Poor host, not pet friendly.

This is the 3rd time we have driven to Spain and back with our dog, we have become quite proficient at arranging our holiday and always notify the hotel or B&B that we have a dog with us so that they can put us in a pet friendly room (obviously having booked pet friendly accommodation). On arrival at Manoir de la Blonnerie, it was mid evening and dark, the owner didn’t look particularly thrilled to see us, and told us she would show us to our room. My partner, out of courtesy, reminded her that we had a dog with us, only to be informed that she wasn’t aware of that, and that she had dogs of her own, that our dog had better get on with them, in a rude and abrupt manner. We were then told to bring our dog to make sure HE wouldn’t be a problem, which we did, we also provided evidence that we had informed them about him on booking. Fortunately Dexter our dog, is very laid back and placid and got along fine with Nookie the owners very large and young dog. As we were late, we had picked up a pizza and were told to eat it in the dining room which we did, we then went to our room on the 2nd floor. It was large clean and spacious, very comfortable however there are no locks on the door and someone tried to enter our room at 10pm, they were dissuaded by Dexter poking his nose out through the open door, obviously by another guest in error, but no apology was given.
The following morning, we had a bath/shower, with our own toiletries, as the refillable gel provided was empty, then went for breakfast, simple but pleasant continental breakfast. As we were leaving the owner collared us again, wanting to know how much we owed her, we informed her that we had paid on booking (as usual), she stated that she hadn’t received payment even after we showed her the online booking form proving it had been paid, we then had to wait another half an hour whilst this was sorted and her son (who wasn’t present), rang Expedia to confirm payment had been received months earlier. Overall, a poor experience, and despite the room being satisfactory, it was over priced in comparison to the other accommodations we have stayed at. Another point of note, the Manoir has a swimming pool (which we weren’t expecting to use) however it was not maintained, the water dirty, green and full of debris. Quite off putting.
Perfectly comfortable for an overnight stay

We stayed one night on our way down to Lot-et-Garonne with our 24 year old daughter in tow. Our bedroom was perfect with a separate bedroom for darling daughter. She was quite happy, especially as she had the view over the lake. The bathroom was nice, rooms basic and very clean. Beds very comfortable. We took advantage of an evening meal which was fabulous. Home cooked using ingredients from the farm, including the pork. The breakfast was simple, cheese, meats, bread croissants. Although the Manoir's photos don't quite match the reality, it is perfectly fine, a bit rustic with loads of character. Don't let that put you off, it just needs a lick of paint on the outside, but it adds to it's charm. There's a nice swimming pool and garden tables/chairs outside in a sheltered courtyard.

What a nice place to stay on our route to Holland from the north of Spain. Just minutes from the A10. A nice spacious room, a friendly owner and a great diner. Check-in after 17:00 hrs is good to know.
Not as dog friendly as they say... very unwelcoming!

Despite booking specifically as a dog friendly stop over, they clearly are not! They have 2 dogs themselves one of which is a nightmare with other dogs?!! Therefore after a 6 hour ferry crossing and another 4 hours in the car the dogs had to stay on the lead and be banished to our room. That in itself we could have handled but the sheer hostile welcome was just unnecessary! We did have dinner which was ok although they gave me lamb sausages despite my having specified no red meat?!!! Apparently we should have said we were coming with dogs but at no point during the booking process did it provide me with the option to say so... however i did have a booking confirmation which said ...Pets allowed ... so I have no idea what their problem was. The whole thing was stressful, embarrassing and expensive! Thankfully it was only one night as even taking the dogs out for a wee first thing was unbearable!!!
Quite a pretty property, a bit tired and not as nice as the photos.
I thought it was different.

The bucolic landscape let dream of an old house, genuine, with rural but elegant features. But not this one. And its hard to find one that really worth it. Poor decor, and a bad example of an old building.
Even so, nice and comfortable room but no amenities. Or tv.
