Stayed one night in this hotel in our Loire Valey trip. The buiding is old but the hotel is very cozy, well decorated. We have a double room at second floor and it was challenging to reach it for the first time because inside the hotel is kind of a labyrinth, but it was fun. The room was medium size,... More

Friendly staff, comfortable room and facilities, great location at the heart of the beautiful old city of Chinon. The hotel does have parking which is secure, private and free, but it is relatively small (which is why, I suspect, the hotel does not advertise it). Nice breakfast (yoghurts, cereal, Danishes, ham, cheese, fresh bread, boiled eggs, orange and apple juice,... More

We really enjoyed a recent visit to Chinon, and our stay at he Hotel de France certainly contributed. We had a lovely room with a Juliet balcony overlooking a lovely, leafy square. The room had recently been refurbished; the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was large and had particularly wonderful shower. Amenities were very good and wifi was fast.... More

Chinon is a wonderful little town , and the hotel proved to be quite nice. As location is everything, it is perfectly situated on the square Charles de Gaulle. We requested and received a second floor room overlooking the square with balcony. Excellent . The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Overall a very nice stay.

Hotel situated in the centre of Chinon. Very good value with well appointed rooms and excellent breakfast included in the price of the room. Lovely open air restaurants just outside the door with good seafood. I unfortunately left my Kindle in the bedroom and this arrived at my home within three days - merci!

Well, what can I say to add to the previous comments about the quality of the staff here? I had the pleasure of dealing with Sandra, who overcame all my problems without losing her smile, with consummate professionalism but also with a nice personal touch. My mother was feeling under the weather but their suite was the perfect place to... More

Excellent in every way- location, comfort, and staff. Chinon is a lovely historic town and this hotel was built in 1577 so has wonderful architecture. The rooms have been modernised and ours had every comfort and a view of the old castle. The staff were exceptional- Rachel even drove us to see the confluence of the Loire as we did... More

We are a family of four two adults and two children. We had not booked in advance. the receptionist was very kind and gave us the suite wich is less expensive than two double rooms. The suite is composed of two rooms and a beautiful and big bathroom. At the beginning I was a little disappointed because it has no... More

Lovely old building and perfect location for the sights of Chinon. There is a garage which although having a dirt floor is fully acceptable. The reception staff could not have been more helpful, taking the role of a tour guide and telling us the best way to explore the city given our limited time here. We forgot our travel adaptor...

Stayed one night during our cycle trip down the Loire valley. Hotel is very centrally located on a pretty treed-square where you can sit and watch the world go by. Hotel is in the midst of a refurbishment and rooms have been redone.- small but adequate. Front rooms are nice, but a bit noisy if musical events in the evening.... More
