The staff were very professional and personable. The accommodation and facities were excellent. The food was exceptional and the wines superb. We were disappointed to be staying there for only one night and look forward to a return visit.

We decided to have a night in St Emillion on our way to a wedding near Gensac. The Chateau Grand Barrel was fantastic. Staff were warm and helpful, we went for a walk through the vineyards into St Emillion town the day after we arrived and they kindly spent some time giving us directions for various routes. The chateaux and... More

We stayed for 3 nights, with grand plans to go wine and food tasting all over the local area. However, our plans were ruined by dining at the restaurant the first night. It was so nice, we ended up eating here for most of our meals for the rest of the stay! The degustation was superb, and a lot of... More

We spent two nights here and enjoyed the entire experience. Our room was a first floor corner room in the main building with a patio overlooking the vineyards. We were there for Labor Day weekend which is also an open door festival for most of the local vineyards. The hotel is not only lovely but well located for visits to... More

We just returned from 4 days at CGB. The exterior of the hotel is so grand. The interior is extremely dated and in need of refurbishment. The furniture and carpet in our Presidential Suite was old and of poor quality. We tried to relax on the beautiful outdoor balcony overlooking the vineyards and although there was a beautiful table/chairs to... More

This is a very nice hotel, well located in the vineyards. Our room was nicely decorated facing the back side of the Chateau. The property is very nice and has many bikes to go to St. Emillon. The only bad thing was the hair drier... very small and weak...didn't work more than 30 sec. They really must change it! The... More

Room overlooked vineyards to front of hotel with balcony - superb space. Food: exquisite. Service : best have experienced for some time. 20-30 min walk into the village or 7/8 min cycle - hotel hire bikes. Peaceful & quality experience courtesy of the staff who are capable of providing excellent service to guests. Thank you.
