“Stunning setting”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We stayed here for just one night on recommendation from some friends. We tried to pack in a swim, meal and walk by the river - which we did, but there was lots more to see and do but we didn't have the time. Our accommodation was one of the little modern cabins just yards from the main Chateau. Immaculately presented, clean and quiet. Lots of wildlife and gorgeous old trees and plants. The evening meal was a bit disappointing. A 2 choice per course set menu (4 courses in all) including wine was €19...which may sound good but we have lived in France for 8 years and have had better 'plat du jours' in a simple country brasserie ... Didn't have breakfast, so can't comment. The bar and terrace was brilliant though...especially as the evening was so still and warm. Would use again.

http://www.vacanciel.com/hotel-club-la-ferte-imbault-41-452.html says
- 21 rooms "castle" from 1 to 4 persons served by lift.
- 17 rooms "domain" in the external dependencies to 100 meters from the castle.
- 20 new rooms "park" spacious 1 to 3 people 100 m from the castle.
So if you dream of sleeping in a real castle you have 1 chance on 3
The beds are the same everywhere
Breakfast is ok but only french white bread
For tasty lunch and dinner you can choose between 2 menus

I booked this at the last minute as the hotel we should have been staying emailed to say they would be shut that night so I searched around on the internet and came up with this. The site said there were only 3 rooms left and as it looked fantastic I booked it. As we drove up the drive it really looked as if we had struck lucky. However, we were given keys and told to find our room in what appeared to be a converted stable block some way away. The stairwell was extremely grubby and our room was the size of a cupboard - it measured 9' (at the widest point) by 11'. The base of shower was filled with sediment so we didn't use it. Despite my booking confirmation stating there would be a choice of menu for dinner, there was no choice. The food was awful and we found that there were only 2 other couples staying that night also housed in the stable block - no-one was in the chateau itself or in the little bungalows in the grounds. Why on earth did the web site say there were only 3 rooms left when the place was deserted? Due to the awful dinner we saved ouselves the 10 euros each for breakfast and bought a baguette in the village as we had plenty of food in the car. Do not stay here.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't stay in the stable block

We booked this hotel because the idea of staying in a castle was really appealing. When booking we even paid more to stay in the actual castle than in one of the outbuildings. It was completely disappointing! It's really nothing like a castle inside. Driving in it looked ok but once we got in and saw the rooms it was horrible. We booked through bookings.com and the photos were nothing like the actual rooms. None of the staff speak english which was very difficult, even when we tried to speak French using our guide books etc they were very unhelpful. We saw 4 rooms inside the main castle building, all the same furnishings and all the same terrible standard. The first 2 rooms were on the first floor and stunk of cigarettes, then the 2 rooms we stayed in were on the second floor. I don't know how this place got its star rating, I would think it lucky to get 2 stars. Decor is like a 1980' boarding house, very basic and not at all nice. Blankets are old and horrible, beds and pillows very uncomfortable and feel cheap and no clock or extras in the room, just beds and a tv basically. No toiletries either, only a soap. We stayed 3 nights and house keeping didn't come the 2nd day. When we tried to explain to the staff they were rude and eventually just handed us some fresh towels. No apology. Location was also a problem, the village is very small and nothing was open during our stay. We had to drive to the next village half an hour away to eat and there was limited options there as well. Hotel serves food but it's all in french and set menus. No one was able to translate for us. We also discovered that there is a pool and tennis court. Nothing was communicated to us about using these facilities so not sure if they are for everyone. We spent 2 months in Europe and this was by far the worst accommodation of our trip. And so disappointing since we'd been looking forward to our castle stay. Look elsewhere, this place is horrible! We couldn't wait to leave.

Room Tip: A room in a hotel or guest house somewhere else.
