A magical visit to the mountains above ChamberyPosted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: Internet access!
Location: Set in Chambery Vieux above the town of Chambery, there are attractive walks. Dining limited to the hotel, but the town below offers many choices.
This well-maintained chateau above the town of Chambery is set in pretty grounds with a little winding road leading you up to the main building past an attractive outdoor swimming pool. Regrettably, the weather was against us with incessant rain and mist which limited the spectacular views across the valley. Our room was pleasantly furnished with ample room for your clothes. There is no A/C, but a fan was there in the bedroom for the (probable) warm evenings. Our best was quite comfortable, and the bathroom was adequately furnished with a bath and shower in the bath. Although wifi was included, there was no internet access available during our stay. We ate a delicious meal in the extremely attractive dining room. Service and presentation were faultless although somewhat pretentious. Breakfast was a buffet affair with all your desires catered for. Did I mention the flies? They are of a breed, that despite bringing our own can of "Raid" and an "Excecutioner" (tennis-racquet electric device), they resisted all our efforts of despatch! Irritating.

This is a beautiful hotel with real character.Posted Sep 13, 2013
Pros: The buildings, rooms, food.
Cons: Tea/coffee in the room would be great. More hooks in the bathroom for towels etc! I think some food service when the restaurant is closed.
Location: Chambery is nice
We arrived on a Monday and the restaurant was closed. The hotel had let us know this in advance so we ate out. Beware the taxis are very expensive. On arrival the receptionist was incredibly helpful and showed us round the hotel personally, the best welcome we have ever experienced. The food is superb. The pool area blissful and the gardens and grounds are great too. Our room was in the old part and very comfortable. It is nearly as quiet and peaceful as it looks but be aware there is a motorway that runs through these valleys and they create a constant thrum of traffic noise like background white noise and constant. Not a big problem though.

Lived up to the delightful sounding namePosted May 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Attentive service, a fine old building in a scenic location, acres of space in an upgraded bedroom, very comfortable bed and an excellent breakfast of fresh items - what more could you want? Not exactly inexpensive but definitely a case of you get what you pay for.

Wonderful hotel with stunning viewsPosted Jun 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
Our room on the 2nd floor was very spacious and comfortable. The views from the windows were stunning. We had some lovely walks in the surrounding countryside and found the number 6 bus stop around half a mile away, which did save the taxi fares. The pool was also very welcome on the hot days, but unfortunately was closed for cleaning the outside for the last 2 days which was disappointing. The restaurant looked good, but we didn't use it as we ate out in Chambery most evenings. It was expensive though, but probably right for the fine dining experience. I did think the breakfast was expensive for basically a continental buffet. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room was disappointing, but we would definitely look to return some time.

Enjoyable Chateau Hotel.Posted Aug 17, 2010
We stayed for 5 nights at this hotel in August. Our room was big and had plenty of character with a comfortable bed. We had a peaceful, relaxing stay apart from some noise from the restaurant. The hotel is quite a distance from Chambery town centre and too far to walk. There is a commercial centre down the hill, which is walkable. The breakfast was disappointing and far too expensive for what was on offer. We didn't eat at the expensive gourmet restaurant but the brasserie meal we had was very poor.

Chateau de Candie--luxury experience in ChamberyPosted Jun 23, 2010 on Hotels.com
This is a high-end, gorgeous hotel in a 14th Century chateau, but with all the modern amenities. The restaurant there is first-rate, and popular (we couldn't get in on our second night there). Many nice extras and very large, very comfortable rooms. A highlight for our trip.

Excellent restaurantPosted Jun 14, 2008
Pleasant stay,lovely pool area however the gardens required some "tender loving care"and better signature coming into Chambery. Sensational restaurant, very memorable especially the oysters with the goats cheese mousse and cucumber jelly, however the courses came too quickly, hardly a relaxed dinner.
