How to Get There
• No one to help with bags
• No Lunch (‘we don’t do lunch as we don’t have the staff’) – event though it clearly states lunch on the website
• No room service which is meant to be offered all day… (‘Sorry we aren’t doing room service as we don’t have the staff’)
• We were then sent to an alternative (a two star hotel)which was perfectly nice but not exactly what 5* hotel customers are looking for. Also, we hadn’t exactly planned on having to drive 15km for a lunch in a wine region. No taxi was offered.
• The room itself was tired, dark, damp, no A/C and the phone didn’t work for calling reception/room service etc. (you had to call from your mobile which didnt matter anyway as they weren't doing room service (see above)) the bathroom had no shower apart from a shower-head in a plastic bath which reached chest high. I suspect the bathroom was last updated in the mid 80s (light mauve). The curtains also didn’t cover the windows fully which is unfortunate when the suite overlooked the main drinks terrace…No A/C is also an issue in this room as you have to open the windows which then is noisy over the terrace.
• Dinner – drinks took 45 minutes to arrive on the terrace (where they didn’t want to serve us) and where the furniture is not as advertised on the website (not a white cloth or cushion in sight). The sommelier’s response to ‘what would you recommend on your Bordeaux list?’ was ‘The Bordeaux wines are on pages 4 and 5’…which would have been helpful if I couldn’t read.
• This was followed by a meal that can only be described as school dinners/one or two star quality at best.
• They clearly have lost the chef they previously had. So they had a 3* Michelin quality (and price) wine list with 1* food (think cheap brasserie at best and nothing like the website). The steak for main course was inedible; tough and served with raw potatoes and frozen vegetables that had been boiled.
Beautiful setting with a staff trying hard to make you stay special. Views are stunning making up for some shortfalls in the facility. Grounds to walk are a welcome respite from the normal pressures of life.
WWI American Cemetery nearby and worth stopping.
Nice off the path location.
This was our third time at Chateau de Fere and we were not disappointed!! We had a very nice room in the newer part of the hotel which was accessible through the hotel itself and through the small exterior garden area. A fabulous meal in the restaurant topped off our most enjoyable 2 night stay. Only one mystery.....a strange gap at the front of the loo!!! (see photo attached!)
By far one of the most beautiful historical hotels I have seen. It is really far from the city so it's quite a drive, but so worth it. Employees are extremely nice and polite! Which in all honesty is not very easy to encounter in France. We got a nice breakfast (nothing spectacular but it was good) the rooms are clean and nice (I would go for less dark colors, but I guess it suits the theme). The ruines and castle however, absolutely amazing and would definitely reccomend this hotel. Unfortunately, we only got to stay a very short night, so definitely visiting again.
Recently celebrated our silver wedding anniversary whilst staying at the hotel . The staff were very helpful but it was a bit hit and miss getting a drink in the bar as you had to find a waiter from the adjacent restaurant as the actual bar area is not manned. The restaurant is very nice but our first meal ( cote de beouf ) was rendered inedible as it was over cooked . Christian ( head waiter) tried to rescue the meal by offering extra jus, but it was beyond saving really. However, the meal the next evening was excellent and Christian kindly made our anniversary special with a decorated plate with chocolates.
Our suite ( room 20) was absolutely fantastic
Although staff are very friendly and helpful , they seemed a little short staffed as the receptionist /concierge also acted as a room porter. Would recommend though, as the setting adjacent to medieval ruins is fabulous.
