Beautiful house in a lovely location. The staff took a personal interest in making us welcome and looking after our needs. We were on the top floor. Access was via a very interesting staircase which might prove to be a challenge for some folk. The hotel plans to install a new access later this year so this issue will hopefully soon be resolved.
the surprise menu where you ate what he chef prepared was excellent
The Chateau was fantastic. Beautiful rooms and grounds, lovely friendly staff. Very relaxing and a short walk to a nice little town. The meals were also excellent and great value for money. Highly recommended, you must stay here!
Needs money throwing at it but that said a nice experience
Breakfasts were excellent Not particularly
This chateau is absolutely marvelous! We were warmly welcomed by the owners who made our stay very pleasant and personal. The rooms are nice and spacious. I can especially recommend you the diners. There’s no need to go out for a meal since this chateau serves amazing 5-course meals. This chateau is highly recommendable for a few days of relaxing vacation!
The relaxed and friendly atmosphere
Lovely hotel, but the internet and the hotel info stated the evening meal was 35 Euro, to include 4 wines. We were charged 12 Euro each for the wine and 2 Euro for a sachet of coffee. It was great food, but we left feeling very cheated.
What a lovely little chateau. Food was excellent value - 5 courses with a different wine with each course. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Wish we could have stayed for longer. Would recommend this place to anyone.
Friendly welcoming owner. Very welcome cup of tea on arrival. Beautiful room in a fascinating chateau. Lovely well maintained grounds.Unfortunately due to illness we had to leave after only one night.
The hotel was rececently renovated and rooms/decor attractive. Staff friendly and accomodating.Restaurant is really superb- an experience not to be missed. Very pleased overall - would return if in the area again No room service - not good for a 4 star hotel
We had a lovely stay in the hotel. It is really beautiful and the staff is excellent. The hotel is expensive and the rooms are nice, but not for that money. We had a promotion, so for us it was fine.
I have nothing to say ; all was brilliant ; I hope I'll come back sometime
Not interested in golf this trip, but liked the surroundings The "Chateau" was not quite up to the pictures on the Internet.
What can I say? it s a castle right out of a fairy tale. I can't wait to go back..
Despite our bad experience with the room, the settings of the castle are beautiful and quiet, although a little far off from the Loire castles. Expect to drive at least 1 hour to most of the castles. There is a fancy and expensive "restaurant gastronomique" and a brasserie, where you can eat on the terrace for very reasonable prices. For breakfast, we had to beg a bit to get a coffee and a croissant in the brasserie but we got it; the other option is to pay 20 Euros for a not very remarkable breakfast buffet. Bathrooms were much better than the rooms. Careful - some of the Classic Rooms in the Castle (2nd floor, e.g. 203) are clearly substandard for a 4 star- and with prices on this site lower than the regular price - guess who gets them. We had a tiny little room with an even tinier bullseye window that opened only half way and should have been replaced years back. Result: No air, 29 degrees Celsius in the room at midnight with the window open, while outside it was a fresh night around 18 degrees. We slept very little, and had to fight to be moved into another room for the remaining 2 nights. Second room was OK. Still, for a 4 star place, I would have expected the castle to be much better renovated and much cleaner, like others we've seen in France. A bit shabby in some details.
Great ambience, lovely decor, peaceful surroundings No control over other guests - had to complain at 2.15 a.m. about a very noisy party going on in the lounge directly below.
Beautiful setting and reception staff were lovely. Restuarant over priced and too fussy, we eat out a lot but this is way over the top. Waiter also very stuffy and quite rude at times
No Wi-Fi. It is far away from restaurants and facilities and charged quite a lot for such location. We spent more than an hour to find a place to eat. The hotel restaurant is very expensive and not operating on Sunday evening.
We thought that the hotel was excellent and the proprieter was very charming and accommodating. When he saw that my partner had difficulty walking he immediatley changed our room to a ground floor one. We would definately stay there again. No bad points at all.
Very nice typicallly french hotel in the centre of a small town with excellent food
clean, nice, comfortable. No fuss. We didn't eat in the Resturant, but where told by family living in the area that it is a great place to dine.
We stayed here twice, on our outward and return journeys. The demi pension with breakfast and evening meal included was excellent.
The staff phone within 5 minutes of booking to confirm our stay & followed up with a further call on the day of arrival. The bedding was clean. Were not aware when booking that there were no restuarant facilities at the hotel on the Sunday and there was no where to eat in the village! Having travelled for 8 hrs did not want to have to travel 8klms to a restaurant. The overall appearance of the hotel was tired and shabby. There were no tea & coffee making facilites.
Comfortable room and bed. Nowhere obvious to buy drinks through the day. No table service offered for drinks when sat at a table outside. Slow table service in restaurant and high prices (although the food was very good).
Very good and warm reception, excellent family rooms! The location was very good, just 5 km of the highway and very rural and calm. The service in the restaurant was not that good.
It was very clean and the staff were friendly. Both the stay and breakfast were good value for money. It was well situated near the main route but in a small and quiet village.
Nice and friendly no
Comfort,good food and wine ,easy access,welcoming staff at a reasonable price.
Staff were friendly and obliging, room comfortable and restaurant excellent although wine list a little expensive
owner friendly nothing
People were very friendly Breakfast is typical french, could be more continental
Traditional friendly small French hotel in centre of town recently restored with new en suite and sanitary fittings and new bedroom furniture. Sattelite TV actually worked - a first for France! We did not dine at hotel as staying with family. Parking was a bit difficult - parking in street made worse by special market during our stay, but we did not mind walking a couple of roads to park.
Attention to detail, friendliness of owners, decor, food. location, terraced gardfen, in fact we were completely happy with this hotel and would recommend to our friends.
The proprietor went out of his way to make our stay a good one, satying late up to welcome us and provide us with a much needed snack. No A/C in the second room, which made sleeping uncomfortable for our sons.
Good location for access to Le Mans. Very helpful staff. Good value for money
Room finished to high standard, showers superb, restaurant menu wonderful, service & staff friendliness excellent 3 visits and nothing to criticise
the room was spacious with beds/matraces of very high quality. the shower is efficient and in perfect state (a rare state in hotels in France of this category) the dining fascilities in the enclosed terrace/courtyard are are very agreeable during hot days. the food is interesting, regional "a l'alsacienne" and served in rather large portions. not expensive and good value for money.
Room was of a good size, very clean and had plenty of storage space as well as an en -suite roomy shower room.Buffet breakfast was superb with plenty of choice.Proprietor and all his staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble.Le Lude is a good location to tour from being within easy reach of Le Mans,Tours and the Loire valley chateaux. The Loir valley was quieter with I would say pleasanter scenery. I would have no hesitation in visiting this Hotel again.
We received an a very warm welcome. Our room was immaculate and the evening meal based on Alsacian cuisine was a really good experience.
