Wonderful hotel! Very welcoming , hotel is recently new so everything is modernized and still smells new. Hold only 4 rooms, so it's nice and quiet. Food was great. The house is located right on the beach and about 1/2 a mile from the worlds famous beach. We had to get laundry done and they were very fast at getting it back to us. We were extremely happy to have chosen this place!! I would say the only downside is the hotel is across the street from a school which was sometimes loud with children, but if you don't stay at the hotel during the day you are fine.
wow, what a lovely place! the chalet, the grounds, the people and the food were all outstanding. i felt like i was staying with family. even better is that the hotel is owned by seychellois, which makes it a must visit.
Historic and majestic, the Château St Cloud is a Fantastic hotel with a very relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.
Couldn't fault the amenities, the location, the service or anything else. Certainly a great place to stay and relax with friendly staff to accommodate any of your needs.

"Attractive well designed hotel right on the beach."
First time in the Seychelles, this hotel lived well up to expectations. We had a lovely view from our room balcony over the Indian Ocean (well the foliage had grown up a bit too much for a perfect view actually, but it did not detract from the peace and quiet. The adjacent room's balcony also overlooked ours, but did not prove a problem). No pool, but the beach was literally on the doorstep.
The Cote d'Or village was also a delight, with plenty of facilities (Cash Plus exchange, ATM (only into rupees), mini markets in which the beer and water was much cheaper, and of course restaurants). On the final couple of days we hired a car (E50 per day) and explored the whole island, but concluded we had landed in the right place. Buses are very cheap but vary in reliability.
Trips across to La Curieuse island, where the giant tortoises are located and where an excellent barbecue is provided for lunch and with snorkeling in the afternoon, all for E65, is well worth doing, but beware the beach-boys' tricks. In addition you have to pay SCR 200 for the landing tax, and if there are two of you you are likely to hand over a SCR500 note. Instantly there is a change of subject in the conversation and the SCR100 change does not materialise. They will acknowledge the debt if challenged, but are adept at making up excuses for not having it on them. Get the boy's name early when relations are good, and then later take a photo of him and threaten to go to the police. It works wonders!
This is a well-run resort hotel with well-maintained facilities. Attention potential US clients: there are some amenities that would be standard in an American facility of this caliber that are not available here: no TV in the room, no WiFi in the room (lobbies only). However, the staff are courteous and eager to help. The rooms open to the outdoors: poolside or beachside. The deluxe rooms are large with good air conditioning, and a second (twin-size) bed is standard in these rooms. The king-size bed mattress was firm but comfortable. The baths are adequate and ventilate directly outdoors (no A/C). There are refrigerators and coffee/tea service in each deluxe room. Beach towel and hotel safe services are run through the reception. The resort partners with a few travel agencies, which maintain desks in the lobby so that one can book excursions directly from these services. There is no general concierge. Food in the resort's restaurants was good, not great (we booked bed & breakfast, not full-board). We saw many families with small children as well as many adult-only parties. The common areas (including the pool, bar, and game room) were well-serviced, and pleasant to use.
