We were somewhat disappointed by our stay. Because we had opted for one of the cheapest rooms as we were only staying one night, and didn't want the rather rich menu on offer in the restaurant we didn't see any of the glamour of the chateau until the following morning when we asked if we could look at the public rooms. Our bedroom was basic and reached via a very shabby hallway which really needs a face-lift. Breakfast, which was disappointing for the level of accommodation, was served in the most unprepossessing space with plastic doilies and sugar packed in paper tubes. Not quite the attention to detail that you would expect for the price. However, the gardens are magnificent and well worth a visit in their own right. The chateau is also next door to the most wonderful Japanese garden, again well worth the visit. We did ask if we could view the dining rooms which were magnificent with some beautiful paintings. It seems that the chateau majors on its restaurant (which was virtually full on a Thursday evening despite the entrees costing about €20) but is unable to address the shabby nature of many areas of the hotel. All in all, rather disappointing.
