We enjoyed a wonderful 4 days at this grand old hotel. What great host Jacky and Annie were, they were so very helpful with organising a shuttle bus on 2 days to take us to 4 Chateaus, not to mention assisting us with other tourist sites and restaurants to enjoy the local cuisine. Our hotel room was very roomy, warm,... More

Staff at this location were helpful and friendly. Initially our room was on the street side of the hotel...and was too loud..they immediately moved us to a quieter room in the hotel. This is an inexpensive hotel, but clean and centrally located for visiting the chateaus in Loire.

We thank you for your kind review and are happy that you have appreciated our hotel and the team. As you wrote it we have rooms facing the castle and the street and some rooms at the back. So it could be good to mention when you book that the quietness is very important. We hope to welcome you another... More

Okay it is a bit tired and tatty but would much rather have that than a clinical corporate hotel. Receptionist very pleasant and welcoming, not all the creature comforts but happy to dispense with those for the charm.

The Hotel de France et de Guise is a grand, old building in the center of the gorgeous, old town of Blois. A very personable, lovely lady assisted us with our check-in. The rooms were beautifully furnished, super clean and comfortable, as were the bathrooms. Free, well functioning WiFi was offered. The location was amazing, just steps away from a... More

The first room we were booked in to had a terrible water rot smell. We tried to tough it out but had to ask for a another room, it was making me nauseous. The owners were gracious and obliged. The second room was somewhat better but with no wifi reach, a major disappointment as we were reaching the end of... More

Although it's an old hotel with tiny elevator and sort of funky rooms. Our room was very large and they even put in a tea pot for us for tea in the mornings. Breakfasts a bit weak so we skipped them. Very helpful staff and above all great location and great value

I stayed at Hotel France et de Guise in early mid September. My room was located on the top floor at the front of the Hotel and it was extremely spacious. The facilities were excellent although a little dated, however the location and assistance from the staff made up for any minor qualms (a creaky floor). The breakfast was thoroughly... More

Friendly and helpful receptionist and breakfast room staff, and good location, but that's as far as it goes. Unbelievably, on arrival we found the toilet in our bathroom had been used (and I mean 'used'!) and left unflushed, let alone uncleaned. Very run down hotel, dismal and smells dirty. If you like windows open at night, be prepared for a... More

We feel very sorry that you did not find the standard of hotel that you expected. The day of your departure, when you informed us about the toilets " used", our plomber came and repaired the disfunctionment. Regarding the noise in the street, we are located downtown. Most of our clients want a room looking over the casttle but those... More

Lovely character hotel, we asked for a room away from the street which was very quiet. We came by train with our bikes, just rolled down the hill and there is was. Nice big garage for bike storage. Staff are really helpful and friendly, we felt very welcome.
