“Charming and tranquil chateau very close to Paris”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Ermenonville is a quiet and picturesque village just north of Paris and with easy access to the airport. The chateau is situated in a park area that cuts the village in two. The area is very tranquil and scenic...a big change from the hustle and bustle of nearby Paris.
The rooms are large, and our room looked out over the large pond on the property. The decor of the hotel and the rooms fit with the building without being overly rich and garish. The rooms are quite large.
The dining room is beautiful and perfect for a romantic dinner at sunset. We chose the menu for our dinner, and were highly impressed with the quality of the meal, the never-ending courses, and the inventiveness of each course. It is expensive, but worth it for splurging for one night. The main menu does not change from night to night, so I would recommend planning to eat somewhere else the second night. We chose a restaurant situated across from the hotel, which served a more traditional (but no less delicious) menu. In either place, the staff is very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is also served in the dining room, and is a basic continental breakfast.
Overall, we were really happy with our weekend at Chateau D'Ermenonville. Access to Paris and the surrounding areas, but with mornings and evenings in a beautiful, historic, and relaxing environment.

Like living in a fairy tale, this chateau is exquisite. We had a magical time and can't wait for our return. Close to CDG, I'd recommend a night here to or from a trip to Paris. There aren't many restaurants, shops, etc., but go and get lost in the history of this magnificent property and its grounds.

This hotel is ideally located east of Charles de Gaulle airport, yet in it's own parkland. It is a beautiful setting for a lovely chateau. Some of the rooms have still to be updated, and can look a bit tired, but the renovated rooms are excellent. In the older rooms, the plumbing and heating leave a bit to be desired, but it is still very comfortable despite that. For a stopover on way back from Paris, in the middle of the forest, yet just a few minutes from the A1 motorway, it is hard to imagine a nicer place to stop.

Room Tip: Try for a room overlooking the lake

Go stay before it is modernized,updated and the staff put through the empowerment training plan.
We thought it was just as one would have hoped for. The setting is superb. I do not quite understand why the exterior of the building looks so pristine. Inside it would be best too speak French or at least have some understanding. Our room 208 was of largeish size,very comfortable but lacking in any thing remotely connected to Apple or Google..The in house wifi did not quite reach this far from reception but there was a shower that was remarkable in its pressure out put. Dinner was a very serious matter and just as it should be in these surroundings .Very formal and extremely good. The wine list was short but interesting and the menu was similar. All very well presented and not once did any one say "Enjoy". The size of the napkins and the quality of the wine glasses told part of the story.
I hope Hotels like this will continue to be found and available but sadly believe they are a dying breed which is a huge shame...

My wife and I stayed here on two separate occasions in August 2013. We booked the château because it is close to CDG airport in Paris, where we were picking up and dropping off our oldest daughter as part of a two-week summer vacation in Paris, Normandy and Brittany. We preferred not to stay in a hotel airport, thus the château seemed a reasonable choice. Well, the good news is that the château looks great from the outside, its prices are reasonable and the food is quite good (though somewhat on the high end). The bad news: as others have pointed out, is that the rooms desperately need updating. There is no air conditioning, which during our first stay was really necessary. I won't go into great detail but an update to the rooms would vastly improve this place. As for the service, we found everyone accommodating but perhaps because my wife and I speak French we didn't encounter some of the problems that only English-speaking people have had here. In sum, if you are willing to accept so-so rooms, you might find this an option near CDG airport.

Stayed here on an overnight stop whilst in Paris on business.
The Chateau is a typical French style old fashioned Chateau, which isn't a bad thing.
It has a charm about it and is quite imposing as you drive into the hotel. The setting is quite idyllic with a lake and plenty of greenery surrounding the area, so its peaceful and pleasant!
I didn't eat here as I checked in very late (this is a plus as someone is always there!) and left early in the morning, but colleagues who have stayed here say the food is good.
Its not a modern hotel and I don't think it pretends or should be , but the rooms are spacious enough and have all the relevant amenities. Only drawback is the TV only shows french programmes so I couldn't pick up BBC world service to find out whats happening back home which could be a disadvantage for business travellers.
Overall a satisfactory stay

The chateau is just wonderful as well as the surrounding. It takes your breath away when seeing it from the road. The lake is wonderful and I have a room with view over the lack, I was enchanted. The rooms needs some upgrading.The food was really good.
