MANY CHANGES BUT NOT GOOD ONESPosted Nov 28, 2013
Pros: The grounds.
Cons: Needs updating badly. Better staff and not young kids running the place.
I stayed here several times like 7-12 years ago and everything was phenomenal but now this wonderful place has changed and not for the good. Dining was incredible but not the case any more. All young kids are there now as employees. Peeling wallpaper, hallway and elevator is filthy. Its not even close to what it used to be, very disappointing. There were no other guests staying when we were there and they refused to offer an upgraded room and gave us a room right next to the elevator.

Nice Hotel in a stunning environmentPosted Jun 22, 2013
Pros: Staff, location, breakfast
Cons: more modern and up to date amenities.
Location: remote location in a beautiful countryside between Rambouillet and Chartres
The hotel is set in a stunning Chateau between Rambouillet and Chartres. The property is beautiful, the staff extremely helpful and professional. Unfortunately the rooms are starting to date. There is no Wi Fi, TV Screen is minuscule. The Mini Bar dates from another era. Beds are nice and firm, but the Bathroom is very 1970s. Ammenities in the rooms are passable, but not what you expect in this kind of property. The morning breakfast was the best we have seen in a while, fresh, plentiful and very varied. The private park is perfect for a leasurely walk, even if some of the outter alleys could be cleared in a better way. It would not take much to make this property the stunning hotel it used to be. A little attention to modern needs and amenities, a little less routine approach would propel this property in one of my preferred destination near Paris.

A Hotel with CharacterPosted May 31, 2011
Hotel presents very well upon arrival. The grounds are impressive. The staff were professional, courteous and clearly customer oriented (perhaps to a fault in allowing a full sized pet dog into the formal dining room). The overall ambience (and pricing) was of quality but a signifcant detraction was the general condition of the common areas, eg: the carpeting was worn and faded as was some of the upholstery . One expects that a older building will have issues due to vintage and this typically adds to the character - as it does at this hotel. However, given that the hotel aspires to be a quality and classy "get away", it is in sore need of redecorating. The location was convenient for a one night stay as part of a round trip from Paris through Normandy and the Loire Valley.

Would definitely returnPosted Jul 29, 2010
Very nice, beautiful surroundings, expensive in terms of extras like water, etc. Complained about not having any plastic water bottles to take out walking. There in July and it was hot, had a fan, could have used another though as we were on the top floor, but one was the limit. Restaurant was excellent, one of the best we'd experienced in France.

Beautiful romantic settingPosted Sep 25, 2009
Absolutely beautiful castle/hotel and grounds. Dinner was expensive but lovely. Would still recommend, as food was excellent. I was disappointed facilities weren't open to tour/view.
