“Deserving of the wonderful descriptions - a great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

From the moment we entered the gates, we were made to feel welcome. The chateau is beautifully kept and decorated, and as well as fantastic rooms, there are numerous areas in which to lounge and relax. Each room is different, and the older design style has been maintained, with modern comforts added and sympathetic to this. The bathroom we had was in the old tower area, and had a round shape with a bath in the centre. Not all of the rooms have showers, so if you do not like baths, be sure to request a room with shower. The toilets were unique but functional. The rooms have incredible views of the large and beautifully kept grounds. There is lots of room to roam and explore, and there are lovely areas to sit and read or have a drink indoors or outside. The restaurant had great food, but the service was not very good - one of the only negatives of the chateau. The pool looked good, but it was too cold to swim.

Room Tip: If you need a shower, be sure to request a room with this.

We were impressed by the hotel manager coming out to greet us. The staff in general were all charming. Our room was tastefully decorated, the plumbing interesting and the towels soft! The original frescos have been preserved wherever possible and the gardens beautifully laid out. Sadly the weather was too inclement to swim but the pool, nevertheless, looked inviting!

We enjoyed all the meals we had, including breakfast. The only very minor fault one could pick is the lack of tea-making skill! Maybe the next time we visit I should demonstrate how to make a really good cup of tea! Otherwise everything was excellent!

Staying at the Chateau was a highlight of our trip. This is a 13th century chateau set among spectacular gardens. Our room was furnished with 17th century antiques. Exquisite in every respect. I wish it had been a little warmer so we could have enjoyed the pool. Sublime.

Superb hotel is situated in a historic chateau on the edge of the lovely village of Bagnols with beautifully kept gardens overlooking the beaujolais countryside.

The welcome was special as we were met at our car and taken straight to our room as hotels of this quality should do. By any stretch of the imagination could our "Standard Room" be described as standard. It was spectacular with original wall murals and antique furniture in a vast room which opened onto a circular bathroom created in one of the chateau's four towers with central bath and two washbasins. The room had two doors to ensure complete acoustic insulation to the room for a sound night's sleep. Everywhere there was attention to the smallest detail.

The chateau had guest-rooms around a central courtyard within the Chateau itself whilst further rooms were in the outbuildings formed in an adjacent courtyard. Our room was on the 1st floor in the main chateau but the rooms in the adjacent courtyard appeared to offer guests a less grand room but with the opportunity to sit on a grass terrace looking out over the countryside below.

The service was exceptional and friendly.

The restaurant was superb with a huge stone staircase stretching almost the full width of the vast dining room. The food was good but not exceptional. offering well cooked if not inventive cooking. The experience was the dining room. The one criticism was the hotel's belief we wanted to hear quite loud jazz orientated music both in the dining room and the lounge. Unnecessary, out of keeping and obtrusive.

Chateau de Bagnols was not cheap, but if you want that special hotel to remember for a lifetime, this is for you. A great stop off on the way south to Provence and the Riviera or for a weekend break in wine country.

It's hard to add more about this place that han't already been said.

Brakfast was awesome - great food on a bridge...over a (dry) moat looking out over the manicured gardens?

Service was great, of course. I highly recommend this place for couples.

I am fortunate in that I live about 10 mins from the Chateau and I have twice dined at the restaurant: once at lunchtime and once in the evening.

The location could not be better. The views are outstanding and there can surely be no romantic place to sit outside for a meal. Even if you are not staying at the chateau, it is worthwhile booking a table for lunch or dinner. The staff are highly attentive, polite and professional, though on both visits there were slight issues with the food which were quickly rectified.

Overall a very good dining experience which I would have no hesitation in recommending. However, if you want the ultimate gastronomy experience, the Restaurant Guy Lassausaie in Chasselay the edge.

What a lovely place whit all different rooms, beautifully decorated, a dining room with Europe's biggest fireplace, gardens, everything. It's just simply great! Give them a try, I'm sure you won't regret! A great place to discover the Beaujolais region.

Room Tip: Try to stay in the main building. A spa is going to be started soon in the dependencies.
