“A peaceful stopover”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

A quiet location although close to the motorway. The Chateau is surrounded by a large amount of land providing excellent car parking to one side of the building. There is a small swimming pool surrounded by a wire fence with a gate, a bad design as it would have been much nicer landscaped into the garden. The pool was too busy when we were there so was not used. Would not recommend the accommodation on the second floor. A long winding staircase led to a small bedroom not helped by the brown decor. The bathroom was extremely small accommodating only one person at a time. The doorman was extremely helpful in taking our three cases up to our room. The garden is a delight and very relaxing sitting by the fountain with a G&T.
No restaurant although one was recommended in the nearby village which was excellent. A very good breakfast provided.

Highly recommended as a stopover especially if you are driving to south of France as its a good half-way point. We booked a family or quad room which turns out not to be in the main Chateau instead they are in the garden looking onto the pool and what in South Africa we would call a "Rondavel" (A rondavel is a westernised version of the African-style hut. The rondavel is usually round or oval in shape) Beautifully done, with fab finishes, well equipped, a huge bath, comfortable beds and great linen ... but you dont really feel part of the chàteau. I would definately recommend this option though if you have young children as I'm sure they would love the freedom of being able to explore/play in the garden. A breakfast hamper is discreetly served in the room - Personally I would have preferred to have been given the option of having breakfast in the breakfast room.
We took a stroll around the village which is rural and delightful with such friendly people.
A big plus are the fantastic restaurants close by. We were recommended to a 'family style' one that had a roaring fireplace and outstanding food - in hindsight probably one of our best meals in France!

Room Tip: If you have young children then choose the "garden" rooms.

This is a beautiful setting just outside the main town of Beaune. The staff were very nice, spoke good english and provided maps and suggestions for restaurants and activities. We stayed in the room facing the pool and much preferred the privacy to staying in the main house. Although I don't have first-hand knowledge of the rooms or noise in the main house. The room is very nice, plenty spacious, with a bit of a step down to the bathroom area. There was a problem with the shower door and it leaked extensively on the floor. There was a little table and chairs outside that we could have used, but didn't have the time. It was about a 5 minute drive to the town of Beaune, so not far to hop out to go to dinner. Overall, it was a very nice place to stay.

My husband had a very good room during his 1st visit. However this time round we had a small room on the 2nd floor of the main building. The room was renovated. But the bath room were clean but do need more cleaning attention.

The high light was the service, the young reception lady was very friendly and helpful and most of all the chef for breakfast was really nice ! The breakfast was good and especially the Croissants and bread were very good.

This chateau has a huge beautiful lawn, perhaps it is close to 4 stars but I don't think it is a 4 starts hotel.

Very easy to find and only 5 minutes from the motorway we found this chateau a hidden gem perfect for very comfortable bed and gorgeous breakfast.
We stayed in their very beautiful wooden outbuildings which felt very romantic (even though we had our three young children with us) The accommodation was very comfortable with great electric blinds and very well equipped bathroom with excellent shower and large separate jacuzzi bath.Our wooden chalet had a view of the chateau where we had breakfast and the outdoor pool
.
After a fantastic night sleep we had a really fabulous French breakfast in the main building which is under a 20 m walk from door to door . A great place to break our joinery or indeed to spend a few days looking at the region.

We stayed at Chateau de Challanges for two nights. The domain on which it is located is nice. They also have a nice bar area even though it was deserted at any point in time. A big disappointment were the rooms: they were not that big but what was really cramp were the bathrooms. The rooms only had one small window and the rooms smelled very badly. One of our rooms had the ugliest decoration ever with the walls and ceiling all in orange. There are no dinner options in the hotel. Breakfast is simple but OK. The staff was friendly. All in all we would not stay here again when visiting Beaune.

Arrived at the Chateau de Challenges as a stop off from Switzerland to Paris. First off whilst driving along the street to the hotel the area appears quite run down and the car park to the hotel didnt appear to have any security so we where already concerned about the security of our car. On arrivial we where hoping to get something to eat then rest for the day however the hotel only serves breakfast and we where advised to travel 3km into town to find food. The final straw was when we where accommodated in what appeared to be a converted garage next to the main house with double doors on to the hotels garden, whilst walking out on to the patio one of the stones lifted up and hurt my wife. We stayed all of 5 minutes before making the decision to leave as this is clearly not a 4* hotel but charging 4* rates. We asked for a refund but where told this was not possible as we had already booked despite our complaints. After reading the other negative reviews of this hotel we are inclined to agree. After staying in over 12 hotels during our road trip this is the only one we have had a problem with - avoid.

Room Tip: No resteraunt or food facilities other than breakfast, no Gym, no other facilities other than you wo...
