Beautiful architecture and atmosphere
Apr 2019 • Solo
On the eastern weekend I have visited the Abbaye de Premontes, about which i have read in my Lothringen-guide.

This cloister is a great example of 18th century barock-and romanesque architecture.
It belong to the most distinctive examples of that architectural style in france.
And yes, there is plenty of beautiful things to discover in the Abbaye de Premontes.
Next to a permanent exhibition about the history of the place and some religious artworks of different kind one of the highlights are definitely the staircases, for which architecture the remonstrates where famed.
Also the church integrated in the building is worth to see.
The gardens outside the abbey and in the court seem to be more interesting in summer when everything blooms.
Some of the rooms are described in their former function but functionalized into hotel-function rooms, cause the abbey is also made into a hotel.

Nonetheless it is a beautiful and spiritual and calm place worth a look, people that fascinate with architecture will definitely enjoy it very much !

Very special accomodation - hotel in a museum
Apr 2019
Hôtel de l'Abbaye des Prémontrés was a positive surprise, we wanted to stay one night between Metz and Nancy and did not expect something special, but this hotel in a museum was very special, never experienced in this combination hotel and museum.
Pont-à-Mousson was also unexpectedly very nice, a lot of traffic of course, but the centre ville was quiet and comfortable, a lot of cafes and restaurants, hard to find a choice (we had a very good restaurant, Bouchon d'Pont, best lamb ever..).
The Abbaye has a public parking place in front which was very convenient, location close to a very nice church, restaurants to the left, others over the bridge to the right at Place Duroc. The room had everything you require, a separate WC, in the "hotel museum" and outside everything very quite.
Value for money very good. Would come back here any time.

Breakfast was standard but OK for 10 €, waitress was away for > 20 Minutes and there was no baguette any more so we left a little angry because this was not professional. Other hotel staff was very nice and competent.

Don't miss out on this huge and impressive building. It was destroyed during both world wars and restoring is only half way now. nevertheless: what is finished is amazing. Walk all the rooms and halls. Even the chapel is accessable. Great are also the central gardens.

Fabulous building average fit out
Mar 2018 • Friends
The building is fantastic. An 18th century abbey complete with cloisters, gardens, rich detailing, elegant staircases and fine carving. The staff were helpful and professional.There was nothing wrong with the rooms or public areas....but they just didn't match up to the environment. It felt a little like you were staying in the servants quarters....practical, clean, comfortable but not in any way luxurious.

I would go back....i just would know what to expect!

"On the road" made stop at historic museum of Abbeye des Prémontrés in Pont-à-Mousson
Aug 2017 • Couples
The early 18th century Abbey, with beautiful and peaceful central garden, hosts temporary art expositions. From 2nd June to 17th September 2017, there is the retrospective "du portrait a l'inconnu" from (regional) artist Solange Bertrand (1913-2011). Friend of Cocteau and Picasso, she made lively abstract-figurative paintings as well figurative sculptures.

We have stayed at the Abbaye several times and whilst the accommodation is basic the welcome is good and the front desk staff couldn't be more helpful. You can be sure of clean no frills rooms where everything works.

Disappointing
Sep 2016
This huge monastary can only be entered through the hotel - the fee is 8 Eur. You will get a little map, but this is it. Then you are free to roam through the building. However, little is left from the original building since it was heavily destroyed during the last days of the war by the Germans. The church is very impressive but in such a poor state - apauling! Breaks my heart to see such a magnificant building in such a terrible state.

Slightly disappointing, but worth a visit
Jul 2016 • Couples
Situated on the banks of the Moselle, this 18th Century abbey is now a conference centre and hotel and whilst we had unfettered access, the overall feel was one of commercialisation. There were several intriguing areas however; notably the grand staircases, gardens, inner courtyard and the church itself.

Unusual and beautiful place to stay

Fabulous eighteenth century monastic architecture but modern, quiet comfortable bedrooms. Good position on the Moselle and short walk to cafes and restaurants.
