We were fortunate enough to stay at the Moulin de Connelles on our way back from a trip to the Loire in May 08. The hotel is 10 minutes from the Autoroute on the South side of Rouen, and as such is perfectly located for stop-overs on the way back north.
The hotel is in a fantastic location, right on the river, and the swallows fly all around with their unmistakable calls. We had room nine, a small suite on the second floor, with views up the river and a small balcony.
The room was pleasant but in no way ostentatious. The bathroom was very nicely done, and had a very decent shower, though we were a little surprised by the fact that the bathroom istefl did not have a door. Instead it opened onto the lobby inside the main door to the corridoor, with a door between that and the bedroom.
This hotel is run in a very friendly manner, and we were made to feel very welcome indeed, arriving as we did, tired and a little wrung out after 3 hours of high speed driving in an open-topped car.
I have to say that the jewel in the crown of the whole experience was the restaurant, where the menu was both comprehensive and thoughtful. We had a fabulous meal, and the wine was not expensive. Service in the restaurant was very good indeed.
My only regret is that we had not allowed more time for exploring the gardens and generally chilling out, as this seemed to me to be the perfect place for doing just that. As it was, we arrived at 6pm and were gone before 9:30am the next morning, which was a shame, but we plan to return with a little more time to kill.
