The Chateau Impney is a brilliant example of classic French Chateau style architecture with all that it implies in terms of elegance and romance.
It was built in 1875 by John Corbett, the Salt King, as a present to his wife,
a beautiful French governess. Corbett fell in love with her during a visit to Paris and as both had been enchanted by Versailles and the French Chateaux in the Loire Valley they decided to build their own palace in England.
It's possible to get an Executive room for £64.95 including breakfast so even with 2 people eating in the restaurant (3 course) the whole deal is still less than £100.
Looking on Trip Advisor, the reviews are generally very good, even though the decor is somewhat dated. I know people who have been and are very impressed.
Seems a good deal and given the choice I think I would prefer this to a Premier Lodge.
