This chateau hotel lived up to its promise and delivered a bit more. The staff were top notch, smart but not stuffy, obliging but not overfriendly, there when you needed them but not in your face. If there was 6 stars for service, they would have received it. Equally the restaurant deserved a special mention - we ate there each night and once during the day in our three day stay. Each meal was delicious and on the last night the chef cook us a special main dish which was not on the menu. Really, don't both going elsewhere if you are staying here. They've also got a good wine menu. The chateau itself was charming - not just to look at (beautiful, beautiful, beautiful) but inside as well. There were a three places inside where we relaxed when we were not soaking up the sun on the gravel terrace outside, using the swing hanging from a great tree in the grounds or borrowing the hotel's cycles for a ride around the impeccable estate and beyond. The surrounding countryside is charming. The room was a little disappointing (see our room tip) but in the greater context this mattered very little (I surprise myself even by saying this - but it is true). You could while away days here.
