We had a very pleasant stay at this pretty hotel. We were lucky to visit when it was quite peaceful. There were some weddings and other events taking place but these did not really affect our stay. The heated outdoor swimming pool was a particular highlight, we had it almost to ourselves. We had a beautifully presented dinner outside on the terrace. We enjoyed exploring the local area on the bikes provided free by the hotel.

I went there on a company retreat with a group of 20 colleagues of diverse nationalities, as we work for an international organization, for two days and one night. We had the choice of rooms between the historical part, i.e. in the main part of the château, and the new section of the property. Those of us who selected the historical part were very happy and those in the new section were very disappointed. The rooms were not as modern and chic as the photos on the site led them to believe. On the other hand, in the château, the rooms were full of charm, each one a different size and set-up and each one decorated uniquely. It is not every often one can say they slept in a castle so I wasn't even sure why some of my colleagues wanted the modern part. You can find that everywhere. The only complaint I have is the quality of the pillows. Horribly soft with no support. We had two lunches and a dinner in the château dining area, which is really beautifully and tastefully decorated. The food was very good although nothing spectacular that I will remember. The service is quite good. We used two different meeting rooms downstairs for our retreat and they were perfect for our needs, just the right size and that opened right out onto the terrace. Too bad that it was so rainy and windy and gray out during our visit so we didn't really get to use the terrace but it was nice to have natural lighting for the meeting rooms. There is a cute little pool on the terrace that we unfortunately didn't get to use either.

We stopped here as it looked a good place to stop on the drive back from Cognac to Calais. It's set in really nice grounds on the outskirts of Gouvieux. Unfortunately, there are lots of roads about that our TomTom satnav thought were driveable, but were just footpaths - so great for a Sunday morning stroll down to the thriving village market, but useless for getting to our hotel in the dark! In the end, we found it.

There was a really great welcome from the man on reception (and everyone we met was happy to speak English, but would let us survive in French too). The public rooms are in the old chateau and are impressive (but the dining room had too strong a smell of fresh paint - we guess from that afternoon), but our garden room in the annexe was more motel than chateau. The beds were very comfortable, but the room was too hot for the provided duvet, and having only french windows, we couldn't really leave the window open.

Dinner was very good, but expensive - even choosing one of the menus. Going a la carte would have been prohibitively expensive. Service was impeccable and attentive. Breakfast was a fairly standard buffet, so at €15 a little overpriced. But to balance the food, the room had been on offer, so was not expensive. We did notice other guests on what looked an all inclusive package with different dinner menus, but that wasn't advertised to us during the booking process - so it might be worth contacting the hotel direct rather than using a booking site and enquiring. You wouldn't really want to not eat there.

There were a number of activities like table tennis tables, mountain bikes etc, but our one night stay meant we didn't use these. The hotel pool had closed at the end of October.

On balance, I'd give it 3.5 blobs, but trip advisor doesn't let me. So it's 3 blobs out of 5, let down by the basic room and the high restaurant prices.

We stayed here on a Saturday night, before leaving France for home. A few days before we arrived, we got a note saying that there would be a wedding that night, and as a consequence the restaurant would not be open. That seemed reasonable.

What they didn't tell us was that there would be a hotel-shattering disco shaking the grounds from 12 midnight until 3am. It was absolutely horrible, and there was no way to sleep through it, not even with earplugs. When we complained, they offered us a free coffee as compensation.

Given the noise levels, we might as well have camped on the runway at CDG. The hotel should not have rented any rooms that night, or they should at least have been honest, and told us that if we insisted on staying there, we should plan on a sleepless night. It was a horrible experience, and one that we will never repeat.

When visiting this well hidden Gem tucked away near Europe’s Horse Mecca of Chantilly, whatever you do, don’t ask for a poached egg!

Château de la tour is a lovely location, with a heritage style hotel, clean rooms, brass knobbed keys, and a classic French kitchen. The staff are competent but some of them at least with the well known French efficiency which those of us who are not French might describe as inflexibility arrogance or rudeness.

