I so much want to give the chateau 5 stars, but I just can't. Driving down the old-world drive and pulling up in front of the centuries old chateau, I thought we had picked the perfect home base for our family of four while touring the D-Day beaches. Check in was easy, but hauling our suitcases up the narrow spiral staircase to the third floor tower family room was not. Don't get me wrong, I love the tower stairs, it just might be great to get some help from someone working at the chateau to bring everything up to our room. Speaking of our room, it is a charming room with a four post bed, a table with chairs set under a small tower window and a second small room with two twin beds and a spacious sky light window that opens up to the beautiful grounds of the property. That said, the bedding was extremely old and very tired. The large bed was comfortable enough, but the musty smell was not very comforting. As mentioned in other posts, there are spider webs and dead (and live) bugs in the window sills and corners of the room. The floor coverings placed over the tile floor have seen better days, and I decided to wear flip flops around the room. The kids' room was a bit dirtier than ours. The pink pillows that my son immediately moved off his bed where very old and dusty. They should not have been on the bed or in the room for that matter. The bathroom was cute, but not very practical. The sunken tub with shower head was hard to use without getting the bathroom all wet. While the website says there is wireless, there is not wireless in the tower. Our breakfast was not on time (we were trying to make an early D-Day tour time), and it seemed that it might have been sitting out all night-croissants a bit stale. We did have a wonderful experience at the restaurant! The food was great and our waitress made our night! She did not speak English, but between my sons' French and Google translator, we learned and laughed a lot while enjoying our dinner. If it were not for our restaurant experience, my service rating would be a 1. The chateau has so much potential! I hope the owners will read these posts and make a few needed service and facility changes (without taking away the historic, chateau charm-really a good clean and new bedding would be a great start) and then, this could easily be a five star chateau!
