        The photo makes it look much better then it is. Meager staff, felt more like a morgue.The staff leave at 10:30pm. So you let yourself in, which would have been fine if our key had worked so we had to knock on the door of another guest to call the hotel. Got a cell phone and they sent someone there which took 25 minutes. When I complained to manager he said why didn't you take both key cards? and why didn't I use a cell phone to call them? We left after one night and did not get a refund, so blew over 1000.00 euros on a hotel we did not use because we would not stay there and ruin our vacation. The place is charmless. Also the price is too high for the service. Ice cold swimming pool with not heat. The grounds are extremely basic.

        Nice location just outside busy Bordeaux. Good and large beds! Friendly staff. The pool is clean now!

        During our visit very quiet, therefore no restaurant services so back to the village for dinner. Breakfast is very good but thats to be expected though a little expensive

      • Family with children

        Just on the wine road

        View around (corn fields,electric lines, factory). Lack of service.

      • Older travelers
        4.6

        The chateau has been renovated in a very tasteful manner to a high standard.

        This is not really a hotel but a business/ convention/ wedding centre.It has only 10 bedrooms,no restaurant therefore one had to travel by car for some distance to find a restaurant for dinner.The ambiance was that of a meeting or reception centre waiting to set up for the next big group and was not at all geared toward the comfort of an individual traveller

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        The Chateau was very exclusive, good as a romantic hideaway but not advisable if you want to have access to Bordeaux City Centre. It is a reasonable location if you have your own transport as it is halfway between the vineyards in Paulliac and St Emilion.

        I did not realise the chateau was so remote with nothing nearby at all. No restaurants close enough to go to, and no restaurant in the chateau. You have to rely on rooom service, or a 30 minute trip to Bordeaux City Centre for which you will sometimes be saddled with a 2-way taxi fare cost.

        This is a beautiful, small hotel. The rooms were very large, elegant, luxurious. Extremely quiet. Nice pool, and few rooms. Internet access was great.

        There were not enough employees the weekend we were there. The receptionist was also the breakfast chef, which made timely food prep and checkout challenging. The room service is okay, but again, the chef is usually at the reception desk. Location was okay, but traffic into Bordeaux was awful.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The loveliness of the castle, its locaton on the river, and the quietness. Also, the size of the rooms is a plus. Lisa was also a plus. She was so very helpful in information about the area and dining.

        The only thing I would say would be the fact of no dinner in the evening. A nice menue on the lovely veranda would really add to the comfort of the castle and the comfort of the customers who come in after being out all day, needing a simple but enjoyable meal by the river.

      • Older travelers
        4.2

        Nice location on the river, and half-way between Bordeaux and wine country north (E.G. Margaux, etc.)

        This hotel would be great for a relaxing retreat; however, since the hotel offers no dining facility, it is not a practical site for this purpose. Ideally, the hotel is situated on the river, but the hotel has not taken advantage of this asset. The terrace facing the river would be ideal for dining, and bar service. It would be great to settle into the hotel and have the proper facilities for dining. The hotel's sequestered location makes it a nuisance to have to leave the hotel and hunt for an acceptable restaurant for lunch and dinner. Without a dining room or bar, there is no area for social engagement, and quite frankly, other than the pool, there is absolutely nothing to do at the hotel other than sleep in the room. It is a beautiful location, and the hotel is obviously a work-in-progress, but we do not plan to return if there are no further enhancements.
