Having stayed here many years ago, when it still had a restaurant, we were pleased to see it back in lists. Stayed 2 nights at the beginning of the month in a very comfortable room overlooking the Loire. We were the only guests yet a full breakfast buffet was laid out, which we thoroughly enjoyed in the very smart and... More

Just stayed for one night, as we came to Gien for one purpose only, for the Gien Porcelian. Found this hotel, after spending lot's of money at the factory. The hotel is very quite, looks over the Loire River. Our room was lovely, with two bathrooms, really a suite, all very nice. The hotel hasn't got a lift, that's why... More

We have been staying here for almost 30 years, in this lovley little town on the Loire. The hotel changed hands several year ago and - sadly -it is now just bed & breakfast - but the faded glory of past triumphs linger- and you couldn't find a better spot on this east side of the Loire valley. Rooms are... More

Great location overlooking the wide and calmly flowing Loire, just a stones throw from the picturesque bridge. The hotel was perhaps at its peak a few years ago but the room I had was spacious, quiet, well maintained and clean, slightly drab but never the less more than good enough. Breakfast was fine with a lady ensuring that everything went... More

We stayed two nights here - towards the beginning of a cycle trip and two weeks later towards the end. Both times the welcome could not have been bettered, our rooms were of a good size with great views over the Loire and the bathrooms similarly large. The breakfasts were excellent.

Our room on the third floor (132) was very nice in two parts, the first one with a sofa and a table and the other part with a comfortable double bed. Cost 100 euro per night. No elevator. Nice view overlooking the Loire river. The wireless internet didn't work everywhere in the room. You had to sit in one corner... More

I can't see how the other hotels can be a match a to Le Rivage. Nice building with excellent view overlooking Loire. We got a suite that was very nice. Clean, good beds, nice staff. Breakfast cost extra but was also nice.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here, the 1st time being about 7 years ago. The hotel has been well maintained and it has nice sized rooms. I stayed in a deluxe room which was significantly larger than the standard room my friend stayed in. The restaurant that had been in the hotel has now closed. There is... More

We had a large room which has a bed settee and could sleep three if necessary.It had one toilet, one bathroom and a shower room and views across the river Loire. Although the hotel does not... More
