Chateau de Mirabeau is one of best Chateau hotels in France and in perfect condition . The hotel with its 40 rooms and all facilities was opened to the public 3 years ago after a 3 year renovation period . The owner is a leading Italian hotel owner and operator with some 20 hotels to his name . The hotel has a 2 stor Michelin restaurant and a great wine selection located as it is in the Bordeaux. It was also arranged for us to visit one of the leading wine houses . A place to inspire and a place to remember ! Collapse

No country in the world that has so many chateau-hotels. Most chateaux are not really worthy of the name however. Mirambeau is certainly one of the exceptions. Everything is perfect. The welcome, the valet parking service, the freshly baked Madeleines and the glass of water that is offered on arrival. Very attentive... Beautiful rooms, completely 'd'époque' restored. Nice swimming pool, agreeable spa. Perfect dinner. Excellent and attentive service throughout our stay. Definitely worth every penny !! We will certainly be back. Collapse

Chateau de Mirambeau is, simply put - heaven. The staff are excellently trained and speak several languages. There is always someone around to assist and they do so with a good attitude. Their restaurant staff have excellent knowledge of their menu and their sommelier is very helpful if you need assistance choosing from the extensive wine menu, or with trying cognac for the first time (like me - and it's divine!). Concierge and reception are very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and will happily take the time to help you plan your day. Nothing seems to be any trouble and they provide this service without it feeling like subservience, which always makes me feel icky. The rooms are luxurious and well appointed - except for the noticeable lack of coffee and tea making facilities. Our party (myself and my parents) had a superior room and a junior suite. I highly recommend the Junior Suite if you have an arrangement like ours (close friends/family) as it gives you a private space where you can gather to spend quiet time together, or enjoy a wine in the afternoon etc. Fair warning - you are in France, and you may not have an actual shower in your room. My room had the typical handheld shower hose in bathtub arrangement. I find this arrangement damn near impossible to shower effectively in so I had my daily shower in my parents' room up the hall. Their Junior Suite had a lovely rain shower with very good pressure. Beds and pillows are very good, which is a refreshing change as I'm tired of going to good hotels that give you those useless feather pillows that dissolve into a pancake five minutes after laying your head on them. I have a bad neck and slept like a baby. The turn-down service is excellent as you come home after dinner and your room is wrapped up snug like the proverbial bug, heavy drapes pulled over the curtains to ensure you sleep for as long as possible without Mr Sun waking you up. The grounds are certainly beautiful but their gardener needs some help - I had to restrain myself from doing some weeding in the garden beds at the back of the chateau. The spa is gorgeous - I highly recommend you get down there and enjoy a hot tub or sauna, or treatment. I had treatments on two different days - my first was an hour massage which was exceptional. My second was a combination body scrub and hour massage which was also very good. I felt so blissed out I was a bit useless afterwards so simply collapsed in my room and enjoyed the beauty of the gardens out of my windows. In short - I would happily stay here again. It is not "close" to Bordeaux, but honestly that is part of its charm. The village is quite small but does have a giant superU so you can buy anything you need there. The region is filled with interesting little villages and plenty of history to visit. We are leaving tomorrow, and after a week of staying here I have to say I'm a bit sad and not quite ready to go. Really the only "complaints" I have is the lack of tea & coffee making facilities in the rooms, and that the restaurant menu doesn't change, so if you're going to stay for a week like we did, it might be wise to investigate somewhere else to eat dinner occasionally, only so you have some variety in your menu. Having said that, the food is *exceptional*, so eating here is a pleasure. Collapse

There are some good sides of the Chateu. Most staff members are very friendly, polite and professional. And the building looks really nice, from the outside. The indoor pool, sauna, steambath and hot tub must be really nice in the colder months. In the summer, you hang out around the outdoor pool, and that pool is small and looks cheap, at least it is very clean and you have only very few kids making some noise, due to the fact, that this is not a cheap place. If you expect the chateau to be stripped down to the bare walls and totally redone, you are dead wrong. The interior is old. You can see it and you can smell it. Okay, it doesn't smell like dead rats or dead people, but it's not like a super luxurious new chateau Hotel, which are indeed hard to find in France. But it is not hard to find a Chateau with nice views. Almost none of the rooms do have nice views, you just see a few trees in front of you, almost none of the rooms has a balcony, and, what in my opinion is worst: There is no outside seating at the restaurant. I visited this place in the middle of the summer and I had no desire to dine in a dark chamber with all those old furnitures and ghosts flying around. So if you come in the winter or don't like sunlight in general, or if you have a smelling disability, this place may be just for you. So much for the fun part. Now the more serious problem about this place: Breakfast is not cheap, so you expect a little something in return. And this point, I would like to remind you that France is the Country of Cheese. At the buffet, you get offers slices of Cheddar, Emmentaler and some unidentifiable analog cheese. And If you don't want scrambled eggs (which were probably made by liquid eggs sold in containers), they charge you for your special order. The Manageress of the Breakfast was annoyingly unfriendly. Everything else on the buffet was average for a 4* hotel. There might be not much better Hotels around, so in the future, I'll avoid that region and head further south to Bordeaux... Collapse

A great place , very impressive building and garden with all the facilities- ( spa , swimming pool, tennis court ) - very confortable rooms - restaurant is great - special mention for the head sommelier who get us 2 fantastic magnum of wines which none of us heard about and which were outstanding, plus , laurent , did not choose the most expensive wines , he just adapted it to the crowd- a very enjoyable moment , thanks to him ! The only regret is : 1/ The selection at the cognac room is too narrowed ( it would be nice to have more brands ) 2/ in the rooms , no wine & spirit list Overall , a great place , I would recommend you to stay there !
