Fodor's Review

Considered by some to be an obligatory stop on their tour of Burgundy's vineyards, this château retains glorious vestiges of bygone days: painted ceilings, a gigantic vaulted crypt-cellar (now the dining room), suits of armor, and (some) guest rooms with magnificent beamed ceilings and lovely views. The restaurant's menu includes classic dishes such as fillet of Charolais beef with a creamy mushroom sauce, and comforting old-fashioned desserts such as crêpes Suzette

and Grand Marnier soufflé. After decades on a roll, however, Le Gilly has become too popular for its own good and the on-site conference center doesn't help things.

My favorite hotel

I love the Chateau de Gilly. It has been my splurge when I go to France. I usually stay here near the end of my vacation and take a train back to Paris. The dining is superb and the dining room is amazing. The gothic architecture is worth seeing. The meals are absolutely delicious. I always make sure I have dinner there. It is worth it. However, the rooms with dinner are quite expensive.

January Frozen Souffle

Visiting Beaune in January is magical. Fountain in front of the moat was frozen in time and temperature. Grand open fire in vaulted gentlemens room most welcoming and hard to leave. Elegant cellared Dining Room. Very deep bath.....Uuuuhhhhaaaaa

Dream of a Chateau

I cannot say enough positive about Chateau Gilly. I have been twice, and love it. Not only are the facilities terrific with excellent food at the restaurant, but their service is outstanding. the first time, I was there with my 8/9 year old son and nephew. When i had an accident in dijon one day, ending up in the hospital and unable to drive back, the staff arranged to have someone come pick me up. You cannot go wrong here.

Absolutely no complaints

I would have to say that this hotel is one of the most satisfying places I've stayed at in Europe. The furnishings are wonderful, the rooms spacious, and the staff accommodating. I have to say that the meal I had there was the finest I've ever had!
