Restaurant at the entrance to Chateau Chambord. We came for lunch just before they were going to close lunch service. We had little to no expectation since this is a tourist site and we just need food after walking around for 4 hours. The service was adequate however the food was extremely good.

While the hotel is in a great location, it is really a step back in time. The carpet in the room was dirty with smoke burns and we were supposed to get a room with a castle view but ended up with a room at the back of the hotel overlooking the building site for the new/refurbished hotel!

You can't fault the location, views, service and food But the rooms are a big disappointment, at the very least a good clean and lick of paint. But the two we had need new bathrooms, carpet and furniture - if it wasn't for the views they would be an outrageous waste of money

We had a lovely meal of excellent quality. We would definitely recommend if you are wanting a fabulous venue overlooking the chateau with gorgeous food. Why not 5. The childrens menu. I was not happy that my 6 year old grandson was eating an unhealthy meal of chips and breaded fish followed by ice cream.

Although basic in its amenities the dedication and genuine sincerity of the hotel staff make this establishment well worth a visit when visiting the nearby Chateau de Chambord. The young gentleman, Lucas at reception was extremely professional in all manners regarding our stay. Dinner and breakfast with impeccable service.
