10/10 Exceptional

Sneaky weekend in the mountains
We had a lovely time. The hotel rooms were typical French shabby chic, it was perfectly located for us - out of the town, quiet with plenty of space to walk our dogs. The landscape around was breathtaking with plenty of activities available. The little holiday town was perfect - had everything you needed I Mc using a choice of restaurants to suit all budgets and was quaintly attractive. The hotel restaurant was very good and not expensive, breakfast average. The Indoor pool was lovely, new, clean and warm. The outdoor pool wasn’t open as it was not warm enough at the time we went and it was being renovated. The only real negative was despite advertising free wifi throughout the hotel reality was it rally was only accessible in the public rooms. The staff were very accommodating so that we could watch the Grand Prix on the tv in one of the public rooms.

Beautiful Chateau with excellent restaurant
Loved the quaint converted monastery that was Chateau d'Ayres. After a stressful drive (not realising how scary the drive to the Chateau would be for someone who is scared of heights) we relaxed in the lovely pool during the July heat wave. The rooms were quaint (the bed head upholstery matched the wallpaper!!) with a big king size bed, but no fan or air conditioning. This was no particularly a problem, even in the middle of the heat wave, as the Chateau kept itself cool. The bathroom was large. The restaurant was AMAZING and I definitely recommend it.

Worth finding
The hotel is off the beaten track but is definitely worth finding. The staff are delightful, the restaurant is lovely and the grounds are very peaceful with the only noise we could hear being cow bells or birds.

Expected more
Charming old building, quaintly appointed. Recently-built indoor pool a sound investment but is a consistent 5 feet deep and has no gulley around the edge to hang on to, off-putting for nervous bathers or short people. Staff helpful, when they can be found.

4/10 Fair

We spent four days in the Gorge du Tarn and spent two nights in the Chateau D'Ayres. We were very disappointing in the accommodations. The rooms were clean, but very shabby. There were threadbare carpets and chairs throughout the hotel. In general, the place had the aura of an inn that was once great, but now had fallen on harder times and was in a state of disrepair. Also I would not recommend eating in the restaurant. Breakfast was massively overpriced for the quality. At least, the staff were generally courteous. Overall, this hotel does not deserve 4 stars. We were much happier in a smaller hotel in Peyreleau that was superior on basically all dimensions while also being cheaper. It was also in an old historic building, but every aspect of it was nicer and it included an excellent breakfast. If you come to the Gorge to climb, hike, or canoe, I would recommend staying closer as well.

Really interesting place, pity about the WiFi
Hi - we wanted to stay 2 nights, but had to leave because we couldn't get Internet access. Disappointed! It looked really interesting, and dinner was excellent - but the lazy holiday was cut short because the internet access in hotels in that area was down. A shame - we wanted to stay!
