This hotel is located just a few steps from the bridge to the old town. From this vantage point you can get the best views of Chinon and its fortress. The hotel is basic, but very clean and cozy. We had free WiFi and the connection was pretty good. The room was spacious and very quiet. The bathroom was spacious... More

Room fairly standard for a French hotel - small, stuffy with a hard mattress and tiny pillows. Bathroom good with excellent shower. Wifi poor in room. Very clean. Lots of passing traffic through the night and lots of people returning after a night out through the early hours of the morning. It's cheap and is only a short walk into... More

We stayed at Saint Jacques for 2 weeks in May/June. It is a family run hotel and they were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was comfortable, clean and good value. There is off road parking available. We had good breakfasts - croissants every day - what a treat! There are 4 restaurants just around the corner from the hotel,... More

The Saint Jacques is just over the river from the main city of Chinon, offers a great view of the Fortress, and an easy, five-minute walk across the Vienne into the heart of the city. It's a lovely family-run hotel, partnering with the Contact-Hotel chain of independents. There's a lovely warm welcome, with nice touches such as umbrellas for when... More

Had a one night stay & was very pleased with the room, the cleanliness and the friendliness of the owners. For the price the room was good. The hotel is just across the river from the town centre. A pleasant 5 minute walk gets you into the middle of the town. Would highly recommend this hotel.

This review is bicycle oriented. The overnight bike storage is excellent. The concierge could not have been more helpful. Clean, quiet and a short walk to the centre of town. Don't miss the fortress. Spectacular. The breakfast was great with pots of homemade jam and preserves. Best of all it is right on the velo a Loire route. Highly recommended... More

This was an overnight stay on our way back from the south of France. It's a great little hotel, 2 star,basic but very clean with all amenities. Free Wifi, TV, secure parking, and just a few minutes walk over a lovely old bridge into Chinon. And best of all you get the best view of the Chateaux from the hotel... More

The hotel is comfortable and well maintained but not luxurious. It is well located just across the river from Chinon centre with parking on site. We found the welcome friendly, and the optional breakfast generous and well priced.

Hotel is in the St Jacques area across the river from the town - but easy to walk to across the bridge. The town is lovely with a historic fortress, great restaurants and interesting shops. Our room was fairly basic but clean and quiet with a comfy bed. The couple who run the hotel were charming and made us very... More

We stayed here on our way South, then again on the way home. The hotel is just the other side of the river from the main town with the restaurants etc. This is great as you can just leave the car at the hotel and it's a lovely stroll into town for the evening. very pleasant hotel, clean and well...
