We stayed for two nights at the Chateau Rochcotte as part of our Insight tour and it was much more than expected. From the moment we stepped into the reception area of this beautiful hotel we were mesmerised by the authentic and gracious surroundings. It was truly history coming to life and the best part of all is that we are the ones enjoying being Chateau guests! The grounds are tranquil and beautiful with a 200 year old cedar tree right at the front. This cedar is home to a small grey cuckoo who woke us each morning with it's unique call. We believe each room is unique and on this occasion received the room on the first floor which had large French windows which opened onto a small balcony with a view of this grand old tree. The room was tastefully decorated in the style of the day and as mentioned previously the modern amenities are hidden behind original doors that look like closet doors. In addition to a haidryer and tv, this grand old lady offers a complimentary coffee and tea making facility in the room and totally free wifi! Although there is no fridge (Aussies always look for a fridge) the staff are very willing to provide a bucket of ice. We ate breakfast each morning in the bright and beautiful breakfast room and explored the lounge, library and games room to study the amazing collection of antiques in each room. The terrace was an awesome place for drinks before dinner. There are two points that need to be said however. Number one is that I too smelt the 'cat wee' in our allocated room which actually woke me up, it was quite distressing. I noticed later that afternoon that it also seemed to be in the reception area and no longer obvious in the room. We have put it down to the tree outside, but it would be a good idea for the owners just to check over number 8 just in case. We would love to recommend a stay to our friends in Aus if we could be sure this had been addressed. The food as mentioned previously is of a high standard with wines to match.
