“A real gem”
Reviewed September 29, 2010

Small enough to be intimate but large enough to have all mod cons. A special place with very attentive staff and an amazing restaurant - our 2 year had never eaten such tasty (and expensive) filet steak before! If you want something something special and a bit different, near Paris, go here. But for those who find stairs difficult beware - there are steep stairs and no lifts.

Spending 8 days in Normandy in 5 different locations, this property was our favorite. Karine has done a wonderful job of creating an oasis retreat in some of the prettiest countryside in the world. Our room had wonderful cross ventilation of two open windows. Not a single bug must exist in this part of the world, because we had no problems whatsoever. We awoke to hear all of the birds chirping. What a delight!

The dining was wonderful. Pre-dinner drinks on the patio looking at the beauty of the Seine River was special.

We used this as a base to visit Giverny and Les Andyles. It worked perfectly for that.
Though it might be hard to find using maps, our GPS knew exactly where it was and got us to the hotel using the most obscure but beautiful country roads imaginable with no problem. We just had to trust it!

The hotel was a bit tricky to find but its worth the search. The hotel is in a beautiful location and there was a warm welcome when we arrived. On checking in we were informed that we had been upgraded to a room with a jacquzi and terrace - it was a gorgeous room. We were staying with friends and all decided to opt for the set meal - in for a penny, in for a pound and all that - and we were pleased that we did as it was a wonderful experience - absolutely delicious from start to finish. We all agreed that even though it was a bit pricey, it was worth every penny for such a treat.

What a lovely place. I have been going to this hotel for almost 10 years and it keeps on getting better. First, its location: literally in the middle of nowhere so ideal for silence and quiet. Then, the hotel itself is incredebly romantic: besides being on a river, the inside of the hotel is very cosy (wood frames, warm colors on the walls, fabulous jacuzzis in the rooms, lovely fire place in the lobby...). The owners are also incredibly nice: always helpfull and keen to make your journey memorable.
Finally, the restaurant: traditionnal normandy food, i.e. not the lightest necessarily but it is tasty and with personality. Try the warm oysters with camembert sauce- it is to die for.
To summarize: a very good value for money place where you can take an excellent time with your loved one while being taking care of by generous hosts.

Le Moulin de Connelles is old world luxury located beside the Seine and surrounded by some truly picturesque French countryside.
We only had the pleasure of spending 2 days in this beautiful old house. From start to finish this was a 5 star experience. On arrival, we were greeted by the proprietor Karine, who was without doubt, the most helpful and inviting host we have ever encountered in France. This lady was busy greeting all guests on arrival yet she also juggled her duties and managed to serve drinks and nibbles to the guests who were relaxing on the decking overlooking the beautiful river which flows under the house. Again, her effortless warmth when serving guests was as flawless as her welcoming skills.
The house has many facilities including swimming pools, tennis courts, a barbeque area, row boats to sail up and down the river, to name but a few. Most of all it was a haven for relaxation, most guests took to the decking area with their books to unwind. The house is also very close to Giverny, Claude Monet’s home, which is certainly worth a visit.
Our package included breakfast and dinner, both which were delicious. The wine list catered for all budgets and the service was superb. The bedrooms were certainly in keeping with the rest of house, there was no modern touch to them which I was grateful for as it would certainly have taken from the feel of the old world luxury which is created so well throughout the common areas of the hotel. The bathrooms were well equipped with toiletries, the bed was extremely comfortable. The house was blissfully silent at night which was fantastic for getting a good nights sleep!
We genuinely loved this hotel and hope some day to return. It was a bit of effort trying to get there but it was worth the trouble!

Every now and then a hotel comes along that ticks all the boxes....and for my husband and I the Moulin de Connelles did exactly that. It is such a lovely hotel. We stayed for a night in one of the suites and wished we had been staying longer. After haring around France for 3 weeks in our E-Type we felt the need for some serious pampering and were not disappointed.
The "meet and greet" we received was the best of the holiday. The owner is a lovely lady who makes it her job to welcome you and make you feel comfortable in this super property. Her English is impeccable.
Our room was great! It had a small sitting area, large jacuzzi and even larger bed which was incredibly comfortable and, I kid you not, a double shower! We didn't get time to use the swimming pool but it looked clean and well-kept.
Food and service in the restaurant was superb. The wine list covered all bases and prices.
Would we stay again - definitely! It's down as one of our favourite hotels in France. Can't say more than that really.

This is a wonderful place in a really lovely location. Its pretty expensive, but you get a country house experience, and I could spend all day watching the Seine drift ever so slowly by. We were in room 3, which is not large, but had a nice view of the river. The bed was comfortable, but the bathroom was a touch cramped and was showing some signs of age. The relaxed calm atmosphere and the wonderful meals made up for any minor niggles, and the people at the hotel were very keen to help. There is a good swimming pool on the island, not vast, but perfectly swimmable with sun loungers. Also there are a couple of rowing boats freely available to use (and bikes, although we did not use these). We generally ate from the cheapest menu and were very impressed with all aspects of the meals. They are very flexible with the wine, so we were able to keep a bottle over 2 meals, drink only half a bottle, etc. We had the Menu Surprise on our last evening, a major undertaking of 8 courses (mostly pretty small of course). We were very pleased with our very memorable stay here, and recommend it highly if you have got the budget.
