We chose Azay-Le-Rideau after reading through the Rick Steves travel books as we preferred staying in a smaller, more intimate town. We happened to stay here during the summer soltice festivals and the for such a small town, it was quite lively. However, after the festival, the town was really, really, quiet. For us, this was great, But, if you... More

Perfect for travellers searching for romance and peace. Strategicly located nearby the major Chateaux of Loire, by car. The breakfast is really nice. The acomodations very confortable, bathroom with bathtube...Just great! The restaurant is amazing, but works only by reservation.

Our visit for 2 nights was very much at the end of the season & the hotel was quiet. On arrival it has a classy feel and we were made welcome by the friendly, helpful reception staff. Our room was large, comfortable, clean, delightfully in keeping with the history of the rest of the building, and our only criticism was... More

An 18 century Post House in the lovely town of Azay-le-Rideau. Excellent location in the heart of town. Our spacious room had all the comforts. Queen bed was quite comfortable. Modern bathroom with nice toiletries. Breakfast a bit pricey and not very tasty. Restaurant with limited choices. Staff, very attentive. Private parking on site, quite reasonable.

This is a cute little town, where the main attraction is the chateau. This hotel looks very pretty from the outside, it has a beautiful courtyard, and nice lobby. Our room was on the third floor, and maybe the decor is a bit out of date up there, but it was still very clean and airy. We had a large... More

Lovely hotel with exceptional service. We booked only a day or 2 ahead for an overnight stay on the way to Le Havre. The man on reception was charming and very helpful, telling us about the local area and carrying our bags to the top floor room. The room was a family attic room, really clean and comfortable, with a... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in late June and had a fabulous time in the Loire. The room was very nice and clean. We didn't feel the price was justified in light of the lack of any sort of spark or enthusiasm from the staff. The bar was dead and lifeless, often had to sit and wait...sometimes being the... More
