We love this chateau - wonderful rooms, friendly staff, outstanding food. The reason we could not give five stars is it is understaffed. Luca, the manager, is very accommodating and works hard to overcome this, but service at dinner was very slow due to understaffing. Wait staff was friendly but poorly trained for the most part, and could not keep up with demand of a full house. Otherwise, this is a wonderful hotel to visit.

Probably the most amazing place I have ever stayed. The entire staff were incredible, friendly, engaging and made our stay (which was too short) incredible. Truly a must stay for anyone going to the southern burgundy area and is on the list of a “have to return to” chateau. Food was a true gastronomic experience and the mixology was incredible, the Vivant martini is an absolute must.

Great historic hotel wonderful rooms and public areas as good as the photos on the website. Wonderful courtyard formed by the stables block across from the castle. We will be going back again. Great quality food and cooking. Attentive and friendly service. I agree with the hotel dinner menu being short ( 3 choices starter and main course) But not that it only changes monthly. It was a concern expressed to us by other guests we spoke to. We stayed 3 nights which meant we decided to eat out for at least one night. Short menu right but should have a daily special or something similar. It would make this wonderful hotel perfect.

Wonderful historic building, fantastic vista. Great service although a bit cold ! Great massage. Prices are too high when one compares to say TROIS GROS which is 3 STAR MICHELIN with bedrooms which have all the latest comforts. OK food BUT it should be MUCH BETTER and MUCH MORE CHOICE on the « A La Carte » menu. As it is one goes out for lunch and dinner!!! A pity!!! Great wines although on the expensive side.

'Chateau' does not do this hotel justice. It's a step back in time, little modified, medieval castle with moat, courtyard and banqueting fireplace. The ambience is guaranteed to awaken your inner Ivanhoe / fair maiden. The cuisine is delicious and served in a friendly unpretentious way, bravo Christian and Ines. The pastry chef should be paid in gold florins for his apricot and sage tarts. Our room (#18) was huge with a equally large bath.

This is a stunning place, full of history. From the moment you are welcomed into the property and see the glorious view from the terrace you feel a small part of something that has existed for centuries. The team were helpful and attentive, the food and wine was excellent in the restaurant. The room we had was amazing. Big, old, with exposed beams that made you feel like you were king of the castle. Our 5 year old enjoyed being in the Moat. We would love to return.
