We organised our holiday is we could spend a night in this hotel after reading the positive reviews in Tripadvisor and were very please did. The main building is unassuming from the outside, but once inside the decor and ambience is very special. We were upgraded to a Grand Confort room. At first I was daunted by all the steps leading up to the room which, as others have said, is in a separate annexe at the back of the hotel. However, we were relieved and delighted when Florence told us we could drive our car around and practically park outside the door.
The room was one of the most comfortable we stayed in during out 3 weeks in France. The walk in shower was particularly welcome. The furnishings and finish in our room and the restaurant were excellent. On complementing Florence in the interior decorating, she told us that this was her special interest, and that this was her home, not just a hotel and business. Her love of the place was very evident.
We enjoyed dinner in the restaurant, with many local dishes on offer. We particularly enjoyed the walnut wine aperitif, and the walnut butter with the nibbles. The foie gras was superb.
Breakfast was delicious including small bowls of fresh fruit salad, and very fresh baguettes, pastries and cake.
Brantome is a very pretty town and well worth a visit. There is also an easily accessible laundromat.
Hopefully Florence has found some staff to help her out, as she is working so hard to maintain the high standard of service. Not only did she greet us in arrival, wait on us at dinner, she also waited on us at breakfast. We wish her and her husband all the best with this venture. Highly recommended.
