We stayed as part of a large walking group. I would not recommend this hotel for a group. The bedrooms are of variable quality. There is also an additional 14 Euros charge for continental breakfast - good quality but overpriced.
The service in the restaurant was also poor one evening. We waited one hour for our first course – clearly the hotel kitchen could not cope with a not very full restaurant and front of house appeared understaffed. Wine by the glass is also priced at an exhorbitant level – 10 Euros for a moderate sized glass of house wine - twice the pro rata cost of the normal restaurant bottle so beware. Food was good rather than exceptional.
Overall we found the hotel management haughty and disinterested.
To balance the review, for those travelling individually the Granat room (names not numbers) is a delightful double aspect corner room, more of a junior suite with good sized bedroom, large wet- room type shower/his and hers basins and fine views towards the Abbey. The room also contains an expresso machine with capsules. The Auberge is also attractively set and the function room looks out onto a fine garden which is utilised for dining on warm summer evenings. The village of St Jean aux bois is beautiful.
