More about Chateau D'Etoges Hotel
a wonderful experience
We took our 11 month old baby with some reservation to this romantic Chateau but the staff could not have been more friendily and accomodating and even looked after the baby monitor while we dined(poor signal quality).
The room we stayed in was a superior room within the Chateau and it really is taking a walk back in time. Whilst the decor is fashionably aged it all adds to the ambience of the place.
We booked the gastronomic two day package and were pleased we did. The food is magnificant and the wine/champagne menu is reasonable. The staff within the restaurant are attentive and charming.
The whole surrounding area is very peaceful and quiet and a little supermarket is 5 minutes stroll away.
Overall this was a splendid way to start to our honeymoon and we can't wait to return.
superb, stylish experience
Stayed here at the end of a long week-end in the Champagne region. Real escapism with understated elegance on display at every turn. Staff were all really helpful without being over attentive.
Would reccommend this to anyone looking for some quiet luxury in which to unwind for a while. No TVs in rooms so bring a book.
Do not miss the restaurant, where the food was of the same high standard whichever menu one chose from.
I was very excited to book this hotel after reading the reviews on trip adviser but unfortunately we must be the exception to the rule as we were rather disappointed with our stay:
We arrived very excitedly after a long drive to a warm welcome from the reception desk and were shown to a room which surprisingly was just off the lounge area. Even though our room was clean and tidy and the furnishings were of a good quality, the room itself was very dark and repressive and was extremely cold!
Although our evening meal was of a high standard and the service was faultless, I fear that the dingy atmosphere of our accommodation and our lack of sleep due to fights with the bedclothes may have put us off a return visit!
My advice is:
Please don't be put off but if you do decide to visit this hotel, ensure that you ask for an upstairs room with a view and plenty of heating!
A truly lovely chateau-hotel.
This is a truly elegant chateau. I have stayed at Chateau d'Etoges many times since the present owner first converted it into an hotel. I stayed with my wife and two children this February and, once again, was not disappointed. If you like genuine old-fashioned splendour, there are few places as marvellous as the first floor rooms in the main chateau (though you have to be a bit forgiving of the bathrooms which are somewhat cranky). Set in its own grounds with natural fountains and surrounded by a moat this place really is something special. The dining room has now been moved from the main chateau into the converted orangery (a slight shame, but logical in view of numbers and facilities). Dinner was very good and notably good value. Breakfast, although not very extensive in the range of offerings, was of very good quality. The management and staff are particularly gracious and helpful. My children loved the place and spent ages playing hide-and-seek and on the bicycles. If you are looking for all the mod-cons and electrical gadgets in a double-glazed room, this is not the place for you. If you want the true beauty and elegance of stately, old-fashioned, rural France, you will love it.
Chateau d'Etoges = Beautiful room, great service, wonderful food!
My husband booked a room at the chateau for the majority of our honeymoon when we were touring around the Champagne region by car. The service was amazing! We stayed in "La Tour" and it was very private, perfect for honeymooners. We occasionally ordered bottles of champagne and breakfast to the room and our orders came very quickly.
We also booked some sort of gastronomic package so we had 3 amazing dinners at the restaurant. The staff was very knowledgeable about the local champagnes and wines. The food was excellent, although towards the end of our stay I did feel like the staff was a little tired of us by then. The best part of our meal was the cheese cart which had a ton of delicious cheeses to try.
Also the grounds were kept well so feel free to take a short stroll around. Oh yeah and for those people obsessed with e-mail, you can check your e-mail on a computer by the front desk.
My husband and I stayed there for one night on our way to Reims and it was a really lovely experience. We had booked a standard room for 120 Euro which was quite small compared to the more expensive ones but still charming and big enough with a very comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. The chateau is wonderfully decorated and had a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff was really helpful, especially in the restaurant. We will be back again and this time for a longer stay, it was just so romantik.
Relaxed house party style
We loved our one night stay at Chateau D'Etoges on the way back from the south. It's an easy 2 1/2 to 3 hours drive to Calais.
We'd booked into one of the new rooms above the restaurant and when we arrived they'd upgraded us to the chateau. We didn't say anything but we'd purposely elected the new rooms as the bathrooms always seems so much better, but we were so pleased we ended up in the chateau. Our room was huge and full of history and with the most gorgeous view over gardens. The furnishings are quite, well historic, but it all works in an old sort of a way. You can't help but think who might have slept there over the years. The stone staircase is wide and worn with a beautiful wrought iron balustrade. The piece de resistance is the restaurant. Because we were staying on the Saturday night it was obligatory to have the gastronomique dinner. It was one of those memorable meals where it was all fantastic - the food, the wine, the setting and the service - and none of it pretentious or over-priced.
The grounds are very well kept but not so manicured that you feel like all you can do is walk around them. Loungers are dotted about so if you want to read a book or have a doze you can. They've placed tables and chairs on the small balconies overhanging the moat where you can take a drink at anytime. A particularly lovely way to end the day.
At the end of the driveway beyond the huge wrought iron gates is a small champagne house who are happy to give you a tour of the cellars and explain how champagne is made. At the end you are offered a tasting with no obligation to buy but it was good and not expensive so would be rude not to. We just wish we'd bought more. We can't wait to find an excuse to go back.
Not a chateau experience
We did a lot of research before selecting this Chateau hotel for a 5 night stay. The principal attractions were that the hotel had 20 rooms all of which were in the Chateau or the Tower and that the restaurant was excellent.
We arrived at 4:00pm on the Sunday after a 7 hour journey to be greeted with "We can't can't fit you in for dinner at the restaurant this evening or on the last night of your stay." Needless to say, we didn't find this to be a particularly warm or friendly welcome and in fact ended up having to thump the desk to get anything approaching a reasonable response.
When we were shown to our room we found that we were in the "Orangerie". I don't think so. The smell was redolent of cowsheds or stables. The room resembled a prison cell - completely grey with no decorative features at all. There was a showerhead over the bath but no shower screen or curtain.
When we complained, we were told that the hotel was full and anyway the rooms in the Chateau were more expensive. Price was not an issue. The fact is, that when we booked the hotel, there was no mention of an Orangerie or the fact that the hotel now had 29 rooms not 20. I have posted a photo contrasting our room with the room shown in the publicity material.
We feel absolutely cheated. We could have stayed in an equally good room in a Campanile or Formule hotel and saved €80-90 a night.
If you are considering this hotel, please look at our photo. If you want to stay in a characterless cell then go ahead and book. But if you want to stay in a Chateau, insist on a Chateau or Tower room when you book and don't allow yourself to be cheated as we were.
Beautiful Chateau with warm and friendly staff
We stayed here for 3 nights with our four year old daughter. They were very aice to our daughter and gave us a room with a day bed for her The room had a curtain that could be closed between her area and our bed chamber. We had dinner at the resturant three times - it was so good we wanted to come back again. They were very sweet and accomadating with our daughter as well. The grounds are lovely and you can row a boat around the moat. We plan on coming back!
Fabulous from the cheese trolley to the delightful fluffy hens in the grounds. Only one quibble: there are two dining rooms and staff are slightly more attentive in one of them.
