« Savour Loué free-range poultry in this chic, elegant country residence »

Description of the establishment

On the way to Brittany, close to Le Mans, this is the ideal stopover for lovers of gourmet delights and an elegant setting in a distinctive residence that upholds the art of receiving. Behind the Empire façade, the terrace overlooks a vast garden and the river, the ideal setting to take a stroll and unwind. Inside, the generous, light-filled areas are decked out in fine, authentic materials. The rooms, each one different, are spacious and tastefully decorated in a rustic-chic style. When it comes to the cuisine, the chef’s menu is inspired by his pursuit of the finest produce and exactly the right flavours in seasonal, gourmet and divine compositions. The famous free-range chicken does, of course, enjoy pride of place. A beautiful, charming hotel where it’s worth lingering a while...

Nice surprise

The hotel was charming, nicely decorated and the staff was very friendly. Dinner in the Bistro was excellent and the creme brûlée was one of the best we have had.

The amazing hotel Ricordeau
5
We stayed for one night en route home to the uk. We had the most amazing experience from our arrival to departure. We were very well looked after by the wonderful owner Monsieur deschamps. The food was exquisite, the ambience absolutely delightful. The hotel and staff are a credit to the owner. We will definitely return again.

Really family friendly

Extremely welcoming, this was our first stay in a hotel with our 2 year old and they couldn't have been more helpful, even warming her milk at bedtime. The food was exceptionally good including all the homemade jams at breakfast and the general ambience was really relaxing. I would love to return.

A small town hotel with a wonderful restaurant
4.6
A very comfortable friendly hotel in a good setting. We enjoyed our stay there. It was very convenient for a stop over between central France and the Channel ports. Very nice quiet room at rear of building overlooking the garden. Fabulous evening meal which was excellent value. The service was impeccable. Overall it was excellent but minor problems were fallen leaves in the swimming pool, the garden could have been better maintained ( considering there is a full time gardner there) but our main comment would be about a very grumpy unfriendly receptionist in the morning ( in contrast to the wonderful receptionist, head waiter and his student assistant waiter the previous evening on arrival)

Unfortunately the main Restaurant was shut that evening, so we ate in the Bistrot attached to the hotel. Our meal was tasty with very fine flavours, and the famous Loue chicken delicious..Our room was clean comfortable and quirky, with old fashioned french charm , and a lovely view of the garden. The Breakfast in the" Restaurant", the following morning with wonderful ambience ,was a delight. We look forward to a return visit to experience the Gastronomic Restaurant.

A lovely surprise! Friendly & efficient welcome made as feel like regular visitors even though this was our first experience! Parking right outside, which was great as it was pouring with rain when we arrived! Assisted with our luggage - of which we had a lot! Really appreciated that there was a lift even though it was noisy & bumpy - was safe! Many such Chateaux don't have lifts so this was a bonus for arrival & departure, even though we used the quaint winding stairs in between! Our room 21 was spacious, well decorated & had all the right ammenities including a comfy bed. Only comment would be that new carpet would make a huge difference. Free wifi but I found a bit frustrating as I could only log onto one device at a time so was constantly logging in & out whilst doing some work to back home. The Managers who spoke excellent English, were extremely friendly, interesting & helpful - as we're all the staff! We very much enjoyed chatting with them about the area, their plans & ours! We enjoyed tasty food in a friendly, bright fun atmosphere in the Bistro both nights. If you love Creme Brûlée, make sure you order early as theirs is wonderful & may sell out! The gardens which run down to the river are wonderful & the pool looked wonderful - bright, blue & welcoming - pity about the weather! Would definitely recommend & consider returning ourselves!
