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
We got married and celebrated the dinner at the Chateau Urspelt. Loved it! We had the Grand ducal suite and our guests had deluxe rooms. Dinner was excellent. The hotel fulfilled our requests fast and to the point (flowers, cake etc). Breakfast was sufficient quality was quite good. My dream of a wedding party at a Chateau came true! Thank you!
I like to read the 1* reviews when I book a hotel and make my judgement on whether the 1* reviewers are serial complainers or not. In this case they all seem to be! This is an absolutely fantastic hotel with great staff and an outstanding restaurant.
Beautiful room which was immaculately clean and well appointed. (The 5€ for a bottle of still water from the mini bar needs addressing by the management. I run a bar and know the retail price of a 500ml bottle!)
The receptionists were excellent as were all the staff we met. The bar in the cellar is well worth a visit. The restaurant is beautiful with great food and service.
Breakfast was also a joy. We will definitely visit again should we be travelling that way.
We slept here for one night and were very impressed with the rooms, the location and the service. The lady at the reception showed us several options of rooms and arranged with the kitchen to get something to eat, despite the fact the restaurant was closed.
We would love to go back.
