We stayed at Chateau d'Augerville for one night during a week-long driving trip across France. It was a lovely facility and our room was very nice and well-appointed. It met our expectations at 4 stars, the grounds were beautiful and in our room (which was in the castle), our view from the back of the castle was spectacular and the renovated bathroom was very nice.
What wasn't so great... I found the chateau to be touristy; I'm sure this is due to the close proximity to Paris, as well as the golf course. When we visited, there were a lot of souvenirs prominently for sale, which I felt diminished the authenticity of the castle a bit.
We also had mixed feelings about the restaurant. The service was very good and we sat outside by candlelight, which was so elegant. I feel awful to say, though, that it was the worst meal we had during the 8 days in France, due to the way the main course was cooked. I was quite disappointed and the servers didn't inquire why I hadn't touched my food. I am not a picky eater and I found that many other meals on the trip were some of the best I've ever had.
Overall, I happily recommend the hotel if you are staying outside Paris to the south. I'd recommend scouting other restaurants, though.
