Our first room, L'Olivier, was outside the main chateau (as expected); appearances were fine (good view of Mt. Canigou, reasonable size, terrace). Unfortunately, we discovered during the first night (when drapes were drawn) that the room reeked of mildew/mold. When we complained the next morning, we were offered another, inferior room (Pigeonnier)--view of the restaurant, no terrace, smaller); at least...

I have only positive things to say about this hotel. After reading the reviews I was concerned about rooms that are not in the castle itself and food in the restaurant. However, I found the room in the outbuilding cute and clean, with amazing big bathroom and beautiful balacany with the views on the swimming pool and mountains. The only...

My mother and I spent 6 nights at the Chateau. We booked full board so we wouldn't have to worry about anything once on holiday..... and we could just relax and enjoy. Oh, how wrong we were ! Let's start with the positive things. Fairy-tale chateau, beautifully decorated, fabulous, peaceful location. It's like being in another world. Staff very helpful...

At nearly 300 euros a night for a middle category room I expect this to be a treat and it was. The setting and grounds are beautiful and our room on what I would call the 4th floor was large and charming with wonderful view through they very thick walls of the chateaux. We had a drinks in the bar...

This was the last and most opulent hotel on our recent holiday. The chateau suite was exceptional in every way, fabulous views, charming and quirky rooms and immensely comfortable. The downside for us was the restaurant. Having had some wonderful dining experiences in France, the restaurant fell well short of expectations raised by the accommodation. The cooking is adequate if...

The Chateau de Riell belongs to the Relais & Chateau Chain which is a sign for quality. It's run by the sister of "Les Pres d'Eugenie" owner - which again stands for quality. The Chateau de Riell is nested in the scenic mountains above Prades. Already when you arrive and you see the romantic castle you're happy you came. The...

They look after you well here. They are subtly attentive, but unobtrusive. Dominique and her brilliant reception staff speak English and know everything. It is a special, magical place. Stay in the Castle. Eat breakfast on the terrace or in the new Chalet-style add-on. Have scrambled eggs with fresh juice (just squeezed). Enjoy any aspect in your choice of room...

Our room was in the garden, and was beautiful. The chateau is amazing, with a roof top pool. The staff were fantastic, helpful, polite and very discreet. As a vegetarian, I am often ignored in French restaurants, but here, the restaurant were more than happy to cater for me and the food was superb every evening. An extremely relaxed and...

This was the best hotel room I have ever stayed in. It was in the old castle itself, NOT the "kitchenette wing" about which the first reviewer complained bitterly and which I did not see. The bed was even better than at home, the room palatial, the view breathtaking, the quiet absolute. My only complaint was the ear-splitting screech emitted...

We stayed at this Relais and Chateaux property with our two children in July and had a wonderful time. We had a very nice suite of rooms overlooking the pool, towards Mt. Canigou in the Pyrenees. The rooms were beautiful and clean. Service was extremely friendly and helpful. The manager of the hotel provided us with great advice on places...
