Stayed for one night in a Lux room which was an upgrade from the classic room we initially booked. The grounds are impressive and the Chateau itself is beautiful, one of the prettiest we've seen. The room had a lovely view of the front garden and felt clean, it did however feel tired with an old carpet, an unidentified stain... More

We arrived late due to underestimating the drive from Switzerland en route to Calais so we missed the evening meal. Bathroom in our superior loft room very poor - hand held shower in the bath, lukewarm water, peeling paint etc. Staff generally friendly. Breakfast poor - packets of cereal along with bit of ham and cheese. Grounds not that impressive... More

How can we judge viciously The Domain ? You don't have dinner. You don't go to the Spa. You have booked a standard room with bath , so no shower! We have prepared a snack while you arrived late ; It's rare in a small hotel Amazed by your reaction , I let the readers make their own judgments but... More

My boyfriend and I stayed one night here and had a fantastic time. A gorgeous chateau set in the beautiful French countryside. Superb room, very friendly and attentive staff, delicious food and outstanding spa facilities to just relax and enjoy. We were upgraded to a beautiful room and ate at their fabulous restaurant for dinner. I was sad to leave... More

Set out in the country this chateau/farm house has a beautiful setting. Rooms are large enough, well decorated and somewhat quirky. The food is excellent but ludicrously expensive. Staff were very professional but friendly. Had a wonderful 2 days but now need to take out a second mortgage to pay for it.

Situated in a Superb location, with very friendly & helpful staff, plenty to see in the area, a visit to Leon is a must, and great facilities plus excellent food in the restaurant. Other places to visit are WW1 & 2 war graves, glass factory and wet lands for fishing and bird watching to say nothing of the quaint villages

This was a second visit for us - always slightly difficult wondering if it would be as good as the last visit. We need not have worried. From the friendly professional welcome, room upgrade and the excellent restaurant we again had a most enjoyable stay. T If you are in this part of France make the detour from the busy... More

We stayed for a night at the beginning of October en route from Calais to Provence. Our room was in what i would assume to be the old stables of the manor house. We'd been 'upgraded' to a suite, which meant we had a lounge downstairs and the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Although the room was ready for upgrade and... More

Thank you for your opinion. The next time, ask advice for the visits: the cathedral of Laon, the Chemin des Dames (First World War), the road with strengthened churches, the Guise "Familistère", the cellars of champagne, etc.... I hope to see you again. More

At the end of September my wife and I stayed twice. On the second time, we had a room which was good apart from in the walk-in shower with its head and hose that were coming apart and was in obvious disrepair. Water splayed everywhere making the floor very slippery. Service was good in the bar but at the restaurant... More

Although at first the approach to this hotel is a bit deceiving, and the car park a bit far from the front door, and outside the walls, don't be fooled. Once inside, you can appreciate the full lixury of the place. We were given a suite, huge bed, with French windows onpening on the field at the back, with a... More
