great location nice hotel but not a 5 star

3 out of 5
Posted Oct 20, 2016
positives: the hotel is it the great quiet location, good dog walks and great restaurant near by negatives: no bellboy on arrival or valet parking, when we ordered the room service the waiter delivered first meal then returned after the 5 minutes with the second meal and the drinks arrived 10 minutes after that which was very disappointing as by the time they arrived the food was cold and my partner send his steak back and they have send this same reheated meal after 20 minutes which was shocking. shower gel in the dispenser on the wall, very limited choice of the drinks in the mini bar. overall: nice hotel for a one night break however the standard of 4 stars not 5. Management it is to busy with the costumers attending the conferences to be paying the attention to holiday makers.

Excellent Short Stay visiting Friends

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Pros: Location. Welcome. Staff help. Comfortable.
Cons: Nothing really -
Location: Local Fontanel Pizza restaurant and Bistro opposite both good for evening meals all a short walk away. Lovely walk round lake to build appetite
My wife and I needed a hotel local to Genval while spending the weekend celebrating a friend's Birthday and this fitted the bill perfectly. Very comfortable hotel - not the cheapest but good value. We had a room on ground floor with a view of the lake. Room was spacious and comfortable. Hotel staff were very helpful including arranging free transport to venue for us saving taxi fares. Breakfast was all you need with good choice - didn't try hotel restaurant in evening. All good. Would recommend - try to get a room at front. Would look to stay again.

An unforgettable experience

Posted Aug 1, 2015
Pros: Staff constant availability, cleanliness, and overall beauty
Cons: Nothing
Location: Being a small town, like in the country for Canada, there is really not much to do or see except excellent restaurants.
This hotel is everything you want when looking for comfort, ease of access, staff availability and their will to ensure your enjoyment. Rooms are spacious and kept immaculately clean. The atmosphere in the Chateau is a happy one. Overall, not only would I recommend it to anyone visitingBelgium, but I would gladly return myself.

Lovely setting, expensive extras.

Pros: Position overlooking the lake. Spacious modern rooms. Delicious food, well presented.
Cons: Provide tap water in the restaurant. Provide real milk on the courtesy tea-tray. Remove the fee for use of the swimming pool
Location: Convenient for visiting the site of the battle of Waterloo.
Modern, comfortable and spacious rooms and dining room overlooking the lake. The breakfast buffet was excellent as was the dinner. However, there was a substantial, per person, charge to use the swimming pool ( and the rest of the spa facilities) so we didn't feel like paying this just for a swim before breakfast. Having specifically chosen the hotel as it had a pool, this was disappointing. The hotel makes a lot of its eco tourism but we were refused tap water in the restaurant and were told that only bottled water was provided. These were half-litre bottles for the price of half a starter.

Great location, nice rooms, poor service

3 out of 5
by from London, UK
Posted Jul 10, 2013
Pros: Location
Cons: Staff service
Location: Located near a beautiful lake in Genval. Very calm and picturesque location.
The location for this hotel is unbeatable. The lake is really beautiful. While the room itself was nice and clean. we've experienced some mishaps during our stay. At one point the key cards stopped working, and on two occasions the reservations we made with the staff (for dinner and massage) were later not found in the system forcing us to search alternatives. The elevator was really slow and outdated, I found taking stairs to the 3rd floor faster. Granted none of these are a big deal- it is really not the quality of service one would expect from a 5 star hotel. We've stayed in a few 3 and 2 star hotels during the length of the vacation, and found service provided by them to be easily on par with this and sometimes better. It is a real shame as like I mentioned- location is great and the rooms themselves are very nice.

Business Interests trump Guest experience

3 out of 5
Posted May 17, 2013
Cons: Unreliable and slow taxi service make this a difficult location is you do not have a vehicle.
Location: Wonderful views of the 'Lac' make this a great setting IF you do not need local facilities.
As a 5 star hotel and I had expected a 5 star 'guest experience'. Unfortunately the room I was allocated was directly beneath a health club and at around 8am I was disturbed by loud music from a spinning class. The hotel was unable to resolve this and I found myself having to leave my room to work. The hotel manager listened to my complaint with a demeanour that suggested he was familiar with this issue. He apologised but did nothing beyond that. I believe that the hotel KNOW this is a problem and hope that guests will have left the rooms before it becomes an issue. Siting a health club amongst guest rooms is wrong. Starting a class that will inevitably disturb guests before 10am is wrong. Displaying a 'sorry but...' attitude is unacceptable. If you find yourself in a wing distant from the club, this would be a reasonable place to stay.

Nice locale, so-so spa, very expensive

2 out of 5
by from London
Posted Sep 2, 2012
Pros: Food
Cons: Price
Location: Lakeside, very pretty, a few km from autoroute.
We just had a single night stop on our way back from Germany to England and wanted somewhere with pool/spa so we could relax. The pool is tiny - you can't swim in it. The other pool features are just so-so, not much better than a typical gym, and at 30€ pp it's quite expensive. We arrived around 1pm, but their checkin time is 4pm, but they did at least rush our room so didn't have to wait too long. Not ideal for just an single night stop though. Our room's bath/shower fittings were faulty and needed attention. We needed robes for the spa area, but we weren't provided with any until a we asked. Restaurant food was excellent, however, and staff were nice enough, but not especially welcoming or friendly. Word of warning if arriving by road: Our satnav chosen route took us along a road that been dug up and was rocky/muddy and full of pot holes. It also tried to send us down the wrong way down a one-way street. Not a complaint of the hotel, of course, but it's probably wise to ignore satnav directions within 1km of the hotel. Parking was ok and free. Overal, I'd say it was too expensive for what you get.
