The hotel looks like a beautiful manorial estate among beautiful grounds, including a pond with elegant swans, energetic ducks and boisterous frogs at night. Service was excellent with a staff that speaks any language you need, including Hindi and Nepali. Speaking of that staff, one staffer went out of her way to make us welcome. Nepali speaker Samikchha was excellent, going as far as bringing us 2 bottles of water at the pool, where there usually isn’t service. I hope the hotel management recognizes her excellence. Altogether highly recommended.

We stayed at the Chateau Grande Barrail for three nights. It's a very nice hotel within minutes of Saint Emilion. The service was very friendly, professional and helpful. We had a deluxe room with a small patio and found the bed to be very comfortable. We found the food to be excellent, both for room service (when we were too tired to go to dinner) and at the restaurant. Only issue was when we sat outside on the patio for a drink and were forgotten for about 20 minutes, however, the server was very apologetic and offered our drinks on the house. The location is beautiful and tranquil and an easy drive to Saint Emilion. We didn't utilize the e bikes but noticed people using them and biking to town as well. We can't comment on the spa or pool as we did not use them (the pool hadn't yet opened for the season). We loved the Bordeaux region and specifically Saint Emilion and hope to visit again someday. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Chateau Grand Barrail again.

This hotel is quite a nice stay, but honestly not 5 stars for me. Overall, the facilities and location are quite good. The spa and treatment/service are probably the highlight of the entire place. My wife and I had a duo massage and facials and they were perfection. The dinner in the restaurant was quite good and very reasonably priced. The terrace is a lovely spot to enjoy an afternoon snack and wine. However, it is where my problem also lies. The hotel has several different menus, with different items, and overlapping times. So, if you are in your room, and the terrace is serving say a croque monsieur, you can't have that delivered to your room. You can walk down, order it, and then carry it back up to your room, though. This is all a little frustrating but not the reason I can't give this place five stars. The service in the afternoon is very hit and miss. One day outside was wonderful and everything you want. The next day, we were enjoying a bottle of wine and the snack they had just brought. The server dropped a booklet with the receipt which I didn't worry about signing since we were staying there AND had just gotten food. Less than 5 minutes later she came back and was quite frustrated that we hadn't signed. I'm sorry, but I expect a better level of service at a place like that. You know I'm a guest and it truly should not matter when I sign it. We settle up upon checkout anyway. I'd stay here again to give them another shot, especially given the service in the spa and at dinner.

This hotel is really amazing, awesome location in Saint Émilion, great staff team ready to support you, very good breakfast with amazing croissants… But, right now, during spring season, they are under a renovation and there are some halls with unfinished parts yet, and we had the unhappiness to stay in a room with a awful view due to the build remodeling as you can see on the photos. Hope to come back there with a better room experience after this renovation.
