Gorgeous, unique, utterly charming, & a bit stinky

Posted Aug 16, 2014
This hotel is a unique experience. Rooms are in an old château built next to the crumbling remains of an even older château. We arrived at sunset while peach-colored rabbits nibbled on the lawn. A very charming gentleman who spoke perfect English showed us our room, a huge junior suite with a view of the ruins. We dined in the hotel restaurant, a lovely room with a view of the countryside. Sunset that night, at about 9:30, was a spectacular sight. Dinner was not so spectacular, though. The hotel permits children in the dining room, and unfortunately, one group included a screaming infant and two ambulatory children whose parents let them leave their seats and run between the tables. We were shocked not only by the rude parents, but that the hotel allowed this behavior, since the restaurant takes itself very seriously and is rather pricey. But, after dinner, we walked through the ruins by moonlight, and that made up for the obnoxious children. The hotel staff is lovely and accommodating. They met our every requirement cheerfully, exceeding our expectations. When we asked for help to rectify a problem with a Reims restaurant bill, the handsome young man at the front desk took over and took care of it. The stinky - there is a faint scent throughout the hotel of faulty plumbing. It is an ancient building and it doesn't have modern pipes. If plumbing is what you want, stay at a hotel in the airport. But if you're looking for a uniquely charming experience, come here!

A special treat

Posted Apr 27, 2014
Pros: Everything was so impressive, but the restaurant was stunning.
Cons: Nothing
Location: A bit isolated, but good transport links.
This was booked as a stopover on a long journey, and it was a real treat. The setting is stunning and the whole experience was so memorable from the adjacent ruins to the exceptional standard of food in the restaurant. We will certainly be back as this is a real find.

Romantic getaway

Posted May 29, 2013
Pros: Restaurant, view of ruins, junior suite very nice
Cons: Spa was not completed
Location: Quite far from other towns, Champagne attractions
Unfortunately the spa was not completed, despite being advertised on the website. We received a EUR 50 discount when we complained. The spa looked great though! Lucky guests who will enjoy it when it's finished. Beautiful gardens and view of the ruins. Lovely to sit outside and enjoy a drink in the sun on the couches. Great restaurant! Best food of our trip!

Wonderful chateau

Posted Apr 17, 2012
Pros: Room (upgraded to suite), grounds (especially the castle ruins),
Cons: Service was professional but a little slow,
Location: Need a car, lovely woodlands nearby, pretty remote
Wonderful building, upgraded to suite - fantastic. Castle ruins in the grounds are amazing. Pool was empty, but would be great to sit around in the summer. Bar is very small, but dining rooms are lovely. Waiting Staff were professional although a little slow. Food was good but expensive/limited menu to dine every night in the restaurant (and only alternative unless you leave hotel). A wonderful experience for a special occasion or a good deal.

fantastic luxury hotel

Posted Sep 1, 2011
Fantastic hotel in a stunning location by a ruined castle, perfect for touring the champagne region. Impeccable service from the hotel staff and the food from the restaurent was superb and very reasonable. Drinks were pricey, however. Ideal for getting away from it or a romantic break.

Chateau de Fere

Posted Jun 7, 2011 on Hotels.com
The chateau and grounds were beautiful with the ruins of the original chateau as a spectacular backdrop. The restaurant and staff were very formal, and the food and wine were expensive but good. Our bedroom was a bit disappointing compared to the quality of the hotel itself, particularly the bathroom that was very old fashioned and in need of updating.

Chateau de fere, fere de tardenois

Posted May 17, 2011 on Hotels.com
My wife & I stayed here 1 night in may. Let's be clear, this chateau offers a fabulous experience in both accomodation and cuisine. The rooms are furnished elegantly, the dining experience is a culinary delight.

Expensive but was it worth the money

Posted May 9, 2011 on Hotels.com
I fully expected this Hotel and my stay to cost a lot of money, and it is fair to say if you travel to this part of France you expect to pay a premium. Unfortunately i do not believe that the service lived upto the prices paid. We had a very good weekend but felt at the end of it that we had paid over the top.
