What makes this hotel so special - as with all great hotels - is the staff.Nothing is too much trouble and they are all so cheerful and friendly it is like coming home each time we visit.The food is excellent, the rooms splendid and the attention to detail spot on. With English management - the lovely Sally and husband Paul - and french everything else it combines the very best of English with the best of France. A magical combination.

We had booked a table for four for 8:15 pm. Arrived at 8:20, each one of us ordered a main course, mineral water, and wine. The latter were served rather quickly, but the courses arrived 55 minutes after we had arrived.
Although the food was good, waiting so long spoiled our pleasure. We didn’t feel cared for, nobody came to say something like: we’re sorry it is taking so long...
The Maitre d’ was like a tornado going or rather hurrying from one table to the other, opening a bottle here, serving there.. at one point his movements were so quick that a metal bottle-saucer flew from our table, but he didn’t care to pick it up (or apologize, for that token).
This experience and the long time waiting to be served didn’t contribute to a relaxing outing with friends. Too bad.
Four main courses, two servings of cheese, two coffees, one bottle of wine, one bottle of mineral water, I paid €155.

Thought we'd try TripAdvisor #1 restaurant in La Chartre and were not disappointed. Food was excellent, staff efficient and always present.
Chef talked to a few choice customers, would have been nice to go around all tables.
All in all well worth a visit.

We arrived here in the early hours having left a wedding celebration.
We had a pretty minuscule room, but the bed was comfy.
The facilities were good.... there was everything you could need/ want.
We left quite early to get back to the wedding brunch!!!
So tho we had a few hours sleep we didn't really make the most of the hotel!!!
Staff were very pleasant and friendly.

Thank Emma W

The hotel is quaint and charming, the service attentive but not overly so, the food is splendid and the wine list exceptional. Worth a detour from the motorway if you are travelling through France to experience this genuine 'French' gem - pride in service, excellent local food and 'accueil'!
