Le Moulin du Bechet

Reviewed 20 June 2013

Beautiful grounds, lovely restaurant but the accommodation is awful. If you are unlucky enough to be in the rooms opposite the river you can hear all the adjacent rooms plumbing. My room had no door between the bathroom and the bedroom, which meant where it backed onto the neighbouring bathroom or situated below the upper room bathrooms; all you could hear all night was the continual running of water whenever anyone else ran a tap or flushed a toilet.
Rooms also lacked accessible plug sockets and ended up having to move the furniture around in order to be able to charge travel essentials. There were also insects in the bathroom and mould around the shower. Would not recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms in the block opposite the restaurant are particularly noisy.

The hotel is set in wonderful grounds but the accommodation was very shabby & is in need of a complete refurb including well worn towels. Restaurant quite good but lacked personality & breakfast poor. There was a general lack of passion about the place. It is a real shame as its potential is enormous

I booked three rooms for one night for my family and me. The reception staff were helpful but I needed my daughters help with the language as the receptionist did not speak any English. We had three double rooms my wife's and mine was on the first floor just above the restaurant and the other two in an adjacent annex. The grounds, river and lake are excellent place for an evening stroll. We saw coypus in the river, lake and on the banks. The room facilities were we OK, the rooms having tea/coffee making facilities. In the evening we ate at the hotel having three-courses from the set menu. The majority of us ordered; Scallops, Duck (cooked to perfection, just pink enough) and an chocolate assortment for the pudding. All dishes were well presented and cooked and all three courses were reasonably sized portions. The server spoke English which helped when we came to order. Highly recommended.

We arrived at the hotel after driving 3 miles down a narrow country road from the motorway and entered the property which is beautiful and can only be be described as a lovely park. The hotel also looks beautiful. However we soon realised we had judged this book by its cover. The receptionist was very pleasant and showed us to our "superior double room" this was up a narrow staircase. It was a tiny very unpleasant room which we refused to stay in and asked for an alternative. She said she would look to see if they had a alternative which surprised us as the place looked as though there were few residents. She then showed us to an alternative room in an outbuilding which was larger and had a small additional room with a desk and nice bathroom with separate toilet. The problem was as we found out later that there were no curtains or blinds and the only way to stop other resident looking in on us as we changed for dinned or got out of the bath was to close the shutters outside. Now we travel in France a lot and we are used to shutter but these did not have any way of keeping them closed as there were no clasps. It was very lucky that there was no wind that night or they would never have stayed shut. I actually shoved a wad of paper between the shutter and the wall to keep it closed. One the shutters were shut the room was very dark as the lighting was extremely poor. However the bed was very comfy and we slept very well having to use eye masks which fortunately we had with us. There was no wifi in our room which was supposed to be all over the property. The toilet made a loud water rushing noise every time someone used the toilet or ran a bath somewhere else near us. We ate in the restaurant which has a very limited menu and was very tasty although very nouveau cuisine with tiny portions. The waitress spoke no English at all and if one of us had not been able to understand a little French and got a gist of what the main ingredient was such as fish or meat we would have had absolutely no idea what was on the menu. It is a shame that the weather was so poor as we were unable to make the most of the lovely grounds. This hotel is ok for a one night stop on the way home from Normandy as very reasonable and also within easy reach of half an hour from Monet's garden at Giverny. An absolute must if you are staying in the area. Also make sure you go to a beautiful village rear by called Pacy and take a camera. Breakfast was excellent with super butter croissants, baguette, eggs, ham and a super home made prune jam. There was orange juice but unfortunately it was not freshly squeezed as we had in other hotels we had stayed in this trip. Even so if I could get a " super superior room" if they had one I would stay again.

Found this place for an overnight stop almost by accident. A bit off the beaten track (some 20 mins outside Rouen) so VERY quiet - apart from the mill stream and an owl two fields away. Had the dog with us (who was made most welcome) so were in one of the "garden rooms" - one of the converted outbuildings. Very comfortable, but quirky (no TV in our room, but given the quality of French television, that was no loss. ) Didn't see the rooms in the main bit of the house. Beautifully maintained and extensive grounds. The real surprise was the food. First class ingredients, with every component perfectly cooked and presented with care and evident pride. Three courses for 32 Euros made it a bit of a bargain, too - hope the Michelin inspectors don't find it or it'll get a star and the prices will double. Meanwhile, we wanted to kidnap the chef..... .
