This private dining room, off the court yard terrace, has many historic features such as a decorative fireplace, beamed ceiling, typical local floor tiles and two bay windows for great views of the flowered court yard.
Via the historic wooden stair case and the mezzanine you’ll reach this first floor function room with great views of the town square, the fountain and the abbey entrance. Many features in this dining room date back to 1696 when the coaching inn was first built. Bay windows allows for plenty of natural day light. The spiral staircases provide direct links with the other parts of the building such as the hotel, restaurant and bar-lounge area.
La Croix Blanche room
This spacious ground floor dining and meeting room caters for up to 85 guests. The grey and fuschia colour scheme adds a modern touch to this classic room. With direct access to our terrace, it is ideal for an aperitif before your meal.
Le Lounge, our new cosy bar-lounge area has comfortable club chairs and couches. In summer the direct access to the terrace is an added advantage; in winter you can enjoy a meal in front of the fireplace and soak up the atmosphere of yesteryears.
The bling-bling chandeliers, the solid wooden parquet flooring and a multitude of bright and subtle colours add to the experience.
Our lounge area can be used for cocktails, meetings, dinners and dances. We will adapt the atmosphere to your requirements!
Eleanor of Aquitaine room
For small groups of up to 12 guests we can arrange a private lunch or dinner in this romantic room. Located off the main restaurant but certainly not hidden away!
