We booked this hotel as a convenient hotel just outside of Paris for the New Year.We arrived at the hotel at about 8pm New Years Eve. The light was on in Reception, but there was noone there, and the door was locked. There was however, a note of the front door, but as it was in French (not unexpected) neither me or my friend could translate. I later guessed that it instructed us what to do in such an event. However, after a brief moments panic, I called the number of the hotel; no sooner had I dialled but the owner of the hotel arrived to check us in.
Checkin was the speediest I have ever seen (as a hotel receptionist myself, I have some meausre of comparrison). He instantly knew who we were, grabbed the key and he escorted us to the room.
I have to say without a shadow of a doubt that the owner is a complete star! He was the epitomy of politeness, whilst being at the same time very approachable. He spoke perfect English, thank the Lord! and so he explained about the hotel, showed us around the room when we got there, gave us information on the local area... I have to say, I was knocked speechless by the incredible level of service. For the service alone the hotel should be at least 4 star!
The room was stunning, I would guess recently refurbished, but very classicly done, very inkeeping with the historic feel that the building has. The bathroom was spotlessly clean, with underfloor heating! It has to be said, not being a morning person, nothing is nicer than stumbling bleary eyed into the bathroom and not getting the horrific cold floor feeling! Delightful!
I really cannot praise this hotel enough, it made our stay absolutely brilliant. The hotel is conveniently placed for Paris and the surrounding countryside - it's only a few kilometres to the castle where they film Merlin (also stunning, btw).
Just... wow! I'm a very happy lady after this stay, it made the traffic in Paris worthwhile! :)
