We stayed in a Superior Mountain facing room which was spacious and had a great view. Definitely worth the extra cost. Some of the standard rooms looked small and dark.
Champagne Castle's location is excellent as most of the walks start from the Hotel so you have the choice of longer demanding walks or, as we did, ones lasting 2 to 3 hours getting you back to the Hotel for lunchtime.
I had a couple of treatments at the Spa which were good and priced very reasonably. Having read other reviews, I did book before arriving which was just as well as the Hotel was full for the first two nights of our stay.
A word of warning. We arrived to find that we were not expected until the next day in spite of the fact that I had my reservation fax with me clearly stating my correct dates.. A possible disaster as there was a major Music Festival taking place in the area. Fortunately there was one room left but we did have to change rooms the next day - not an ideal start. A couple of days later I was in Reception to overhear another party with a problem having requested an upgrade to a Superior Mountain facing room by telephone and been told it was no problem and then no record on their arrival. Clearly reservations aren't Champagne Castle's strong point so would recommend your double checking all the details before your arrival.
Wireless Internet is available in the reception and lounge areas at a charge. There is a terminal if you don't have a laptop but I couldn't get it to work.
Considering all meals, mid morning coffee and afternoon tea (beware the cream scones - they are very tempting!) the Hotel is excellent value for money. Ask for an 'over 60' discount if you are eligible. Plenty of food with a wide choice. Inevitably when served buffet style it tends to be 'warm' rather than 'hot'.
If you go expecting 4 star accommodation and 3 star food but plenty of it then you won't be disappointed. We would stay there again but only in the top grade room as before.
