The chateau de Marcay is a very nice chateau, quietly situated in the Loire valley. We had a very nice superior room in the chateau overlooking the vast grounds. The bathroom was huge. Unfortunately it was rather chilly when we stayed at the Marcay so we didn't use the swimming pool, but had drinks on the terrace at the backside of the hotel. We had a more than excellent dinner -menu Les pieds sous la table"- in the restaurant. The sommelier gave us a very good advice. Staff is highly professional and friendly. For that reason we were rather disappointed next morning when we had breakfast. Just a little lad who couldn't tell us if we could get some fried eggs for breakfast and when we finally got the eggs, they were a bit burned and it took the lad more than 5 minutes (eggs cold) to find us some salt and pepper. The assortment of the breakfast was not what we had expected. Unbelievable that the food came out of the same kitchen as the dinner the night before and breakfast staff so unprofessional. Not very clever: it's the last impression you keep in mind. Anyway it has negatively influenced our review on staff and value. We hope when we come again this disadvantage will be solved.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the castle on the backside, the front side is less quiet (guests leaving etc.)

Our stay at Chateau de Marcay was just perfect. An elegantly decorated room in a classic Loire Valley Chateau, what more could you ask for.
Chateau de Marcay is well positioned to enable visits to the best of the Loire Chateaus and a quite and peaceful retreat after a day of sightseeing.
If you stay here you must book for dinner, it is a 5 star gourmet experience. We spent 5 weeks in Europe and rated this the best meal we had on the trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main Chateau building

Our room was on the second floor looking out over the countryside and the back patio area. A very nice, spacious room with large bathroom. I had difficulty figuring out the knobs for the shower, but that was a very minor distraction. Sparkling wine and hors d'oeuvres on the patio, an excellent meal with wine in the dining room, and sparkling conversation in the bar and lounge areas. Very helpful staff.

The hotel has rooms in various parts of the chateau and some in an annex. Each one is delightfully decorated and different from another. The staff are very helpful and the restaurant served a good choice of dishes. Its not far from Chinon, an old town that is well worth a visit.
Would I return - yes,definitely!

We spent one night at the Chateau de Marcay and only wish that we had more time there. We had a huge, beautiful room in the Castle. The grounds were beautiful and the views incredible. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and both meals were excellent.

Room Tip: Request a corner room in the front of the chateau.
