I stayed here with my partner for a couple of nights. I have been to La Digue quite a few times before but it was his first time on the island. I had heard about Chateau St Cloud as it was one of the only places that you used to be able to stay on La Digue along with La Digue Island Lodge. I understood from the staff that there had been an extensive refurbishment and it definitely feels this way. We had a villa on the hillside and I would definitely recommend this type of room - it is spacious with a separate bathroom (with bath tub) and a balcony to sit out on. To say that it is quite high up, it doesn't feel like there are too many steps to climb to get there but if you don't like steps then ask for a room by the pool.
The hotel is located about a 20 minute walk from the jetty and a 5/10 minute cycle away. It is not on a beach so you need to walk to the beach or cycle there but you can hire a bike easily from a place opposite the hotel and they just add it to your room bill. They have a pool, which looked great to relax by but as I was busy showing my other half the island, I did not have time to do this.
My only criticism of the hotel would be the food, which is just good-average but then Seychelles is not really a foodie destination. However I can say without a doubt that this is the best place I have stayed at on La Digue and it is really good value for money. The staff are really friendly and the service is excellent.
