16 of us decided to use the hotel as a venue to celebrate one of our group's birthday.
It was rather unlucky that we all descended onto the hotel at the same time, along with another family who were having problems with their key. So sadly, the corteige was overwhelmed, and had to leave the desk un -manned for over 20 minutes - which was not a good start, given we'd all driven long journeys and were keen to sign in.
However, it was a perfect opportunity for me to mischievously take up residence behind the desk, assume the role of the concierge, (along with a feeble attempt at a French accent), to meet and greet the last members of our group as they arrived in reception. It was actually hilarious to see their reactions when they realised it was moi! So actually, it turned into a great, happy start!
Quite simply, the rooms were beautiful and classic. Sumptuous accommodation and furniture, clean and tidy but with character.
The dining room also echoed the charming ambience of the rooms. We had a fantastic (and very creamy) meal which consisted mainly of fish, but creatively presented by helpful waiters and waitresses. The wine was fine and the standard of the whole meal was sensational.
Given that we were a slightly rowdy excited crowd of 16 English folk, the staff were lovely as were the other (French) guests who were also enjoying a birthday celebration.
Breakfast looked good, but quite honestly I was so replete from the meal from the evening before that I couldn't eat a thing. Just lovely aromatic French coffee for me.
All in all, memorable, French, welcoming and a place I would return to gladly.
