Whole Abbaye complex really neat--ticket for free tour included in hotel rate--nice room, but a little small--very nice restaurant with great service--they even stayed open late one night for us to have dinner!!--helpful desk staff--very reasonable room rate--could have used better signage to help you locate the place.

Ours was a two night stop in Fotevraud on the way south. We booked one of the more comfortable rooms and ate breakfast and the evening meal there. The hotel has been modernised in a very sensitive and smart way around an old 17th century building and is right in the centre of Fontevraud, just opposite the abbey complex, which is the main tourist attraction and very worthwhile to visit.
Our room was very comfortable, without being oversized, and the staff were most efficient and polite.
The hotel is a 'three cooking-pot' Logis, and, as such one would expect the food to be high standard. We were not disappointed!
The breakfast was substantial and varied - all of a 'continental type', ie. a combination of the French style (croissants/baguettes/fruit) and German/Swiss coldmeat/cheese/smoked fish dishes. They do cereals, but not the full English breakfast (that is not a criticism however, just a fact).
The restaurant meals in the evening featured a good value (about 22 Euro if I remember rightly) menu with good choices. The food was well cooked and presented in a modern style - the restaurant seems well patronised by people not staying at the hotel, so best let them know if you want to eat there (though they seemed to be coping during our stay).
All in all, we would thoroghly recommend this hotel to anyone.
