With a well-deserved reputation for being one of the finest small luxury hotels in the world, your stay at the 19th century Chateau Grand Barrail Hotel Spa Saint Emilion will undoubtedly be unforgettable. In an expansive park-like setting, the hotel is spread out over 4 buildings, giving it more of an intimate at home feel as opposed to a hotel feel. Spend your days leisurely exploring the wine chateaux of Saint Emilion, and come back to enjoy a luxurious spa treatment.

Great romantic break though a little pricey

This was a great chateau hotel and of a very high standard in terms of rooms and amenities. The grounds are spectacular and the surrounding area is lovely. We spent at least a couple hours each day relaxing in the spa - which had a lovely jacuzzi, wet and dry saunas, and some beach loungers. You can just hang out in there reading and relaxing - only a few people would come and go. I think in high season it may not be so easy going. We even swam in the heated outside pool on one of the warmer days and it was a nice size. We hired bikes from the hotel to cycle to St Emilion one day - which was lovely, though 10 EUR per bicycle for a half day we felt was a bit steep (it was more expensive than the car hire!). We stayed 2 nights and I think it was pretty much a 4/5 experience. The only reason it wasn't perfect was that whilst the room had a big balcony and was one of the superior rooms, it was above reception and the room door faced an atrium with the bar/dinner area - nothing inbetween. This could get very noisy at night and you could hear it in the rooms - enough to disturb your sleep. And they'd stack dishes or cups pretty late at night (11pm) and early morning like 7'ish. Rooms elsewhere may not suffer this same problem. Whilst it was an amazing getaway and hotel, I think it was a little overpriced for off-season. Food in the restaurant was quite pricey ~40 EUR mains which was high even compared to pricey St Emilion down the road. I'd recommend the hotel but probably only off-season when it's a little quieter and only if you get a deal. I suspect in high season the price point is about right for the area, but in low, I'm not so sure.

A/C was low and had to resort

A/C was low and had to resort to sleeping with the windows open. Hammam was not hot enough. Expected more for the price we paid.

Stunning landscape set amongst

Stunning landscape set amongst vineyards a short drive (at most 5 minutes) from St. Emilion. Chateaux itself was beautiful and very romantic setting, many french people we spoke to come here for their romantic weekend getaways. Rooms were lovely, clean and new and the shower had horizontal jet streams for a kind of standing spa. The room which was their most basic looked out over the vines with a little balcony and chairs, we spent the evening looking over vineyards with a bottle of wine. The room was by far the largest we have stayed in in europe for that price You can hire bicycles but only for the day and at 10 euros it is not worth it if you only want to go for a short ride somewhere. We had the set menu a the restaurant, it was very good value, apertif and entree were the highlight, mains slightly lacking flavour but still good. Don't get the breakfast. it is $24 euros for some meat, cheese, fruit and coffee and possible to get the identical items in St. Emilion for $4 euro.
