Enjoying a peaceful countryside setting, just outside the fascinating medieval town of Cherveaux in the Duchy of Luxembourg, Chateau d’Urspelt makes an impressively grand statement. Painstakingly restored to its former 18th-century glory over three years by hundreds of skilled craftsmen, it’s a true labour of love. Once almost lost after the Second World War, when it was occupied by American servicemen, today it’s classed as a national monument. Its present splendour is all due the efforts of genial owner and visionary Freddy Lodomez, who offers a warm personal welcome along with his family.
Drive up its elm-lined drive to be greeted by fairytale turrets and an immaculate cream exterior. Enter through its impressive arched portico via a graceful inner courtyard to an elegant lobby, setting the scene for a truly special stay. Cosy up by a roaring open fire in one of its welcoming lounges or take advantage of 21st-century additions, such as two private spas. Rooms are equally appealing, individually decorated with creamy hues and designer fabrics. Add to this a sleek vaulted restaurant serving sumptuous dinners and you have all you need for a memorable stay. For all this and more Chateau d’Urspelt has been awarded a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award 2016.
How to Get There
Beautiful place with well appointed rooms: comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom (although only a curtain can be drawn around for privacy if desired; there is however a separate toilet with door). Super breakfast - even though described as 'Continental' it offered hot options such as eggs, bacon, sausages and waffles. The fresh fruit was actually fresh (as opposed to old and wrinkled as is often the case at hotel buffets) and contained exotic items such as passion fruit.
The brasserie-restaurant had only a limited choice between 4 starters and 3 mains and two desserts (when we were there). The ingredients were of good quality and nicely presented. Initially, the service seemed somewhat confused but the staff did their best to deliver promptly.
A nice touch was the open fire in the inner courtyard where guests could sit around; we were lucky with the weather to be able to sit under the stars in mid-February!
We very much enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome. Would highly recommend this lovely hotel.
Our room was very cold and freezing, did not have good night sleep due to poor heating in room. Sound proofing was an issue, we could hear people and water running in opposing bathroom and people walking in the room above us.
We went for a wedding. We booked a family room which looked like one of the suites. The room was beautiful with roll top bath. The hotel staff already prepared our room for a toddler and baby. It was very romantic!
I have also been before for a work seminar and the service was just as good. The room was older and darker but still clean and comfortable. The food was great!
The expectations were much bigger for what it was offered. Not a good relation between price and offer. Without the additional services, it's just a basic hotel for sleeping, and not even that was good due to the noisy rooms and the lack of bed comfort. Very expensive for the additional services as well...
My husband and I stayed at the Chateau d’Urspelt in August of 2018 and were thrilled with our entire experience. We found the castle in our search for a NICE, CLEAN hotel to stay in while we went to the F1 race in Spa, Belgium and explored Bastogne, Belgium on our World War II tour. Despite the hourish distance from both locations, we were impressed by what we saw online, and it did not disappoint! The castle sits on quiet grounds and is simply beautiful, both inside and out. The staff is incredibly kind and accommodating. Our room and bathroom were immaculate and extremely spacious, and we had a lovely view of the courtyard out our window. The place was so quiet, which added to our restful stay. We both enjoyed the breakfast each morning. There was an impressive variety of baked goods, fruits, yogurt, eggs, sausage, cereal and more. The dining room is beautiful, with comfortable seating and natural light, and once again it is QUIET, so my husband and I had a wonderful, relaxing breakfast. We enjoyed the restaurant on one of our evenings there, which was truly incredible. I had the vegetarian lasagna and was impressed! The best part of this incredible hotel is definitely the bar. Hidden downstairs just below reception is a labyrinth of cold fashion video games, darts, fuse ball, and a full bar. The seating down there is so cool, it sort of has an American speak easy feel to it. We had a blast drinking and playing games in the evening! I would love to come back here and spend time in the spa. I would highly recommend this lovely hotel.
