Criteria to be a Relais Chateau is the basic 5C's. Comfort, Calm, Courtesy, Cuisine and Charm. I am sorry to say that it had only Cuisine and Courtesy as its major pluses . It was extremely noisy. The rooms lacked charm and had a hard bed. It was not comfortable. I expected so much more than what was offered. This hotel has extremely competent staff who are very polite. The food was good but it's so old fashioned. Serious money has to be thrown at this place to bring it up to speed.
