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

Absolutely perfect. A shining example of restoration and repurposing of a historical and heritage-rich place. The restaurant is great value even at the high end, the art museum is worth a visit by itself, and the old abbey buildings are timeless.

The hotel at Fontevraud Abbey is an experience beyond compare. I stayed two nights and the quiet proved wonderful. Breakfast and dinner were lovely and delicious. The lunch terrace options made for a great break in the middle of the day (in the garden, no less). The Abbey itself is extraordinary, and to be able to walk its halls at night proved very moving. I would recommend it to anyone.

This place is so atmospheric it is a shame about the Hotel however having said that I can't say enough good things about the staff they were really excellent. The rooms are tired and the beds lumpy, but they are clean and they have English speaking TV which was a treat in a French hotel. The food was unbelievably bad. Tuesday the restaurant was closed and we were offered a basket of food for an evening meal. It was atrocious for 25E each we had a horrible smoked fish that was unrecognisable, a mushroom starter with a barely cooked egg, the chicken didn't taste anything like chicken and was more a pressed fake deli chicken and the dessert was merely average. This meal made me so ill I didn't sleep most of the night. The breakfast buffet was pretty pathetic the coddled eggs were not fully cooked, dried duck breast and a pate of some description, 2 kinds of cereal and some dried up cheeses and a selection of bread and a waffle was served cold. The coffee was the worst I've tasted in France. We couldn't eat any of the breakfast as there was nothing edible for us so we chose not to partake and had them remove it from our bill. Sadly when we complained they would not or rather said they could not remove that dinner which we returned off our final bill. The young man on the front desk took our complaints very nicely and gave us a jar of honey as a token apology which was a nice sentiment.

I find it difficult to find anything good to say about this hotel. The Abbey and it’s history.is special but otherwise we couldn’t wait to leave. We arrived at 3 pm to be told that we couldn’t reserve a table in the restaurant, there was no bar but there was a picnic basket which we could eat outside. The breakfast at 20 euros was the worst we have experienced in France and was self service, in a four star hotel!! There was a window broken in our room and when we reported it we were told that it had been broken since June but they were waiting to get it fixed. I could go on and on and I am amazed at the high scores that this hotel is getting on your website.

The hotel is in a beautiful building and set within the grounds of the ancient abbey. Guests have free access to this through until 2 a.m. It is a wonderful experience at night when all the crowds have left. The hotel restaurant (see separate review) is wonderful. Breakfast is simple with a relatively small range of items but the quality of each is first class. Our room was a little tired with some very visible wear and tear in places. The room safe did not work. The bathroom floor, very disappointing, was dirty with the hair of the previous occupant clearly visible. The staff were all very friendly but some of the front desk seemed as though they were going through the motions to some extent. A pity, for example, that more than 90 minutes after asking for two extra pillows for the room I had to go to reception to remind them. Overall a good stay in a good hotel but there is a lot of competition out there and I think they need to “up their game” a little.

Past reviews set high expectations however do not arrive on a Monday or Tuesday as the restaurant does not operate so I cannot speak of that. The options are then very limited - no room service other than a pinic basket option of a couple of haute cusine dishes. Not suited to young children at all. Breakfast was okay but the only meat available was sliced duck! The rooms although comfortable have no aircon as such so with 25c we did not get a restful night. Staff were attentive & helpful. Left feeling it was an overpriced stay and not really value for money despite the attractive surroundings.

This hotel is fantastic in every way from the warm welcome at reception to the excellently designed 'Jardin' room looking out over the herb garden. The magnificent Michelin starred restaurant is just a 30 second stroll across the garden. Added bonus of a Son et Lumiere all around the abbey in the evening after our meal. Faultless!
