Short walk to the Centre of Chinon on a corner near the station. At night quiet outside. The rooms are basic as one expects for this price. The second floor was hot and the beds small and not very pleasant. We did not sleep very well so that was disappointing. Owners are very friendly. Private parking available.

Its a bit of a walk to the centre of Chinon, but for hospitality, you can't beat this place. The owner only speaks French but is very accommodating and amusing. The rooms are well equipped, although it does involve an awkward steep climb up a spiral staircase to the rooms. There is free parking in a gated secure area.

The hotel lies on the border of Chinon, however, is only a 5-10 min walk into the centre of town. On arrival at the Hotel we were greeted by the owner, a young Frenchman with a rather entertaining personality who showed us around. On the following morning of the first night of our stay the owner indicated that he wanted... More

Stopped off here whilst touring by Motorcycle, not quite in the centre of Chinon but a nice walk along the river and you're there. The hotel is quite small but it looks like its been recently refurbished, the owner was really helpful and friendly and told us everything we needed to know about the hotel and local area. There was... More

Takes about 5 minutes to walk to town. It also has a nice... More

About 5 minutes drive out of town. Good value and room had two separate sleeping areas. Perfect for four people. Very comfortable although bathroom was a bit small. Quite a few stairs to climb so be prepared for that. Reception is in the bar area and parking is in a secure area. Breakfast is excellent with quite a bit to... More

We came to this hotel after a disagreement at the Hotel Diderot (fair enough, we didn't have to pay the other one!). The owner was very welcoming and the closed parking very welcome as we were coming off the ferry with the car full of stuff! The room was clean but the decoration is very tired. I think that the...

This place is also called "Belle Epoque". It's got good secure parking, although I parked across the street in the train station car park. It was fairly quiet. The room was spotlessly clean, although the bedspread has probably seen better days. At only 40 euros for a room, I am not complaining! The breakfast was the typical high GI carbohydrate... More
