Stayed on our way back to uk with our young daughter. Reception staff were very welcoming, it was our second visit. Room was well appointed and very comfortable after a refurbishment in April. Pleasant gardens to sit in and have a drink. So far so good. We then went in for dinner. We love cooking and eating good food and what followed was remarkable, beautifully cooked and presented by an interested restaurant team who went to great lengths to explain in great detail what we were eating and how it had been prepared. For example the main course was pigeon breast and I was soon told at what temperature it had been cooked and for how long. Our 5 year old daughter had her own menu and was provided with plenty of entertainment in the form of crayons and paper. When it was realised that she was only going to have 1 course the head waiter asked us if we would like service quickened up to accommodate her. This was done superbly and the three of us had a wonderful meal, finishing off with ice cream for our daughter which was presented with a lit Roman candle which she loved. At this point the rest of the diners gave her a round of applause and it wasn't even her birthday ! As we left the restaurant 2 members of staff stood by the door and asked us if we had enjoyed the meal to which there could only be one answer.
In short one of our finest dining experiences and worthy of a Relais & Chateaux member.
Breakfast was good and we look forward to our next visit.
