Chateau de Pizay

Reviewed December 10, 2013

Stayed at Chateau de Pizay while on a work trip. It was a big group of us. The rooms are beautiful, particularly the lofts which although the bedroom space upstairs is limited the make up with a spacious living area downstairs. Great for one, but I'm not sure about the bedroom space if there are two people sharing the room. The bathrooms are fully and the toilet was separate. The Hotel is on a small wine estate and they have their own cellar which is pretty impressive, we even got a private wine tasting which was great. The meals in the dining room were divine too. The place has a lot of greenry and space, I can imagine its an even greater hit in winter. On the estate there is also a chapel, which made me think this must be a superb wedding venue. Particularly if one is disgustingly welathy and can book out the entire place...which you'd probably have to be because the rooms are PRICEY! That's the one snag in an otherwise awesome place.

A really lovely chateau, rooms very well equipped and good breakfast. We ate in the restaurant which was fairly average compared to other places we've experienced in France, and it was very very expensive.

We stayed here for one night at the start of our holiday. The main building is lovely, an old chateaux. Our room was nice (split level) and in any other hotel we would have been really happy, but because the main building is old, a modern room just doesn't feel right. The bar area is a mix of old and new, which works really well and the dining room is split into different sections which gives it a more intimate feel. Our meal was delicious, the portions just right & very tasty and I had a wonderful soufflé to finish. The service was good but not exceptional. Breakfast is a buffet in the modern part of the hotel, I thought the buffet was extensive and well presented. The hotel has a pool, spa and tennis courts but we didn't use them. We did wander round the gardens and the vineyards which were very pleasant. We stayed the last weekend of September and the hotel appeared to be full.

Talk about curb appeal, this gorgeous property certainly has it in spades with its tree-lined driveway, topiary garden, outdoor restaurant, and setting amid the vineyards. Unfortunately the guest rooms and amenities do not live up to visuals. The bed linens, duvets, and pillows are synthetic. Our room was a split level affair with the bed upstairs but the air conditioner unit was downstairs and hence combined with the poor linens, I was relegated to sleeping on the couch downstairs. The restaurant claims to always be fully booked and yet there are empty tables as other herein have observed. The WiFi although included is pathetically slow. This property could be so much better if they paid attention to some of the details. As it is currently configured, I can't recommend it.

We have been using this hotel for many years, usually using it as an overnight stop over on our way from London, UK, to the South of France, and vice versa. The hotel is in beautiful countryside in the heart of Beaujolais wine country with its own vineyard. The food does justice to the reputation of Lyon as the gastronomic centre of French cuisine. The rooms are a duplex and nicely presented. We have little hesitation in recommending it.

I would highly recommend this hotel for its location, well kept rooms and welcoming staff. It is a great venue for exploring the Beaujolais region with a real taste of luxury in the food, spa and treatment. Lovely area for biking, walking or just wine tasting. Set in its own grounds it is a quiet spot although we went in March had a lovely duplex room that overlooked the outdoor pool which was evidently closed. Only suggestion is that a Relais du Silence and children do not go together! It is a pity that this sort of hotel does not exclude children and babies or have a minimum age e.g. over 12 or something as then it would be a Relais du Silence.

Room Tip: They appear to be all duplex rooms (stairs up) either over a quiet car parking area and rooms facing...

I spent two nights and three days at a small business meeting here in late March. The building and outside grounds are strikingly beautiful as is the surrounding area. Unfortunately my experience went downhill after going inside. First, despite the price tag dont expect anyone to help you carry your bags to your room. The staff are not willing to do that. My room was in the "modern building" adjacent to the old chateau. The room was very strangely designed with the bedroom upstairs and the bathroom downstairs. The bathroom was very outdated, the tub drain kept getting stuck and the shower was only the handheld style which continually fell off of the flimsy mount and into the bathtub. The bed was two beds pushed together with a large depression in the center. It was very uncomfortable- so much so I considered sleeping on the floor one night. The Internet connection throughout the chateau was very slow and often dropped off completely- incredibly frustrating when you are trying to keep up with emails or communicate with family back home. There is no fitness center. The breakfast hall in the "modern building" felt very much like a nursing home for the elderly- ugly and stale. Breakfast was poorly presented and mostly unappetizing. The main restaurant was average at best- especially for France. We were a group of about 14 and during many meals the majority of us were quite disappointed- often sending back main dishes and desserts largely uneaten. Finally, the prices for the bar and the minibar were very expensive. All considered, we were eager for the meeting to end so we could leave the chateau.

Room Tip: Avoid the "modern building"
