We didn't know our room wouldn't actually be in the chateau. We were placed in a separate building, so it was a little disappointing. But ours was a/c and it was hot, so it turned out ok. 5 star restaurant, good staff. Some speak English well. It wouldn't be convenient if you didn't have a car. Room and chateau decorated beautifully. Gorgeous, manicured lawns.

Perfect for an overnight stopover en route to Brittany - right on the main route so no detour required. Secure parking and a large room made it ideal for us - plenty of room for a travel cot. Although it's on the main road and an in a commercial area of the city outskirts there were no issues with noise. Breakfast, payable locally, was perfectly adequate and puts some of the UK budget/value hotel chains to shame! Resturant right beside the hotel was very handy for an evening meal.
They should have taken another month or two to finish renovations. Smells like paint, no phone in the room, body wash taped to the wall the wrong way, very rude staff. Went to my room and toilet wasn't flushed (wondered if anyone washed it) and asked for another room. Asked if there was an elevator to take me up (with luggage) and was told I had to take stairs. Turns out they did have an elevator. Ugly, middle of nowhere.

This was actually like our motels, basic, but overall a comfortable place to be. The reception staff spoke good English, at least the one that was on the desk when I arrived and she even arranged the taxi before my arrival to collect me from the airport. I felt completely at ease even though I was a lone traveller and wouldn't hesitate to recommend in the future.
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was clean and decorated with vintage pictures and furniture that was neat. The staff was super friendly and helpful to us. The hotel has free wifi, free parking, and the breakfast is under 8 euro which is really reasonable for breakfast. It's about a 25-30 minute walk to the city center or there is a bus stop only a block away. We had rented a car so the free parking at the hotel was awesome and being out from the city worked well for us. We liked being in a more quiet neighborhood.
The downsides to this hotel were that the rooms were very small (but it is Europe, so that is to be somewhat expected) so we had pretty much enough room for the two of us and our bags. There seemed to be a miscommunication and the hotel only thought we had one person staying instead of two so other rooms are probably a bit more spacious for that. Another thing is the plumbing is really loud. We stayed on the top floor so it wasn't a problem, but I couldn't help thinking the lower floors might get the brunt of this noise. Even with these minor things, the hotel was great and I would definitely recommend it.
Fantastic room which was a short walk to the lift. A great advantage being able to park car in secure garage attached to hotel. The staff were most pleasant and helpful at all times and suggested a good eating place nearby as their restaurant closes at the weekend. The restaurant when open is well worth a visit with helpful staff and great food. Breakfast is the usual selection of cold meats, cheeses and cereal although there wasn't the usual large bowl of mixed fresh fruit but this is just a minor criticism. Hotel is very quiet being in an isolated area and would be too far from the city without the use of a car. Would definitely recommend this hotel as it was good value for the money and would certainly stay there again.
