My wife and I had a most wonderful two days in September at this "marvellous" chateau. Everything we experienced was of the highest quality and would definitely recommend as place worth staying if you seeking to spoil yourselves. Room 8 is well worth paying for !!!!!

On a recent trip to France, with my lady, we stayed at the Grattquina for a couple of days, the Chateau is situated on the banks of the Gironde, both the hotel and the staff were very welcoming in evert respect. The room was lovely and because it has no restaurant, and I didn't want to drive into Bordeaux they... More

My family and I stayed here over the summer in what was a trip of a lifetime for my Mom's 90th Birthday. It was like driving up to a dream. If you think about France you picture Chateau Grattaquina and then to see it, is phenomenal. The grounds are simply exquisite. We rested so comfortably as the rooms are beautifully... More

I stayed here looking for a great French experience but oh what a disappointment. I have read other reviews of 12 months ago. No luggage stands. No phone directory, ordinary breakfast, no staff, no lounge, overpriced, no corkscrew in the room. Well 12 months on, absolutely nothing has changed !!!! I also brought these thing to the managers attention but... More

My husband and I recently stayed here with our 10 month old daughter. The chateau is like something out of a fairy tale. It is absolutely beautiful. We were tired from travel when arriving so stayed in the chateau on our first day. The staff prepared a beautiful picnic by the river for us and it was the perfect way... More

Loved the quiet of the Chateau after the busy buzz of Paris, we had a relaxing week at the Chateau and enjoyed the best of Bordeaux from here. The Chateau is a short drive from Bordeaux and the hotel orgranized wine tours and restaurant reservations for us. The rooms are large with great showers and a great view of the... More

My husband and I, together with another couple just stayed three days at the Chateau Grattequina! Having read the prior posts on Trip Advisor I was a little concerned prior to arriving however, I am dumbfounded as to how anyone could possibly give one negative comment on this most beautiful magnificent chateau! Yes it is a short distance from the... More

This is a classic example of always look at the big picture e.g. Google Earth. The Chateau looks good from the websites' pictures but does not show you the industrial landscape around you, it is also quite difficult to find. The service is invisable, maybe two people at any one time and they are usually busy elsewhere. There is no... More

Chateau Grattequina is a beautiful old building with big rooms, but not the high-end experience to justify $300+ per night. So before I share my negatives, it has an attractive exterior, and as is, it would be a great experience if you used it for a catered wedding ball with a place for the close family and friends to stay....

Sir, Madam, ,We have read your two reviews with interest and are sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. We have taken notice of your comments. Your stay coincided with the works on our river dock. Indeed we have wished to link Grattequina to Bordeaux via the river, a new experience for our guests. You also regretted the absence of... More

This is an event center with 10 hotel rooms – not really a working chateau. If you plan to have a wedding here, then I recommend it as an event center with adjoining guest rooms as those spaces are nice. If you’re booking just one hotel room, then read on… First, my impression of renting at a chateau is that... More
