We came here because we are doing a one month road trip by luxury properties, most of them castles. 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...

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.
