We loved L'estampilles! Our room was beautiful and extremely comfortable. The common spaces were elegant, but understated. Natalie and Martin were the perfect hosts! We would go back there in a minute.
It seems that some people have a problem with the location as it is not in the heart of town. We actually found that to be an advantage, as, firstly it was only 5 minutes out of town, and secondly it was quiet. No crowds!
As for the food, to say the breakfast was a gourmet meal, does not give it justice. It was just delicious! Dinner was a gastronomical experience, and quite the memorable dining event.
Lastly, my wife and I were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary there. It was romantic, relaxing, cozy and warm. We felt so comfortable there. It was a perfect getaway!
The auberge is a little way out of town but well worth the drive. Nice and quiet once you arrive. Beautiful common room and deck. Grounds are inviting and well kept. They even offer a little kitchen which guests can use to make tea, etc. Very good value for your travel dollar.
We stayed for one night and had a wonderful time. It was very hot outside but our room was comfy, cozy and the AC was whisper quiet. The biggest surprise was the spa. It was beautiful and very relaxing. The included breakfast was made-to-order and delicious! We highly recommend this place.
On the positive side, staff was great and very friendly. The room was clean and big, lots of space. The beds were very comfy. We liked the motel setting with the ease of parking the car right in front of the door.
But this hotel/motel definitely needs some work, it is very dated and not so pleasing to the eye. The AC/Fan was working but very noisy. The TV remote didn't work. The blinds were missing 3 slats and couldn't open/close. The shower leaked and no matter how careful we were,we would end up flooding the tiny bathroom.
They do have Wifi, but we did not try to connect on it and forget about the "breakfast area", they only have coffee and pre-packaged mini-muffins.
So, the place is ok if you are looking for a place to crash at night, spending most of the day out like we did, but nothing fancy here.
