“Wonderful experience in Champagne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2008

We stayed for two nights (March 13-15) at the Castel Jeanson in the village of Ay. It was part of a honeymoon trip through Europe. We found the location perfect to explore the Champagne region, close to Epernay and Reims, rather in a quiet and cosy village surrounded by wineyards.

Our reception at the hotel was full of attention and corteousness and we want to acknowledge Mrs Nadia Ricci for all the kindness she rendered us during our stay.

We booked a superior room and got also a nice balcony overlooking the main street. Breakfast was yammy (You should taste the croissant) and there were coffee/tea facilities with cake and crackers in a room in front of the reception.

Everything was special and our stay will be in our most cherished memories.

There are not many restaurans in Ay so you better drive to Epernay if you want to have dinner after 9:00 p.m. If you are in for first class French gastronomy you should taste "la cave au champagne" at the Epernay Village (+/- 5km).

Thanks Castel Jeanson. Thanks Nadia!

We will be back!

We stayed at Castel Jeanson as part of a road trip across France. We had an excellent stay and were suprised that it only has three stars. The location and facilities are excellent. The village is just outside Epernay, we were able to go walking through the vines just behind the hotel and afterwards relax in the pool. They also have a tea room, where hot drinks are available throught the day along with guidebooks about France, wine etc. and if you want they also offer Champagne tasting.

The hotel is relatively expensive but it was worth while, my only complaint was that breakfast was a little meager considering it cost 12€ pp.

We stayed here last minute. The hotel has recently been renovated and has a lovely courtyard. They only had a “classic” room available left which was fine if a little small but all very new with a nice bathroom and aircon. They could make a lot more of the hotel if they had a restaurant. They have a lovely lounge where complimentary tea and coffee available. They hotel is 2 miles outside of Epernay in the village of Ay which has a restaurants, bars and shops. We would defiantly stay here again when next down in Champagne.
