“St Pattys Day Wedding at Chateau Elan”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

I got married at Chateau Elan on March 17, 2012. Everything was as close to perfect as I could have asked! The staff was excellent! Jennifer my wedding coordinator was avaialble to us at anytime for any reason for almost 10 months. She was in complete control and never broke a sweat. She made my family, friends, bridal party, feel so comfortable. Even some of my guests commented on the woman who was in charge. The wedding would have never been what it was without her..and we couldnt have asked for more. At the very last minute it started to rain and she had everything moved inside and set up beautifully. The wedding went off without the slighest hitch.
Mr. Evers, the President and CEO of the Chateau was actually my point person for the last ten minutes who made sure I was calm and in perfect form prior to my entrance down the aisle. I couldnt beleive it! I was told later this is something her chooses to do..how great is that?
Our guests commented over and over about how wonderful the food and service was at the reception. We had to agree. Everyone had a super time! Then, many folks headed over to Paddys Pub to enjoy their fantastic St. Patricks Day celebration. We're so glad we chose to have our wedding events at Chateau Elan. We cant thank Jennifer or Mr. Evers enough! The quality of the staff, the rooms, the food,the spa, and the service is superb! Thank you!!

Room Tip: Suites are terrific, however the standard rooms are also very nice and spacious.

My wife and I decided to escape the hustle and bustle of life for a weekend and visit the Spa at Chateau Elan. We couldn't have asked for a better time. Attentive staff. Luxurious accommodations. Beautiful facilities. Great food and wine. If you need a place to get away and relax, I highly recommend Chateau Elan!

My wife and I stayed at the chateau élan during spring break. The grounds and the winery are quite nice but there was a lot of construction because it was low season. We wish the pool was open. At another time we would have rated our stay higher. Ps- the staff are superb.

The Georgia wines are too sweet for us but we'd put the port made here against almost any other port. You can buy this online.

We went to fort yargo state park just down the road and hiked around the lake and swam. What a nice park, Georgia is beautiful.

Stayed at this hotel for a 3 day Skip Barber Racing School at Road Atlanta. The hotel is about 10-15 mins away which makes it very convenient

The room we had was spacious, but dark. The lighting isn't the greatest, and even the bathroom was poorly lit. Would have been better to have ceiling lights instead of small lamps

There is Wi-Fi, but there is a charge for it. Minus a star here

The gym is OK at best. There are a couple cardio machines, a cable machine, and some free weights. The room was very stuffy and hot. They are doing construction on the pool which is right outside, so that might have made it worse

Golf was great. Played at the Woodland course. Very nice course, not too challenging

Food Options:
1) Cafe Elan - dinner was nice, good food, and our waiter was friendly and helpful
2) Paddys - Typical Bar. Good option if you want a burger and a beer. The fish and chips looked pretty good
3) Versailles - Had breakfast here. Buffett style with a omelette station. Nothing special
4) Golf Grille - Friendly, but nothing fancy. Sandwiches, Burgers, Salads

Check out Houndstooth restaurant (off property) if you don't want to eat at the hotel

Summary:
Overall, it was a nice stay. Clean room, but dark. Decent food options. Great golf

Stayed March 2012, traveled with friends

We held a company planning retreat the this facilitity. The staff was indifferent.
The food was sub par and over priced - in fact the salmon actually smelled so bad I asked for it to be removed from the table yet no adjustment was made to the bill. At the end of our dinner, which included left overs from lunch, we were having drinks and networking. At 10:25 were very rudely asked to leave. This is no place to do business.
The spa made it very difficult to plan for a group - they refused to book based on number of appointments I requested, even though payment was guranteed. Two days later, I called with the required guests' names,all the time slots I had been promised were already taken. The spa facility was averagage - the sauna and steam room were tiny and the products provided nothing special. There are many better locations to have a retreat.

The rooms were beautifully clean. Service was amazing. Every staff person we saw was helpful and asked if there was anything they could do for us. Food was tasty and again service was excellent. They are working on the pool so the view isn't very nice currently but there wasn't any undue noise.

We recently returned from an Anniversary trip to Chateau Elan. The estate was beautiful! We booked an Escape package which included dinner & breakfast for 2 & a bottle of wine. I had also arranged to have a fruit & cheese tray to be in our room on arrival.
We arrived to the room to find a perfectly chilled bottle of wine , but no fruit & cheesr. The room was very clean with nice decor. I had requested a room with a view but only had a view of the parking lot.

We decided to choose the versaillies rest. For our dinner. We were promptly seated & greeted by our server. She took our wine order. She recommended that we do the dinner buffet instead of ordering from the menu. I normally hate buffets but trust the staff when they make recommendations on the menu. The food haf quite obviously been on the
buffet for hours. The lobster bisque was dark brown & tasted burnt. Neither my husband or I could eat more than 1 bite. The salad bar was very sparce. The flank steak was extremely tough, the chicken hard from being in the warmer so long. The side offerings were few and poor quality. The desserts were the only pleasant part of the entire meal.
Our server disappeared. She finally showed back up after desserts were finished to offer us coffee. The coffee was perfect.

Dinner was so terrible we skipped breakfast even though we had paid for it with the package. We went up 1 exit to cracker barrel for breakfast & came back to tour the winery.

Samantha at the winery was awesome. We enjoyed the tour & tasting. We are in love with the Raspberry infused wine they offer.

Long story short, stay & drink but don't eat!
