With a stay at Grand Hôtel de Solesmes in Solesmes, you'll be a 1-minute walk from St Peter's Abbey of Solesmes and 6 minutes by foot from Abbey of St Cecile. Featured amenities include luggage storage, a safe deposit box at the front desk, and an elevator (lift). Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Perfect location to visit Monsetery of Solesmes. Reception staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.
Cons: Restaurant food was good but service was chaotic and slow with two serious errors over our order. It was wrongly assumed we were on Demi pension so at first not offered the menu. Then one dish that was brought was not what we ordered. The chef was blamed!
Pros: Great service, very quiet, lovely location. A gem of a hotel.
Pros: This was an EXCELLENT hotel and I will come back. The location was right across the road from the 2 monasteries -St cecilia nuns & St Peters monks.perfect for anyone visiting the abbey. Very peaceful beautiful walks nearby along the sarthe River and in the hills. Visit chapelle du nid and chemin d'abbaye, and belle Vue especially. decor is beautiful and sumptuous with gold and red everywhere. Rooms are huge and all had private balcony outside, mines also had two ensuites - separate toilet room and bathroom room. In the room there is a lot of storage. Rooms were heated to a good warm temperature of around 23 degrees. Many plug sockets, very clean, room had well stocked soft drink and spirit minibar. Room keyrings are shaped like the pipe organ at St Peters monastery opposite. The restaurant was very sumptuously decorated and quite high end (bring smart clothes for dinner). The dinner menu was gourmet French style with things like canard fois gras. you can have room service from the same menu without being charged the British "tray charge". However I am vegetarian and the only thing on the menu I could eat was dessert. They offered to make me something special but I didn't bother. I highly advise bringing your own food or going out if you are vegan or vegetarian (this is actually for the whole locality) The breakfast was Amazing and worth 14 euro. It is a continental buffet wide selection of hot and cold drinks and juices and Real coffee.orange is freshly squeeze with bits in it. Wide selection of pastries croissants jams Nutella cakes yoghurts meats and cheeses and cereals. Easy to get a table for breakfast as not crowded. The hours of breakfast 7am up to 11am which is very flexible. Staff were amazing. They all spoke English and were very helpful and keen to make your stay great even offered me a lift in car The gym is a converted hotel room which you book out so it's for you alone.
Cons: The location is perfect for visiting the two monasteries. But it is half hour walk to the shop or any outside restaurant (there is a small quiet e bar/alcohol shop nearby) and an hour walk to train station. So bring a car. There is some nice walks but not a whole lot going on here. So it wouldn't be a good place for a youngsters party holiday. Everything in the area closes on Sunday and it is very hard to get any taxi and the hotel restaurant is also closed Sunday night. therefore book your Sunday taxis a week in advance and include taxis to any restaurant or shop for food on Sunday. There are only three taxis in the area - philver, Saboliens and besoin - some work with more than one firm. Book in advance for all journeys and they do not have websites or speak English therefore you will have to call them and book on the phone in French h. Sncf taxis, mytaxi, i taxi, and allotaxi app, Mon transport all do not serve this area. However the hotel is able to book you taxis while you are staying The jacuzzi in the gym was too cold with no way to change temperature For the brits - there is no kettle or hot drinks facility in the room or elsewhere, you will have to order tea in room service at 5 euro. The monastery bells chime extremely loudly and it is hard to sleep though it. I liked this but others may not. There were no vegetarian options on the restaurant dinner menu or room service so vegetarians book cab for dinner or bring your own. WiFi was not that good, slow and often cutting out and reloading but it was free so that's good. And necessary since phone signal round here is variable
Pros: Bed was comfortable. Good breakfast. Great location next to the abbey.
Cons: No air conditioning so the room was too hot. The carpets on the stairs need to be renewed.
Pros: Very convenient for our visit. Would be nice for a weekend. Lovely garden for pre-dinner drinks etc.. We had excellent dinners in the restaurant. Good car parking.
Pros: Staff, food, breakfast, location, parking
Cons: Nowhere to put suitcases whilst unloading
Pros: Hospitality & restaurant.
Cons: We used satnav to locate hotel, but made the mistake of only putting in the post code and road name. The satnav took us to Sable sur Sarthe which also has the same post code and road of the same name whereas the hotel is in Solesmes a small town a few kilometres away.
Pros: Good location, excellent dinner in the hotel.
Cons: Restaurant not open on Sunday - but didn't know this until after I booked
Cons: Breakfast was meagre and coffee, which was extraordinarily weak, had to be searched for. Small detail, but : Breakfast!
Pros: Very nice hotel with pleasant staff. Good restaurant.
Cons: No air conditioning.
Pros: The town was pretty
Cons: Bathroom smelt of drains, pigeons roosting in the roof above the bedroom, cooing for most of the day and evening. Shower and sink waste water did not drain away. Very slow WiFi.
Pros: Traditionally French. Good location. Clean and showed signs of fairly recent positive maintenance.
Pros: Bed was comfy. Staff very helpful and went out of their way to ensure you had all you needed.
Pros: The breakfast was lovely. The shower was good. The taste in decor was simple but classy.
Cons: The bed and pillows were not very comfortable. The protector on the mattress was plastic so made the night uncomfortabley sweaty. The town was limited in its amenities, nowhere to get a meal in the evening.
Pros: Very friendly welcome despite their limited English and our limited French. Room spacious and comfortable but only one pillow each supplied - ask for more if required. Only one 'plat du jour' and two or three desserts for evening meal but extremely tasty and very good value. Bar stock limited - no G&T - but good wine. A little off beaten track but easy to find, safe, off road parking to rear of hotel and an easy distance from Dieppe ferry for a first night.
Cons: The weather!
With a stay at Hôtel Inn Design Sablé-sur-Sarthe Resto Novo in Sable-sur-Sarthe, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Abbey of St Cecile and St Peter's Abbey of Solesmes. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Dinner and breakfast were delicious. There were just made orange juice. Cozy and quiet room.
Cons: Door to the shower haven’t been closed Enough. Result - water on the floor.
Pros: Very good breakfast
Pros: It was well placed near the centre of the town and had on site parking.
Cons: The reception was closed when we arrived, not opening till 6.30. We did gain access by ringing a number and being informed that the room was open and the key inside, they were motel style rooms with outside access. There was a notice outside the hotel saying that the restaurant opened at 7.30 on Sundays but when we went at that time we found it wasn't opening and it was difficult to find a meal elsewhere. As we had been travelling all day we needed a meal. The exterior of the property was in a poor state of repair with no gutters so we were kept awake for much of the night by the noise of dripping water. There were two paper cups in the room with tea bags and coffee sachets but there was no kettle. I guess someone could have pinched it while the room was unlocked prior to our arrival.
Pros: Location close to Sable town able to walk in ten minutes
Cons: Hotel in a shady location however room not Air conditioned as needed in hotter weather
Pros: Tea tray and bottled water provided. Good bathroom facilities with easy to use shower. Very clean and very quiet despite being near a busy road. Easily accessible with good parking. Very close to the town centre and the river. It was nice to be able to take breakfast and drinks on the terrace overlooking the garden. Very good value for money.
Cons: Bed was a good size but mattress was a little hard for my liking. Not enough pillows although I could have asked for more.
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Bed very uncomfortable
Pros: breakfast was excellent, very close to shops and restaurants, staff very welcoming and friendly and very helpful.
Pros: convenient location for 1 night stop over driving to south frence quiet and peaceful
