If you have a long drive back to the coast (we had travelled from the Mosel) and need a night's rest before the ferry home this is a real find.
thanks to other TA reviewers we were not disappointed by Le Chateau; the entrance hall makes quite an impact and the rooms (bedrooms and lounge/dining room) are full of period detail.
Very nice breakfast, a friendly welcome, and decent value compared to some places we stayed.
We ate at Cafe de la Bistade, around 5 minutes walk away, which is a very characterful, down to earth French village cafe serving nice uncomplicated home made food, more than you can eat, for a very fair price, and the locals will make you very welcome. The cafe owner says Le Chateau has been used for filming and you can understand why.
Our rating for the location may seem modest but this merely reflects the fact that local amenities are limited but for a rest-stop ahead of travelling onward (most likely back to the UK I think) this is not really a big deal.If you wanta bit more sophisticated dining choice, Bourbourg is only a relatively short drive away.
