Our first visit to this area and the hotel. Set in a very rural, peaceful area of Northern France. We were warmly welcomed by polite and helpful staff. All areas were clean and well presented. Lovely grounds and nice pool and Spa area. We had a comfortable junior suite that overlooked the courtyard and main drive. The food was excellent... More

We were told by friends that this hotel was exceptional as they stayed there before. The hotel itself is very special, it's really well designed and the grounds are kept well. There was no issue either with the room we had, as it was spacious and well appointed, the bathroom was clean and fresh. Staff were in abundance and were... More

Dear sir, you are a liar and you and you have no respect for the work of my staff. We have a place for a car for guest with a walking disability in front of the entry of the restaurant, at 3 meters !!!! I can send you a photo with a car parked. We have a complete list of... More

The hotel is so pretty and in the middle of nowhere, they have a welcome delicious cider, the rooms are spacious (we had a suite) with a terrace with 2 chairs and day beds, they even prepared a towel robe for...

Thank you for your comment. The art is not discussed, you do not like but many people like... You have a basket of fresh fruits and more breads in the breakfast room, in self service. For the price of the breakfast, we prefer to leave 18 euros rather than 25 euros all inclusive ; Each can choose to take supplements.... More

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.

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
