we returned to this little gem. Not so little now! I could imagine we almost had the same room - 212 overlooking the square. Then it was Bastille Day, now a busy weekend a bit later in July, and we had a Friday and Saturday stay. But this weekend was a scorcher. The room is small, but very comfy. Lovely... More

The Best Western was excellent. We had a nice little room with a balcony and reasonable size bathroom. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the location in Chinon was superb. Don't be afraid to eat in the square nearby - food is good and prices are OK.

As we drove into the Place du General De Gaulle we started to panic. It is a narrow road around a busy square full of umbrellas and people. My wife went into the hotel and was told to drive to the top of the square and through the archway into the public car park. I put about 3 Euros into... More

Stayed overnight at this hotel on our visit to Chinon to see the fortress. Very nice hotel in a great location. Rooms were clean, Wi-Fi and everything else worked and service staff was reasonably friendly and accommodating. One big drawback was the lack of an elevator even though it was advertised as having one. Negotiating the narrow stairways to the... More

What a wonderful surprise after spending a day on the bike. The room was clean, well-appointed and best of all, air conditioned. The bathroom was modern and had a full shower, which is added bonus especially for my 6' 2' son. However there was a slight gap between the bottom of the shower door and the floor. We were lucky...

The hotel was really well situated and there were lots of good restaurants nearby. The room was clean and well equipped but small and the bathroom was very compact, it would not suit a big person! There is no car park but there is one a few yards away so it was not a problem. We were on the second... More

We are delighted to have stayed at this hotel, the staff were very friendly, the room was clean and it is right in the heart of the town, everything we wanted. The hotel terrace is finished and is very nice, the other works not quite completed, but all been done behind closed doors and did not affect our visit at... More

Having stayed in Chinon before, we wanted a hotel in the centre of the old town, and this was it! Our room overlooked the square with all the (busy) restaurants and bars, but was not noisy at all. The hotel is a quaint old building, sympathetically renovated, and looked freshly decorated throughout. The staff are very friendly and helpful. So... More

Great hotel right in the heart of the town square, with bars and eating places all around, the area becomes all pedestrian in the evening and on Sunday there is a great food market - this is a brilliant location for a hotel. The rooms were large and the bathroom was good, the shower was 'state of the art' (a... More

Friendly, clean and in a very central location. Right by the fortress lift and surrounded by bars and bistro's it is an ideal place to explore Chinon from. Had a very pleasent stay for a couple of nights.
