Good location. Nice setting, calm. We had a "chambre privilege". Room apparently pleasant and reasonably well furnished. The flat screen TV was the smallest I had ever seen, about the size of a laptop screen. We didn't care as were not interested in TV lthat night. What really let the room down was the bathroom, which looked absolutely great BUT had a toilet seat too small for the toilet, such that it slides to the left or the right - annoying and uncomfortable. The following morning, the toilet flush system stopped working! Unpleasant ...!
The shower (in the bath) with a moving panel designed to limit flooding of the bathroom during a shower, resulted in considerable flooding as the seals all leaked. These are not enormous problems but nevertheless unpleasant and not what one expects in a hotel like this.
The restauarant, Les Oenophiles, was globally a positive experience. The food was really excellent, refined, original and well presented. The service was not up to the same standard as the kitchens. Although the food was "excellent", the service was not even average. Final surprise was the bill, which we only saw the following morning on checking out, when we noticed that two items, whiich were included in the "menu gourmand" we had chosen, had been added as separately priced items on th bill. When we pointed this out to the receptionist, the items were immediately deducted from the bill ...
This hotel could be so much better, but appears to lack serious attention to important details, which would not be difficult to fix.
