“Back to the Middle Ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The enormous castle did not have a dull moment. Very easy to navigate with audio instructions, great views from the battlements, and creative use of mannequins and props to make it all come alive. Great for families, history buffs, and romantics.

“Hotel in hystoric style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

We stayed in a suite duplex room with a king bed at the top floor while the bottom floor was a kind of living room. The room was very spacious, the kids loved the space they had. The setting of the hotel right at the heart of the hystoric fort is majestic and impressive. The visit of the museum in the fort is educative and worthwhile. The rooms have a door giving direct acces to the castle ramparts with excellent views of the city. The personnel is friendly and helpfull.

“Very large chateau fort many centuries of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Some restauration works ongoing currently but the building is impressive. I am not sure if everyone would be impressed by dioramas but it worked for the kids.

“A Trip Back in Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Although it took us about 40 minutes to figure out how to get inside, it was well worth the hunt. No crowds just lots of historic exploration and a feeling of stepping back in time. I had read about this fortress in Eyewitness Travel and made a point to drive the 2-1/2 hours from Etoge to experience it. Also on my itinerary were the ramparts at Rocroi. I wouldn't have missed either.
