We made a reservation over the phone and the receptionist was very bad at english but the reservation went through at least. With this in mind we thought it might be difficult as non french speaking guests at Moulin Hideux, but when we arrived it wasn't a problem at all. The super friendly staff was good at english and very helpful.
We had the dinner package which included lodging, dinner and breakfast. We got the room in the top of the tower. From the room we had a magnificent view of the garden and the swan pond. The room was spacious and everything (except the small TV) was in early 19 century style, very romantic. The bathroom is probably the best we've ever seen! Very big with two zinks, bathtub and even an bidé. :)
In the afternoon we just relaxed in the garden where the butler took orders for drinks and we just enjoyed the silence and sun.
Before the dinner we had an appertif in the lounge. Accompanied with the drinks were plenty of snacks - cheesy crusted breadsticks, shrimp with marinated vegetables and popcorn. Meanwhile you can look at the menu and tell the waiter how you'd like your meat cooked for dinner. They truly make you feel like kings and queens!
The dinner was spectacular! The kitchen served fouie gras with ratatoille as an appertizer. The first course was king crab with radish foam. OMG! It was one of the best dishes we've ever eaten! Second course was grilled cod and clam soup. OMG again! Simply amazing! Main course was tender duck with a very tasty sause, esparagous and some strange wheat hotchpotch. When it was time for the cheeses they brought an entire cart with at least 15 different cheeses to choose among! We tried maybe 10 and most were excellent, especially the parmesan! For desserts they also brought in a cart with all sorts of desserts to choose from. The wines that accompanied the food was great and they refilled the glasses several times. The kitchen at Moulin Hideux is well worth their Michelin star!
Although the bed was comfortable we had trouble sleeping because we were so full! :)
They breakfast can either be served in the garden, in the restaurant or in your room. We had it in the restaurant and honestly it wasn't in par with the rest of the experience. It was ok though.
We are in our 30s and ALL other guests were 60+, but we don't mind. It's just a great place to take it easy and spend some romantic quality time.
