This beautiful Abbey is unfortunately a little down at heel. The gardens whilst extensive are shabby or at least were at the time of our visit in Autumn. The room was characterful and comfortable with nice view across the garden. We ate in the restaurant which was unrelenting high cuisine (even the menu pour enfants had pate de foie gras... More

If this place closed down for a three or four month proper refurbishment it'd be a beautiful luxury retreat. The reality is that it's like visiting an elderly relative who really should redecorate. We stayed for one night at Abbaye de Villeneuve to break up the journey back to the ferry port. I must confess to not having read the... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing a review with us on Tripadvisor. We apologize for your experience with dust in the room as well as the other inconveniences in regards to the bathroom and toilet area. We have taken up the matter with our house keeping team. As for our restaurant, we do serve a rather “gastronomique” cuisine but also... More

Having read the other reviews, I wonder whether we are reviewing the same hotel. We found really welcoming and customer focused reception staff, attentive and efficient restaurant staff, delicious food, a huge bedroom and large bathroom ... Everyone was friendly and helpful, our dinner (we took the set menu at €36) was a gastronomic delight, and even though there was... More

We booked on the basis of the hotel's website and it's promise - and should have paid more attention to the less positive Tripadvisor reviews. I don't mind cost - it's the value that's important and Abbaye de Villeneuve rates very low on that criterion. It's clear that the budget for this hotel is limited - in terms of maintenance... More

Very disapointed given the price we paid: EUR 175 per night - Old and dusty room - Old bathroom => bathtube without proper shower equipment (modern people no longer take a bath everyday...) - We ran out to avoid the dinner (some friends arrived a day before us and said it was terrible) - Internet is not working in the...

Beautiful location and lovely surroundings though we might have preferred the hotel to invest a little more in comfort and mod cons. Our room was a good size and attractively furnished but the bath had a hand held shower which was very tedious. Dinner was good and the service was excellent. Our sat nav took us to entirely the wrong... More

This old monastery was once a great hotel. 2008 Dalei Lama was in this hotel. With a good GPS the hotel is easy to find and you get a warm welcome of the friendly staff. Once in your room it's not that nice anymore. The windows are old and penetrable, the bathroom is quite outdated. The whole hotel needs a... More

5 star Cistertian Abbey Hotel. Good, if small, room with a view over the garden. The food was wonderful and staff friendly. Excellent end to our holiday Good postion if a little difficult to find ( you need a good detailed satnav!) just south of Nantes. Dont leave at 8pm straight into the rush hour if going North!

We found this hotel on lastminute.com and got a good rate on the day that we wanted to stay. Pluses - it's convenient, beautiful, quiet. Minuses - we hada standard room which was stuffy on a warm day and very small (we were advised in advance that the rooms were small, to be fair). The cleanliness wasn't great - bathroom... More

We received a gift of an overnight stay at the Abbey as one of our wedding presents. Our entire experience with the staff of Abbaye de Villeneueve was perfect! When I called for the original reservation, we were guided to come on a Friday (rather than Saturday when a big wedding party would take place and it might be noisy)... More
