Stayed New Year's Eve for one night. We had no trouble finding the chateau by foillowing the instructions given. Plenty of signs for the hotel as we drove closer.
Room was excellent, a basic room on the front corner of the chateau, but this is where everything went wrong. The curtains are on poles that ensure that the curtains do not hang against the window recesses. Hence, with full floodlights shining straight up at the room, yes, you have it, the room was lit up better than in daylight. We were assured that the floodlights would go off at 2300, but did they hell, they stayed on all night. This meant that we did not sleep at all for the whole night. We brought the problem to the notice of the receptionist in hte morning, but she simply shrugged her shoulders and said that we should have called the night line, which, incidentally, is stressed for emergencies only. What a waste of money, Euros 178 for a totally sleepless night. Never again, and they did not even offer a discount for the trouble they caused. We were flying straight through from Bordeaux to New Zeal;and on check-out day and really needed a good night's sleep; alas, no such luck.
Breakfast was a real rip-off. We had stayed at a hotel in Perpignan the previous few days, and breakfast was Euros 7 per person. This one was Euros 18 per person for not much more.
Beware, if you want to obtain value for money, try somewhere else.
