This hotel restaurant changed hands in 2007 with the long-serving Blériots retiring. The simple rooms are reasonably priced and the cooking has always been good (Michelin star) but Madame Blériot’s habitual glacial welcome had deterred me from going back. Now, under the new owners, Hélène and Fabrice Tavernier, smiles are back and the service is much more efficient.
