if you want to stay in a french chateau, you could do worse than staying here. It's got everything you would expect. Luxury, decadence, grandeur. Good food, and grand setting. The staff are friendly and you get a real sense of history.

We visited Chateau d'Esclimont over a year ago and we are still talking about the magical experience. We stayed in a tower room and the entire stay was like a fairy tale. The staff were friendly and helpful. The chateau itself is gorgeous. The interior is updated and clean, but it retained its history. We've stayed in many castles and... More

I stayed in the main body of the castle. The place is wonderfully renovated, the views on and from it are what one could expect if one were a noble with taste and money to spare. The location is very quiet and has all amenities for a countryside resort (great swimming pool during the hot season, tennis courts...). The rooms... More

We stayed here recently on the way back to the UK. The hotel is magnificent looking and the grounds are stunning, with a moat and large lawn areas. The rooms however were disapointing, our original room did not have a shower, so we paid the upgrade (85 Euro) to get a room with a shower, frankly the shower was pitiful... More

We visited this chateau 10 years ago and again last week for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We ate dinner in the restaurant and the food was very good. The service was very attentive.

Spacious room, beautiful scenery, park-like grounds, beautiful renovation of a 1490 chateau, and delicious dinner exquisite lay prepared. All this within a short distance from Paris and a short hop to Chsrtres and versailles. We enjoyed it very much.

Incredible Chateau, great park, perfect views in the foggy mornings, nice amenities. One downside - make sure you check the unexpected breakfast charges if you didn't have one. Also you may get an extremely bad attitude from this hotel staff after pointing out their mistake.

My husband and I found this chateau online. The pictures looked great even though the price was expensive for us at 190 euros for the cheapest room per night. We figured we would splurge since the place looked so nice. Upon arriving, we both said how beautiful it looked from the outside. The outside of the chateau and the grounds... More
