A wonderful stay with 5 star service in the middle of the vineyards. A beautiful chateau a few minutes away from the picturesque town of St Emilion, a must-see if you are in that area of France. The staff arranged for private visits to several vineyards and were very helpful from check in to check out. The rooms are large... More

My wife and I just spent a couple days here on our 10th anniversary. The Manor is simply gorgeous, located in a beautiful area. The restaurant is incredible, the views, the service, the food everything. My only criticism is that the wifi in the rooms was very slow. We are already planning our trip back!

We arrived at the Chateau Grand Barrail after a long drive from the Loire Valley. We drove past at first thinking it was one of the Grande Chateaux of the wine area! When we double backed, we were warmly greeted, and escorted to our beautiful room with a patio just ten feet from growing vines. We ate in the restaurant... More

Our room was at the front of the hotel in what looks like a modern addition. It had a pleasant view over the vineyards. The room was large, had a walk in closet and a large bathroom. Decor was modern and comfortable. Both chairs in the room were well worn and rickety although the armchairs were fine. The bathroom was... More

We have just returned from an incredible trip to Saint Emilion. We had the pleasure of staying at the Chateau Grand Barrail for six nights. We arrived on Monday afternoon totally exhausted.

Beautiful property, beautiful rooms well situated for exploring the Bordeaux region. The glass atrium connector from reception to the main chateau was pretty but odd as it captured all the heat of the day, releasing it into the upstairs hallway. We left our room and were hit with a wall of heat. It just seemed like a design flaw. Some... More

The Chateau Grand Barrail was such a spectacular place, located on a vineyard, the grounds were gorgeous, and the Chateau itself was beautiful. Our room was perfect, although we weren't in the Chateau itself, but the smaller villa. We found the service at the front desk so helpful to advise for dining out, calling us a cab, (even when we...

Location is good, room size, towels and facilities were great, service varied from non- existent to slightly better than average. The restaurant was overpriced, the service was extremely slow, the food was average, the staff were poorly trained, poorly groomed and out of their depth.
