First impressions of this hotel do it no favours. A rather dingy entrance/reception area with rooms leading off decorated in the main in brown. Steep winding stairs to first and second floor levels make it unsuitable for disabled people. Our room on the second floor was clean, and the beds reasonably comfortable . The bathroom was L shaped and rather... More

This is a 2 star hotel and is what I expected. It's small but clean. We had the two rooms for four of us and they were comfortable enough (but the kids said they could feel the springs in their mattresses). It was a hot night and we had to keep the windows open and could hear the train but... More

They asked whether we stayed here and since then it took us around 40 minutes between each course. We asked repetitively where our food was. We got shrugs and rude stares. After the meal we expected an included coffee. 30 minutes later we got a tiny thimble worth of coffee. The service was appalling. The restaurant was not busy either.... More

We only stayed one night and were so glad that was all that we had planned to be there. We had two separate rooms for my husband, myself and our two boys, ages 9 and 12. There were no rooms that all four of us could stay in together. The showers have no shower curtains at all; nothing to stop... More

stayed 3 nights here. garden nice for simple dinner. (plastic chairs) hotel itself cosy but noisy . free parking no fan in rooms, so it can be very hot during summer. drinks are very expensive, 2 capucinnos for 12 euros, 1 aqua mineral for 5.5 eur. just used the hotel to start our bike round trips in the beautiful area.

This was our second time at the Hostel du Roy and both times have been very enjoyable. It is within a ten minute walk of the chateau, one of the most beautiful ones in the Loire valley with fantastic gardens and a storied past. We chose it because it was central to the chateaux we wanted to visit. The rooms... More

We stayed in the annex, just down the street from the reception, right on the main street. Our very small room was at the back on the ground floor and although small, was suitable. The room was clean and we had a window out the back which was excellent for drying clothes. The bathroom was pretty dark with a bath,... More

I loved everything about this charming family owned hotel. I stayed for 4 nights while visiting the general area. The room was clean, tastefully decorated with a modern bathroom and very quiet. The hotel staff was friendly and polite. It is located only a two minute walk from Chateau Chanonceau and very close to vineyards, forests with hiking trails and... More

The interior decorator of this hotel really went to town with their love for wallpaper. I counted six different ones from the door of the annexe to our room which had pink and purple wallpaper. The garden behind the hotel was pretty, the beer cheap and the food good BUT it was so noisy in the annexe, due to the... More

This is not a four-star hotel but the rooms are very comfortable and the staff is friendly. We enjoyed one dinner in the downstairs restaurant as well as our breakfasts at the patisserie across the street. The castle is right down the road and the town itself is lovely. Don't fret about the bad reviews. The family suite worked out... More
