorated with a ghastly orange colour. In particular, we did not like the open plan bathroom, but at least the toilet had a door for privacy.
We did not have breakfast, on the basis that if they couldn't be bothered to let us use their precious resturant in the evening, there was no way we were going to pay 12 Euros a head for a croissant and a cup of coffee. And to add insult to injury, they even tried to charge us for it. Thanks heavens we examined the bill before paying.
All in all, a very unpleasant experience, and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Do not stay over a weekend
