I've just returned to the U.S. after two weeks in France, with one of those weeks relaxing comfortably in Le Grand Monarque, a perfect small French hotel in the town of Azay-le-Rideau. The truth is I have no idea how big the hotel really is because for a solid week, I felt as though I was the only guest. Polite,... More

The Grand Monarque is characterful hotel set in the centre of the town, with private parking for hotel guests. Upon arrival, we received a warm welcome and our bags were carried up to our room while we checked in. Our spacious room was up in the eaves on the second floor, with lovely wooden beams supporting the ceiling. Our room... More

Very helpful staff - absolutely charming. Comfortable rooms and a great location. Parking is handy - and covered - too. It's a pretty village and this is a great place to explore it from. It's not 5 star, but it's good value.

We stayed here while on a bike tour, and it met every expectation. We were shown the bike garage to store our bikes and then given lovely rooms, with both a traditional feel and modern amenities. The staff were so thoughtful and solicitous of our needs - I especially appreciated the fact that while they speak English, they were kind... More

Le Grand Monarque is a great hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are big, comfortable and clean. The style is totally French, do not expect anything else. Because it's a historic chateau, doesn't have elevators, so if you have physical problems it's not the place for you - it's not a problem, it's just a fact.... So,... More

We spent four nights at Le Grand Monarque while in Azay-le-Rideau for a family wedding and were quite pleased. Our room was spacious by French standards with plenty of room for luggage. The air-conditioning worked well, breakfast was good and plentiful with adequate selections and hotel staff was friendly and very helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations. The private parking... More

Staying here has prompted my first trip advisor review... Made the 5 night booking through booking.com which was very easy with no obligation. On arrival we were met by the very friendly Eric who welcomed us with a choice of speaking French or English (we chose English as we were very tired after a long drive). Our bags were whisked...

We loved our stay at this centrally located historic hotel that is part of the fabric of this beautiful town. The owner was very welcoming and clearly had an eye for detail as the hotel is well cared for with modern renovations while maintaining historic charm. Lots of amenities and thoughtful touches for travelers. As we were there in the... More

We stayed here for three nights and were very happy with the hotel. A spacious room in traditional style, comfortable and well maintained, with effective and controllable air conditioning. Very helpful staff and a warm welcome. We took an evening meal on one occasion, which was very high quality and good value, though the menu is short so we dined... More
