I'd looked at the Chateau d'Etoges a few times as a possibility for an overnight stop in France, but never been sure, maybe because of some of the negative reviews, but on the basis of one night here in early June we've been missing out as a consequence of my caution. Our room in the Orangerie was good; bright, pleasant and above all quiet (we worried about noise from below but needn't have). Like others, I noticed the aroma from the smokers on the terrace below, but that was a small negative. We both had a very good night's sleep. The meal was excellent. Michelin star quality on the basis of my experiences; imaginatively presented and with good flavours. I enjoyed, in turn, my langoustines, turbot and beef (great oxtail). Not cheap, compared say to eating well in London, but reasonable for these (rather more than once was the case) expensive days in France. A good wine list, with some excellent champagne. Staff were friendly, good humoured, and even funny. The maitre d' left a great impression. Parking is easy. The grounds of the chateau are attractive, with an interesting garden tucked away. We'll be back quite quickly.
