Fantastic stay, staff were very good and Diana who served breakfast was just amazing, so helpful and attentive and told us all about the history of the hotel. We also had a lovely supper in the bar on the night of arrival.

A stay in this castle hotel is a double time travel. Firstly, you have authentic medieval architecture: the castle building, the grounds and side buildings, the bars with wooden beams and fireplaces, the vaulted restaurant... Especially when you sit in the bar or have breakfast or dinner in the restaurant, you enjoy the authentic feeling of a historic place. Secondly, this hotel is exactly like a French luxury hotel was half a century ago, except that it now has become affordable with four-star rates. I say that because you should know what to expect. Some reviewers have complained that the rooms are darkish. Yes, you stay in an medieval castle where once monks lived and medieval castles have small windows! And, yes, some 20 years ago Chateau des Gilly had been a very expensive 5-star luxury hotel which has been downgraded to four stars which means that now it offers very good value for money. Now, let's go systematic: LOCATION: Can't be beaten. You are halfway between Dijon and Beaune and very close (2km, even walkable) to Clos de Vougeot, one of Burgundy's most famous vineyards with castle & museum. The tiny village of Gilly (which once supported the castle) is charming and also the adjacent village Vougeot. There are wineries with tasting opportunities in easy walking distances, also many restaurants. Absolutely quiet location. CASTLE & GROUNDS: A beautiful ensemble of the main castle building, side buildings, a church, moats (one of them filled with water), stone walls, gates, a French park and a romantic park with a stream. Very nice to stroll across the hotel grounds and into the village. The castle itsself is medieval and sturdy. ROOMS: We stayed in on the rooms of the cheapest category. It had a historical feeling with antique furniture and a wallpaper with bright flower décor. The bathroom had tiles of real marble and a bathtub. The toilet was separate with a bidet. There was a vestibule with a closet and a rack for your suitcase (so you did not have the suitcase in your room). Double doors provide noise insulation. In the room there was a sitting area with two chairs and a table, so that it was like a junior suite. There was a modern TV set, coffee maker and free wifi. Large double bed with comfortable mattress. Yes, the room was darkish (because of the small ancient window), but well-lit by many lamps. The marble tiles in the bathroom were half a century old, but the joints were well repaired with silicone. Good supply of high-class toiletries in small containers. Bathtub/shower combination. PUBLIC ROOMS: This castle hotel has a most beautiful bar. Actually, the bar consists of two rooms. The main room is cozy, with wooden beams, sofas and chairs and a fireplace, the other room is larger, with a vaulted ceiling, stuffed deer heads, also a fireplace (fire is made on request) and tables for playing cards or other games. Do not miss sipping a bottle of excellent Crémant de Bourgogne in the bar! RESTAURANT: The architecture of the restaurant is spectacular, with gothic columns and a vaulted ceiling. Dinner is very atmospheric. The quality of food is outstanding, the wine list is extensive and the prices are reasonable. The most expensive starter is foie gras (well-presented with dark chocolate and orange marmalade) for €22, the most expensive main dish is beef tenderloin for €36. But also the scallops, the veal and the chicken were just excellent. BREAKFAST: Breakfast is also served in the gothic dining room. The buffet is typical for the 4-star class, with a good choice of warm and cold items. Complimentary Crémant de Bourgogne. POOL: There is a large outdoor pool (unheated) on a lawn behind the park. PARKING: Large parking area. Many charging stations for electric cars (Tesla and others). VALUE FOR MONEY: Honestly, some then years ago, Chateau de Gilly belonged to the Relais & Chateaux chain and was too expensive for us. In the meantime, the hotel had been downgraded from 5 to 4 stars and offers good value for money. No extra costs for parking. CONCLUSION: An excellent base to explore Côte d'Or. Authentic medieval castle feeling in the bar and in the restaurant. Beautiful grounds. Good restaurant. The alternative would be Chateau de Saulon in lighter renaissance style with modernized rooms. Both castles hotels are similar in ambiance, quality of rooms, restaurant and rates. Gilly has the better location and is more medieval. So, in the end it is a matter of taste which one to choose.

We stayed 3 days in this hotel in the last room available - the basic one called “tradition”. I stongly recommend to not take this one due to its out dated furniture and its darkness. Restaurant is not a great experience also. Expensive notably as meals do not have any flavor. There are many restaurants around that are better choice. Even breakfast is not a good experience: coffee so hot that it was burned, no more omelet after 9h30 and brioche dry. Staff do what they can but we feel the tiredness or démotivation. Notably at the reception. At conclusion, this hotel requires renovation in order to come back to its status 20 years ago.

Dear Olivier B, We thank you for taking time to leave a comment about your impressions following the 3 nights you stayed with us. As we discussed by e-mail before, we are sorry to learn that you did not enjoy your stay with us. For the room, that's a pity that it was not mentionned at the check-in, that we could find a solution together to offer you the room you expected. We understand your disapointement about the dinner, and we renew our appologize. It is however a pity that in our exchanges as well as in your comments it is not mentioned the commercial gesture offered at your departure. We have taking note, anyway, about all your comments and we will try to fix our mistakes. Have a lovely day Best regards

If you expect a proper 5 star hotel you may be slightly disappointed. However, the reasonable prices makes this hotel very good value-for-money. The historic setting is great, the buildings look fantastic and the dinning hall (also used for breakfast) is impressive. We had dinner at the restaurant and enjoyed it, particularly the service. Our rooms were a little tired, and seemingly without air-conditioning though we didn't mind as the outside temperature wasn't above 25 degrees. We very much enjoyed the newly renovated bathrooms. There are also plenty of easily accessible free chargers, which is always a relief when traveling with an electric car. Overall, we'd recommend this hotel to anyone who'd like to stay in a historic chateau at a very reasonable price.

We booked a Junior Suite at the Chateau de Gilly for 2 nights to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. On arrival no mention was made of our Anniversary and we were told that the restaurant was fully booked during our two night stay. The room was very big but dark and dreary with no air conditioning. The heat was fierce especially in the bathroom where there were no shutters. We had to keep the drape curtains closed the whole time. The windows were in very bad repair and the whole place is in need of a huge makeover. The Chateau looks much better from the outside and the grounds are quite nice. We had breakfast in our room which was a very minimal continental breakfast. The room service menu is very limited for other meals which you can also have on the terrace. So for our Silver Wedding Anniversary meal we had to choose from a room service menu on the terrace beside a very noisy family with children running everywhere. The food itself was very disappointing. The worst I have experienced in Burgundy. The staff in general show little interest in the guests and certainly do not make one feel welcome or special in anyway. This hotel is extremely overpriced and I would personally not return.

Dear WicketEngland, We thank you for taking time to send us your impressions about your stay. We are trully sorry to learn that your stay did not meet your expectations. Concerning your silver anniversary, we would like to appologize that we did not show any attention for this at the check in, espcially if it was mentionned in the reservation. For the reservation restaurant, as it was mentionned in the confirmation by e-mail and with a survey sent 1 week before the arrival, the reservation remain mandatory. The covid-19 protocol forces us to respect a meter between each table, which means that we have to reduce the number of seats in our restaurant. We are sorry that no solution has been possible for you with a restaurant nearby. The staff try to do their best to offer to our guests the warm welcome they deserve, and we are sorry that it was not felt. We hope anyway that these points was mentionned at the reception service in order to find some solutions. We stay at your disposal for any further discussion.
