We stayed at the Domaine de Brandois with our 3 young children (age 4 months up to 5 years old), we were informed at the time of booking that it was a child friendly hotel. It was not. The restaurant only serves a la carte evening meals (starting at 7:30pm which is too late for our children) and no kids... More

A classic chateau exterior with stunningly beautiful 'art' interior decor. Everything about this hotel was perfect, fabulously spacious bedrooms and lovely country views. Both the dinner and breakfast were of the highest standard and all the staff we met were warm,friendly and helpful. I would however like to say that Charles was a particular star and undertook his duties with... More

A beautiful 'art' hotel in a handsome Chateau. Lovely staff, beautiful rooms and a delicious dinner. Charles, our waiter, was superb. Nothing too much trouble and gave us the perfect level of attention. If you want an excellent French experience of class and hospitality then you will not be disappointed. Thank you. Chris and Brin (21/6/16, room 117).

We dined here with 2 good friends. The hotel looks authentic 16th Century, but the menu explains that this is an illusion. In England we would call it a Victorian Folly, it was built in 1869 to look 2 or 300 years older. The grounds are large and attractive and you would not realise you are close to the A87... More

Just returned from a weekend break here and it was bliss. Easy to get to from flight to nantes - about an hour's drive- and a stunning country setting. Is a little out of town so definitely recommend having a car, and lots to explore on nearby coastline. Room in the priory was spacious and very comfortable. The pool is... More

The hotel provides different grades of accommodation in the main Chateau, the detached Priory and more reasonable priced chalet type rooms away from the main buildings. This review relates to the main Chateau. Our stay was in mid June during mid week, though busy not at capacity. Staffing was not an issue. The place has a contemporary design in an... More

From the exterior, the Domaine de Brandois is beautiful, in a lovely park setting. I also understand that the dining room has quite a reputation but as a hotel guest, I was very disappointed. My disappointed started with our arrival when there was no staff to be found. Lack of service remained a consistent problem throughout our stay and when... More

I have stayed here several times and never been disappointed, rooms are clean and bedding in fantastic condition, a superb restaurant with great breakfast and is surrounded by very attractive countryside. If you like horses this is the place to go riding.

The most crass example of a style over substance in a boutique hotel. I would not recommend it! The website is extremely deceptive. We were put in a cupboard room at the very top of the chateau which was probably originally used for storage - now ridiculously transformed into a room where banging your head on everything is unavoidable. Carpet... More
