Superb restaurant disappointing hotel.

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Sep 16, 2023
We spent 2 weeks traveling in France and stayed overnight on our way from SW France to St Malo.

If this review was about the restaurant it would be 5 stars, the dinner was superb and the chef and staff should be commended. We know the French love food and the care, taste and presentation of the dinner was unique and exquisite.

If the review was about the hotel we would however have given it no better than 3 stars. Other reviews list out the positives and we agree, friendly helpful staff, a small green oasis in a commercial area by a motorway, very easy access. Safe parking. Quirkily decorated, clean. We arrived at 4.30pm and sat outside reading in the sun in pleasant surroundings.

For my wife and I it started a debate about are we looking for a good nights sleep or a cultural experience?

I would hate to own a private hotel because the branded travel hotels have raised the bar so high. So where this hotel doesn’t measure up is in bedroom investment where the branded hotels excel. No air con, (difficult to sleep as the room was too hot) only 3 plug sockets in the room and as one was for the tv and another for a light which was needed. Bed not up to best standard. Inadequate lighting ie difficult to read in bed as no bed side spots etc. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room. No safe. Bathroom adequate and quaint but needs updating. Modest size room. Very average breakfast.

We stayed for 4 nights and our experience was very positive. Our rooms were decorated individually which our children and myself loved as we were in the Jaguar car room!
There is a lovely pool that we swam in every morning.
The grounds are also delightful with jumping fish and a beautiful swan called Matilda in one of the large ponds.
The food in the restaurant is mind blowing with amazing flavour combinations. We had moule one night which my wife really enjoyed.
Can't wait to go back again and try out another room.

Room tip: Don't forget your towel when you go to the pool.

We used this as an overnight stay on way to the Gers. What a fantastic hotel in a beautiful town. The Arc of Germanicus on the south side of the river was an amazing surprise.

The hotel: great accommodation, lovely welcoming staff and an absolutely beautiful dinner in an amazing setting by the lake watching Mathilde the swan and her three duck companions. We would definitely visit again.

I have no doubt that we are not the only travellers who wish to break a long car journey. Being barely 5 minutes off the A10/E5 places this hotel in an ideal position. A grand entrance and a drive along a tree-lined way, sweeps you completely away from the traffic of Acquitaine. Clearings amonst the trees provide parking areas and for Tesla owners, charging points though sadly none available for other models of electric car yet. At the top of the drive is set this delightful hotel. The decor is typical of a country house. The rooms comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast - quite one of the best we have had in France, was taken in a dining room overlooking 2 small lakes, within the hotel grounds. Breakfast orders taken on arrival, were served in individual wire baskets and placed on side tables by one's own dining table. A truly delightful stay. We have already made a reservation for a return trip

Room tip: Eat somewhere else in the evening.

The management team are wonderfully warm and welcoming, making both us and our pet cat feel at home. The rooms are large and well-appointed with the best ones overlooking the fabulous park.

Dinner in the restaurant is an occasion and is popular with locals and hotel guests so must be booked in advance to avoid disappointment. The chefs clearly have a passion for the ingredients, and these are fresh, reflecting availability on the day and local produce more generally.

Saintes is a short walk away and is a beautiful town with lots to do and see. The hotel assisted with booking restaurants in town and making sure we had the best table and superb service.

We were more than a little sad to have come to our last day, but will return because of the fabulous experience we had the pleasure to enjoy at St George's.

Room tip: Book early for the restaurant, its worth it!
