We have stayed here a number of times before the last time nearly 8 years ago. Much has changed but much is still the same. We again chose to stay in the main building and the rooms are furnished in the classic style - a sort of faded elegance. The bathrooms and particularly the toilet area does not meet modern expectations and is the same as 8 years ago. The mattress really needs upgrading it is solid to say the least. but the room is airy and had a wonderful view over the grounds at the back.The curtains are a nightmare to close and basically don't well not very well. The moat still lacks water due to a sink hole problem - will it ever be fixed? Walk down the stairs of the Chateau and you can forgive all the short comings of the bedroom - almost. The restaurant has now moved to the Orangerie which is outside the main house and there are some new rooms above the Orangerie. Why wasn't some of the money spent on upgrading the existing bedrooms?
The meal in the Orangerie was truly amazing - a lot better than the food the last time we stayed. It was imaginative and beautifully presented by charming staff. The wine list was as extensive as you would expect.
Breakfast was in the main building and very pleasant.
The location is good, the building is beautiful and we enjoyed the stay - but it was overpriced - by a long way. But you pay for staying in a Chateau. Lovely but not value for money. Maybe we will be back in another eight years - maybe.
