Just back from a two day conference at this fantastic chateau / castle. Location was first class; the surrounding area was excellent, and conference facilities were second to none.
There was free WIFI throughout the venue, but some of my colleagues had blackspots in their rooms(in which case - they just checked their mails etc in the the general conference area of the venue).
But this was let down by the buffet breakfast, lunch and evening meals, which were just average (not only my opionion - but also of my colleagues). We also agreed that the drink prices in the bar were expensive, ie a small glass of white wine (125ml) was €8 - which left a sour taste in our mouth (pardon the pun) - shame really - otherwise I would've given a five star review.
One other thing - no survey or feedback form to complete on departure - which was a bit strange.
