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.

We were on the 3rd floor – room 33 overlooking the street as we had requested. Stayed here 2 nights recently. Can be somewhat noisy at night with the window open but we had a good view of the castle and the church in the park across the street. Bed was small but okay. In an older building, nothing fancy...

On first seeing our room I was disappointed, it was on the top floor, very small and dated. That said the bed was comfy, sheets, towels crisp and fresh and we looked onto the Chateaux. It's in a great position for exploring Blois and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. If you are looking for smart decoration... More

We stayed in the hotel and enjoyed the old but charming interior with its different facets. The staff were very friendly and gave us amap and marked the best places to dine. Breakfast was typically French, nice.

Blois is short of decent hotels. The France et de Guise is opposite the Chateau in Blois town centre and trades heavily on the fact. Rooms are small, breakfast is average (but friendly staff). A much better option is to stay at the Auberge du Centre in Chitenay and visit Chateau Cheverny (much prettier and more to do) and maybe... More

What a friendly family run hotel - I want to say thank you to Vincent and all the staff for your warm and friendly welcome. I have never felt so welcome in a hotel before. I am not surprised it got Trip Advisor 2012. It's a perfect location - 2 mins from shops - 10 mins from train station. Next... More
