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

From the reviews on trip advisor we arrived at this hostel not expecting too much. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were large and very clean, with ample storage opportunities. The staff were friendly, helping us carry our suitcases up the stairs. The wifi worked well and was surprisingly quick. The location was excellent, right next to the Chateau!... More

Hostel du Roy is a budget minded tourist hotel right next to the famous Chateau de Chenonceau. It is a great value. We had dinner, breakfast and the room for the same price we paid for a room elsewhere in France. It is not luxurious: thread worn rugs on wooden floors, thin walls, terrible beds, a small table and chair.... More

We were expecting a simple hotel , but it actually was a lot sadder than in the photos . It was around the corner from Chenonceau which was great but there are much nicer hotels for almost the same price in the same area . We booked to stay for 4 nights and we were driving from Normandy and due... More

Contrary to previous reviews we found the staff here to be exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was perfectly comfortable although the bathroom was not quite perfect and a little more attention would be advisable. The restaurant was very pleasant and nicely decorated and although the dinner was not cordon bleu it was perfectly adequate. The hotel is very conveniently... More

As a French tour-guide this is my duty to tell in the language most people would understand that the food served to the groups of tourists I take there (always booked by an agency abroad) is s*** . It makes me so ashamed of my own country! The place is awful, the staff is dull and impolite. The owners are... More
