We felt at home from the moment we arrived. The hotel staff were welcoming and attentive and the setting outstanding. The old chateau has a wonderfully authentic eccentricity about it. The decor, the tiny elevator, the more recent breakfast room addition, the dungeon and the rooftop pool conversion make it a truly unique experience. It definitely has an old world... More

An excellent Relais et Chateaux hotel in the heart of the Pyrenees mountains in the village of Molitg-les-Bains. This was my second time in this hotel. Superb and friendly service and outstanding gastronomy. Pricey but worth every Euro. I shall return

Organising a wedding for 40 people on behalf of a couple living in the UK requires a certain professionalism, which the staff at the Chateau de Riell certainly showed that they have in plenty. Most of the organisation was done by email, with one short visit a few weeks before the event, and all went exactly according to plan. The... More

One can imagine riding a horse up the steep valley 100 years ago and turning a corner to see this beautiful Chateau overlooking the cascading river below. The same experience awaits you as you drive your car up the twisting roadway to Chateau De Riell. On arrival a very gracious team attended to our every need. Indeed it was impressive,... More

This 3-day stay was the highlight of our 10 days trip, passing from the coast to mountains in the Pyrenees Orientales. The small nearby village is perfect, the chateau's location is perfect, the roof-top pool was perfect for our 1.5 year off to cool off in (it was 30-38 degrees in August), in addition to the "normal" pool at ground...

We booked this hotel for 3 days to celebrate a special occasion. The location of this property is magnificent, however, we were placed in a room (in the castle as requested) facing the entrance driveway and could not enjoy the view anywhere else because of bad weather. The room was cavernous, relatively small and over-furnished. On arrival, we booked our... More

Once again, found this thanks to Travelzoo. Never been on our mind to visit this area of France. Sadly, we were only here for three nights. We stayed in one of the adjoining cottages(Cedre), which was lovely and cosy, and bizarrely Gaudi-inspired. We ate in the restaurant for the first night, and yes, at 60 Euros a head, a tad... More

We spent two Nights at Château Riell at the end of August and would have loved to stay for longer, go for hikes in this wonderful area. Our room was lovely, spacious and obviously just redone, great bathroom, Georgeous views. Very friendly and warm welcome. The restaurant in the Château was very good, the Service professional and very nice. I... More

Rather bizarre and very pretentious. The rooms are odd and the experience does not reflect the price. The pool is nice, breakfast at €25 was hugely over priced an the staff were not greatly welcoming. The grand hotel is a better bet.

This chateau is located in a small hot springs area in the Pyrenees and certainly off the beaten tourist track. We were there for two nights in a large room that was comfortable. The chateau is historic so the windows are such that not a lot of light comes in but we liked the room and slept well. The bathroom... More
