We loved this region when we visited a few weeks ago, and when our family thinks back to those moments that made touring around France so special, even our kids say this hotel was high on the list. Much of the Loire Valley has been developed for tourists on a larger scale than we like visiting. By contrast, Le XII... More

Friendly and professional in all it attempts. A sympathetically restored hotel with all modern services. Good room with powerful air-con (much needed). Flat screen TV, bottled water etc. Amazing restaurant. Some of the best food we have had in France this year. Could do with a little more option for breakfast, but a very minor comment. Loved the whole place.

Great room with wonderful high ceilings. All very clean. To counter previous post, it was very quiet, we had a good nights sleep. Room was On the street and it was s Saturday night so previous come t must have been a one off. Food was fabulous, we went with the degustation with paired wine, very tasty (especially the monkfish)... More

Do not trust the pictures: there is no castle view form the hotel! And the room are very noisy, with no view, sanitary malfunctioning (shower and balneo) with terrible smell. Personnel is unfriendly and not willing to help. Run away from there.

My family and I only stayed one night here and having read the positive reviews, we were not disappointed. The rooms are all up a steep bank to the left of the building, where access is gained over a bridge, into the roof space. Sounds bizarre, but it is actually very well done. We had a two tier room, with... More

We stayed here after visiting Villandray which is a short distance away. The room was very nice , with air con, the meal in the restaurant was one of the best I have had in France. Parking is in the village , but not a problem. The only small niggle was we arrived just before 6pm and the staff did... More

We had read about the restaurant at Hotel Le XII de Luynes and wanted to try it and decided to stay at the hotel also. The hotel was purchased and renovated three years ago by the new owner Jean Pierre Pascal who greeted us when we checked in. The hotel is just 15 km from Tours and is a convenient... More

We stayed one night at the village of Luynes during our trip to visit the different chateaux in the Loire Valley area. It's about 12 km from city of Tours where we were taking the train back to Paris. The hotel was reasonably priced and is a fully renovated 17th century hotel. We got a room that is considered a...

I'm fearful that if I write about this hotel, too many people will find out about it....but it is so wonderful I feel I have to... The rooms are really quaint, modern, clean and comfortable. The staff is very helpful and multi-lingual. A real plus as my French is totally rusty. I don't usually sleep that well in hotels unless... More

I made a Euro Trip with my girlfriend in May / June to Paris and then down to Southern France for some wine and chateaux fun. While driving down, we came to Luynes. This is a diamond town, people are friendly, small and safe! Pulled over to Le XII as we had heard good things from our friends that stayed... More
