Moulin Le Cygne
Reviewed 28 March 2015

This is a delightful place to stay while exploring the World War I battlefields in the area. The Moulin le Cygne has free parking and wifi, wonderfully decorated rooms that are comfortable and spacious and a gracious hostess. The adjaent restaurant has good-quality food and provides the bountiful breakfast. The grounds are beautiful and you stay in a beautifully redone old mill. The European beer museum is across the street, although we did not visit. There is absolutely nothing that could have made this wonderful place better.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 1 and loved it. Nice bedroom and bathroom, kitchenette and sitting room. All the a...

The Moulin Le Cygne has been restored to its former glory by the current owners. There is nothing much to choose between any of the four apartments. They are all superb and well equipped with everything that you could possibly want. There is plenty of hot water for a bath / shower - and the shower works well with plenty of flow and pressure.

We stayed in apartment 3 on the first floor with views to the front and rear. The bed is exceptionally comfortable and the bedding is good quality. We slept very well throughout our week-long stay. A good hair dryer is provided in the bathroom. The kitchen has a very good Philips Senseo Coffee Maker too. What a boon that was for coffee. A nearby Lidl supermarket stocks a full range of coffee bags too. Their wine range is pretty spectacular as well.

The adjoining Tavern run by Sebastian and Shirley is truly an asset. It is THE BEST in Stenay town. No other restaurant comes close unless you leave town and travel 5 km. We ate in the Tavern everyday that it was open. Mostly dinner but we ate lunch on a Saturday. Fresh produce superbly cooked and presented attractively on the plate. There is generally a choice of three starters and three mains with a different variety each day. The wine list is sensible and relatively inexpensive.

Everything about the Moulin Le Cygne and the Tavern represents excellent value for money and we heartily recommend both.

There are three Boulangeries within walking distance but the nearest is probably the best. Fresh breads and patisseries everyday. Open from 06h30 most days. Sells ham, butter, cheese and milk too so you can have breakfast in the apartments if you wish - the coffee maker comes into its own here!

Car parking is directly in front of the premises off the road in a private cul-de-sac. We considered it secure.

Room Tip: There is little to choose between the apartments. Numbers 3 and 4 are first floor. Numbers 1 and 2 a...

We stayed 3 nights. The apartment had a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath (with tub/shower). It was very clean and well-equipped, with a welcoming bottle of wine. Although the building is very old, it was perfectly restored. Nice views of the garden, and very quiet. The adjoining tavern had great dinners and breakfasts. We visited the American cemetery at Argonne and several interesting towns, castles and churches in the area. This was our favorite place to stay.

A restored mill on a beautiful river walking distance from the lovely downtown of Stenay. Large rooms with kitchens and relaxing living rooms make this place much better than a typical hotel.
A huge bonus is the excellent new restaurant adjacent to the inn and the European Beer Museum just a short walk away. Highly recommend this place as a great base from which to explore the whole area!

We stayed in one of the delightful apartments at the old mill over Christmas for a week and in pretty wet and grey weather could not have been more comfortable. The apartment was just right for a romantic couple, with views over the river Meuse and woodland, a spacious bedroom, well-fitted bathroom and an open-plan lounge-kitchen, all with beams and period furnishings. The lounge had a log fire - logs provided - and the apartment had central heating too, independently controlled. The kitchen while small was well-equipped: we cooked a full Christmas lunch with all the trimmings! Mme la Patronne Rina taked good care of the property, with plenty of fresh towels and niceties like a welcome bottle of wine and mini Christmas tree and candles, plus an invite to a special Christmas Day champagne breakfast. TV had only the news in English, but we found a Dutch channel which had plenty of movies in English - so worth channel-hopping!
We loved the location - handy for the pretty little historic town and good supermarkets and local shops, and for exploring the region: historic Reims, for instance, and battlefield sites.
A truly relaxing place to stay. We'd go back!

Room Tip: The website is very well illustrated and all four apartments seem as attractive and quiet - no noise...
