Staff were very welcoming and helpful and the food was very good. Surprised that the grounds looked unloved
An excellent little hotel with a very relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, good food in the heart of the countryside. Close with a car to many beautiful places (Brantome!) It was perfect.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, the evening meal we had was very nice, we were made to feel very welcome.
opportunity to have a rest the price is abit higher than it must be
Motel offered meal in the evening which is essential as few restaurants around. Nice countryside aspect. Main entrance door to room is glass and only covered by lace curtain; felt exposed!
Both Pierre and Nathalie were very friendly, and made us feel most welcome. Pierre was very helpful when we had a complaint about our car hire, and he insisted on ringing the firm to sort the problem out. He also offered us good advice on all sorts of things. Both he and Nathalie were very patient with our limited French! Our twin room was rather on the small side.
peace and quite/ food
This family run hotel was exceptional. Father and daughter were extremely friendly and helpful in all regards. Have the courage to try the chef's special cuisine. The food was second to none. Speaking basic schoolboy French was no hindrance to the exceptional service myself and my partner from London received. We were made to feel most welcome.
Very friendly staff Room felt a little damp.
The magical position beside the river and the room ambience
the location was super. Breakfast was overpriceed.
The comfort afforded by the room was excellent as was the general standard of the hotel. The setting is superb and ideal to relax in. The staff were excellent, being friendly and informative. The room facilities would have been enhanced by a coffee making facility. Since we do not take formal breakfast this is preferred to service.
Great location and excellent cusine (although expensive). Friendly stuff and good room.
Lovely location,charming inn.excellent cuisine and attentive staff - our 2nd stay
Very confortable room and the air con was very important Very expensive breakfast
Beautiful location, dining on the terrace overlooking the river is a must. I liked the small touches that the hotel made to make your stay extra special No outdoor swimming pool
We went there for a special occasion, a treat, and we were thoroughly spoilt. It is expensive - very by French standards, but well worth the experience.
The friendly staff throughout, the delightful location of the restaurant and the quality of the food.
Great welcome and was upgraded to a better room because of limited number of guest staying at the time. I was the only diner in the restaurant, but still 3 staff members made my meal the most memorable I have every had! The food was extraordinary and the presentation was superb. Every detail was exquisite. Property is difficult to locate on gps and because there are no signs on road into Brantome to show where it is. It is a fair distance outside the town.
Beautiful relaxing setting. Elegantly refurbished buildings. Food excellent if a little pricey. Ideally located for the region and Brantome, which you can walk into during daylight. Owners could not have been more welcoming and helpful.
Very beautiful hotel run by a lovely family who make every effort to make your stay feel very special. Their restaurant is excellent the service is superb.
Charming family run hotel. Great food. Very friendly.
A warm welcome followed by excellent service and food ; it was my wife's birthday and the stay fulfilled all we both could have wanted .
Very quiet, lovely bathroom, beautiful setting.
A fantastic end to a great week. A big thank you to Oliver and his family for making our stay a great one. Great hosts and a big shout to Oliver's dad who must be one of the best chefs kicking about. It's been a long time since I ate food as good. It's not often you come across a guy who cares as much about the food he cooks. Awesome. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
The owners were delightful and most helpful with their advice about nearby villages of interest. Our meals were beautifully served and delicious and our room was comfortable and attractive..
We found the setting very nice. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was first class although a little expensive.
Excellent welcome,food and service beyond reproach,relaxed atmosphere
Old traditional feel about hotel and furnishings - antique but quaint. No
ambiance,delightful staff.relaxing luxurious surroundings,absolutely enjoyable experience.
The location is the prime asset, on the banks of the Loiret, yet only 5 miles from Orleans centre
Everything about Le Moulin du Roc was wonderful. The staff, the lovely property, the food, etc. We stopped in between a night further south in the Perigord region and the Loire Valley. I would have happily stayed another night or two to relax!
It's a lovely castle, very quiet, very elegant
yes - hotel in need of an up date and therefore not good value for money. Dinner was overpriced.
Staff attentive Tatty - broken bin in bathroom. Paintwork peeling, stains on ceiling. Originally put in gatehouse which is a fair way from chateau especially in the pouring rain - but moved when we complained. Chateau in need of some TLC.
The whole setting was fantastic. Lovely walk to the nearest village. Great that we could take our dogs. The day we arrived after a very long drive, all we wanted was a simple meal in the evening. Unfortunately the menu cost was 59 euros regardless of whether you only had a main course of 20 euros. I think this should be pointed out on your web site as the hotel is in a very remote area and if, like us, you have been driving all day the last thing you want to do is go out to eat. Needless to say we did not eat at the hotel again, which was a shame as the food was excellent. A bit more flexibility on the menu side would be great.
