A stay at the heart of Fontevraud Royal Abbey? A night with Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of France and then Queen of England? Fontevraud L'Hotel offers an incomparable experience. At the Saint-Lazare priory, formerly the home of a community of nuns, the tradition of hospitality that is an intrinsic part of this place is being renewed. Sleeping in the tranquil silence of the Abbey, walking alone through the monastery as night falls ... These are magical private moments. The 54 rooms of this four-star hotel have been fitted out with great respect for this almost 1000 year-old monument, whose face is firmly turned towards the future. Each of the rooms is a cosy refuge: high-quality bedding, elegant contemporary furniture that uses noble materials such as oak, and is made with respect for the environment - all this made especially for Fontevraud L'Hotel

The Abbey is stunning inside and out. Beautifully decorated and making the most of the architecture. View from room onto garden completed the stay. Buffet breakfast offered plenty of choice. We were greeted and driven to the front door in buggy.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff super friendly. The rooms are very confortable and breakfast is delish. Dinner at the restaurant is an amazing experience with food cooked to perfection. The fact that we had access to the abbey at any time, day or night was, for me, a dream come true. It was sooooooooo amazing that 3 weeks after my stay, I went back with the rest of the family. I highly recommend it for families and solo travellers alike. Please do visit, you will not regret it.

The general feel is that of a hotel catering for the conference trade. Rooms are utilitarian but ok. Having to leave you car half a mile away and they will pick you and your luggage up...but did not tell us! The abbey is open all the time and is just a minute away. Expensive room and a nice breakfasts. The restaurant is another matter and a great experience.

Dear Katty, We thank you for having shared your opinion on TripAdvisor. Did you ring the bell before parking your car? Our receptionist always inform our guests about the shuttle when they call the visiophone at the parking lot main entrance. Kind regards. Olivier Châble

The hotel was located within the abbey grounds. The room was okay. Breakfast was also just okay, with some items not really seeming fresh. The grounds were lit up at night, but didn't live up to other reviews which we read about the hotel. The village was small, but the restaurant we ate at was good. The location is out of the way and, though it was worth seeing, our time might have been better spent in another area.

The staff is amazing; pleasant, accommodating & hsppy to assist. The rooms sre fabulous, with a very comfortable & clean room & salle de bain. We liked that the room was very eco-friendly. The car park is far from the entrance, but they will send a golf cart for at least one passenger & the luggage. The breakfast is amazing. Really. I even tried coddled eggs with a mushroom sauce. Divine. My only complaint is that if you are staying off of a main corridor, the lights don’t turn on, immediately, so you may have to feel your way a bit. It was a wonderful stay!
