    We have stayed here many times on our way south. The hotel is very welcoming with a good restaurant. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. This could be viewed as an expensive stop over but nevertheless it is pleasant and well situated for a journey further south

    This was my second trip here and I was very excited to come back, as my previous visit was perfect. Not much has changed. The hotel is still one of my favourites. It is in the middle of nowhere, offering silence and tranquillity and is absolutely beautiful. The hotel's restaurant is still one of the best places I have ever... More

    The Cateau is set well away from any noise and nightlife in a rural location. Excellent standard of rooms and top class restaurant and service. We have visited several times and have always been impressed with the food, service and location.

    Loved this upgraded country manor farmhouse in truly rural location. Stephanie on reception was so helpful, preparing a snack in the late afternoon. Room was great with good ac, posh bathroom. Dinner was excellent, great wine flight, staff were friendly and helpfull. Only slight negative is I feel breakfast could have been better, bit boring, packet cereals, really??

    We stayed at the Domaine for the first time this week and found it to be a very restful and enjoyable experience. Happily, we were upgraded on arrival and after a couple of hours of leisure around the beautiful grounds we sat down for a magnificent dinner - great quality and presentation, supplemented by a range off amuse bouches which...

    This was a one night stopover in early June, a group of 5 couples on a road trip, and we all wished we could have extended our stay here. The hotel's setting is beautifully rural, in a tranquil wooded area within gently rolling, almost manicured farmland. Our rooms were spacious, very well decorated and equipped, with an equestrian theme. Food... More

    We enjoyed a fantastic night at Domaine de Barive last week with friends. The location is secluded and isolated away from everything. The food was amazing with the attention to detail second to none. The pool was warm and inviting and all in all we enjoyed out visit enormously.

    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

    Thank you for your comments. We renovate some rooms each year but we can't change the carpet after each guest. On individual request of our customers, we provide some bread with gluten, but it isn't systematic. I hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon! 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.

    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
