I stayed at this hotel with my family over the Thanksgiving Holiday. I was very dissapointed. The hotel bills itself as a fine hotel but the service is far below even a mediocre standard. The staff had so many failings I cannot list them all but here are a few: failure to open the door when you approach with bags, failure to move out of your way when you are walking (remarkable really - they just hold their ground and make you stop or work around them while they pass by), failure to include sheets and pillows for the pull out bed in my suite, failure to attend to the hot tub which was always too cold, failure to include all food ordered in my room service orders, failure to keep the informal restaurant open during the Thanksgiving brunch (couldn't even purchase a sandwich in the bar that day), failure to include regular coffee in the room (had decaf only - maid never corrected), the chef at breakfast consistently overcooked eggs and omeletes (every morning), overall failure to even try to show they are in the business of serving the hotel guests. Beyond the poor staff, the bed was extremely uncomfortable. The lumpy mattress had to be original to the hotel and was completely worn out.
On the brighter side of things, the hotel was very well decorated for the holiday. But, the appearance did not make up for the really poor service. If you are in the area you should stay at the Hilton at Branson Landing or Big Cedar Lodge. Big Cedar is not a hotel but its staff is far more accomodating than the Chateau and the amenities are far superior. I would not recommend statying at the Chateau and I will not be going back.
