I have just used Chateau Elan (CE) for a two day event and it was everything I expected. My event was for 25 CEO's so a particular level of service and discretion was expected.
Brand new. Neutral tones. Plenty of natural light. Fresh air and airconditioning options. Very comfortable all round.
Far from standard hotel fare. Fresh fresh fresh! Good variety. Honest food. Accommodated dietary requirements better than any venue I've used in the past.
Having inspected all room types I would always choose a Spa Villa. These are incredibly large rooms, one bedroom apartment style but still inviting. All rooms are great though.
Exceedingly warm. Accommodating. Delivery-focussed. Always available.
I wouldn't pop CE into the 'large hotel' category per sé, but it is an expansive property housing many guests, functions, spa guests and golfers at once so has a great deal going on. However, CE provided everything they said they would and my experience is that is something difficult for larger hotels to honour.
I am hoping to head back to CE on personal time to take advantage of the spa and other facilities a conference does not allow you time to use.
