I had read the reviews and was a little concerned about staying here for 2 nights as a part of a tour. We ended up having a wonderful experience and I think the negative comments come from people who didn't understand the nature of the place.
There has been significant criticism because the owners don't like you drinking your own wine at the tables on the patio or in front of the hotel. This is because those tables are like a restaurant's table to them. They are put there for guests who are ordering drinks although it is not required to sit at them. You wouldn't bring your own bottle of alcohol to a bar and expect to drink it there and although the atmosphere is different, I don't fault the owners for requesting this of guests.
It is true that the Chateau is not near anything but that doesn't mean you have to eat there. The reception area was happy to call a cab and make a restaurant reservation for us to go into Coeur Cheverny for dinner and we had a wonderful meal at a place called Les Trois Marchand. We stayed in the main building which does not have air conditioning but does have fans and we were very comfortable (it was a cool week for August though). Other people on the tour stayed in the newer building and had great things to say about their rooms. Our kids used the pool and enjoyed that as well.
The breakfast was very nice and we ate dinner at the Chateau with the tour one night and I thought the food was fine but not outstanding (not enough choice for me) so I'd recommend going into town. The menu is displayed prominently so you can decide easily.
I would say that maybe a coat of paint on the outside of the chateau would spruce it up a bit but overall we had a really great experience there.
