This large chateau has only 4 personnel, including gardeners. The policy is no room cleaning unless the stay is for 3 or more days. The restaurant is closed. The lady on reception Vero was very helpful and pleasant but she had to do the breakfast, the bar, in fact everything. At 8.00pm there were no staff until the next morning. Therefore guests returning from dinner out have to let themselves in and search around for lights in a totally dark hotel. The breakfast was very basic. The pool has building work being done. Full marks to the 3 staff we saw but the owners are obviously cutting costs to basic minimum. This was our sixth hotel stay in the last 12 days and was the worst by a long way.

We stayed 2 nights at the Chateau and couldn’t have been made more welcome. As you approach the Chateau it looks beautiful as you come up the drive lined with trees. A little sunshine would have added to the beauty, sadly for us this weekend it was not to be. Dinner was a surprise menu prepared by the chef with local produce. We were asked about any dislikes or allergies and the food was prepared accordingly. Totally amazing, ingenious with unexpected and ingredients we had not tried before. Let the chef do this for you too! The only downside was an American guest who was staying our second night. Rude to staff, demanding and thinking he knew best we felt we had to apologise to the staff for his obnoxious behaviour! Apart from him the whole stay was delightful and thoroughly recommend going there. Thank you

My wife and I, our son and his fiancee and two close friends checked in here for a short break to help us celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. Our chosen room was one that we had stayed in many times which included a sitting room in an elevated tower (No. 21) We ate in the Chateau restaurant one night prior to which we had a wine tasting & tour in the Chateau cellars. The maitre & sommelier (Alex & Constantin) were so knowledgeable but also brought flair and personability to their time with us. We recommend this Chateau highly

I am sorry to say that this hotel doesn’t live up to expectations. I wanted to love staying here, but after 4 night I’m glad to be going home. On arrival there was no one to help with our bags! No shower cubicle in the bath room Only a hand held shower in the bath, I find this a bit odd as this is not a cheap hotel. There was no kettle in the room so we could make a cup of tea after our long journey, however the receptionist a lovely lady left her post to make us one. The management don’t seem to worry about the resident children running up and down the corridors screaming. They may live here but as a paying guest it’s not what I want to here. I’m not going to talk about the Wi-Fi it depresses me. The best thing about the hotel is the restaurant the food was above average this I would give 10/10. The hotel needs investment and a little love.

We are grateful for the time you took to share your thoughts on your stay at Château de Marçay. We do not have a porter but usually the person at the reception offers his help with pleasure. When you book, don't hesitate to tell us your preferences (shower / bath) so that your stay is at its best. The installation of kettle in the rooms or a specific corner is part of our projects for the next season, meanwhile, as far as possible we meet your requests for hot drinks. Our hotel welcomes families and we are sorry if your stay has not been as quiet as expected. Finally, we thank you for your compliments on the restaurant, and we forward them to the services concerned. Looking forward to seeing you at the Château. The team of Château de Marçay

We are a couple in our 30s and stayed in the main part of the chateaux for 2 nights. The room and bathroom were ample sized and the fan kept us cool (but no aircon I could find). The idyllic surroundings make this place peaceful and quiet. The pool is heated to a perfect ‘cooling’ off temperature from sunbathing and also offers a view of the valley and Marçay itself. It was often quiet so we had it to ourselves. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They suggested a garage for our car that needed fixing and the restaurant accommodated our eating habits. We are vegetarian and I am pregnant but they went out their way to prove things without raw eggs and soft cheese, which is difficult in France! We are ‘foodies’ and I was really impressed with the local, creative ingredients and menu in general. Everything we had was delicious and explained upon serving. The grounds are big enough to go for a gentle stroll to dogest or eat your own picnic in the shade, play tennis or pétanque. We hope to come back!
