“So typically French and charming.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

16 of us decided to use the hotel as a venue to celebrate one of our group's birthday.

It was rather unlucky that we all descended onto the hotel at the same time, along with another family who were having problems with their key. So sadly, the corteige was overwhelmed, and had to leave the desk un -manned for over 20 minutes - which was not a good start, given we'd all driven long journeys and were keen to sign in.

However, it was a perfect opportunity for me to mischievously take up residence behind the desk, assume the role of the concierge, (along with a feeble attempt at a French accent), to meet and greet the last members of our group as they arrived in reception. It was actually hilarious to see their reactions when they realised it was moi! So actually, it turned into a great, happy start!

Quite simply, the rooms were beautiful and classic. Sumptuous accommodation and furniture, clean and tidy but with character.

The dining room also echoed the charming ambience of the rooms. We had a fantastic (and very creamy) meal which consisted mainly of fish, but creatively presented by helpful waiters and waitresses. The wine was fine and the standard of the whole meal was sensational.

Given that we were a slightly rowdy excited crowd of 16 English folk, the staff were lovely as were the other (French) guests who were also enjoying a birthday celebration.

Breakfast looked good, but quite honestly I was so replete from the meal from the evening before that I couldn't eat a thing. Just lovely aromatic French coffee for me.

All in all, memorable, French, welcoming and a place I would return to gladly.

Room Tip: Try and get a room in the Chateau itself

Went for a 3 day break because it is so convenient to Eurotunnel/ferries etc, close to decent shopping and places of interest (in our case, Agincourt). Hit the spot on all fronts. Check-in fast and efficient, room 103 (in the main hotel) spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Staff pleasant and helpful. Restaurant food and service first class, cooking and presentation well up to first class standards (the pattiserie especially was done with flair and imagination). Don't recognise the establishment criticised by other reviewers, they must have stayed somewhere else !

Room Tip: Room 103 in main hotel

We went for the one night gastronomique offer €100 pp for dinner bed and breakfast. We were offered room upgrade to big room above bar with fable views of lovely grounds. Comfortable room with lovely bathroom. Dinner was very good, fab presentation and tasty. More fish than meat and no vegie option on set menu in deal. Expensive drinks but good choice. Will def visit again on similar deal.

Took the Escape to the Chateau package which was one night's bed, breakfast and dinner. It was expensive but we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in this charming little place- nice comfortable room (we were in "the cottages" next to the main building), sweet bar area and lovely restaurant (although it must be said that the service from our waitress didn't quite match the prices on the menus) and beautiful setting in the grounds. It was a perfect place to unwind for a night before venturing off elsewhere in this part of France.

We had an overnight stop here and were delighted with everything. We travelled with our dog and were warmly welcomed by a charming young man called Clement, who showed us to our "cottage". We were upgraded to a very spacious family suite, as there was more room for our large dog, such a kind gesture. There was even a dear little dog bed and bowl provided, but our dog was rather too big to take advantage of this extra! The grounds are lovely and there are paths to wander over 12 acres. The food was excellent too. Wifi was very temperamental in the cottage, but for one night that wasn't a big problem. The bathroom was very well equipped with plenty of towels and towelling robes were also provided. We will certainly plan to stay again.

Room Tip: Dogs are warmly welcomed in the cottages, so not able to comment on the rooms in the hotel itself!

We recently stayed 3 nights at the chateau for our wedding anniversary and overall were very happy with our stay. The staff were extremely helpful and very kindly upgraded us from a luxury room to a suite in the cottages which was a lovely surprise. Food at the chateau is very good although quite pricey for what you get as you could easily eat at a michelin restaurant here for less money and the breakfast buffet is fairly limited. Good location to explore the local area, we would be happy to return at some point.