Im Irish, I have been travelling globally on international business across Europe and Asia for 25 years. I love france and I’ve been committed to the beautiful “Le Château De la Tour” since 2007 during my biannual trips to Chantilly. We probably buy 30 bed nights a year here, and rent office space when carrying out recruitment interviews so I guess we spend maybe €10k annual with this hotel and over the decade that adds up.

The question is at what stage do you not accept “c'est impossible”. It’s impossible!
I have recently had gastric surgery and on Thursday night I explained to the waiter “I had surgery recently and I can only eat small amounts of food which are high in protein and soft to eat. Otherwise I will be very sick! What can you recommend?” Google translate helped!

A soup and smoked salmon on toast would have been perfect at this €173 per accommodation but the response and I quote exactly was “non monsieur il est impossible”, - it’s impossible - I settled for a goats cheese bruschetta and went to bed feeling distinctly nauseous!

The next morning 8 am I was joined by my colleague for breakfast and I requested two poached eggs and the knee jerk answer was “Non” whatever you see is what we have!
I explained again “Je me suis fait opérer récemment et je ne peux manger que de petites quantités d'aliments riches en protéines et molles. Sinon je serai très malade!” (I had surgery recently and I can only eat small amounts of food which are high in protein and soft to eat. Otherwise I will be very sick!)

The answer again was totally inflexible, no apology- there is no one in the kitchen! I pleaded with my colleague who again pleaded with the waiter- but again “No it’s impossible- the kitchen is closed”. I even offered to poach the two eggs myself but eventually and totally frustrated I abandoned breakfast and packed my bags to leave.
At reception checking out.... I explained how unhappy I was with their flexibility. Again no apology, no flexibility and when I requested that the least she can do is to discount breakfast off the €173 hotel bill for one night, this was also impossible.

This isn’t normal any more in France. During my 9 day visit to France I stayed in two other hotels and my special dietary request were greeted with “but of course Monsieur”. So my conclusion is that Le Château de la Tour is one of the last bastions of French culinary inflexibility.

Well good luck with that, inflexibility shouldn’t pay, so Au revoir Le Château de la Tour!

Mícheál O’Conghaile.

Just stayed there this past week. In the middle of no where and the staff was unfriendly. Very isolated and at least 25 min to Chantilly. Towels super thin and breakfast was just ok.

Upon arrival we were told that the dining room was closed that evening for a wedding. No problem, the staff was helpful about suggesting alternatives. What they did not tell us was that a disco inferno would be rattling the walls of our room, complete with screaming DJ, until sometime after 3:00 am. When we complained, we were told that our room confirmation included information that there might be music until 5:00 am. My husband has no recollection of ever receiving any such notice. They acted as though it was our fault for not canceling our reservation. If you decide to risk staying here, read all of their emails carefully or you may end up like us, sadder and wiser, having blown $425 on a night of misery.

The Chateau is simply beautiful!
Great location just minutes from Chantilly. Service a bit impersonal but very efficient. Breakfast not huge (i.e. No fried eggs and bacon) but of excellent quality and freshness.
The only minor disappointment is the size of rooms. We booked a (as it called) superior forest view twin room which was just fair. Small and basic, very clean though. A tip: try to confirm if your room is on the main building or at the new wing next to it. I would certainly revisit dispite the room issue...

A stunning french Chateau. Family run through three generations which colours the experience from beginning to end. The setting is beautiful and the property is cared for with love only a familiy run place can display. The Chateau itself is beautiful in a beautiful park, the rooms are lovely and very comfortable - even excellent if you get one of the newly refurbished rooms. The staff is polite, helpful and very friendly. The dining experience is excellent. Breakfast is a wonderful buffet, lunch and dinner a true fine dining experience - is glorious on the terrace in summer or enjoyed inside in one of the three dining rooms. My very highest recommendations!
