Our experience was elevated right from the get go. We visited the chateau for our delayed honeymoon (thanks, COVID) and we had booked a regular room, but found ourselves pleasantly surprised when we were told we'd been upgraded to the Gold suite tier. Overall, we had an absolutely wonderful stay and enjoyed all the amenities thoroughly, right from the poolside bar, to all the daily activities offered by the Fairmont, ending our last night with a quick spa appointment. Our nights were made even better with live music at The Mallard, and the revelry and ambience there was a great start back into this new, old normalcy. Could not have asked for a better rejuvenating weekend, made even more relaxing thanks to the wonderful staff! Special kudos to the room service and kitchen staff who accommodated a very late night dessert for us despite the kitchen officially closing, as well as the Fairmont's on-call car service, which made commuting to and from the village an absolute breeze.

Rooms were close to $500 night by time you pay all the taxes and resort fee. They were suffering this weekend from complete lack of service and totally understaffed. Hour plus line to check in and check out and still room is not available for check in. Room itself could be upgraded smelt a bit damp but so did the hallway. Pool deck was a big mess no one cleaning up towels or cups etc. Room service took a long long time. And the in room movies were not working . 2 stars because this is what I would expect from a 2 star resort. Hotel was not fully booked but lack of staff is causing issues. Mgmt fault for overbooking and over working the existing staff. Room was the basic king room 3rd floor forest view with the sidewalk path right there that was bit noisy as people chatted and walked by . Decor was a bit old and bathroom is big but the shower was a tiny 36" neo angle barely big enough for 1. And the bathtub I could squish into needed but from from luxury ( it is an older 5ft x 2 ft tub that holds maybe 9" of water basically big enough for a 6 year old ) Read less
