We ate at this hotel restaurant because the roads were closed which led into the main town. The food was very good, in fact the best the moules I had tasted for a long time, however, the ambience was spoilt by a surly waitress. It made us feel that she was doing us a favour for allowing us to eat... More

Four of us had lunch here yesterday. We all found the food to be good and the moules frites were excellent. The problem with this restaurant was the attitude of the waitress. She was miserable throughout, dismissing my attempts to be helpful and pass our plates across the table to her with a resounding 'Non' and a wave of her... More

We ate at this hotel whilst visiting Avranches and I must first point out that we only dined there because most other restaurants in town were shut that night. On entering the hotel we almost laughed at the dated decor but as the evening progressed it turned out the biggest laugh would be at our expense. Just like an earlier... More

This was a great stop for a quick lunch while on our way to tour the Normandy Beaches. Avranches is on the Tour de France route and they have a neat bicycle sculpture just across the street. The food at this restaurant was fresh and tasty, typical selections that you would expect in most high quality cafes in France. Reasonable... More

My wife and I were visiting the local area and whilst we were near Avranches we decided to make a visit. After looking for a restaurant for our evening meal we decided to choose the Au Jardin Des Plantes as it seemed popular. The warning signs appeared as soon as we ordered our food. The waitress was miserable, ignorant and... More

I have stayed here several times and always enjoy it. Each time I stayed the rooms were comfortable but quite small but perfectly adequate for me. The restaurant is very pleasant but can get very busy and the service slows right up. But the food has always been good and tasty. The location of this hotel is great as its... More
