The chateau is full of character. Our prestige room was large and had great views of the surrounding park. The decoration, furnishings etc throughout were high quality. The biggest disappointment was that the staff seemed unwilling to provide any sort of service one would expect of a hotel of this standard. It proved impossible to have a hot drink in... More

You expect a Chateau to be slightly grander inside than this. It could do with some refurbishment and a little upgrade, but it was perfectly comfortable and pre dinner drinks in the fabulous sitting room was a nice touch. I asked for house wine and was given 2 x 50 euro bottles. They may have been the house wine, but... More

Fantastic hotel in lovely setting,rooms clean comfortable and a touch of luxury. Only down side was the terrible service in the restaurant,the waiter lacked common courtesy skills and was brusque verging on downright rude. That aside would highly recommend.

Improve the rooms in the orangerie, improve the menu (the main course was good, but the apetizer and the dessert were not!). The room in the orangerie was really basic, small and with not very nice furniture. It did not have WIFI.

We found this fab hotel on our way back from Holland late in the day. We arrived after 8.30pm. Reception was friendly and quick. Room was great and the best was dinner. The restaurant was not busy, the service was great and food excellent. Best thing was we discovered "drink in tube" a new innovation which is happening in France.... More

The hotel is situated in the back streets of Cambrai. We chose this hotel because of the featured restaurant and secure parking. Neither was as advertised. We had a smile at reception. No offer to take our bag up two flights of stairs.The room was large, but we up had graded. The furniture did not represent the nature of the... More

This was our third visit to the Chateau and I'm not sure we'll be going back. We have stayed because it is conveniently en route for us through France on business. There are only 3 rooms worth staying in and they are on the first floor facing out the back, the best is Versailles, any other rooms are pokey and... More

We passed this hotel during a tour through France. The location was not that easy to find. First impression during entrance was wauw ... Reception was good. Our room (in orangerie) was disappointing (old, small, bit smell), the room of our tripmate (in the chateau) looked much better. We had not the opportunity to take profit from the park. Dinner...
