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

what can you say about the Hostel du Roy? very pretty from the outside, you park around the back of the Hostel and walk along the high street for about fifty yards with your cases.after booking in with the surly "Madame" on the reception,we then discovered we were staying in the annexe whose decoration can only be described as shabby...

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

We were booked here by our tour organisers and we were a bit dissapointed that the rooms were basic and tiny. It was clean and the staff were the hotel's redemption - they were charming pleasant and helpful. The charges are modest so you get what you pay for. The food was fine - good quality simple fayre.

We spent 2 nights here and found nothing to complain about. Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms and good location. The food in the restaurant is OK - nothing to write home about but reasonable. If you want better fair there are other places in the village to choose from. All in all good value for the money.

maybe it was the time of year, mid february but this hotel was a big big disappointment. mostly it was food/restaurant related but this impacted so much on the whole place that i could not recommend it despite the fact that the room was reasonably comfortable and clean and the price was fairly cheap.
