We chose the Manoir because of the overall good reviews we saw on Tripadviser and it exceeded our expectations. Quiet, clean, comfortable, welcoming and the restaurant provided and exceptional dinner.

This manoir is beautifully kept. Spotlessly clean, large bedrooms,with lovely big bathrooms. Crisp linen on the bed and thick towels. Excellent welcome from the chef patron. We were late arriving but were not rushed into dinner. Very good breakfast, with fresh orange juice, delicious 'proper coffee' excellent variety of jams. The manoir has a Pretty garden with ducks and frogs... More

This manor house hotel in chateaux country was the only attractive sounding place available when at the last minute we decided to go to the Loire valley for three nights. It was a holiday weekend in France and we were hesitating between various destinations. It was expensive, but I decided to splurge based on our experience in a couple of... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Manoir. We dined there every night and each meal was delicious as was the wine selection. Maria and Victor are charming hosts and very helpful with any questions you may have concerning the region. The Manoir has immaculate gardens and our room and bathroom were both very spacious....

Travelling to SW France with a dog, searching for an accommodating hotel that also had good parking and good food we found the Manoir online and made a booking - and are delighted that we did. Maria and Victor are very welcoming, we stayed in the Pavilion, which was excellent for the dog because you can simply open the door... More

We spent one night at the Manoir while exploring the Loire Valley and it was positively charming. Yes, the cramped lift is a little less than luxurious and the room furnishings were somewhat sparse, but on the whole, the property is perfectly charming and serene. If you're looking for five-star luxury, I'd probably skip this property, but it's great value... More

Victor and Maria, the owners are amazing, they speak more than 4 languages fluently, the place is beautiful, Victor cooks (Victor and Maria have studied and graduated at Ecole hôtelière de Lausane). The Manoir de Contres is near to many beautiful castles of the Loire. The rooms are perfect You will love this place

A very nice location ideally situated in the heart of the Loire Valley. It is very easy to visit many beautiful chateaus from this "base camp". The hotel accommodation supports the holiday feeling. Very nice rooms, a good breakfast and a dinner option (very good kitchen, beautiful veranda etc) which is difficult to resist.

The food was good ( but not exciting ), the service was good ( but not exceptional ), the room was good ( and the bed very comfortable ) - ( but lacked a wow factor ) in fact, overall our feeling as we left was one of disappointment. Perhaps, we'd expected more / better. In fairness, everything was okay.... More
