"Just returned from a 2 night stay in this hotel.
After spending hours on the internet trying to find a suitable 4 star hotel and deciding on the Moevenpick Hotel, i was very pleased with my choice.
The hotel was lovely, spotlessly clean with friendly staff. The breakfast was great with so much choice on offer and as it is a buffet breakfast no one would need to go away feeling hungry, it was spot on!
The view onto the lake was great and the whole setting is lovely, and relaxing at the hotels bar/cafe with the noise of the tiny fountains and the perfect scenery made it perfect for me after a days noise and bustle at disney land park. Theres a small sized pool with spa and tiny slide, and a sauna room.
We stayed in a Family Deluxe room. The rooms are excellent, bathroom shower works a treat (which has normally been a issue in previous hotels!)
Maid service each day also.
If i had to fault at all, it would be that there is no coffee/tea making facilities, so next time i go will definatley be taking a travel kettle along.
Also there are no English channels and no video as i remember, but it wasn't a problem for us as we didn't spend much time in the room.
I will definatley be going back to this hotel again."

"Our family consisting of mum, dad and 2-year-old son stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. It was rated 4 star by the Disney land brochure.

When we arrived to check-in the staff were friendly. Good and willing to speak English. Which was very helpful as I could only speak a few words in French!

Our room was immaculate and so was the whole hotel. Very well decorated. A cot was provided and in the room when we arrived. There was a fridge in the room, which we found very useful. TV, phone, hair-dryer, en-suite bath-shower room. Air-conditioning. There was a small children’s play area near the reception. A swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, gym, games room, beauty salon. None of which we used. There is a Disney shop in the hotel.

The breakfast was buffet, hot and cold. Evening meal was buffet also. Both were very nice. Snacks could be bought through the day in the bar. Children were catered for.

Room service was also available. But there was no English menu for this only French and German. We asked at reception for one but they didn’t have any.

We managed to work out some things from the French and German menu and ordered room service. It was very nice.

There was a free shuttle bus running every 10 minutes to Disneyland from the hotel. It took about 10 minutes."

Me any my girlfriend (both aged 19) stay...

"Me any my girlfriend (both aged 19) stayed here on a 4 day stay to visit Disneyland.

The room itself was lovely and tidied everyday. It has a really good safe that you make up your own code for which made us feel safer and the bed was comfortable. The room has a TV but only one English Channel. However it does have German MTV and most programmes are in English but with German subtitles.

The breakfast in the morning was great and we’d have liked to stayed longer to enjoy it but I was dragged to Disneyland early everyday. To get there we used the free shuttle service, which is fast and reliable. However, on our first night we tried the food in the hotels bar. The food was luke warm and seemed straight out of a tin but still cost about 7 pounds.

The drinks in the bar are more expensive than at home but most are also a lot stronger so its arguably worth it.

The staff at the hotel are very eager to help and very friendly and all speak very good English.

The gardens were very pretty especially as it was snowing when we went. Even though it was so cold when we went (minus 2 for the first 2 days) we were never cold as the room has air conditioning. The view from our window was not as terrific but still pretty average.

We got this hotel on a Thomas Cook deal, off-season, of 4 nights for the price of 3 and entry to the park. With this kind of deal it’s hard to go wrong with this lovely hotel."

If you want to take the kids to Disneyla...

"If you want to take the kids to Disneyland Paris and you don’t want the hassle of queues for everything, take them out of season and take them to the Dream Castle Hotel. It’s a fabulous hotel with friendly staff and great facilities (gym, swimming pool, bar, Jacuzzi, etc) but it’s a fraction of the price of the Disney Hotels of a similar quality. Why? Because it’s a 10 minute shuttle bus ride away from the resort - but out of season the buses are rarely crowded yet still run regularly from the same place as the Disney Hotels and take just a couple of minutes longer than the Disney shuttles to reach their destination.

As for going in November - well, I’ve been twice in the summer and November beats it hands down! You don’t have to queue for rides - indeed you can stay on and ride again if you want. You only have to turn up for parades 5 minutes before they start to get a brilliant view. You don’t have to queue for food and the food is immeasurably better at this time of year (presumably because they are catering for smaller numbers?). We queued for just a few minutes for tickets to The Lion King and had fantastic seats. And there are lots of added extras this time of year - the amazing firework and bonfire display on the lake, the daily Christmas tree-lighting ceremony, and lots of other seasonal extras. And at this time of year you get lots of personal attention from the Disneyland staff - we even got to ride with Mickey in the Disney Studios Parade which gave my 7 year old daughter a permanent smile for the rest of the day.

As for the weather - well we were lucky. We didn’t have much rain and it was warm enough to stay out all day. Travel by Euro star took less than 2 hours from Ashford and everything ran like clockwork.

Next time, forget the hassle, forget the queues, forget the bad food and have a real good Disneyland experience - go out of season!!"
