We visited this hotel in 1993 on our first trip to Europe for our 10th anniversary. It was the most amazing place - then. The chateau itself is still impressive as are the rooms and service of the staff. But I was disappointed in a number of things this trip over the Easter holiday. The once well polished older staff...

We travelled to Chinon from Paris by car in October 2011 and stood there for 2 nights. This is a truly beautiful place and the Chateau de Marcay is nice small hotel. We stood in the main building in a big room with a surprisingly huge bathroom. Clean, extremely silent and peaceful. Remember we're talking about a hotel far far...

You don't have to be a King or Queen to receive the royal treatment from this chateau. The spacious room was furnished with period antiques and decorated from a time gone by. The bath was huge with shower and bath. The staff was outstanding providing attention to every detail. They organized a gift exchange (Christmas time) with the guests. In...

Awesome and geniune medieval castle in a superb location in the heart of the Loire Valley. The castle have been beautifully renovated and brought to 21st century standards.

Spent one night at the Chateau de Marcay before heading down to Bordeaux on a wine trip across France. This place is stunning!! I only wish I would have been there in the summer so that I could have enjoyed the pool and the gorgeous garden. Dinner in the on site restaurant was fabulous as well!

We found the Chateau's service and setting absolutely awesome.... It's not difficult to be impressed with the setting, the amenities, the architecture, the atmosphere, the food and the service. Overall, we had a lovely room, lovely meals and the weather was fantastic. As well, I thought the whole stay and experience was excellent value for money. I'll do the chateau...

Our family stayed 3 nights in a family room in the old building. The room was clean and suitably luxurious if compact. Fabulous chateau and grounds, attentive staff in the most part (but desperately slow service on our first night in the restaurant). The dinners were very food if expensive - with a massive but rather overpriced wine selection. For...

But I get the feeling there aren't many truly great places out in the Loire. We had a superior room with a garden/view of the pool. Room was fine, but somewhat dated and tired. It had the typical French hand held 'shower'/bath. Fine if you are continental, but most travelers here aren't.... Another French mystery, really. The front desk folks...
