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 stayed for one night driving to Belgium. Chateau was lovely and clean but no AC. The rooms did have a fan already in suite which was nice but you can't leave it running while you're out of the room (electricity operates with the room key). Absolutely gorgeous area - farm fields and sheep right outside the grounds. If you're driving a Tesla or similar they have you covered with plug-in stations. We had cocktails in the bar but found it very pricey and opted to go to Clervaux about 3 klicks away for dinner and found it extremely charming. The Clervaux Castle has a Sherman tank and other Battle of the Bulge information. Great Italian restaurant and patisserie (where we stopped on our way out of town). Overall loved the Chateau and the area and would stay there again (in cooler weather).
Very nice place to stay. Staff is very friendly and professional. There were a few service issues during our last stay in the restaurant, probably due to interns being part of the staff.
Definitely recommends this hotel to family and friends.
We stopped here for one night while travelling from Brugge to Germany.
This hotel is absolutely beautiful without a doubt.
Unfortunately there was a wedding taking place during our stay and therefore We were not allowed to use the pool area. The pool area is next to the area where the wedding ceremony takes place. Whilst I understand the wedding will take priority, as a fully paying guest I dont feel it is correct to limit where I can/can’t go during my stay.
Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Beautiful rooms and excellent Wellness Private rooms. Location away from big cities, sourpunded by forests and fields. Couldn't be better! Highly recommended for weekend away for 2!
Lovely staff even if the restaurant staff seemed a bit too busy when we stayed. Very good food though.
We stayed in the new rooms facing the courtyard. One morning we woke to a choir singing under our window! No one warned us and good job we were up early.
Good quality bathroom even if the shower is a little impractical. Plastic cups in the bathroom? Strange considering everything else is so nice. There is is no shower door so the floor can get very wet. Bedroom is very nice but lacking a bit of texture/warmth. Very quiet. Linen is OK.
The sign in the entrance “Have a nice day” looks very tacky. I’d remove it and the robot is just out of place near the reception. Don’t lose the chic feeling!
Reception staff were very welcoming. The “pool” area is a little underwhelming but OK. Garden is nicely maintained.
Overall we had a very nice stay and would recommend this hotel. Don’t let Martini take over the outdoor area!
We enjoyed ourselves so the above comments are just constructive feedback.
