Our favourite rooms
Delicately dressed with ombré floral wallpaper, pale wood and the softest of linens, the suites are all enticing. If you’re forced to play favourites, go for a Panoramic Suite – strategically poised at the corner of the building for sweeping vineyard views – or plump for the Marie-Louise Suite, a sprawling hideaway with a private terrace just made for bubbly sundowners.
Pale and interesting, the hotel’s striking infinity pool overlooks the vineyards and has an inviting terrace kitted out with parasols and sunloungers to take in the view. It’s open from April to October and heated, so you can take a dip on sun-kissed spring and autumn days. Open year-round, the 25m heated indoor pool is equally sleek, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and elegant grey loungers strategically positioned to make the most of the tranquil vistas.
Decked out in pale wood and metallic tiles, the Royal Champagne Spa has nine treatment rooms, including two for couples, and you’re free to use the sauna and hammam. Book ahead for body-and-soul ministrations at the hands of expert therapists, from champagne facials to candle massages. High-tech treatments from cult beauty brand Biologique Recherche can be tailored to your needs for a two-hour beauty-and-wellness boost.
Bring some stylish (but sturdy) flats to pootle around the vineyards, plus yoga wear to join in with sun salutations.
The hotel’s public spaces are all accessible to disabled guests. One Garden Junior Suite and one Royal Junior Suite have bathrooms adapted for wheelchair users. Help yourself to soft drinks from the free minibar.
Well-behaved pooches are welcome to stay in any room for €50 a night. They’ll be equally pampered with dog bowls, food and baskets provided by the hotel. See more pet-friendly hotels in Champagne.
Welcome. Extra beds and cots can be added to the rooms, and the restaurants have high chairs, colouring sheets and baby-changing facilities, and will happily cater to little ones with half portions. Babysitting is available for €35 an hour.
