A good mid-range hotel with some really great food. Family run - it's all I want from a place local to Le Mans Races but far enough away not to be sullied by the food the French think Brits want. I always ask for local cider - served in un-labelled wine bottles - apples grown, crushed and fermented locally. Good... More

This was a great find. Recommended by friend of a friend we went as part of a table of 10. service was great from the moment we walked in and sat down.

This restaurant is most excellent. It is very simply furnished with a slight 1970/80 feel to the decor. The staff are charm personified. I chose the 31 euros menu. I started with a carpaccio of scallops. This was followed by a filet steak with a mushroom sauce, sautéed potatoes and creamed carrot. The cheese course comprised an extensive selection from...

We have been coming to this hotel for a number of years now on our way back to the UK. The rooms are pleasant and the pool, although small is good enough for a col dip after a long day driving. The food in the restaurant is superb and very good value for money. On the negative side: do not... More

This hotel was an overnight stop when driving from Calais to the Dordogne. It is well worth the detour ! The hotel rooms were clean and comfortable, the village extremly quiet and the food - simply amazing ! The chef and owner has a colourful history (Duchess of Windsor, Aga Khan, Rothchild) and it clearly shows in both the presentation... More
