We have just spent 4 days at this hotel and restaurant - it is still as good as it ever was. Absolutely fantastic food and restaurant plus the wine cellar is simply unsurpassed. Accommodation is fine, if just slightly old fashioned but very comfortable - the family run facility is just quite charming. Location on the bank of the river... More

The Manoir is a charming traditional old world hotel in a picturesque setting on the banks of the Loire. If you are looking for "boutique" and high tech this wont be for you but if you want romantic, relaxed and charming , this is the place. The staff are polite and helpful and the restaurant is excellent and represents very... More

Fine french hotel. Not a design hotel, but what else can one expect in an 18th century building. Nice room, good (but small) bed and bathroom not very convenient. Very low toilet ! Good located for cycletours along the river to various castles / gardens. Pity we had poor wheather during our 5 nights stay. We had great diners twice... More

On our way back from a holiday to Spain, travelling trough France, we decided to pick a spot between Tours and Orleans in de Loire area. Our car navigation system delivered us a list of hotels and we just picked one. Arrival at the hotel promised us a Grand hotel in a landhouse style accomodation. On this friday night the... More

Manoir Bel Air is a the sort of French country hotel you always dream of finding but rarely do. It's in a lovely setting, backing right onto the Loire on the edge of a small village, but well enough off the road to be silent. It's surrounded by pleasant gardens, and has roomy common areas where you can sit and... More

An impressive entrance. Our bikes were safely stored away at the back of the hotel. Our room was pleasant with views over The Loire. A lovely bright dining room. The evening meal was excellent. Large portions. The lamb was delicious.

A pleasant surprise - excellent accomodation, very good food and impeccable service. We stayed just the one night as we were passing through the area. Located only a few minutes from the A10 autoroute, the location is superb with excellent views of the Loire river - re-inforced by the possibility to stroll or cycle for miles just above the riverbank....

We stumbled across Manoir Bel Air, at lunch time, while visiting local chateaus. It is a Grand hotel overlooking the Loire river, with beautiful grounds and an outstanding restaurant. The menu, posted at their entrance, presents a Fine dining experience in the country side of France. They have a fantastic and reasonably priced wine selection and as we settled on... More

We stayed 2 nites, The last of our 7 nites breakaway from Rouen. We come to it by chance. Very accessible from the main road.The reception is manned by a no fussed lady. Take it or leave it style. The elderly sweet guy in the evening is more cheerful. I think he's the owner. We have the choice of two... More
