“Could be better”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

To rate this hotel 'average' overall is perhaps a little harsh but it doesn't merit a 'very good' rating. It's a lovely characterful building with a fine hilltop outlook, and yet it could be so much better than our experience suggested.
On a Friday night in June we were two of only four overnight guests, which immediately takes away any sense of atmosphere when dining (this is not an area with a large number of likely alternative options). On arrival and again at check-out, the hotel appeared to be one-man (or one-woman) operated, and whilst the staff are certainly friendly and willing, they are stretched.
The bedroom had a magnificent view over the hotel courtyard (nice for a drink after arrival/pre dinner) and countryside beyond, but the room decor is of the quirky/dated French hotel style. The room and bathroom are adequately equipped and it is certainly a quiet area for sleeping. Dinner was good quality (they recommended what turned out to be a brilliant 'sabayon' dessert, made with local Orval beer). The room rate is comparatively reasonable but we left feeling that the place was just slightly 'faded' and not making the most of its undoubted potential.

We booked this hotel/chateau as it was included in a gift box. It's really a charming place to stay but don't expect perfect first-class hotel experience.
No problem with the friendliness, as the staff is eager to show interesting places in and around Virton and across the French border. Always helpful, for example we missed a bath plug and they searched all around the chateau to find another one.
The room was nice and big, not too modern, but that doesn't mind in this historical setting.
Breakfast was ok, what you can expect.
Dinner wasn't special and we found it too pricy for what it was. I'd choose the next time to have dinner in the surroundings with more quality for this price.
Overall, good choice for a pleasant and historical stay in the 'pays de Gaume'!
PS. If you have a stay in snowy winter, expect a 'heavy climb' with the car to reach the chateau. For joggers & bikers, you'll have fun as hell around Latour!

Do not miss this hotel if you are in the area. It has none of the facilities associated with a modern built hotel but it has the advantage of being an exceptionally well mainatained historic building. The rooms are clean and spacious whilst the courtyard was the most relaxing place to sit for a quiet drink you could ever imagine and the waiter and other staff were both courteous and helpfull.
We had a three course meal which was delicious and well presented and despite having several drinks and bottles of wine during the stay the final bill wasnt a shocker in the least. You willl not be dissapointed if you are looking for an oldy worldy quiet location to relax during a Belgian holiday, we will be staying again.

Room Tip: My tip would be take whatever you are offered and get a pleasant suprise because all of our group we...

this hotel was once in possession of the wealthy baillet latour family, the hotel was completely build up again because it was a ruin, the chef gives a good 3 course diner.
winter tires are needed when you come in winter season , because this hotel is to be found in a hilly region in belgium

Room Tip: when you can book a room at the back of the hotel , nice view from room

When I arrived the place was like a hurricane, all chinese workers with no local language knowledge... And even they didn't know how to start up the tv-set. The room was in terrible state, carpet not cleaned in the past 20 years I think as were the sheets and blankets ( I think left over from WOII). Electricity was hanging out of the walls, bath has survived many generations. The bed was taking 90% of the space. Mold was having a homeparty! Breakfast was expensive, and not eatable. I had booked for 5 days, and left after 1 night with eyes open...

I went here last month on a business trip. The hotel is located in a 'chateau' and has quite a large number of rooms. I had a large, clean room with seperate bathroom. I think all rooms are the alike.

I also took dinner in the hotel, the card is limited, but the quality of products is very good and fresh.

I speak very well french, so no problems for me, but I had to help some Dutch guests out as the waitress did not speak a single word english, german or dutch.

This is a little bit a pity I think

Reviewed 18 August 2009

Upon arrival we were surprised to learn that the Receptionist and staff did not speak English which could pose a problem in the case of non-French speakers. Surprising really as the location is so close to Luxembourg. The room was very basic with wiring hanging from the ceiling with no light attached, the old freestanding wooden wardrobe only had wire coathangers, the bathroom had a shower which when used flooded the entire floor, and there was a gap around the bedroom door frame which allowed us to see into the corridor outside. All the hotel windows were in need of a good clean. The saving grace was the quality of the Table d'Hote dinner, which consisted of a 4-course meal for 29 euros per head, excluding wine.
The location on top of a hill provided nice views, but in truth the stay at the Chateau de Latour was most disappointing compared with the impression given by the hotel website
