My partner and I stayed at the Moulin over the new year on a 3 night package. The package was pricey compared to other deals in the area, but seeing as we had stayed at the hotel twice before and enjoyed the experience we decided to give it a whirl.
The room was as expected (twin with all the usual amenities)but quite cold, luckily i had been expecting this and had brough my own fan heater as last time they did not have enough to go around.
Unfortunately, as they were fully booked for the whole 3 days there was not enought hot water to go around and showers were luke warm at best - quite frustrating when you are paying over the odds. You expect this type of problem at a low budget B&B.
The food was mediocre - quite disappointing - as the main reason we go to the moulin was for the food but now seems to have gone downhill.
The public rooms downstairs were all cold - they are unable to light their log fires due to Health and Safety reasons !!!!! so they use a couple of aged fan heaters in the main dining room to keep the chill off.
On new year eve there were ladies in all their finery having to drape their their outdoor winter coats over themshelves just to keep warm.
On the night of the 1st (buffet night) we decided not to eat in the main dining room (even though we had paid £60 each for the cold buffet) and ate in the pub bar. The reason being the total lack of any atmosphere, it was cold, no music, with not a hot platter to be seen.
Moulin seems to have lost its focus on what made it a great place to stay. They dont seem to be bothered about their guests experience anymore.
