Well , on leaving my wife turned to me and said, we have never stayed in anywhere so magnificent, she was right!! Truly truly amazing, and we believe excellent value for money. Our room ( suite) was sublime, the food in the restaurant of the highest quality. Probably the jewel in the crown was the team of highly skilled staff , if I pick out Sylvan and Yohanna , it’s only because I didn’t get the names of other people, we will definitely return, and the next time for a longer period! Thanks to everyone for making our stay so memorable

We stayed here over the August bank holiday weekend and had a wonderful time. The chateau is stunning - the grounds are beautiful to walk around and the pool is peaceful and tranquil. With only 10 rooms, the atmosphere was very quiet during the day - mostly couples. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time and enjoyed lounging on the day beds. It would be great if they opened the pool bar - at the moment you need to call reception if you want anything to drink and the staff kindly deliver it. It makes you feel a little awkward though! During the evenings the restaurant gets quite busy. The food is excellent but it's very much fine dining so great for one evening but not every day. The setting at night is the most romantic with lovely lights and fountains dotted around. The room we stayed in was lovely with beautiful views over the gardens. There was no fridge which is unfortunate as we'd have liked to keep some water/cheese for snacks. It's a shame there is no other option for food other than the restaurant after breakfast - it would have been nice to be able to order something more simple for a casual lunch or dinner. On Mondays the restaurant is completely closed so there is no food at all after breakfast - you need to go out. Overall it was a wonderful trip, extremely relaxing. The staff are all extremely helpful. Highly recommend this place and hope we will get the chance to visit again. Thank you to all the staff who made our stay so pleasant.

Extremely friendly en professional staf: the service you except in a 5 star hotel but often don't become. Beautyfull surroundings en pool, good restaurant. The rooms are ok, but more like a 3 star hotel, with a little more effort of the interior design, the whole place good deserve 5 stars

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly, the property well kept and spacious. The only slight complaint we have is that the mattress was quite hard. But we slept well. Breakfast was excellent too.
