Very Nice

4.6 on February 11, 2016

We enjoyed our stay and the inn was beautiful. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The only problem we had was that the DirectTV was not working. One of the staff tried to fix the problem but could not. Very nice to have the bar and restaurant in the inn.


Distracted

3.6 on January 25, 2016

My fiancé and I loved the coziness of the room, Jacuzzi tub, and breakfast that was served but the staff seemed somewhat distracted due to all the construction and renovation going on around the property. When I checked in they asked what day I would like the cookies and hot cider brought to the room - I asked for Saturday (they forgot), they didn't have the champagne with flutes waiting in the room on the Friday (day of check in) like I had asked, and last I had asked for breakfast to be packaged up to go for us the Monday morning and they told us that 645 am would not be a problem and we didn't get our breakfast as we left approximately 7am. I felt that we paid good money for Suite 11 and for us to be forgotten about was a bit disheartening. Plus I understand with the renovations that breakfast was brought to the room but 930 is sometimes a little late - I would have preferred it closer to 9 or to at least have known that it was going to be delivered at that time. I loved all the added on amenities and the wine tour was perfect but felt it was a bit overpriced. With all that said I would still come back - as it was we had just an amazing visit and felt very relaxed after we left.


Great Atmosphere and Food

4.6 on January 07, 2016

An outstanding stay. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. The room was as advertised: roomy, warm, fireplace, a view of fields and cattle - great french country ambience. The walls and ceiling were not quite as thick as I would like and there was some noise but I was able to sleep well on the comfy bed. The included breakfast was delicious with plenty of options. The dinner was very expensive but delicious - 5 stars. This was a great anniversary trip!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for celebrating your anniversary with us at L'Auberge Provencale!


Great place to stay

4.0 on January 04, 2016

Enjoyed the bed and breakfast thoroughly, delicious food, friendly service, very comfortable room. For the price in this area and all of the fantastic reviews, I was a bit surprised that some details went overlooked--the "music" in the dining room at night was a radio station with many commercials! And we had to go outside to the office to ask for soap for our room. Obviously nothing major, not a deal breaker, just slight room for improvement.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your feedback! I have addressed the commercial interruptions issue since the time of your stay and thank you for making us aware of this.


Very nice stay

4.4 on December 24, 2015

Beautiful property and very nice room. All of the staff were excellent. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were super soft. The steam shower was a nice touch. Dinner at the restaurant was excellent (both the food and the service). The one negative was our breakfast. When we arrived it was if they were not expecting us. They reset a table for us (dirty tablecloth) and then prepared the food. The small touches were not there (no butter served at our table, no sugar in container at table, fruit salad empty at "buffet"). Felt like we were an afterthought.

Innkeeper Response
Firstly, we would like to thank you for feedback and let you know that we are sincerely sorry that your expectations were not met during your stay. At L'Auberge we believe breakfast is just as important as any other part of your experience with us and we are sorry that you were not sent off with the upmost hospitality. While our hot course menu is always available for breakfast, whether your breakfast was later during our service times or the staff had not replenished or perpared enough offerings, we do apologize and hope you will stay again so that we can make your experience right.


What a surprise !

We stayed L' Auberge recently. What a wonderful Stay. the rooms are all very nice, but it was the Food and staff that made the difference. Rutledge, Hunter, Ashley were ALL fantastic.The were informative and friendly. We always walked away with a smile. The food was amazing. One night the Chef made a special lite meal for us upon our last minute request. Just showing that the entire staff will go above and beyond your expectations. Thank you L' Auberge Provencale !!!

About the innkeepers

Having lived in Key West for about 10 years, Alain and Celeste decided to leave the tropical paradise and open a country inn. They sold both restaurants, and in their Cessna 172 (Alain is a pilot), found the location in Virginia to open their inn. They landed in White Post, in the rolling hills of Virginia Hunt Country. Far enough from the city, but not too far, the property known as Mount Airy.