Beautiful location beautiful chateau fantastic food and service staff very very helpful.Very peaceful and quiet great to get away from the stresses of life. Close to many beautiful towns in france Website shows pool table this has been sold also shows pool but we went in may/june and pool not open very disappointed especially for our son. Heating also turned off and weather not warm enough so room was cold.Hotel did give us 2 fan heaters to use. Also although the food was superb not children food friendly.
It was a beautiful setting and because we stayed in the gate lodge we could come and go as we pleased. The gate lodge has separate individual rooms to stay in and the front door has to be locked by the key at all times and all the windows downstairs have bars so it is a major concern, in the case of an emergency a key has to be used to get out and in a panic situation it would be a major concern of mine. Obviously no health and safety officer has checked it, if they even have health and safety officers in France! He who maketh the rules does not necessarily have to abide by them!
A lovely location. The village of Bourdeilles is about 3km away and is fabulous. The whole area is lovely and very quiet in comparison to the UK, especially on the roads. If you want hotel room with air-con and 24hr room service this part of France is not for you; though if you want to unwind, visit picturesque medieval towns here, there and everywhere then this is the place. We also try to converse in French as far as possible and haven't yet met any rude or off-hand locals in years of visiting France. It is exactly as you would expect, as comfortable as the context would allow - ie not overly done-up and ruined but consequently no air-con or power-shower.
Splendid view No shower-in general toilet room under average- no hair dryer-
drove through a field of sunflowers and corn, then reached this amazing castle......beautiful.Large spacious old fashioned room.Great experience.highly recomended!!!!!
The Chateau was beautiful and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Food was fantastic, noy cheap but well worth the money we paid.
The service and helpfulness of the staff was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and there are a lot of 5 star establishments that could take a leaf out of their book. The rooms are large, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Last but not least you are right in the centre of town but in a quiet street with very little street noise. Superb B&B!
The hotel was in an excellent position right in the heart of this beautiful tourist town. The owners were extremely helpful, friendly and charming. The room was very elegant and spacious along as were the bathroom facilities. The continental breakfast was declicious which is included in the price.I would return here again and again. I recommend this hotel very highly.
This was a beautiful place: the house, the setting,the welcome and care, the location, the food, the rooms, the decor. We thought it would require a car journey to Brantome, but it was actually within pleasant and easy walking distance. Personally, I did not like the feel of the waterproof cover under the sheet on the bed, but I appreciate the reasons for it being there.Nothing else!
Hospitable welcome and picturesque location Nothing
This boutique hotel is in a beautiful, peaceful location with excellent grounds and lots of character, but only a 10 minute walk from the lovely town centre of Brantome. The hosts made us feel extremely welcome and did whatever they could to help with any requirements we had (umbrellas unfortunately, and torches for the walk to town were particularly helpful). If I were to be very critical, some of the decoration in the bedroom and bathroom is getting a little tired and could soon do with refreshing. A couple of housekeeping points were overlooked too, but in no way did this spoil the stay. We will definately return.
Superb in every aspect!
Lovely relaxing atmosphere, a real feeling of indulgence and luxury and very welcoming hosts. I thought the charge for the extra beds for the children was a bit much as we had already paid for a family room.
personal attention on arrival and during stay. very helpfull and interested in guest comfort. immediate response to any request.
very tranquil site, lovely view from terrace, comfortable beds, very good food tho concentrated on foie gras and duck typical of the region. Would like more vegetarian options. Should be noted as dog friendly in case anyone averse.
Owners very friendly and helpful, Very nice loaction in pretty countryside. dinner was pleasant without reaching the level of our previous meals in the Dordogne. Decor in the restaurant could do with an update but may be that I am just not happy seeing lots of stuffed animals. Dinner although pleasant was quite expensive.
I liked the area it was set in and the relaxed area. The staff were very helpful,courteous and accommodating and the food was excellent. The bed was far to soft and uncomfortable - it was like sleeping on a bouncy castle!! - but everything else about the room and the hotel was very good.
Superb grounds and excellent cuisine
We liked the location and charm of the hotel in a very peaceful setting.we liked the owner and his wife and the staff were very kind.the resturant was very old world french but the menu perhaps after the same for three days should be more varied the bedrooms were very tired as was the bathrooms
