How to Get There
This lovely chateau has been made into a luxury hotel with everything we could have hoped for as a weekend escape. The tower room was spacious and romantic, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The hotel staff made us feel welcome and at home, and they did everything they could to take care of us and ensure that we had everything we needed. We are definitely looking forward to coming back here again for another weekend.
For wheelchair travelers: Room #6 in the tower was perfect for us. The bathroom was a bit narrow but the door was wide enough to get in with a wheelchair so we managed. The hotel staff will be more than happy to provide you with measurements or other details you need to know before you reserve, to ensure that you get a room that will work for you. They also have a wheelchair-accessible room in the "dependency" rooms (separate buildings from the chateau), but we wanted to be IN the chateau and we found that Room 6 was perfect for us.
This was our last night of our European driving tour before driving home, the hotel is stunning from the outside and set well out into the countryside.
Arriving at the entrance there was no concierge / doorman to greet or help us with luggage, strange as this hotel claims to be 5 star. I made my way into reception to find some help and was given a poor half heartened welcome by a young lady, who in fact in the end came out to help with luggage. She was a young small lady and I felt awkward allowing her to life our large set of luggage so myself and my wife had to assist carry everything to our room. Whilst the receptionist was a pleasant enough young lady it was clear early there was a lack of proper training to reflect a 5 star hotel.
Our room was lovely and had a view to the back of the hotel onto the ground's and golf course. The room was well decorated with modern clean furnishings along with traditional fittings to compliment the hotel's Chateau period feel.
We then spent the rest of the afternoon in the hotel's bar sitting outside looking across the grounds, staff were attentive, apart from one of the guests flying their drone in front and above us it was a pleasant afternoon. Later that evening we prepared to dine in the main restaurant, i had noticed early that there was no complimentary water in the room and bringing this to the attention of the night reception before bed they made it clear there was no complimentary water and that I needed to pay for it from the mini bar and showed no genuine concern as I officially asked to make it a complaint. If you stay in a 5 star hotel you pay 5 star prices and I have never found proper 5 start hotels let alone 4 star and B&B's to charge, its frankly an insult and an obvious way of making a quick buck while upsetting paying customers.
While getting ready the shower in our room did not work safely/properly, I explained to reception that it kept bursting scalding hot water intermittently and they said they were aware ! why put us in that room and expect us to simply accept they knew about it.
I would point out that the dinner in the main restaurant was excellent, staff attentive and food well presented and very enjoyable in what is a lovely period room.
Breakfast in the morning was very poor, terrible people skills by the elderly woman serving and a poor breakfast selection. Again a 5 star hotel would at least offer an option of cooked egg varieties.
A few things have let this hotel down, shame because it could be excellent but because the points made above reflect to me that this is not a 5 star hotel with no complimentary room water, a doorman/concierge, poor breakfast service and lack of proper training, these things have let this beautiful hotel down. If it was not for the great bar and dinner service i would have rated this hotel poor, instead its average.
We spent a long weekend at the Chateau for a relaxed gastronomic getaway. We booked the Junior suite, our friends were in a deluxe room. We expected a castle like decoration and atmosphere in our room but we basically felt like staying in a Mercure hotel! Our meal in the castle main restaurant was fantastic (both food and service), however the second evening, the restaurant was full and they recommended their adjacent brasserie...I don't recall having such a terrible meal. The amuse bouche was a large scoop of quark served without bread or trimming (felt like eating spoonfuls of sour cream). I ordered the steak tartare, One word...disgusting! I love steak tartare and ususally will order it if o the menu, theirs in nothing but a large blob of hamburger with an egg yolk. I would strongly recommend Chateau de Courcelles (Reims region) if you are looking for a "castle" experience!
Unfortunately for us we were held up in a 4 hour delay at the channel tunnel in Folkestone which cut our already short overnight stay down to even an even shorter stay. However, after driving through temperatures in the high 30’s on arrival this Chateau just instantly relaxes you. The tree lined entrance, setting and the grounds of the Chateau are absolutely stunning and to top it all off they have a Michelin starred restaurant on site which delivers outstanding food and wine at a reasonable price. Whilst I am not a golfer, I must admit the course looked stunning and made me want to take the sport up! The rooms were beautifully decorated and fully air conditioned to deal with the high temperatures and were even dog friendly. Whilst we never had a chance to use the Spa area I am sure it matched the quality of every other facility at the Chateau. This place is special and we will be returning soon.
I’m honestly astonished by the blatant disregard for customer service here. How is it possible, firstly, that they do not have ROOM service in a FIVE STAR hotel. And the best they could do, on top of that, was a Caesar salad. Pathetic. Fast forward to morning time after an event at the hotel. To even find breakfast past 10:30 am has been an immense struggle of back and forths with unwilling people to serve me five minutes past the already stupid time limit. This is Western Europe is it not? France is next to Spain, a country with way more lax hours and customs, and yet they can not comprehend the possibility of others having different breakfast times. If that wasn’t enough, let me give you a clearer picture. Clothing irons? Nonexistent. Pressing service? Laughable. And the two services they work with are closed down. Food quality? Unamusing. We had to bring our own iron. At one point they found an iron and were able to lend it to us for our event. How low. Five star hotel? Really? Michelin? Are you sure?
